The year is 1936 and Carl and Grace Wetanson open a "Grace's Hot Dog Restaurant" that began a four generation family-run restaurant operation. The historic "Wetson's Hamburger" icon chain grew in the 1960's to almost 100 units dotting the landscape of New York City and surrounding areas. The 1980's brought Dallas BBQ and the 1990's brought Tony's DiNapoli to the New York City restaurant scene.
If you want to dine here, I hope you are ready to feel like they want to kick you out after finishing your plate. Busboys are anxiusly awaiting to take your plates and the floor sweeper stands next to your tabel waiting for you to get up. The recommend a 15% gratuity on the bill and put a sticker on the bill. That is very tacky. Would not recommend this place to anyone.
In all my years living in NYC this was my first time to this specific location. being that it was Mother's Day weekend, I expected to wait at least 15 min for a table, NOT!. As soon as we walked in we were shown to our table. The waiter came right over. Ray, very nice young man. Initially we werent ready to order. So Ray took the liberty in giving up another 10 minuted, and when we were ready he promptly came over. The portion of Sticky wings my mother ordered were so many wings until she had to take some home, and that was the half order. I ordered the chicken ceasar salad. And what a salad. I ate every bite.
The ambiance of the restaurant was great, the bathrooms were nice and clean.
Everything about this restaurant said NYC, and I loved it. I think BBQ's has become my new Mickey Dee fix this summer.
The prices are very reasonable, and the drinks were very nice.
I will definetly go back to this location's BBQ.
This is my favorite BBQ's to go to. I must say the Turkey Burgers are real good, and fulling, and for the price including fries in a sit in restaurant, can't make any complaints about it. I had love me the Wild Berry Pina Colada. Very fruity and just enough alcohol in it. Not too little, not too much. The price for the regular size, can't complain. There are other restaurants in NYC that may charge twice as much for the drink.
Also one thing: make sure you look at your bill before you pay for your food. Reason being is that on the advertisment on the table the paper says one price, and then the receipt may say another price. I had ordered a turkey burger with cheese advertised for $8.99, and the bill said $9.99 on it. Same thing happened with my cousin's order as well. I brought it to my waiters attention, and they changed the price (better have). Even though it was a $2 difference, I expected to pay for my food based on the price that was advertised. I will still go to BBQ's in Chelsea.
Can you believe it's in New York City and not Texas! Every trip I make to NYC includes a trip to BBQ's on 8th Avenue. I love the sticky wings but the BBQ is the bomb! They have several locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn but my favorite locals are 8th Avenue and 72nd St @ Columbus Avenue. The 8th St location in the West Village doesn't measure up.... they don't offer a Shimp and ribs platter like the other 2 locations and the wings look like chicks wings compared to the mega sized wings at the other locals. Fingah lick'n good!
This is a must eat restaurant when visiting New York City. The food is Delicious, the drinks are amazing and the prices a very reasonable. The service is great. I have very little complaints. However, I must warn you if you are wanted an intimate dinner with a love one, this is NOT the place to go. The atmosphere is upbeat and loud, but I would recommend it to anyone. Families included
I love going to this place. I've been there so many times that I've lost count. The food is always good. I've never had any problems. I normally go here for those famous Texas-size drinks I love so much! The only downside to this place is that it can get extremely crowded (never had to wait too long for a seat) and that may cause it to get noisey but overall, it's worth going back to. :)
