Harley's Smokeshack & BBQ
Posted by Barbara on 04/21/2014
Went for brunch on Sunday and to watch the Rangers game. The food was delicious, and a great value. I had the salmon hash, which was smoked salmon on hash browns. The best hash browns I have ever had. The service was wonderful - the manager and wait staff were friendly and on top of everything. They had a party of ten come in after we had finished our food; instead of asking us to leave or hurry, the manager asked us to move and bought us drinks. The chef came out and talk to us, and ask our opinion. Highly recommended.

Ok, first I want to say that I waited so long for this joint to open and was so eager to get my hands on some of its grub... I have been several times since and have sampled almost everything on the menu. If you are a BBQ fan, this ain't the place for you. The two main ingredients on the menu are salt and grease! I mean, with all that cash, and that kick ass smoker, this is what you churn out?! No selection other than St. Louis?! Lame! Do yourself a favor. If you are craving real BBQ, go someplace else. Blue Smokes a haul from here, but the price is the same, and there is no comparison in the quality! I am so dissatisfied man... We are so desperate for something other than Latin food up here!

I had been dying to go to eat here so Saturday so I did. The food was pure very poor! The only thing that could save this place is to fire the whole kitchen staff. The staff is very nice and really tried to make me happy but the only thing that made me happy was leaving

The service was great. The host and waiters/waitresses were on point. The food didn't take long to get to the table. The food was okay but Harleys can step their game up. I had a BBQ pulled pork and it was a little dry. The bread didn't really go with it (to thick and cold). The portion was satisfactory. The Texas Lollipop was average and I felt a couple of dollars overpriced. Next time I go back, I'll know how to order my sandwich. Bread toasted and a side of extra bbq sauce. Add sweet tea to the drink portion of the menu. I lived in Georgia for 2 years and have tasted some dynamite bbq. I take bbq seriously. Harleys is better than others but you gotta step up your bbq game. Do that and you'll have it going on. Especially with the great staff you have employed with you. It is hard to find a good bbq place nowadays.

Wow. Had the best dining experience ever. Found this BBQ Joint over the weekend. What a little gem, decor and ambience all were spot on. The food is amazing. The wings are meaty and fall off the bone, Meatloaf is a home run, way too much food for one person. Root veggies and Mac n cheese were great also. Drinks were nice and strong, beer in chilled mugs. I'm telling everyone I know about this place. And to beat it all, it's not too expensive. Well done Harley's.

I pride myself on being a BBQ expert. My parents are from the south an I grew up on shrimp , grits, ribs and catfish. Visited this place on a reccomendation of a good friend . WOW what a place. From the outside to the inside , what a great looking restaurant. I'm sure no experience spared on the decor. But what I was really here for was the food. We were greeted by nearly all the staff , which is a nice touch. We sat under the big wagon wheel in the main dining room. I had a draft beer which was iced and chilled in a mug. We ordered app sampler with ribs wings and Texas lollipops. Holy smokes what a great combo, everything was cooked and smoked to perfection. I had the spare ribs which were awesome , slow smoked and the meat was perfectly marbleized which fell off the bone. Sides were great also mac n cheese is like mom used to make simple and creamy and the bacon potato salad was a nice touch also. The service and the atmosphere were second to none . When we got our bill , I was surprised that it was quite reasonable for all the food we had ( even left with doggie bags) compared to some of the other BBQ restaurants in NYC. All in all a great dining experience and we will be back regularly. Thanks Harley's.
