Hit or miss brisket unevenly finished with salt, cold ribs, strange barbecue sides like edamame salad and pommes frites — if you're a neighborhood-oriented restaurant eater living in the East Village, if you don't seek out the best place for a cuisine, Hugh Mangum's clean, modernist corner spot Mighty Quinn's is fine. You finally have decent barbecue in the East Village that you don't have to venture far for. If you're actually seeking out great barbecue and need to check a place off your list that you've heard things about, going once to Mighty Quinn's will be enough. New York has better barbecue. Head up to Hill Country... you'll make out much better. — Arthur Bovino, 1/31/2013


  • Holy shit, you guys! The pulled pork sando is like meat clouds in between bread clouds. In heaven. Smoked and seasoned by Jesus himself. Try it.
  • Don't be a sucker and wait for a table. Get your food to go and head to The Scratcher around the corner at 5th and Bowery.
  • Beef ribs, pulled pork, and beans with burnt ends all excel at Hugh Mangum's modern-looking barbecue joint.
  • Weve reviewed all sorts of Barbeque, but none that can so elequently combine the grit of Texas Brisket and Sweet Tang of Carolina pulled pork. Enjoy, and hold onto your napkins.
  • The brisket & the pulled pork are both incredibly well done. And surprisingly, the BBQ sauce is good enough to be worth putting on top. Remember: vinegar slaw, not creamy.
  • Barbecue is a cornerstone of cheap eatin, and theres no better spot for carnivorous feasting on a budget than Hugh Mangums packed East Village smokehouse (TONYs pick for best new 2013 BBQ joint).
  • When faced with city cue, purists are quick to add the begrudging qualifier, Its pretty goodfor New York. This low and slow meat haven needs no such addendumits mighty good barbecue, period.
  • Here is the menu
  • The Brisket Sandwich will CHANGE YOUR LIFE. Without a doubt the best in NYC
  • Best BBQ in NYC. Get the pulled pork and brisket platter.
  • Please god, eat here.
  • Come on without. Come on within. Order the brisket sandwich @ mighty quinns.
  • Get the naked brisket with all of the free sides, and the baked beans stuffed to the brim with burnt ends. Eat happy for cheap: $10 person. Best BBQ in Manhattan.
  • Get naked. More meat.
  • Grab a beer before waiting in line to order your food. Makes the wait more tolerable.
  • New to the BBQ scene, this spot has slowly climbed to the top of our list. We usually devour the brisket, the pulled pork, and the beef ribs. Everything is amazingly juicy and delicious (and messy).
  • Jzus fasza!
  • I've been to bbq joints all over the United States and this one takes the cake by far. The brisket is on the level of a minetta tavern black label burger... Stupidly good. Imho, get the creamy slaw.
  • Great ribs
  • Few things better than the brisket sandwich with slaw and red chilis. And don't sleep on the chicken wings, they are fire
