Hill Country Chicken: Flatiron

With celebrity fans like Serena and Venus Williams, Hill Country Chicken is the first of its kind in Manhattan to bring authentic southern hospitality to our island of fun, and we can’t get enough of it. Fried is the key word here when it comes to all good things barbecue, so we definitely recommend their Classic Fried Chicken, Fried or Boneless Tenders or their Kickin Chicken Sandwich with chipotle mayo and kale coleslaw.  Yum!

Brother Jimmy’s BBQ- Multiple Locations

Brother Jimmy’s has spots located all over Manhattan, the most known one being right outside Madison Square Garden on 8th Avenue.  These guys pull no punches when it comes to the pungent and absolutely scrumptious barbecue items that they serve.  Some that we recommend include their Carolina Pulled Pork which is slow smoked & pulled with Brother Jimmy’s original BBQ sauce as well as their Hush Puppies with warm maple butter and Hot Buffalo Wings as some starter dishes.  Absolutely heavenly.  More information here.
