I live in the neighborhood so I am not just some tourist suffering from sticker shock. I have eaten at about 10 other BBQ restaurants in NYC. The food is top notch but the prices are clearly unreasonable. If the prices for entrees would drop 3+ dollars, I would probably go here at least once a week. For now I am on the sidelines...

Food is very expensive. I had Shrimp barbeque and it was just ok. The bread pudding was also not of very high quality. Overall food quality was fair. But the price was exorbitant. Moreover the boy who was serving was not very courteous. There was a clear sense of nonchalance in his behavior because of the small quantity of our order. It was my 1st visit and will definitely be my last one.

I agree with last commentor. This place used to be great when the plate special would cost you $10 but now the prices soared to some of the more upscale BBQ joints. I know they added a couple tables and a bathroom but that no way justifies the price inflation. I also agree that the food quality has gone down but it is still good. But for the horrendous location, there should be more of an incentive to go there. It used to be because of the good prices, now there's little left.

Basically, this place has sold out in a big way. Mass produced BBQ that is no where near as good as it use to be. On top of it, prices have almost DOUBLED from 4 yrs ago. Its still good. Its still better then most in the city. With that said,I no longer consider it the best BBQ in this city and its almost a rip off at $27 for a rack of ribs. Did rents sky rocket on 11th ave? Somehow I doubt it...

I did not actually eat at Daisy May's. I walked out when I was told the restaurant policy is to not provide tap water with meals. Who needs this?

OK, my review only applies to the pulled pork plate I ordered, which does not appear to be this places fortay. I assume when I get pulled pork I am getting it with a vinegar based sauce. What I was served resembled a stew of pulled pork with unrecognizable yellow slop sauce. It didn't look like pulled pork, it didn't taste like it, and whatever it was, it was unappetizing. I prefer vinegar based carolinas style BBQ. I don't enjoy Texas style brisket or their ketchup based sauces which is what NYC BBQ seems to be obsessed with. The creamed spinach was ok, the beans were too sweet for my taste. No collard greens or mac n cheese. I keep going to BBQ places in NYC that claim to be authentic, but they are so far from it that I end up sounding like a whiny prima donna. I lived in georgia until a year ago and every single hole in the wall in the state does it better than anything in NYC. It's not that hard, please someone come through.

I have been going here for years. Now even though the place looks unpleasant (i usually order), their ribs, sandwiches, and just about everything else is as good as it can possible get.
