We went here as it was close to our hotel and had good TripAdvisor reviews. They were bang on!! Jimmy's was hopping but the found room for the 3 of us. the service was quick and cheerful, beer was cold, and food was delicious and plentiful. the Smoked meat especially was outstanding, but the ribs are excellent too. One comment I do have is that they had a sandwich board advertising all you can eat that night. we got there around 6:30 pm and were told the special ended at 5 as it was a game night. I expressed my disappointment that they had left the sign out after 5, and the manager came and listened to my concerns and thanked me for sharing my concerns. They didn't do anything as recompense but honestly, the cost of all-you-can-eat was similar to what we ordered, and completely enjoyed, so it was really a non-issue. I appreciated being listened to and heard. Overall we definitely recommend Brother Jimmy's!!

Restaurant across the street from Penn Station / Madison Square Garden (MSG).

We visited on night where an event was occurring at MSG. Plenty of people out. Bar had a good number up front. Restaurant wasn't so crowded.
Food was good, but pricy for portion. Service was quick, as was food delivery.

Great BBQ in the heart of NYC, right across the street from Madison Square Garden. Service was prompt and friendly, with the server and staff paying close attention to our needs. Food was delicious, including the large hush puppies as a teaser to the meal. Authentic and reasonably priced for the city. Bathroom and service area was in an awkward location on the second floor that required us to walk through a less than decorative space from our table. But that did not get in the way of a great meal.

We have been here before on a previous trip and went twice on this trip! The food and service was absolutely outstanding! I cannot recommend the loaded fries enough, my new favourite dish! Succulent BBQ basted chicken with fries choice topped with cheese, diced tomatoes, BBQ sauce and ranch! The ribs are so tender the meat falls off the bone. We also got Chicken Caesar salad which was good... We will definitely be back especially as the prices are so reasonable and the service is excellent!

The ribs were tender and juicy, and the sauces were decent. Prices were typical for NY, and the size of the portions was fine. Our table shared an appetizer (spinach artichoke dip), and I had 1/2 rack of ribs (with a piece of cornbread). Left full. Drinks were a little higher than other NY bars and restaurants, but probably due to location.

The first floor gets really busy before events at MSG, but the second floor is more relaxed, so don't be intimidated by it looking full when you walk by. Location is super convenient though if you are at MSG or Penn Station, right across the street.
