Obviously there are cities with more famous bbq traditions than New York. However, there is a reason that some of the countries best (in every field) see NYC as a place to call home. Having been recently named New York Best New Restaurant in a Zagat survey, Mighty Quinn’s Barbeque has been a busy go-to joint for hungry East Villagers and others, citywide.
With their melt-in-your-mouth slow cooked meats and hearty sides, the queue out the door of Quinn’s side entrance will surely continue throughout the winter. It will absolutely warm your insides leave you wanting more, if you can fit it in. The menu is brief but like the restaurant itself, only the most important things are needed at Mighty Quinn’s, as their mission states.
Our party ordered a pound of brisket, a half chicken and serves of pulled pork and ribs. Accompanied with pickled vegetables, coleslaw (vinegar or creamy), fries and burnt ends baked beans; we had our work cut out for us. The dining room is set up like a cafeteria eatery with rustic warehouse-style fittings and although the line to order can be daunting, it moves incredibly fast. Drink options include a carefully curated selection of draft and bottled beers as well as sodas.
For such as inexpensive option, the food is always fresh and free of all those unwanted chemicals that are ever-too-present. Mighty Quinn’s Barbeque came highly recommended, and we not only second that notion but also put an extra emphasis on how good this joint is.
Join the line and wipe the drool away from your lips as you wait your turn. A truly great restaurant.
