BBQ for Lunch?

TipsyMcStagger Feb 20, 2007 03:53 AM

I have a craving for a pulled pork sandwich today for lunch.

Any recommendations for a laid back BBQ lunch venue? Not interested in Blue Smoke...too many suits in there at lunch time.

Any 'hood is fine.

    Daisy May's (46th and 11th Avenue) offers the best bbq in town. Particular favorites include OK beef ribs, Memphis pork ribs, chicken , chili and great sides - baked beans, corn, sweet potatoes, beans and rice and an occasional special, macaroni and cheese. It is take-out but has an adjacent room with ample seating.

      I really like RUB on 23rd in Chelsea. Their pulled pork is really good. They don't have as many sides as I'd like to see but they have a good mayo based coleslaw and fried onion strings that are addictive. And their beer selection (if that's of interest) is also great.

        I'll second RUB. It's my favorite of the city's BBQ places, and the pulled pork is especially reliable.
