We were looking for a typical BBQ place and this was one of the suggestions. The place is popular and there's no table service so you need to queue in order to get your food. Apparently you can't get a table before you have your order, but there was no one to explain this to us. The beef brisket and... More

Beef brisket to die for and a sweet brioche roll that helps put every single bite down. Worth the wait!

Vastly overpriced and overrated in our opinion, we paid over $50 for what in reality were 3 beef cobs and 3 small orders of fries. We all ordered the 1/2lb options but all received vastly different quantities of meat. Also without the table sauce the meat had no real disernible flavor. Certainly the 'smokey' flavor of BBQ was AWOL

I think I had the best ribs in NYC! I went at 8pm and there were some line, but the waiters were very efficient and we did not waited more than 10mins. The ribs are just E-X-C-E-L-L-E-N-T, with all the siders that come with (Coleslaw and so on). Highly recommend this place!

Mighty Quinn's is like a 'real food' fast food diner, pick a table, pick your food, pay and eat! The meat is all fantastic, My husband and I thought we would share the Brotosaurus rib to start then go up for brisket.... there was no chance we could eat anymore after the ribs so had to go back the following...

Sorry so late on this review. Went here on 3/7/17. Me and my friend were on the UES and wanted some bbq and we were going up to 125th street then we looked up good old Yelp and found Mighty Quinn's. The food was awesome. I got the burnt ends and baked beans. My friend was hankering for pulled pork... More

Really good BBQ in the heart of Manhattan. Is it KC Joe's? No. Is it Cosy Corner in Memphis? No. But it does satisfy the BBQ craving for sure. I would definitely go again.

We headed to Mighty Quinn' on the Upper East Side in search of their beef ribs made known to us through Bobby Flay. We were so disappointed when we found out that they were out of the ribs by around 3 PM that day! We ended up with burnt ends, pork ribs, and chicken both of which were fantastic, but... More

The brisket was phenomenal and the ribs were amazing. Wish I ordered more. Could have done without the burnt ends as it had too much sauce. The ribs and the brisket as well as the black beans, coleslaw and onion sides made up for it. Will be coming back for more. Make sure to get the ribs and brisket.

Staying in East Village

Neighbourhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighbourhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
