Review: Hill Country has some of the best BBQ in Manhattan. It’s a great spot to go with a group of friends, get some buckets of beer and some meat. Tons of meat options, one more delicious than the next – brisket, beef, pork, chicken, and sausage. Great side dishes as well. With the live music downstairs, cheap beer and great food, Hill Country is the perfect spot for a fun night out with all of your buddies.

Review: Wildwood is a large format, Park Ave. BBQ spot. We’ve had both brunch and dinner here. The decor is pretty kitschy but don’t let that fool you. Wildwood has solid BBQ dishes for brunch, lunch and dinner. It’s a decent place to grab a casual bite to eat if you’re in the mood for some good BBQ with your significant other or a bunch of buddies. They also have a ton of tv’s around the restaurant and bar if there’s any game you want to keep tabs on while eating.

Review: Ahh Brother Jimmy’s. The boyfriend and I met here and it’s definitely not a date spot – we like to say we fell in love in a hopeless place. This is the type of bar you come to to chug cheap PBRs or down fishbowls with your buddies. It’s a sloppy mess of newly minted NY bros and chicks. Bro J’s is always a scene in the summer so get there early or the line will be around the block. Obviously it’s not a spot to bring a date but if you, your significant other and all your friends are looking to celebrate, Bro J’s is a good choice. So grab all your buddies, get sloshed and enjoy some awesome southern BBQ to soak up some of that alcohol.
