Having grown up in North Carolina, I'm constantly searching for a good pulled pork sandwich in the city. I prefer the vinegar-based bbq typical of eastern NC, and this is the best I've found.

Absolutely one of the best brunches I have ever had! The hashbrowns are absolutely amazing, definitely all worth the wait. Tomatos are amazing too, you will see what I am referring to once you try one.

sorry i don't understand the bad reviews here? I've been there a ton of time but not lately only because i hate queuing more than i like great food! week days are easy though. if its so bad why is there always a 20 plus person queue at weekends outside?

tasted like the chef had poured an entire bottle of vinegar in it. service took forever and i was starving so i didnt send it back, though thinking back, i really should have. There are so many good reviews for this place, the only thing i can think of is this batch was a BIG mistake, somehow.

After reading so many negative reviews here, I was leery to take my out of town guest there this morning. We arrived at 10:30am and there as a large crowd already waiting around outside. We thought we'd have to wait about an hour based on what we heard the hostess telling other people, but we only had to wait 20 minutes till we were seated. The service was outstanding, the food was all I hoped it would be, and we both left extremely happy and satisfied.

This past Sunday, while Ally was away in farm country of Pennsylvania, we paid a revisit with a "Egg fan," her brother Lenny, fresh in from school. ADVICE: if you plan on going on the weekend, go early or late afternoon/evening. Wait on arriving at 1:40pm - we sat down at 3pm! Even the staff says don't come 12-3. With that said, the food and service was as great as before. Pancakes - enough for 2 hungry diners. Eggs Rothko perfect. Great fresh orange juice, super cheese grits, superb bacon, biscuits the best!. Prices - not cheap but very fair. With the exception of the crowds, a knockout. Amities Gourmandes, ally's dad

Another brunch exploration, another stab at city-born biscuits n' gravy. Egg has been so hypedand it snagged my attentionand I've been wanting to try their brunch for ages. A weekend visit will likely set your morning back an hour or so. When I want brunch I'll wait 15 minutes, give or take, and that's about it. Egg satisfies, and on a Thursday at noon you are sat immediately. (Chalk one up for recent unemployment!) My pal, Bob The Photographer, and I both enjoyed the strong single-serving french presses with their full bodies and strong persona. (I'm getting horny.) We also both ordered the biscuits and gravy. The interior sure makes you focus on your food: white washed walls of a garage, no artwork, a hanging industrial butane heater. Get yer eyes back on the plate, meester. Overall, it was quite good. Not fabulous, spectacular, or anything, but quality and understated, two things I like very much in a staple meal. The biscuits were tasty, the gravy was abundantavoiding the pork-overload so many succumb toand the the eggs were opulent and evidently farm-fresh, showing off their harvest orange color and caramel consistency. I'll definitely be returning. I like straight-forward, grounded, and tasty breakfast meals, and the drive to Wburg from Carroll Gardens is worth the reward. I'll be investigating their dinner menu on my return, too.
