    My understanding is that Mighty Quinn's is a New York institution but coming from the midwest, the BBQ here, while tasty, is just better than average. Had the burnt ends which would have failed entirely had the sauce not saved them... The ribs, however, were definitely a high point and they are recommended. Kudos for the sauce but y'all want to take a trip to some real innovators and find out what burnt ends (and, therefore, your brisket) are supposed to be. 3.5 stars, really. The ribs are quite good and the sauce is supremely decent.

    Great BBQ for the area. Bit more $ than Dallas bbq but it's in a whole different class. Counter service, not table service. Some wines and beers but not a full cocktail menu. Highly recommend the dinosaur rib (beef rib). Pricey but worth it.

    We had the brontosaurus rib over the weekend, it's not something I'd advise eating on your own and great for sharing. It was pretty a pretty good, melt in your mouth, fall of the bone rib. We enjoyed it. We didn't have much of a wait either, service was pretty good.

    Wasn't great, wasn't bad. If you like sweet BBQ, then you'll probably like this place better. Ordered the burned ends. They were already in a thick sweet BBQ sauce. Didn't look or taste anything like burnt ends. The sweet corn fritters were good. As were the pickles. Won't be back, it's just not my style of BBQ.

    Delicious BBQ with food that will easily fill you up. The main appeal here for me was their variety of meats and sides as well as the atmosphere of the place that makes everything and everyone around you feel like you're at some family BBQ. I ordered half a rack of ribs with sides of kale slaw, baked beans, and macaroni and cheese. I wasn't a huge fan of their kale slaw but everything else had a "homemade" taste. The beans were a bit too sweet for my taste but they still packed a lot of flavor, as well as the macaroni and cheese and ribs which filled me up rather quickly! The ribs were cooked great, and even though they may not slide off the bone they had a robust, smokey taste and texture that left me continously intrigued to go for another bite, even after I was already "full." Only my second time here but I'm already looking forward to my third!

    Awesome place to go if you are craving barbecue. I ordered brisket, pulled pork, and their pork sausage. The brisket was my favorite, it was so tender that I had to resort to fork to scoop up the meat because it will fall apart if I use toothpick. The pulled pork was just what I expected. However, their pork sausage was quite mediocre.

    We came from western Kentucky to visit NYC for the day.. I could smell the meat and hear the music pulling us into the door.. The brisket melted like butter in my mouth and I quickly followed each mouthwatering bite with a spoonful of beans that had this smoky sweat taste and a bite of hash brown casserole that was cheesy and warm just how it should be washing it down with their sweet tea all while sitting outside on the streets of NYC.. Honestly a dream come true. I will always make a trip to Mighty Quinn's whenever I'm in the city.. Hands down great place with great people and great music.. It was great!!!! Lol thanks again and hope to be back soon!

    We have been wanting to try this place after seeing it on Food Channel. I thought the 2nd Avenue location was the flagship location and an actual sit down restaurant with wait service. I actually called ahead of time to ask and I was told that it was. The set up is horrible. The line cuts across the middle of the eatery. If you sit on the communal table people are standing on your back. Now, it took 15 minutes from the time I ordered the burning hot brisket to get to our table. Food is lukewarm at best. There are no utensils or napkins except all the way up front where the line is still not moving. This could be a great place if it were designed better and you get hot food. It is not cheap either. The beans were very good but they were the only warm side we got. It was not worth a trip into the city.

    Such a great BBQ spot. I had the pulled pork sandwich, and drenched it in the Carolina vinegar, and it was amazing! Service was attentive, but not overbearing. Great suggestions. Great prices. The ambience was great for kids which is important for me. A top 3 favorite for me, in New York for BBQ.

    Fantastic south-style barbeque with a modern feeling. Staff is very kind and handle chaos and busy times quite easily. Most importantly, the food is AMAZING!! Everything is cooked with good attention to detail and the meats especially have that phenomenal "smoked/smokey" taste. Although there isn't too much of a variety to choose from on the menu, there's enough variety for a group of 8 people or so to each enjoy something different. There is quite a variety in drinks tho, whether your grabbing a soda or a beer. The aesthetic of the store is quite the fusion between modern and old-fashion but it is definitely comfortable, has great lighting and a unique feeling. Overall, it's a fantastic place and I would definitely recommend it to any meat-eater.
