The service was disappointing for the lack of people in the place. Was hoping the food would make up for it... it didn’t. It wasn’t bad by any means but not what I would consider “award winning”.

Found hair in order but GrubHub and Squealers refused to replace order. Terrible customer service from manager. Feel in love with the 86th Street location but have had several problems with Castleton

Barbeque was good. Pulled pork, baby back ribs, smoked chicken, smoked turkey, all good. Beef brisket, not so much. Portions were generous enough to take home for a second snack. BBQ is good. Pass on the sides. Didn't like the green beans or collards. Nobody...More
