They say "All good things come to those who wait," and they were right! We love our meats perfectly cooked low and slow in the smoker for hours. Barbecue takes time and that's OKAY because we love fall off the bone ribs and juicy brisket! Get ready to drool. We know a few killer barbecue spots around the area that you need to try. They are serving up finger licking dishes to get your hands on.
321 Mount Hope Avenue, Rockaway NY
Brand new spot! Owner's Greg and Steve traded in their suits and ties on wall street for a smoker! Between the juicy brisket and saucy ribs, they also serve up some killer cheese steaks!
Dish to try: Grilled Cornbread (off the menu style)
32 Orange Ave, Suffern NJ
Between the amazing beer on tap and BBQ this is definitely an awesome night out with friends. They've been serving up fresh dishes for 25 years and the cooking always stays consistent no matter when you go
Dish to try: Duck!! (A special on Friday's)
301 Center Ave, Westwood NJ
The talented Robert Cho throws a Korean twist on classic barbecue dishes! Famous for his unique donut sandwiches but the brisket never falls short on flavor.
Dish to try: The Chonut (Obviously)
811 Chestnut Ridge Road, Chestnut Ridge NY
Southbound is more than just BBQ. Their dishes include Po' Boys and specialty platters are out of this world. The portions are absolutely absurd and you better be hungry when you come here.
Dish to try: Sampler Platters! (definitely need to share)
