    Not recommended for delivery

    On a whim decided to order in from here. tonight. It took over an HOUR! I live 3 blocks away?! When the food got here it was mediocre at best. Fine place to grab a beer but don't bother with take out. Ridiculous

    Awful Service

    First off we made a reservation for a birthday. We were seated in a back corner and were not allowed to move tables. Our waitress, Whitney, was terrible. She took 40 minutes to take our order and never came back to check on us. We had to chase her down to get ranch for our salads and for the check! When we told her we needed to hurry with the check bc we had somewhere to be, she seemed to go even slower. Def won't be back bc neither the food nor the service is worth the price.

    Across the Board, Average. But...

    Bar-B-Que is another one of those tasty things in New York that we're sadly lacking quality places of. Over the last 5 to 7 years, the Barbeque bar has definitely been raised with places like Dinosaur, Hill Country and Rack & Soul. Places like Brother Jimmy's is pretty good, and if you're really in the mood, can be very good. This place is really two-faced. Half the time it's a college drunk fest, and half the time it's a family rib joint. Depending on when you go, you can get the corresponding service (which tends to overlap). I like the ribs here and the sides are OK. Toss back a beer or two and heck, I can't complain. Don't plan on being transported to Memphis though.

    Price went up-quality went down

    Our takeout the mac and cheese was disappointing. Cold and barley any cheese. My wife added a Velvetta slice and put it in the microwave which made it a little better. and the rest of the overall meal was mediocre at best. We're giving this BJs a six month break to see if it improves.

    Over the Top Bad Attitude

    I've lived on the Upper East Side for years and, the few times (2 or 3) I've bothered to check out the place, each time I was offered the worst table in the house, and denied by the hostesses or waitresses a different table, even when I asked. So I've walked out each time. If it happened once, I wouldn't write a negative review, but since it's happened over and over again, this place deserves to hear about it. What ever happened to putting your customers first? Not like there aren't a million other choices in the neighborhood with better food and zero 'tude. Also, the scene inside is a reason why I've only even bothered to check out the place a handful of times in many years living on the UES. This place belongs on a hat-to-the-back wearing college campus.
