I was looking for a BBQ place and stumbled upon Daisy May's BBQ USA, a small joint located off the beaten path, close to the now popular Gotham West Market. Going there is like stepping in another dimension, the decor being a bit over the top...
So, you go at the counter, order your food, and then, they give you a tray with your order few seconds after. Quick, but not so cheap compared to other BBQ restaurants that I found much better. Then you go to the back where they have a dining room with communal tables or sit at the counter, enjoying people watching.
I decided to go with one of their combos, that had sweet and sticky ribs, St Louis style, smothered in a Kansas city style sauce that I thought was delicious. Unfortunately, the ribs were a bit dry, and not at all falling off the bone, as advertised...I also got the brisket that was again dry (I did not finish it)...The sides were better, especially the mac and cheese that I thought would be terrible considering the experience with the meat. But you know what? It was fairly decent, as was the cole slaw.
I was disappointed to say the least. Would I go back to Daisy May's BBQ USA? Probably not. There are much better places in NYC for similar prices.
