Had half pound of pork and beef brisket with my wife both were excellent. I loved the baked beans best they had a really good kick. Place was typical hop Brooklyn but servers were pleasant when we asked how much we should order (it's by weight). I definitely recommend for tags price, good local beer selection as well.

Triedd it based on someones mention of a "hip" bbq spot in BKLYN. Rolled up on Metropolitan Ave saw a garage with christmas lights and a line of hipsters out the door, "This must be it" I tell myself. Sure enough... I made it this far so I figured I might as well give it a shot. After about an hour wait and a couple of good beers later it was my turn to order. BTW the food is served by weight so keep this in mind when ordering and have your order figured out in advance to save yourself the "tude". I order up a storm and fill my tray with a pound of each meat including the raved-about-brisket. My honest assestment: Flavor/technique 6/10 seasoning and smoke flavor(for the most part)not bad however most of the meats were dry and leathery the short rib needed a band saw to cut through and the brisket was stringy and chewy. The pulled pork was super dry and greasy. The sausage on the other hand was excellent and highly recommended. Beans didnt touch my mouth after I smelt an unpleasant pungent aroma and the broccoli was over steamed. The atmosphere IMHO sells the place not the BBQ. Ive gone back several other times hoping that I had gone on a previous miss experience however have been wronged each time I have gone back. If you go here go because it is a chill spot to have a good beer and sausage. The BBQ needs serious help and whoever rates this place highly needs to venture out of BRKLYN and try other BBQ places that know how to smoke meats and expedite a line.

Saw on food neetwork and have been dying to try. Live in Philly but made a trip to NY and made sure to make this a stop. Meat was great and tender, Potato salad I'll pass. Beans chopped up like ground meat. Service not worth the return. Clearly we had never been there b4 bc we had questions as to which meats were on display and the young lady had short temper.

Yes, this is my favorite bbq in town. The best, the best. But! We need to petition them to bring back the cole slaw! It's a beautiful, fruity, flavory work of art... but last time i was in there, they told me it was seasonal. But i want it year-round. As for the meat though, mmmm. Go here for the legendary stuff you hear about on TV and can't find in NY. The brisket is always great, and more people need to order the pork belly. It's wonderful. So go here and enjoy (and tell 'em to bring back the cole slaw!)

Great BBQ! I highly recommend this place any time it's not incredibly busy.

Delicious bbq, very reasonable prices, great bar, cool atmosphere for you and your friends. Always busy, always good. Casual-family style tables, meat served to you on metal trays that you carry to whatever seat you can find, but awesome atmosphere.

The space is great, the food is really good and the bourbon and beer selection phenomenal, but we had some issues. First, the line was extremely long. We expected that but once we reached the front, we realized what the problem was. They only have one scale to weigh out customer orders. If they just added one more station, wait time could be cut in half. I guess that may create a seating issue though. Still, it seemed very inefficient. Second, the bartender, although really knowledgable and outwardly customer-service oriented enough, was so negatively passive aggressive towards the patrons, I was amazed. He stated outright to one that next time, they should leave a tip which would be good for everyone, told someone else he didn't have time to recommend a cocktail, refused to pour beer from a very large jug into a glass for another because "if he did it for one customer, he'd have to do it for everyone." He also refused to continue serving another customer, who was foreign, because he hadn't left a tip. I understand that tipping is the right thing to do and that it must be frustrating for bartenders when people don't tip, but honestly, maybe if he had been a little nicer, it wouldn'thave been an issue.
