We love BBQ and tried Jimmy's for the first time. I had the brisket that had too much fat and did not have that smoky flavor. My wife had the pulled pork which she thought was a little above average. Waitress was not attentive enough....More

The restaurant was very expensive, small quantity and average taste. The waitress was very unfriendly. There are better options for BBQ in New York.

Stopped in for an early dinner. The place is a bit rough looking but the food was good and plentiful. I had the pulled pork and it was quite good. Nothing fancy here but it's good if you're looking for BBQ.

This restaurant is centrally located in midtown directly opposite Penn station. Greeting staff were friendly. Bar downstairs was busy and unfortunately we couldn't get a seat downstairs because it was too busy. There are TV screens both downstairs and upstairs showing a variety of sports....More

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York

I would call them directly. But it is a great place to have a party and they are close to the subway and MSG. I found it by accident and never regretted the experience. I hope you enjoy it.
