Wow I am a bit surprised that a ten year old asked for the pig's head! Any kid I know wouldn't even try it. I'll have to admit. I was a bit skeptical to try the place out myself, but to my surprise it was great! The food was delicious and its a nice place to sit down for a meal.

Total swindle. Tiny portions, huge prices. Epic wait times (40+ minutes). And the worst sin of all: bland, bland food. Blah blah authentic BBQ credentials: I'm from the South, too, and lived in SE Asia--so I know the score. Don't take my word for it; check Yelp. $7 for a virgin glass of juice at brunch. $18 for a teeny "half" of a runt chicken at dinner. Sides include plain toast and plain cucumbers. Pork kind of chewy/stringy or fatty in all the wrong places (and I *adore* buttery fat in meat). Fake Nasi Ulam. They just fired their chef, so this piece is curiously timed--I smell a PR person at work.

This place is my favorite restaurant in NYC. The brisket alone makes this worth the trip. It was cooked perfectly, had a bunch of condiments to augment the little sandwiches you construct. My date had the chicken, which i typically never at a restaurant, but it was goood. Tender, juicy, flavorful. Also the brisket late night sandwich is now part of my routine on weekends. Kitchen closes at 2pm, but they do take out.

This isn't your typical BBQ place. These are small plates, meant to be shared. The ribs are great and the 'Cue Corriander Bacon and the Master Fat are absoltely not to be missed!

Tapas size portions not worthy of a BBQ joint. Appetizers and entrees served at random times. My friend never received his Brisket entree after a 40-minute wait and indifference from our waiter, so we bailed after that. My ribs were decent but nothing special. Had better at Bar BQ, Fette Sau and Hill Country (and real portions, too).

Normally, I hate bbq in this city -I grew up in Virginia with a pitmaster father. - and I have been underwhelmed by what passes for ribs in this city until I came to Fatty 'Cue. The meat was tender, not overcooked, not overly fatty and spiced to perfection. The pork ribs and the duck were especially amazing (the fish was good too, but I've had similar dishes elsewhere). I'm not sure what's up with that one customer, but everyone else there loved it too. I think NYMAG is remiss in not giving it a critic's pick.

For some reason, I can't give Fatty 'Cue a 10, but i don't think I've ever come as close! I've never seen, or even heard about a restaurant putting that type of cuisine on a table! Not cheap, but worth every penny (especially if you like duck). I was a bit turned off by the chicken, but our waiter talked me into it. Not as good as Mom does it, but one of the best I've had in NY (if you ever see Bobo Farms on a menu: go for it)! If you want to go out and have some progressive, delicious food with friends= Fatty 'Cue , but be prepared to pay... If you want to keep it cheap, just tell you're waiter or bartender. I went to the bar by myself and had a great conversation and some great snacks for a reasonable (not super cheap) price. Don't even get me started on the cocktails! If you're at the bar; tell the bartender what road to go down and let them make every turn. If you're at a table: great/unique dark & stormy, but i dig on "The 'Cue." I don't remember the list of obscure ingredients, but I'll remember to order it. Long story short: South 6th st is more than worth trip! Spend hours at Fatty 'Cue, and then play pool with friendly locals (in Williamsburg?... i was just as shocked) at the bar next door... East River, if my memory serves.

Thought 'asian barbecue' would be anything but bland but meat was indeed fatty and worse - blah. The things that would have added some much needed punch to our brisket and ribs (like dipping sauces, onions and coriander) were given in such tiny amounts, that they barely registered. Moreover, we didn't have enough bread to eat with the brisket ($18 - it is served 'sandwich style') and when we asked for two more slices we were told we had to order/pay for more! Why short-change the customer on dirt cheap items like bread, onions and dipping sauce! Can't name even the lowliest of places that wouldn't give you extra bread, if needed. Lack of flavor was the biggest let-down, though... We are locals and love asian food but won't be back. Be interesting to see if this place goes the distance.

Ate here last night and I'm still full. Excellent food, though.
