Food is amazing. Dinner time is always a busy time, no matter what day. I would definitely recommend getting a reservation if you're going on a weekend or for dinner. The staff are cool. I've never had a horrible server or experience. Great drinks and again... Amazing food!!

I've recently moved very close to here and, to be honest with you, I want to come here every day. They serve really good dinosaur :). The sweetheart deal is so freaking good. Partner up with a bro and stuff your stomachs with ribs and amazing sides. You won't regret it. I don't think there's a better deal than having 2 dudes heterosexually talk about things that matter in the world while eat ribs and throwing bones into tiny pales. *Pound* *Explosion* Must tries are fried green tomatoes and the baked beans. The baked beans totally remind of camping - in all the good ways. My favorite sauce is the wild tango. It's slightly spicy and is ready to party. It makes a party in my mouth. There's also no shame when eating in this place. Feel free to use all 10 fingers and draw a smily around your lips from bbq sauce. You'll be the joker of ribs. I've also worn some rather nice clothes and have them wreaking of delicious bbq. It's never a bad idea to have the smell of bbq stay on your jacket and make your entire closet smell like a roast pit. These are all, obviously, positive things about this place. Mmmm.. bbq clothes.

Well after waiting for an hour to be seated we were directed to the most drafty part of the restaurant. I proceeded to put my coat on and waited to be served. Once the food arrived I kept my coat on and ate my steak with mac and cheese which honestly I've made better at home. The bench style seating sucks and is old. Every time someone sat you bounced up and down.Tell you the truth I'll never go there again unless I was asked to go there specifically. I'd rather go to BBQs or a dozen other BBQ joints in NYC. I was not impressed by the establishment or the food. If you're a tourist and like BBQ go there if you're not a tourist and like BBQ go elsewhere.

Best Mac 'n Cheese I've had. Best brisket I have ever had. I always leave feeling like I'm gonna die. Which is awesome. It's impossibly crowded during dinner, but if you go for lunch it's pretty relaxed and easy to get a table.

Flashback group of 4 sitting at in a quaint diner like restaurant at table in Syracuse, NY. Around are bikers in leather and jeans all chopping down on peel & eat shrimp with a rack of ribs on the side. Fast forward present. Group of 4 sitting in a vast cavernous restaurant with industrial chic feel in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Around are Brooklyn hipster and gentrified urban dwellers with a taste for BBQ. Here it is all about the good ole meat. The ode to the cow, pig and bird. The crispy Green fried tomatoes was not oily the cheese added a nice saltiness. The dipping sauce had a slight heat. The brisket plate with sides of coleslaw and baked beans topped with pickled jalapenos. The meat was moist and tender. The coleslaw cool and tangy not overly mayonnaise. The baked beans was a bit thicker than I like but still flavorful. The ¾ rack pork rib was melt off the bone and full of flavors. The jarred sauces on the table complements the meat but not necessary. This is probably some of the best BBQ we've had and what makes it great is that it is the prices are reasonable for all to enjoy unlike some other expensive joints and don't have to sacrifice going to the bottom of the well BBQ chain.

The BEST BBQ in town!! They moved a block away but the food and the ambient still the same!! Cool place to enjoy some beer, choose from 25 on tap... Or just do like me and get the sampler with 4 different beers at time... Best of all, you get all the DELICIOUS food at very good price... Usually the bill here comes out to be ~$40 per person with all the beers and tips included...

*Makes dinosaur noises* *Sniffs the air* *Takes a huge chunk out of the table next to me with my teeth* This must be how the dinosaurs ate. *Pulls a splinter out from between my teeth* Ouch! They must have really had the life. Waited on hand and foot by a staff of human slaves. Catering to their every whim; serving up all the shrimpies on a platter. I bet they even served human from time to time; they need to eat meat at some point. *Salivates at that thought* The cooks must make a fortune because with that quality of eatery there is no way they cheap out. They treat their cooking like they treat their ladies: With love and care. I've been told that the old staff is the reason all the dinosaurs are extinct. They revolted, joined together, and slowly started poisoning the food. Rumor has it that the meat they serve now is the left over flesh from the dinos they used to work for; nobody knows for sure. To bad if it isn't true though, I've always wanted to try exotic meats.
