Did you have any pie at Virgil's Lance???

Not that I have anything against barbecue, but what's with bloggers and barbecue joints when it comes to choosing a place to eat in NYC?

I feel as though there must be some underlying reason for this. I'd continue on here with some bad puns, but I won't.

Yeah, Times Square's not so gritty anymore. Still want to see it every time I'm there, though. I'm like one of those wide-eyed out-of-towners bugging Watson for directions every two seconds.

Nice link, huh Watson? Pretty sly of me, dontchya think? I call your attention to the last paragraph. Anymore questions?


Virgil's is pretty good. There's better barbeque in town, but not conveniently enough located for your purposes (though there's one of about the same quality nearby, the name of which escapes me). Next time you're coming down, let me know and I'll have a list for you.


Why barbeque in NYC? Why not Italian? For BBQ you should be in NC or Texas, shouldn't you?

Yes. Linkmeister. You are correct!

Did you continue up the block to Jimmy's Corner? One of the last bits of pre-Disneyfied Times Square remaining. And the beer is pretty reasonably priced.

North Carlonia barbecue? No, Memphis barbecue. Those who appreciate some good barbecue should get themselves to The Rendevous in Memphis before the old man who cooks all that stuff dies. Don't go on Mondays or Sundays, though, cause it ain't open. Dreamland in Tuscaloosa is pretty good, too, and the stuff I've had in Texas ain't bad. But North Carolina barbecue is just too...limp. Pulled pork and vinegar-based sauce just doesn't do it, man.


the best NC bbq in New York is at Brother's.

Which is from Detroit.
