Village Voice's Description

Located in a former Williamsburg garage, Fette Sau ("Fat Pig") channels the sainted barbecues of Central Texas, serving up 'cue on a plain tray on a sheet of butcher paper. While there are two sauces available, you've got to put them on yourself. On a recent revisit, the barbecue was as spectacular as ever (preferred: brisket, pork chop, pork belly), greasy and as smoky as a brush fire on the prairie. The fact that the meat selection is quirky and variable (but featuring boutique meats), only makes you want to visit more often. Sides like potato salad and crunchy pickles have a higher success rate than even Texas barbecues. We love this place.

    This place is BBQ heaven. Large portions, excellent variety, taisty side dishes, excellent meet, and even a taisty pickle on the side. Try it out on a week night because weekends often have lines out the door. They also deliver in Brooklyn during the week days.

    Once a trendsetter, now a member of the Williamsburg establishment, Fette Sau serves up a rotating menu of pork and beef ribs that leads some to tag it as the best BBQ in NYC. [Eater 38 Member]

  • Fette Sau serves up a rotating menu of pork and beef ribs that leads some to tag it as the best BBQ in Brooklyn, if not NYC.

    No question, it's the best barbecue in the city. The best part is the casual & playful atmosphere: beer served in mason jars, buffet style line-up & huge communal tables.

  • Nina Y. on 07/24/11

    Get a gallon of good beer (the tap handles are meat cleavers!) and share with your table while feasting on pork.

    Eat the meat!
