Jersey City is in the midst of a dining revival and this is a good addition to the scene. Urban smokehouse with all manner of meat cuts. We had the sampler with brisket, pork belly, and pork ribs. We thru in an extra beef rib too and all were moist and delish. Lots of side options available too (jalapeño corn bread was noteworthy). Menu is a mash of southern roadhouse and Mexican, so there are taco options too. Cocktails lean heavy on tequila variations; plus they have a decent selection of bourbons (nothing too rare, but not just Jack D either). Price is about what you'd expect up here. Relaxed/casual atmosphere (wood benches both inside and outdoor). Worth a visit.

Was there on a weeknight. Not too crowded, maybe 3/4 capacity. We were seated promptly and the server was very friendly and attentive. I had the meat sampler (Brisket, pulled pork, & pork belly) with the roasted sprouts and the wife had the pork belly. First, let me just say, the sprouts are absolutely delicious. I could have eaten just that. The brisket wasn't bad, tender and not dry. Needed the assistance of the provided house sauces though. I really enjoyed the pulled pork and pork belly (as did the wife). I will concede it's a bit pricey for a BBQ joint, but it's sort of expected in that area. Still worth it if you're craving some BBQ.

The restaurant was fill when I got there. I thought it was a sign that the food was good. Boy was I wrong. I ordered a half rack of baby back ribs, the classic coleslaw and a diet coke. The ribs came too quickly, which meant they were stockpiled to go out. They were burnt, dry and tasteless. The coleslaw was not much better. Everything was a la carte. The only good thing was the diet coke. Plus it is too expensive.

picnic benches are the perfect decor for this VERY LOUD, BBQ joint in Jersey City. Absolutely delicious meats, and sides! I could have eaten the brussel sprouts all night! Very casual dining. Try the churro ice cream sandwich. Amazing.

Hamilton Pork is an acceptable option in the Jersey City area if you are craving barbecue meats. The meats are very tender but could use more bbq flavor without the aid of bbq sauce. The menu is a la carte - which means side dishes will add additional cost to the price of a meal. The side dishes are portions for one. (The sauteed kale is very good) Seeing four types of side dishes, not sure why these are not included in an entree's price; they aren't worthy or special in my opinion to be separately priced. The entrees are average in portion and probably would not be satisfying if one is very hungry. Would estimate that a dinner (entree and a side) for one is at least $20 without beverages and gratuities.

Hamilton Pork could do better in flavor and menu pricing.
