  • Hailey CGreat ribs, brisket and wings at a very reasonable price

    55555 by Hailey C

  • EvaThe Brisket, mac & cheese, shrimps, fried tomatoes and my favorite devil eggs are delicious.

    55555 by Eva

  • Sara T.Everything is great here. Nachos with brisket are AMAZING

    55555 by Sara T.

  • Cecilia AFood doesn't taste good. Mac & cheese is disgusting. Soul food with nasty mac & cheese you may as well close. Amy Ruth's, Southern Comfort, Harlem BBQ. Here I come.

    33333 by Cecilia A

  • Erik C.New York has good BBQ. We might not have the open pit. But the recreation is divine. Combined with that New York service and drinks. This place is gigantic , fun and fairly priced. Off the west side!

    55555 by Erik C.

  • John GCollard greens, ribs. Nice beer selection.

    55555 by John G

  • Mahammatt JHad the Memphis chop with the baked beans, sweet potatoes, creole potatoes and Mac and cheese. Wasn't a big fan of the beans, the potatoes. The sandwich was very good as was the Mac and cheese

    55555 by Mahammatt J

  • Yelimar RodriguezThe Jerk Salmon, Mac n' Cheese, and were delish. The peanut butter pie was to die for.

    55555 by Yelimar Rodriguez

  • Ray NGood ribs. Not the best I have ever tried, but fairly good.

    55555 by Ray N

  • PaddyReally good BBQ and soul food place on the very west side of the city. We got a 3 meat combo plate. Brisket was just like you'd find in Texas, sausage was moist and tasty and the ribs were great too.

    55555 by Paddy

  • Cathy A.to die for ribs!

    55555 by Cathy A.

  • Carmen Gloria NThe food is a little heavy, sauce is the best and the potatoes.Nice ambient, weekends is better make a reservation. Sometimes live music

    55555 by Carmen Gloria N

  • Nayanda M.Good food but the greens are not my cup of tea.

    33333 by Nayanda M.

  • Staff PicksFried green tomatoes are this week's trending taste and this joint in Harlem is worth the trip! Considered one of the best BBQ joints in the city, this place is a meat (and tomato) lover's paradise.

    55555 by Staff Picks

  • Teresa FRibs are amazing! I especially recommend the deal for two!

    55555 by Teresa F

  • DaawniiWings and brisket are good too, but it's all about ribs in this place! Totally worth the trip to all the way up on the west side in Manhattan.

    55555 by Daawnii

  • Liz B.The chicken churassco is delicious. The donkey punch will enhance your atmosphere

    55555 by Liz B.

  • Michael AI highly recommend the combo with ribs, they are to die for!

    55555 by Michael A

  • Jennifer C.One word. Brisket.

    55555 by Jennifer C.

  • Jesse B.Nothing - NOTHING - tops the wings (and the bleu cheese) and the deviled eggs, but go crazy anyway! Pro tip: If you do the big meal deals (which you should) swap out the half chicken for WINGS.

    55555 by Jesse B.

  • Parker C.Wango tango wings to die for!

    55555 by Parker C.

  • Monique SmithThe donkey punch packs quite the kick. You can't really go wrong with the desserts. The mac and cheese is really great

    55555 by Monique Smith

  • Myer NSome good BBQ ribs. Don't get too adventurous on the menu because it's not all good, particularly the sides.

    55555 by Myer N

  • Spotted by Locals - city guides by localsTheir homemade BBQ sauces are delicious and mac & cheese is perfection!

    55555 by Spotted by Locals - city guides by locals

  • Nicolette RomeroRoll me out of this place! The brisket nachos, ribs, mac and cheese and cornbread make it hard to put down the fork! 🐷🍴

    55555 by Nicolette Romero

  • Hunter ThomasGreat BBQ food, but not worth a long wait and poor service. Be sure to make a reservation or consider take out. Good "couples" option for sharing sides and ribs.

    33333 by Hunter Thomas

  • Sonia Marcus-EvansBack here again. I was just here Saturday though.R.IP., waistline.

    33333 by Sonia Marcus-Evans

  • Irma Z.Delicious and very good service.

    55555 by Irma Z.

  • Kelsey LI had the Cuban with Mac and cheese and salted potatoes. It was one of the most delicious meals I have had in a while. The two sides were amazing!! Definitely recommend this place

    55555 by Kelsey L

  • Tohm S.Best chicken wings. Like the pulled pork more than the brisket. Mac n cheese is my favorite side.

    55555 by Tohm S.

  • Robyn GrierFamily barbecue player is a great deal. Good beer list.

    55555 by Robyn Grier

  • Nina OttavianoSo much delicious food. One full rack with 4 sides between the 2 of us and we couldn't even finish.

    33333 by Nina Ottaviano

  • Chris EvansPretty solid bbq. Ribs are a great dish to share. Just make sure you have a reservation because waits can be ridiculous - up to 3 hours on a weekend.

    55555 by Chris Evans

  • Amanda KellyAlways a great place when you're in the mood for BBQ! Check out the ambiance with the virtual tour!

    55555 by Amanda Kelly

  • David S.Best chain bbq in NYC. Peanut butter pie. Do it.

    55555 by David S.

  • Mike H.Brisket. Just. Yes, get it. The plate is $18 but you get SO much food. Great value.

    55555 by Mike H.

  • Tara ChiarulliGreen tomatoes, wings, deviled eggs, omg the ribs! And the cornbread

    55555 by Tara Chiarulli

  • SaraDino BBQ was the best for a while but Mighty Quinn's is better - hands down no question. Your money is better spent at MQ's. The service here is bad and the food isn't good enough to make up for it.

    33333 by Sara

  • Nicholas V.Donkey punch!! try itAlso their Mac and CHEESE?! HOOOE LEEE SHHH BEEEP!!!!

    55555 by Nicholas V.

  • Chris W.Ribs and so many options! Go with sampler. And make reservations days in advance!

    33333 by Chris W.

  • Jessica B.Huge plate of BBQ, brisket and ribs plus 2 sides and cornbread. Best BBQ I've had in NYC!

    55555 by Jessica B.

  • Chad H.Ribs and wings are great, as you'd expect. If you want an alternative, go for the catfish

    55555 by Chad H.

  • Corey N.Food was great! Always busy! Deviled eggs on the menu! They could use a little spicing up, but still tasty. The rib slabs at huge and the service was good for a late Sunday brunch.

    55555 by Corey N.

  • Chris P.Ribs, wings, fried green tomatoes all great. My favorite bbq in NYC. Try the hot Wango tango sauce.

    55555 by Chris P.

  • Saul MThe ribs are amazing, as are the beans. Brisket was average though.

    55555 by Saul M

  • Adam ClewleyFood is great, bar is great, but unfortunately the karaoke blasting over everything else made the night less enjoyable.

    55555 by Adam Clewley

  • Megan B.You can't go wrong with the Tres Niños (pulled pork, ribs, AND brisket) with a double side of Syracuse style salt potatoes, but they'll have to roll you out the door.

    55555 by Megan B.

  • Graham D.Don't miss the habernero BBQ sauce. Really enjoyed the Memphis pulled pork sandwich. High quality pulled pork. Fries were better than the Mac and cheese ad a side.

    55555 by Graham D.

  • Abigail A.Good mac n cheese. Crowds galore.

    55555 by Abigail A.

  • Martin C.The swag for 2

    33333 by Martin C.

  • Chet M.If the wait is long the standing tables at the bar are first come first serve.

    33333 by Chet M.

  • GothamistDo not, under any circumstances, skip out on the jumbo chicken wings, which range in spice from mild to hellishly hot; be sure to pair your meal with a side of homemade mac and cheese and baked beans.

    55555 by Gothamist

  • Matthew K.Don't miss the salt potatoes. Pro tip: cut them in half and let them soak for a few. Enjoy!

    55555 by Matthew K.

  • Christen R. - DivasandDorks.comIf you arrive early (before your entire party) be prepared to wait & not be seated until they arrive. Dumbest rule ever 😒

    33333 by Christen R. - DivasandDorks.com

  • Spencer P.Go early on the weekends to avoid the wait. But it's also worth the wait

    55555 by Spencer P.

  • Stephan AThe Succotash, Potato Salad, & Deviled Eggs are spicy! Try em!

    55555 by Stephan A

  • Mark F.The ribs aren't worth the long wait anymore. Considering its location... You can easily just go to Brother Jimmy's BBQ and wander the village after.

    33333 by Mark F.


    55555 by Rael C.

  • Amy M.Deviled eggs and fried green tomatoes are amazing!!!

    55555 by Amy M.

  • Liakos G.Delicious food and very good service. Best BBQ place in NY - value for money

    55555 by Liakos G.

  • RobynIt's not that good. I feel like I know good BBQ, coming from the meaty Midwest. The ribs were kinda tough :-/ the bartender was great though! Overall it wasn't bad, just not great.

    33333 by Robyn

  • AhmedThe best chicken wings I ever had and you MUST have the salty potato on the side. Great mac&cheese too.

    55555 by Ahmed

  • J B.Tasty ribs. Brisket good-could be hotter. Sides are very small. Salt potatoes, fried rice, and cole slaw are solid. Mac & cheese is overhyped. Knowledgeable servers, FAST service and CHEAP prices

    55555 by J B.

  • ZenFoodster EatsStars here that outshine the rest of the menu items are the Fried Green Tomatoes app, BBQ wings or any BBQ or BBQ jerk chicken dish, collard greens & BBQ fried rice sides! ;9

    55555 by ZenFoodster Eats

  • Paco V.The best ribs i've ever had!! :D

    55555 by Paco V.

  • Sam B.Wango tango wings are the business, order 13 and get half garlic chipotle. Little spicier but just as delicious.

    55555 by Sam B.

  • DailyCandyIt’s out-of-the-way location doesn’t deter crowds who chow down on short ribs, pulled pork, and sides of Syracuse salt potatoes — a staple that harks from the original brick-and-mortar upstate.

    55555 by DailyCandy

  • Mounir K.The ribs are sweet, juicy and perfectly tender. 9 should be enough for fill any tummy to the brim.

    55555 by Mounir K.

  • Jessica W.One of the best bbqs in the city. Best sides are Mac n cheese and salt potatoes.

    55555 by Jessica W.

  • Verna D.Brisket and pulled pork...amazing

    55555 by Verna D.

  • Mark F.Don't come hungry: Between the wait for a table and the wait for your food, its an hour wait. If you're not drinking it feels even longer. Oh the food is good, you just need people who talk with you.

    33333 by Mark F.

  • Semira1.5 hour wait.

    22222 by Semira

    55555 by Tara G.

  • amNewYorkA rustic, appealing spot with whitewashed walls & West African décor, the funky-yet-traditional approach is best seen in dishes like salade Nicoise, escargot and coq au vin. High energy, great music.
