I had way too high hopes for Fette Sau. My sister had been raving about it for months. The decor is pretty sweet. It's rustic yet inviting. Saturday night we made a ridiculous line for some brisket, pulled pork, and pork belly. Of the three, the pulled pork was my favorite. The pork belly had just enough fat and real lean meat but it just didnt do it for me. The brisket was missing something. It didnt matter how much BBQ sauce i dumped on it - the flavors werent there. Speaking of BBQ sauces... this one let me down big time. It's homemade and therefore not like the packaged junk that we buy, but it was a miss for me. The broccoli salad and burnt end beans was another let down. The only thing i loved was the beer. Sorry! Give it a try for yourselves. 3 stars because it's a decent place. Like I said - my sister raves about this place. I was let down but to each their own.

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.

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.

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!

I absolutely love this place. The pork shoulder and belly, the beef ribs, the sausage and the beans are all absurdly awesome, as are the beer and whiskey selection.

Worth the trip to Brooklyn. Exceptional BBQ and bourbon selection. Have been back multiple times and recommended to many friends.

A nicely decorated restaurant full of conversation starters, from the butcher's knives that extend from the beer taps to the huge TV fireplace. Also a great place to discuss the hipster phenomenon :-) The bbq was good, but maybe not good enough to warrant standing in line for an hour or so to get it. The prices were ok, but as you order different types of meat per pound, you have to be careful not to order too much.
