Village Voice's Description

This joint project of Harlem's Charles Southern Kitchen (which began life as a panel truck called Charles Mobile Soul Food Kitchen) and barbecuist John Wheeler blends soul food and barbecue. While the fried chicken is meaty, moist, and delicious, parts of the barbecue menu are even better. A surprise favorite is the pulled-pork sandwich, with a modest amount of very smoky pork shoulder surmounted by creamy coleslaw on a sesame seed bun. The beef rib (the menu is careful to use the singular) could double as a baseball bat. There's a pleasant sit-down dining room with a view of Broadway, too.

Tips from foursquare

  • Travel Channel on 10/11/11

    Take on the Squealer Challenge! You have 15 minutes to devour a 2-lb. pulled pork po boy topped with a scorching hot BBQ sauce. As seen on Travel Channel’s Man v. Food Nation.

  • The Corcoran Group on 11/17/11

    Grab a seat in a booth and order up succulent BBQ Baby Back Ribs (go for the half rack) with a side of black-eyed peas and candied yams. Or get the famous Fried Chicken.

  • The Feast on 06/01/11

    Charles Gabriel serves up his legendary, strictly Southern-style fried chicken uptown at a fraction of the price of anything available in lower Manhattan. [Definitive Fried Chicken List]
