By chance we stopped for lunch at Maple Tree BBQ. Casual dining at its best. Friendly staff, eat in or take out and the best BBQ this side of the Mason Dixon line. We had the Cubano, a riff on a Cuban sandwich. pulled pork, expertly smoked and served with usual pickle and cheese on grilled sour dough bread. True... More

Went to Tanger and with a coupon decided to try this place 2 mi away. Small place, maybe 8 tables and noticed how clean the place was. We went with the chalkboard specials instead of BBQ. Vinny (?) the cashier explained all our choices in detail and we went with the pastrami and turkey (real turkey breast, not sliced)/Gouda sandwiches.... More

Just went there for dinner this evening. The food is absolutely delicious. I had the Tar Heel sandwich with pulled pork that was juicy and smoky with crunchy coleslaw and cheese on a slightly sweet roll. My husband had the 2 meat platter with smoked brisket and pulled chicken which he thoroughly enjoyed. No processed meat or fake smoke flavors... More

Ordered the 2 meat combo, Pulled Pork(Reg) and the Brisket, beans and sweet potatoes. My wife had a Smoked Turkey sandwich. We were not disappointed. Everything was smoky, juicy and delicious. Even the sauces were awesome. If you order brisket do not forget to ask for the white sauce. Really good. I love BBQ and in my opinion this place... More

Small restaurant with a few tables inside and outside. Picnic area across the road next to the Peconic River. The ribs and chicken were wonderful, the wings were good and spicy. The sweet potato and macaroni and cheese sides were scrumptious. A large menu selection demands many returns if the rest of the menu is as good as what we... More

We had the ribs, brisket, and pulled pork shoulder. We were surprised to find exceptional flavor, juiciness, and tenderness plus prices that were very reasonable. Together this is an excellent place to enjoy BBQ. We love BBQ but have never found one that made meats that had no hormones or antibiotics. This is a HUGE plus. No need to travel... More

We were a group of two families with 7 kids. Since it was a rainy day, they didn't have too much space inside. But the food was amazing. After a trip to Tx, no bbq here in NY was satisfying until this place. We had brisket, pork, pastrami, and wings. They all tasted really good. If you miss true bbq,... More

We have been going here for a while now, but the place recently changed hands so we thought we would give it a try. I like the way they have fixed up the place. The food is still very very good. I love that they have picnic tables across the street to sit and eat your lunch overlooking the river.

Went to Maple Tree BBQ for my husband's birthday. The place is small but reminds me of eating at someone's house. As soon as you walk in, you know this is going to be good , that bbq smokiness gets your tastebuds going. We were looking forward to pulled pork but found out they were out of it. Sensing my...
