Daisy May's BBQ USA

If you want a sit down restaurant experience, this is NOT the place for you. You line up, order and they basically give your food to you in "to go" boxes. I think the "dining room" is a recent addition, and not intended for those who require restaurant like service. Think of this as a food court or fast food place. Except that the food is GREAT. YMMV depending on when you go. As the previous reviewer mentioned, most of the sides are behind the counter on steam trays. I tried the mashed potatoes (would have liked some good, thick, dark gravy, but it was good) and the creamy corn with cheddar (very cheesy and delicious). Also tried the Memphis dry rub pork ribs and the KC sweet and sticky pork ribs. AMAZINGLY good. I have to disagree with the last poster... this plays BLOWS AWAY Virgil's in terms of the flavor of the ribs, the texture, everything. I ended up ordering another half rack of the Memphis ribs to go and enjoyed them later on in the week. I can't wait to go back!

OMG went to Daisy May's for a celebration with my fiancee. Thinking it was like a Virgil's where you sit in a fun atmosophere with music. We walk in and the food is already prepared and laying there for most likely hours by the looks of it. You get your food in a box and then proceed to sit on wooden benches with no service. The coleslaw was not good as the rice and bean tasted stale. My financee is from the South and said the ribs had alot to be desired. Needless to say we were very disappointed.

What a find! Quarts of sweet tea with mint in mason jars you can take home, peach compote, creamed corn, mashed potatoes and gravy, and oh yeah, they have ribs too. Weird location but terrific ribs. They have big platters, but it would take a really big appetite to just finish the small platters at 15.00 with half a rack of ribs and two sides. We had the dry rub and the sweet and sticky. Both beautifully made, nearly fatless because of the long cooking, and well spiced. Unusuual location, but keep it where it is... if everybody finds out about this place, it'll get too crowded. Well worth the trip.

All the ribs are amazing. The jumbo beef rib (affectitonatly dubbed the brontosaurus rib) is fantastic, dry rub ribs are exceptional, and the chili is the best I have ever had. Sides, go with creamed spinach, rice, and sweet potatoes. Sweet tea is a must. Have the tea and Okalahoma rib, you are promised a heart attack.

Have always enjoyed the lunch cart on Park Ave, but the recent expansion makes eating at the restaurant much more palatable. The plate specials (ribs and two sides) are a pretty good value at $13-$17. Enough for two depending on your appetite (my wife and I shared no problem but we don't have huge appetites). Have liked everything I've tried both in the restaurant and at the carts - sweet n sticky ribs (nice smoke ring), pulled pork sandwich, texas chili, and the sweet tea (a little less value there). Like the new cafeteria-style dining room, especially the flatscreens.

This BBQ is as good as any you could find in Texas. Big portions, great sides and a fun atmosphere. Another great place noted by Rachel Ray. Try the ribs or share - there is plenty!!!

I get lunch from the cart by Bloomingdale's. I have only had the pulled pork which is excellent. It comes with a decent kaiser roll and some sort of wrap that is too stuck together to unwrap. Either way, all I want is the pork and it is very tender, lean, and delicious. I have eaten at every other barbeque place in NYC and Daisy May's is better than Blue Smoke, Dinosaur, Dallas, or Virgil's on their best day.
