The lowdown

Mighty Quinn’s became a sensation at the original iteration of Smorgasburg — and it was soon followed by this brick-and-mortar outpost that would serve as a launching pad for an entire chain of pan-regional barbecue joints. We still think this original location is the best option and even if the meat options won’t blow away BBQ die-hards, they’re more than serviceable — especially for Manhattan. Piles of slow-cooked brisket are tender and fatty, the spicy chicken wings are some of the best in the city, and there’s even banana pudding for dessert.
