If you are looking for some good quick BBQ food in Williamsburg Brooklyn then you should head to Fette Sau which is a great place for all meat lovers. If you have visited New York, you know that most people don’t have backyards so doing BBQ isn’t always the easiest thing. They offer everything from brisket to ribs, pork cheeks, German potato salad, sausage, baked beans and the oh so delicious bacon ends. The ambiance is great for a group of friends grabbing some quick food and a drink but make sure to arrive early as they sell out of meats quickly. They opened at 12 on a Sunday and I arrived at 12:30 and had to wait on about a twenty minute line that by the time I got up to the counter all the ribs were sold out; but I was still able to sample everything else.
This restaurant does not have waiter service but has counter service. You can order what you like and they place it on a tray and and you can take your food inside on a picnic bench, at the bar or outside.
The meats are all written on a chalk board right by the counter and they do rotate so you might not get what you came for. If you are coming for a particular meat you should try calling ahead. You can order as little as you like so just tell them how much you want and what sides. Just remember that ½ LB of meat should be good for most of us. You can always go back for more. The meats can range between $20-$28 per pound and the sides are not included. We spent $78 for three people. No drinks included.
I drove in on a Sunday and was able to find free street parking only a block away. If you are taking the subway it’s a little walk from the L train. This is a great spot for a quick in and out meal. I am hoping to try some pork ribs next time I go!
