Not so authentic Texas BBQ – Simply put: this was the worst barbecue I had ever eaten at a restaurant. The wings were huge (the only "plus") but you needed vice-like fingers to separate them so you can actually take a neat bite. In the process, you will likely need a bib to keep the food from splattering all over you. My wife ordered the hot dog and it looked like a burnt log. The main thing this place has going for it is that it's setup to accommodate large groups (upstairs) and the portions are pretty large. The quality and taste, however, are poor and it's nowhere near authentic. Another huge demerit had to be given because when the server brought the food out, we couldn't understand what he was saying and he put the wrong orders in front of a few people. When 2 people in my party noticed their orders were switched, the waitress told the kitchen manager about it. He came out promptly and then picked up the 2 plates of food and...wait for it...SWITCHED THEM, giving one guest a plate of food that was already nibbled on by the other. He didn't even ask if that would be ok (not that it would have been) & not asking made it inexcusable. The waitress was mortified (and you can only imagine how we felt) and was very sweet and patient. The manager, too, came out and apologized profusely. Still, we weren't comped anything nor was our bill discounted a red cent. As we walked out, we were all tempted to tell the scores of people waiting to get in to do themselves a favor and run away. Alas, we didn't. If you want good BBQ (by NY standards anyway) go over to Virgil's or Brother Jimmy's, as my experiences there have always been pleasant if not very, very good.
Are you Kiddin BBQ What BBQ – Why call yourself a BBQ when you do not have a smoker to do the actual work. Putting smoky BBQ sauce on an oven roasted rib is not real BBQ.
Editorial Review – BBQ wings, baby back ribs, steaks, and all things fried; a little piece of Texas in Washington Heights.
Horrible customer service – The ONLY good thing about this place is it's weekday lunch special: for less than $7, diners can buy a 1/4 rotisserie chicken, a side of rice OR a baked potato, and a chintzy glass of tea or soft drink. But don't expect much more. There's hardly anyone who acknowledges your presence if -- heaven forbid -- you should desire a refil after chomping down on some tough, dry ribs. The fried vegetable tempura isn't bad, but not worth the wait staff's attitude. This certainly isn't close to the Dallas BBQ incarnation that once existed near NYU.
