We were on our way to have dinner at a Mexican place when my brother, who was visiting, saw Brother Jimmy's BBQ. It did not take long to convince everyone to go there, this place being one of my favorite BBQ in Manhattan. It was a Thursday and this place was packed and...loud.
We started off by ordering drinks and i settled with the Honey Badger, a cocktail made with Bourbon, St Germain, orange juice and honey, a quite refreshing, not too strong of a drink.
We then ordered fried green tomatoes a dish my brother and nephew never tried. And I admit that these fried tomatoes were perfect, not soggy like the ones we got several days before when eating out.
All of us got different dishes. My brother got the Northern style ribs, that are hickory smoked and grilled with their original BBQ sauce. With it came some corn bread, as well as two sides (he picked collar greens and Mac and Cheese). I should mention that all of us who ordered meat got mac and cheese, a sort of go to dish when eating BBQ.
They were good, but not as good at the baby back ribs, that were smoked and finished off with their special sauce that had a hint of mustard. These ribs were literally falling off the bone.
My nephew Valentin, on his side, ordered the brisket that was quite good, not the best I ever had, but decent.
Jodi ordered the chopped Cobb without chicken and bacon.
We had a good time at Brother Jimmy's and the food was good. It was a bit loud though, but it is worth the pain...
Enjoy (I did)!
