I am looking for good BBQ places in northern Westchester. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Best suggestion: Look elsewhere. I've never encountered edible BBQ in Westchester at all.

      Totally concur-good (or any) bbq in Westchester or nearly anywhere in the tristate region is as rare as great gribenes and mushroom barley soup in Lockhart.

    2. There is a drive in BBQ place that just opened in Danbury, CT, off of exit 4 on I-84 right next to McDonalds. This isn't that far from Northern Westchester. It's run by local pepole, not a chain place. They make everthing fresh and cook to order.
      They have pilled pork and BBQ ribs among other things.
      I had the pulled pork sandwich and an order of ribs. They both were good.

      1. I myself find the ribs at Ribs on the Run, in Yonkers, to be always terrific. Unfortunately this is a strip-mall takeout with zero ambience, although there are a few grimy tables if you must eat in.

        1. In New MIlford,CT give The Cookhouse a shot, they make true southern BBQ...LOW&SLOW!!!

          1. My southern husband & I really enjoy Memphis Mae's in Croton. It's a nice looking place, you could have a decent dinner date there, which is unusual for bbq. You can even get bbq by the pound. We even cross the TZ from Rockland to go there.

              I personally do not care for Memphis Mae's at all. The only good thing I have had there is the hog wings (smoked hog shanks). I grew up with a home in N.C. and would not compare this food to real bbq. Everything fried was extremely greasy on both nights I tried their food (spaced several months apart to give them a chance to improve), and when I complained about this I was told the chef did not care. The pulled pork is nothing to write home about, the ribs are only okay, and the brisket was tough. All this for over $20 a plate ....
              No thanks
