What was once a reliably decent BBQ joint that was good value for money and appealing to locals, has turned into an overpriced, sub-par tourist trap for those with decrepit palates. I stopped there for lunch recently and spent a whopping $21 (up from $17) on the jumbo beef rib with beans and mash as sides. The beef was tough and chewy and lacking in flavour. The sides tasted like they had been left overs from several days earlier. In the past we'd make a pilgrimage from Murray Hill as a treat, but feel less inclined to now that the standards have lowered.

Certainly worth the trip over. The BBQ was great. It was a little hard to find a seat, but that is usually a sign of a good place. Definitely would go back here.

Great food all around, but a little pricey for BBQ. The service is excellent

This was one of the first places to appear during New York City's BBQ Renaissance and was a true "find" during the first few years of its existence. My friends and I would travel across from Midtown just to get the walk-in specials--the food was that good and the walk-in special pricing made it great value! However, after the walk-in specials pricing was raised last year, I just can't bring myself to do that walk anymore.

This BBQ joint on 11th avenue is equipped with a smoker and a genuine southern BBQ shack feel to it. HOWEVER, the prices are insane. A sandwich is nearly $10 without a side and drink. The prices are sky high and it's more of a tourist trap than a good old New York type of place. What is New York turning into? Disneyland?

Only have had delivery. Give yourself alot of time as it takes awhile. Call early and schedule your delivery. Beef rib rocks! Beer can chicken is a bit dry. Beans are good and creamy corn is good. Sticky rib are good.

Been here many times and tried just about everything on the menu.This used to be outstanding, but I see a slow decline taking place. Having said that the food is still very good and good vaue for money. The beef jumbo rib should be renamed beef dino rib. It's juicy, tender and loaded with flavor. The Tennese chicken is great. Smokey but not overpowering. The sides are varied and are a pot luck experience. Best ones are the beans, mash and corn. This is a no frills dining experience, perfect if your craving for BBQ and need to satiate your carnivorous tendencies. Once done nip across the street for a pint to end a perfect lunch hour!
