We had the opportunity to have lunch here. We all thought the food was below par and didn't accommodate Celiac patient very well although they said they could. I felt rushed out. If you like food with flavor skip this place.

I have been to NY 4 times and very often I went for dinner in this nice place. Meat is really good, quantities are great for the price. Cocktails are various and definitely great. I really suggest it

Been here years ago and it was good. Not this time. Fries were old and cold, when I told the server he took the plate and just dumped more fries on top of the cold fries. The corn was mushy not crisp at all. The waitress was pouring more water and spilt water in my plate and just walked away.... More

After an utter disaster at TGI Fridays, the hotel where we stayed recommended Dallas BBQ. How glad am I that they did. By far the best place we have eaten in NYC. For the starters to the main course, perfectly cooked, huge plates, very accommodating where children are concerned, they even have their own mocktails which come in a goldfish... More

Please refer to my title above: Cheep! Good! Dependable! That about sums it up, especially for those on a budget. The food is not elegant but fast and tasty and not expensive at all. Oversized drinks and beers help. Stick with staples like ribs, 1/2 chicken and baked potatoes. Salads are not their specialty. Avoid the corn on the cob.... More

We were just walking by and decided since they had stuff my kids eat, we would stop for lunch. The food was ok, but based on how empty the place was it could have been a lot better. If you get soggy room temperature fries when there is only 20 people in the place, what happens when they are slammed?... More

The only thing this restaurant has going for it is that the prices are reasonable. My chicken sandwich was underwhelming... just sliced rotisserie chicken with a modest amount of BBQ sauce. A piece of the chicken came with an unexpected bone fragment. Lots of fries but they were very average and not seasoned. Service was so slow that the food... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
