Live in the neighborhood so we've been to Fette Sau numerous times. When we first started going, the food lived up to the reputation - ribs were so tender and meaty, brisket would fall apart, and pork belly and chicken would just melt away when eaten. However,I have noticed lately that the food quality seems to have suffered a bit.... More

Title says it all. Best tasting BBQ I've had in NYC. Order your meat by weight and get stuck in. Expect a queue and a wait for some space to eat but will worth it. Get some ribs and a 1/4 pound of everything going and you'll be amazed by the taste and surprised by the cost.

Fantastic food, great selection and speedy. We lucked out to get there on a cold day there wasn't much of a line, but the very few seats were all but taken. They ribs were by far the best and the burnt end beans were a close second. Only down side was $140 for 3 people for lunch and no alcohol... More

Get your meat on! The brisket was fantastic! The ribs cooked to perfection. Great sausages and the potato and broccoli salads where great sides. Nothing like it in Vancouver BC (where we are from). Will try to get back for lunch before we go!!

My husband and I went to the Brooklyn Brewery for a tour. We were hungry and saw this place on trip advisor. We took a chance, and we were thrilled! What a great BBQ place. Food was awesome & so was the ambiance. We will absolutely go back!

Visited here on our trip to W'burg based on the TripAdvisor reviews and weren't disappointed. Good quality, unpretentious BBQ food served in an authentic venue with great beer and whisky. Recommended.

Brisket and pork are okay but my last visit I tried the ribs. Way too much money for way too little meat. Baked beans are good but overall, too much money for too little value. Three small ribs, baked beans, and a coke was $29.

Just got to brooking and wanted some quick food. Quality is excellent and the surroundings are something different. Beans and brisket are excellent.

A friend claimed this was the best BBQ joint that she has been and she was right about that! The food was to die for and especially the beef briskets. I'm not a fan of brisket but that was my favorite dish hands down. The baked beans came in a close second. You absolutely have to try it. I think... More

Fette Sau is the best there is. Period. There may be a line out the door sometimes, but go to the bar and grab a drink while you wait. It is always worth it. I've been to all the other major names in BBQ around NYC, but Fette Sau is on another level. My only complaint is that it's small... More
