Oh yeah.

Anyone who lives in or around NYC should make the trip to this place. At roughly 131st and Broadway, it is a short walk from the 1 train stop on 125th street. Oh, but how it's worth it...

From the outside, it looks like some sort of crazy Chinese Movie Theater! Lots of red and yellow lights indicate what's churning inside... or rotating on a spit, that is. Lots of barbecue! Top scores for atmosphere. New York Style Barbecue through and through. Big industrial style warehouse, with a cellar like quality and massive leaded glass windows. Somewhat dark and candlelit, which provides a nice accessory to the flaming barbecue.

And the aroma! The smell of burning wood, burning flesh, and my burning grumbling stomach as I walk in. Smoky paradise. Bring on the meat!

Or the beer... I love the connection between barbecue and craft microbrews. It is growing! At least two dozen microbrews on draft, all of them hand-carved on wooden plaquets behind the bar. Many locals, lots of high-quality quaffable stuff. Mmmm.

The food? Spicy chicken with collard greens and baked beans for me. And hot corn bread too. Absolutely delicious with ample portions and great service.

Damn I love this place. I'm going. That's it. I'm going again.

Stopped in for dinner here on a Saturday evening. The place was packed with a 1.5 hour wait for a table of 3. Luckily we were able to snag a table in the bar area which is a really good idea to entice people to stick around. The beer selection was pretty decent with a lot of local stuff on the menu - Sixpoint, Brooklyn, and then some other good stuff like Troegs and Yuengling. The decor was pretty cool, but the atmosphere was good too. The place had nice lighting and nice upbeat atmosphere and the music wasn't too loud that you could have a conversation with the person next to you.
The service was good, the staff were knowledgeable about the beers and food and they were able to answer any questions I had. The food was amazing, best Bar-B-Que I have ever had hands down. Everything on the menu is good and their chicken wings are out of this world. The beer is a nice touch that you don't have to choose between BMC but you can wash the food down with a nice local craft beer. Awesome place, worth it for the food alone, but the beer is really a nice touch.

I stopped here on a Wednesday night with my daughter, being that we were in the mood for good BBQ and we were in Manhattan. This restaurant is a surprising find in west Harlem, at least for me. Really cool atmosphere with lots of wood decor, old movie posters, and biker-themed stuff too. Not as much dino-related pictures as I'd expected. There were about 25 tables with seating for maybe 150+ people (just a guesstimate).

There were about 30 taps, plenty of good craft beer choices but nothing outstanding. As an example of what was offered, I had a Sixpoint Rye when we were seated and a Dale's Pale Ale with dinner. $5 and $6 respectively.

The food is really good and reasonably priced. Not very fancy but delicious and plentiful. A good stop for dinner but not a recommended stop if you're only looking for a beer. Manhattan has too many excellent alternatives versus this.
