Fat Pig with friends

For a Sunday dinner we arrived at 6ish. The place was busy but we found a table with no wait. The line, not too bad. I love the feel of the place. The food gets a mixed review but I like it lots overall. Sausage,great. Ribs also great, Pork Shoulder kind of bland. The red sauce is pretty fabulous. Beans yummy, potato salad an undercooked failure, broccoli ok, beers great tasty selection. I look forward to coming back and trying some other stuff but the sides need work. Where is the corn bread? In the end we were a happy well fed bunch and didn't spend very much either. Do try it yourself.....
Smells good, but leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

First off, this place is poorly run. Got in line at 7:45, but the time we made it to the counter, 45 minutes later, they were out of most of the food we wanted. We ended up getting the flank steak (overcooked & dried out) bacon (pure fat) brisket (dried out except for the fat) and baked beans (the only edible thing there) I don't understand why people think this place is that good. Is it because BBQ is rare in NYC and people will eat anything and think its good? Being born and raised outside of Memphis, I can tell you its not that good. Overpriced fatty meats and long lines to get slim pickins of food. Service was bad too.
