After a long wait and thinking the food must be good. I ordered a steak medium, ribs and shrimp combo. Got a plate full of fried onion garnish, a burner tough steak, water tasting ribs and delicious shrimp and fries. The only thing warm were the shrimp. The fries were cold but good and everything else was cold including the... More

I spotted this place in 2009, and every time I come to NYC I have dinner at Dallas BBQ. Food is amazing and very filling. Ribs and shrimp combo is strongly recommended (not to mention their mango Margaritas )

The establishment is busy. I opted for take out. It was not special. It was not the best or the worst BBQ I have tasted.

One our last trip to NYC we came across Dallas BBQ over in Queens and fell in love, so on our recent trip back we knew we had to go again, and even better we found out they had one in Times Square, it's that good we went twice. They are always busy but we never had to wait for... More

The rids fell off the bone and all the sides were good too! Anytime you can feed 120 people and have it taste good .....with very few complaints from even the teenagers, you must be doing something right! Service was good too! I would go back in a minute!

Top tip portions are so big get children to share otherwise if your anything like me and hate to see waste you won't be able to move. Food was tasty, atmosphere was lively and friendly worth the visit.

We went here on a recommendation and it was terrible. The place was busy and noisy, the food was terrible and the staff didn't even give you eye contact. It was the cheapest meal we had in NYC but I suppose you get what you pay for.

I saw this was Zagat rated and wanted to check it out. What I look for in good BBQ is a solid smoked flavor and great sauces. I had a chicken and rib combo and paid extra for white chicken meat and their honey-roasted sauce. Portions were healthy and the flavor was very good. The ribs were small, not as... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
