Here, piggy, piggy.

Ah, found ya. Under the picnic table with the other hipsters and up to your elbows in brisket. Shouldn’t expect anything less at Fette Sau (it does mean “fat pig” in German).

No wonder those Spuyten Duyvil folks opened their BBQ joint in a garage: The place’d be a real pigsty if not for this communal paper towel roll.

Time to head back to the counter for more smoked meats. (Dry-rub ribs, pork sausage, pork butt, pork belly bacon, and baked beans are weighed and served in wax paper on a tray.) The sweet, smoky scent is making this carnivore ravenous.

Want a mason jar of Sixpoint Diesel Stout? A gallon jug of beer? Something from the whiskey, bourbon, and rye bar?

Let’s sit outside with some chips and a glass of Old Williamsburg. Afterward, we’ll hang by the fire roaring on the flat-screen with a slice of peanut butter chocolate pie.

Oh, what, now you’re full? Well, that’s fine.

You can bring home the bacon.


Fette Sau, 354 Metropolitan Avenue, between Roebling and Havemeyer Streets, Williamsburg (718-963-3404).

Ok, maybe not a rib joint, but I have never had better ribs then my wife's Dominican Costillas. The meat literally falls off the bone and on top of some Morro (Specially seasoned rice) and Guandules (pigeon peas) it is to die for.

If we have a get together this summer maybe you'll get to try 'em.

Hill Country, 26th St bet Bway & 6th - opened a month ago. Three of us shared beef ribs (excellent) pork ribs (v.good) and brisket (good). Cuke salad & green bean casserole were good too, but those don't really count.

The decor is a kinda faux-Texas hokey but the place is big enough that it doesn't really matter. The "system" is a little out of the ordinary for NYC - stand on line, self-serve (you decide if you want 2 ribs or 10, etc), seat yourself.

I've been twice already. The moist brisket is otherworldly.

It truly is the Katz's of barbecue.

Does that make it the restaurant at the end of the universe?

I made the mistake of getting the lean brisket. Tasty, but dry (but the leftovers were freekin awesome on a bagel w/ bbq sauce for lunch the next day).

went to RUB again last night.

The service is excellent.
The ribs are good but far from greatness.
spicy sauce was good while their original recipe might as well been bulls eye
I was surprised that a restaurant could get sweet tea so wrong but their sides are delicious.
try the cole slaw - vinegar style and the bbq beans
reasonable price

overall C+

We finally got to Hill Country on Friday night. The "moist (fatty) brisket" is awesome, as is the jalapeno and cheese hot link sausage they "import" from Texas. I also loved the sides, esp. the Shoepeg White Corn Pudding.

Turns out that we know the General Manager too (he used to work at my wife's restaurant), so if people want to do this as a Wed Nite Ride I can set it up.

P.S. A detailed review from Beef Aficionado blog:

I was almost gonna mention Southern Hospitality, which recently opened at 76th & 2nd, but the hype of a Justin Timberlake-owned restaurant is just a little too much. The food was ok but really now, bouncers outside a bbq joint? You must be kidding.

Stopped at the Big W on the way home from Ct. today. Ordered the slow chicken. Terrific. Better than the ribs.


Holy cow, you're right! BBQ chicken is usually dry and uninteresting, redhaired stepchild to brisket and pulled pork, but this is just amazing. How tender is it? Even the white meat doesn't need sauce, that's how tender it is.

Good Morning everyone who reads this. Firstly I am not a scooter owner, know nothing about scooters apart from they look cute and have never even been on a scooter, although I'm music lover and love The Who, The Jam etc... and their associated with scooters right? :)

Google directed me to your discussion forum from my search for ribs in NYC... I'm in England and visiting NYC this week and as well as longing for a Long Island Ice Tea, I am craving to taste authentic bbq ribs and anyone who has visited the UK knows we don't really ribs here. I made the mistake a few years ago whilst visiting NYC to visit Dallas on Times Square and didn't enjoy the experience at all, so your thread has made up my mind, I have taken on board your discussion of where to go and where to certainly avoid, since obviously you guys are local and know what your talking about unlike a visitor who was taken in by the bright lights and thought "it's Times Square, gotta be good right?"

Anyway just wanted to say thanks folks, I'm looking forward to ribs again now, and sorry for the intrusion, but this thread has helped greatly. Helen.

Been there twice. Not great but not bad, not bad at all. For context, keep in mind that it's a truck on a street corner.



Helen -
Hill Country, 26th St between Broadway & 6th
Daisy May's, 11th Ave & 46th St
Blue Smoke, 27th St between Park & Lex. Cheap people complain it's too expensive. It is. I keep going back anyway.
