Barbecue is one of my favorite kinds of food, and coming from Chicago, I am almost always disappointed by what passes for barbecue in NYC restaurants. I would usually rather cook out myself after eating their food. Not so at Daisy May's. This has become my favorite bbq place in the city. Their Kansas City ribs are fantastic: smoky, sweet, nice and juicy! And a huge serving for less than $10! Now if they could only bring the price of the sides down a little ... (The Memphis ribs are a little too dry for my taste though.)

Okay so i have become a BBQ freak over the past 4 years or so and i have studied it bought a smoker and well i love it. As far as the food it's untouchable in NYC, with Dinosaur BBQ right there as well. Unfortunately the only BBQ outside of NY i've had is at NY festivals but i got a good idea of what great BBQ is, can't wait to travel and try all the rest. I'll start with its only flaw which i believe is in the works of being fixed, there is no seating its a to go only establishment, but for me this is no prob. They got picnic tables as well outside. To the food: well for your dollar you can't go wrong here everything is priced real nice expect to spend 10-15 . As for what i've eaten. Sandwiches: Brisket with pickles: very good, standard but a nice sandwich. Pulled Chicken w/ smoke jalapeno: So good slathered with a great sauce. nice and smokey, mmmmmmm one of my favs. New Mex Chop Rib: Very good and complex chile flavor, different than the norm, tasty. Entrees: Dry Ribs: One of the absolute best ribs ever, great rub great texture, perfectally cooked, nice and smokey. Wet Ribs: Also great but the dry is my choice. Jumbo Beef: Personally i don't like beef ribs but this is excellently cooked, nice flavor, so friggen tender. gotta like shortribs to like this, its gigantic also u get one. Beer Can Chicken: Possibly the best bbq'd bird in NY and standout anywhere. so just perfect, a must try, same meat on the sandwich. Turkey Leg: its a special but its been around very good and great smoke flavor, real tender. Texas Chili: Perfect. Sides: Creamed Spinach: Mixed Reviews some really love it, its on teh bitter end of the spinach so.... Well i like mine creamier but my friend swears by this stuff. Cheddar Corn: YUMMY. Sweet Tator Mash: very good creamy and perfectly spiced. Corn Bread: i'm a baker myself and this is excellent stuff. Sweet Tea: really good, best of what i've had in NYC no doubt, served in a big mason jar. its a must with BBQ. I can go on but well Daisy Mays is worth the visit and then u'll be back. They deliver and have trucks round the city check their website.

They have a cart on Wall Street, just a block or so east of Broadway. A friend and I shared the BBQ brisket and Carolina pulled pork sandwiches. The give you a roll, a little tub of meat (more than you can possibly load onto the roll,) pickles, slaw, onions. Everthing was perfect. I cannot tell you how fabulous it was -- I do believe I went into ecstasy. I'd much rather spend $8 on one of their sandwiches than on limp string beans from the salad bar. I wish they would advertise the location of their carts!

Lunch july 3. Great food and good value. Chef is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. Met him personally at the fox news broadcast on sunday morning and he is the best.

I have not been to the main restaurant but the carts that sell this stuff offer an oasis in the "street meat" desset! I think it is the best BBQ in NYC. The pulled pork is succulent and smokey, the chicken is not all white meat but the flavor is amazing! Don't dismiss this just because it is sold out of a cart.

Daisy May's is outstanding on all fronts (with the exception of not having an eat-in area). Great food, great service and definitely a great value. We've tried several menu items and all are delicious. We'd love it even better if it were open on Saturdays!

Jonathan (age 11) was visiting me in the city today, and we wanted to try barbecue. We have only tried Virgil's before, and were a little disappointed with it. He and I have fairly high standards for barbecue - I use a smoker in my backyard during the summer, so, even though I am English, understand what barbecue is. WE LOVED DAISY MAY'S! Yes, it is a small storefont with no real tables to sit at - so, to eat in, you have to stand and use the window ledge. But, the giant beef rib, which we shared, even though we are both big eaters, was fabulous; meaty, tender, just spicy enough, and it came with two sides. We chose cajun rice and sweet potatoes - both were equally delicious. The young lady who served us was friendly, helpful, and altogether delightful. I will definitely return to try other dishes, even though it is quite a long walk from my new office.
