Had a very good pulled pork sandwich. Shiner Bock on draft! For sure not the "Best Bbq EVER", but OK. More expensive than I'm used to, but it is NYC. Cheapest 12 oz beer is 6.00. Sandwich is 14.15 with tax.

Apologies for the late response, but it is FAR superior to Mighty Quinn's. Don't get me wrong, I like Mighty Quinn's, but its not nearly as well done as Hometown.
