Nothing fancy. We were there for lunch. Ordered a whole chicken which was great. A turkey leg which was dry and didn't taste very good. Not freshly cooked that morning and Dry rub ribs, they were okay once again not cooked that morning and on the tough side.

Me and my partner visited daisy Mays on the advice of one of the tour guides from a tour we'd done a day earlier!! I wish we had not listened to him. We headed over thinking we were going to get some real authentic American smokehouse food similar to what we see on Man vs Food... Thankfully the portion sizes... More

Terrible. In a nut shell me and the Mrs sat on the toilet most of the night afterwards in our hotel! I was quite poorly for a few hours. Meat not cooked very well.

I was reading the reviews here at TripAdvisor and as I was passing by decided to go to dinner. When we enter the restaurant it had a creepy and dirty aspect. We went to take a look at the food and the aspect was no better. It was so discusting that we decided to leave even before ordering.

My oh my - where do I begin. I guess I'll start with the good: the delivery was fast, the packaging was excellent, and the meat was served in decent portions and taste. The ribs were tasty and large - and the brisket was moist and there was plenty of it. The side dishes, however,I couldn't stomach. The sweet potatoes... More

You least expect this little restaurant to be that good. It's a secret find where you least expect it. It's a self serve all traditional BBQ place, with some amazing flavors. You pick your food, pay and by the end of the counter it's ready to pick up. Then you go and find a seat in the large 6-seater tables.... More

I was here a few years ago and remember it being pretty good. So I was looking forward to returning. Service was fine. I still like the decor. The food was a letdown. The dry run ribs had no moisture. The sweet ribs and everything else was way too sweet. We had beans, creamed spinach and bourbon peaches. Everything was... More

I was quite surprised to find a BBQ on the west side of Manhattan just a block away from the USS Intrepid. The food was good and the portions were of decent size, and the three of us ate for under $50 (in mid-town Manhattan, even a McDonalds would have cost this much).

In the past I've had very good food here. This time, the place was empty and I've noted the prices have been raised. I ordered a pulled pork sandwich, to be eaten there. I was sitting down and eating it within a few minutes. It wasn't even warm and certainly wouldn't pass the minimal temperature standards. When going through the... More

6 (quantity) Kansas City sweet and sticky pork ribs without any sides cost $15.90 and a bottle of water costs $1.50 (total with tax was $18.94), the ribs were good but expensive counter service (no waiter) there are less expensive options like a chicken sandwich

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
