I was walking through the East Village on a Friday night. There was a long line on 2nd ave. Curious to know what was going on, I asked one of the people on the line. He said, "I love the brisket, and Brontosaurus Rib!" So I stood on the lengthy line, and when I finally met the front, it was a cafeteria style setup.
The employees were taking orders chopping up the large pieces of ribs, chicken, and brisket. The infamous Brontosaurus rib was the size of a small textbook. I was a bit too intimidated to try it but I was overjoyed to see my brisket being cut. I moved down to an array of pickled vegetables, such as cabbage, peppers, and onions. I chose all of them.
The brisket was so hearty, and succulent. I loved it! The barbecue sauce added an extra smokiness and sweetness to my dish. I wasn't a huge fan of the pickled vegetables by themselves. If I had gotten the bun, I think it would have been a great family of flavors.
I definitely recommend this place!
