Cafeteria style eating does not mean it should be cafeteria quality food. We spent $100 on 4 people and for that kind of money, you should get fresh, made-to-order bbq. The food must have been sitting there all night because when we ordered rice and beans, the employee working there advised us not to order it. His exact words were "I wouldn't order that if I were you". Nice of him to tip us off but there's definitely something wrong when the employees won't even eat the food. We ordered almost all the sides and a few selections of the meat. Everything was subpar. It was about 20 minutes after closing time and instead of asking us to finish up, they turned off the lights on us. WHO DOES THAT? If you're going to take our money and let us order, then you should let us finish our meal. There are tons of bbq places in the city that have better food and service for more reasonable prices.

The $33.50 is a plate "special." Yes the rib is 20oz and the sides are only enough for one person. This entree (as well as others) are completely mispriced. The quality is above average. Let me know when you lower the prices to reasonable NYC levels. Your Truly, Native NYer

$33.50 for one beef rib and two sides, please. I've had it and is not worth the PREMIUM PRICE. For more bang for your buck, you can enjoy soooo much more at a Brazilian Churrascaria restaurant for a little more cost, which is all you can eat that includes multiple cuts of awesome rotiserie BBQ meat (beef,pork,chicken and lamb). Pricing really needs to be reduced.

The ribs are very fatty and greasy. I ate two ribs and couldn't eat anymore because I was feeling sick to my stomach from all the visible fat on the ribs that I just ate that had not cooked off. The restaurant has no atmosphere. You order at the counter, pick up your food, and seat yourself. There are no waiters. You are eating on paper plates and plastic utensils. A meal for two with two drinks costs $60, which seems steep when you are eating on a paper plate. I do not recommend this place. There is better bbq out there.

The good news is that this place is never very crowded anymore because it is so expensive (esp. for 11th ave!). The bad news is you probably can't afford it either.

I may not be from a BBQ cookin part of the United States but I love it and have enjoyed it in Louisville and Dallas so I do have something to back up my claims. I recently ordered from Daisy May's for lunch (they deliver anywhere in Manhattan) and found it to be pretty tastey. The Carolina pulled pork sandwich was tangy and sweet with lots of sauce and was not dry at all, but if you're not a fan of Carolina bbq then that is not the dish for you. Some friends recommend eating it with the corn bread to cut the tanginess but I didn't need it. The mac and cheese was very creamy and cheesy. I also ordered the cajun dirty rice as a side and that was very spicey and flavorful. While it was a little pricey I think it was worth it. This is New York City, everything is overpriced and it's not going to be the same as your home cooked bbq from the south. You can't dig a barbeque pit in Central Park.

I love the ribs and the sweet potato sides. The dirty rice is delish also. I even kinda like their seating in the back. My wife and I, who live a few blocks away, would eat there 2-3x a month if they lowered their prices to a more reasonable level; now we refuse to go and pay these outsized prices. Our loss....
