I've been to my fair share of Stephen Starr restaurants in Philly and DC but I can't say I have had a memorable experience in one until now. Their meat selection is dry rubbed and smoked in-house. We ordered a rack of St. Louis ribs, a pound and half of beef brisket, and a pound of pulled pork shoulder. I prefer fattier cuts when it comes to my BBQ as I find them to be more flavorful. I also enjoy the charred edges. So if you have similar tastes, then you would love this place. Unfortunately, we got there a bit late and they were already out of the pork belly, but I will be going back. Great place for a chill, guys night out!

This place is appropriately named. Fette Sau means Fat Sow in German. You walk in and frequently have to wait in line, but once you get to the front, it is just a deli counter full of cooked meats. We had the brisket, which was fantastic and some pork, also fantastic. The pulled pork wasn't as good as I had hoped. The baked beans were also fantastic. They have a zillion beers and bourbons. All served on picnic benches/tables. I really liked this place. The brisket was possibly the best I have ever had.

While I used to frequent this spot, they have raised prices time and time again that it gets to a point where a non-service restaurant costs you 25 dollars a person. The meat quality has also decreased dramatically. Go to some of the newer bbq joints for tastier cheaper options

Great BBQ joint in Williamsburg. All meats smoked in-house and they make their own dry rub. We got pork belly and beef brisket along with some baked beans and pickles. Food is real good although a bit greasy. I know, I'm already throwing caloric caution to the wind when I'm eating BBQ anyways but the grease left on my plate after eating the pork and beef was a bit startling. Even so, this "Fat Pig" BBQ joint is still good for the gluttons like myself. Baked beans were also delish. People are friendly too. We asked for 3 lbs of pork and beef and they originally only gave 1.5 lbs. However, the cashier caught the mistake when the total price came up. Quick thinking on their part and good for us since we were taking it to go for a get together.

Visited Fette Sau 2x and by far one of the great BBQ places we have in the NY Tristate area. You have to eat the food while you're there, I realized BBQ is not really great reheated. The Short Ribs and the Brisket are fantastic especially when coming straight out the pits.

The hipster vibe and the prices set my Texan's brisket poser alarm off, but the fact they serve it on butcher paper calmed me down a bit. Still, this is only okay barbecue. The pricey brisket (sold by the pound) had a generous layer of fat and I had to use a knife to cut it... not okay. Pork ribs also too fatty. Best thing was the beans and a hot dog sitting on grilled kraut (LOVE grilled kraut--take a can, drain it thoroughly, mix around in a skillet with a bit of olive oil or bacon fat until it begins to brown and crisp a bit; after you've tried it you'll never put plain kraut on your hot dog again). Unexceptional selection of house beers.
