Was there with reservations around 5:00PM on a night when Billy Joel was playing at Madison Square Garden. We were seated upstairs right away. It was fairly empty but around 5:45PM the upstairs area filled up. Wait service was friendly and efficient. Food was very tasty for the three of us--1/2 pound of brisket, pulled chicken sandwiches, and side dishes. Price is reasonable as the three dinners and three sodas w.o. tip came to around $60.

If you’re heading to a game at MSG this place is right across the street. Of course, a lot of people know that which is why it’s very difficult to get a table. On this visit, before the NYR-LA game, we were told at the door that there were no tables available for hours. We managed to snag a seat at the bar and within 15 minutes a 2nd one opened up. It was perfect. Games on the TVs, quick refills on our beers and the usual great food. A basket of wings (buffalo for me) contains a dozen. Cooked extra crispy as requested. We split a basket of fries - possibly the best fries I’ve ever had. All good here as long as you don’t need a table fast!!!

We went here the last time we visited NYC and loved it so much we had to go back again. The service is excellent, food is delicious and reasonably priced, and it’s super quick to get in and out. The strawberry margarita is the best!

Great little place next to MSG offering huge portions of wings, loaded fries & other sharing plates. It’s got sports on all the TVs and a lively atmosphere. We had a great afternoon here with friends and enjoyed the offers on the pitchers of beer – a really reasonable price for a low-key afternoon out.

We were hungry and stumbled across this place while walking towards Penn Station. Food was good, but took a long time to be served and was cold when it arrived, but we didn't have time to ask for it to be heated up. Wings, pulled pork and burgers were all tasty. Maybe wait staffed called in that day, because our server was very slow and looked like she had way too many tables to serve. She was nice, but a bit frazzled. We woukd try this place agsin on a future visit since I am not sure we caught it at its best.
