A great NYC noisy night out. Bustling, dark, loud, did I mention loud? Great drinks, good food, a good time was had by all. Excellent fried pickles, great meatless chili, awesome drinks.

By far the best nachos we've ever had. They had pulled pork on them with bbq sauce. Delish! Decent prices for a Manhattan restaurant.

This place does BBQ really well! It's definitely worth the short 2 block walk west from Times Square for excellent food, friendly service and reasonable prices. This was my first visit but I will plan to return the next time I'm in NYC.
