BEST BBQ IN NYC!!! – What I had:
Kansas City Sweet & Sticky Pork Ribs
Rustic Creamy Corn with NY State Cheddar
Mashed Potatoes with Red Eye Gravy
Cute cowgirls who were super friendly
I will definitely go back to Daisy May's. The food was to die for and the service gets 5 stars. *****
#1 BBQ in NYC – Seriously the best BBQ I have EVER had! I order a "Whole Pork Butt" for my family and I which came with cole slaw, Texas Toast, collard greens and baked beans with burnt ends. My southern family was well impressed and proud to know that I'm eating well in this city that is full of faux BBQ joints. I heart Daisy May's BBQ U.S.A.
NOT NYC's best BBQ place. Buying the hype will cost you$$$$ – $33.50 for one beef rib and two sides, PLEASE. I had it and the only thing that stands out is that theres a little more meat on the one rib than your average beef rib dinner. Go online and check their menu OVER prices: $4.50 for a mason jar of sweet tea (keep the jar and give me bottomless refills), $4.00 for a red velvet CUPCAKE! Gotta hand it to the owners carrying huge $ack$ of profit to the bank. I can't say enough, $4.00 for a CUPCAKE?! Food Network, not everyone can be as frivolous with expense as you when it comes to dining. NYTimes, must have been a great free meal?
The premium price I paid for an "Oklahoma Jumbo Beef Rib Plate Special", I can enjoy so much more at a Brazilian Churrascaria restaurant for a little more cost, which is all you can eat that includes multiple cuts of awesome rotiserie BBQ meat (beef,pork,chicken and lamb) and an outrageous salad bar. There's allot of hype stirred up about this place and kudos to the hyper uppers. Sorry NYC, ya'll missing out on some Awesome BBQ outside of this joint.
DON'T GO – The food was so-so. We bought a bottle of wine and they served it with plastic cups. I tried to order brisket with bread. The check-out girl tells me it comes with two sides. I inform her there is option for a plate that comes with two sides or I can order an entree and a side, which I am doing. She tries to tell me 2 sides with an entree as a plate is the same price as 1 side with an entree, which she eventually admitted was incorrect. And for what it was, the portions weren't particularly big or cheap.
D-f'in-licious – In a city like New York, you wouldn't necessarily expect there to be such a plethora of barbecue joints, but we are in luck, and i'm not one to complain. Daisy May's is by far the best there is, the pulled pork is sweet and juicy, the baked beans with burnt ends are heavenly! The best thing (IMHO) is the sweet tea, which comes in a take-home mason jar. All in all the place is a bit pricey, and considering it's ridiculous location, they shouldn't be charging what they do, however, Daisy May's really can't be beat, and it's worth the trek.
Call First! – Shlepped across town to find the dining room closed due to a private party on a Saturday night. Totally ridiculous. Went to the Landmark Tavern across the street. Great place!
It is NOT "the Best BBQ in NY". – I decided to take my parents, who were visiting from VA, to Daisy May's b/c it got great reviews on Oprah and GMA. Huge Mistake! It's a cafeteria style restaurant which means you have to order your food and pick it up before you sit down. At 6PM, the food had already been sitting out for a while and was very dry and tasteless. The only item that was good was the sweet tea, which is hard to find in the city. My parents and I were very disappointed and next time we will try the BBQ place in Harlem. Hopefully we will have better luck there.
Stay away from this place – I was there on my Bday .location is not the greatest at all.Like the chef says hes is there for the food not for the location or the place. No place to seat...I was looking foward to see for my self cause all the news about this place on TV.Well stay away from this place Im still burping.The seasoning is better you do it yourself and beleive I eat out alot.Even my husband say the worst BBQ ever.The ONLY THING I LIKE was the CORNBREAD evrything else not real BBQ at all.The people that goes there very low life.You need to go to the bathroom YOU get a KEY i felt i was i HIGH SCHOOL all over again asking for a PASS.Well parking another story is better after 8 pm.But walkig around tis place is not the safe place to be alone.Good Luck
Not Even Close to Southern BBQ!!! – We went to Daisy May's Saturday night. 3 of the 4 of us are from Tennessee, but live here now. In summation: totally and completely underwhelmed by the entire experience. Not even CLOSE to Southern BBQ! We ordered the "Tasting Menu" for all of us so that we could try a little of everything and were assured a reserved table/ service. (You must pay up front on the phone when making a reservation and you must order from the catering menu which basically gives you the chicken, ribs, pulled pork, several kinds of ribs, corn bread and 3 side items.) Service was great, atmosphere is bland and boring as was the food. The BBQ sauce tasted like it could have been bottled from the grocery, although the cole slaw had a nice taste. Mac and Cheese was bland and soupy. We had to ask for the corn bread that was supposed to come with the meal because they gave everyone "Grecian Bread" (as we call it in the South, although it is also referred to as "Texas Toast.") You can only order wine BY THE WHOLE BOTTLE, not the glass! Since no one was drinking wine but me, I had no choice but to go without. There were only 2 selections anyway- Pinot Grigio and Malbec. $15 charge for bringing in your own wine. I really have nothing positive to say about this except that those who do not know better, might like it?
So much food – My friends and I ordered up individual plate. What appears to be small portion soon reveals itself. There was just too much food. I ordered the pulled pork with creamed corn and dirty rice. The pulled pork was very tender but soon, the sweetness of the thing was too much. The creamed corn was delish, the dirty rice a bit dry. But if you mix it with the pulled pork, it's not too bad. I ordered the sweet tea in a mason jar, it's very sweet and very good. I tasted my friend's brisket, it was just as thick and rich as my pulled pork. The sweet potato mash was nice as well. The creamed spinach, I did not like.
