Great service. The waitress made great drink recommendations and kept us from ordering too much food. The BBQ isn't the best we've ever had but in addition to help ordering, the restaurant was happy to bring us extra bread and continued to check in on us.

Delaney Barbecue is my tried and true Brooklyn spot for some good Texan Barbecue. Amazing meat every time as well as good southern beer (Shiner), amazing side dishes, and pies for dessert. I've showed a bunch of friends this place and everyone always leaves happy and full. Couldn't recommend more!

The que is always very good here. The disappointment was there was no sausage and hasn't been for weeks. Given that they spent a lot of time perfecting theirs, the absence confounds me.

Skip the cornbread. Double up on the mac and cheese.

The brisket is their show piece,I've never had better,but the ribs weren't ready by the time we got there,and their version of pulled pork was pretty bad. Side dishes are excellent,and the service was great. They bought us a round of beers,because the ribs weren't ready.

The food was a unique spin on traditional Texas bbq. Positives are big bold flavors (hopefully you like pepper and spice) and a free 1/2 pound of meat on your birthday. Negatives, as odd as this may sound, the food came too fast (literally within a couple minutes). That immediately tells me some of the items ordered were not prepared fresh which is a big drawback in my book. The lack of more variety on the menu, portion size and seasoning were other areas that give me a little pause. I love brisket, but the bark on this brisket was over the top peppery. Also, I'm sorry but 2 - 3 ribs or 2 - 3 slices of brisket is not a meal. Where is the slab? Overall I had mixed feelings.

We'd been told all about Delaney by a friend back in Australia, so when we came to NYC we were sure to make the trip to Will to find it. The whole experience was awesome - best brisket we've ever tasted, cool fit out & vibe, and very friendly service. They were especially helpful with our young kids, doing a simple pasta for them and also not being phased when they turned the place upside down. We loved it.

Hands down the best pulled pork I've ever had. The brisket and turkey were also amazing. Even basics like deviled eggs were packed full of flavor.

Our server was top notch as well and went out of her way to make us feel at home in Williamsburg. Wonderful experience!

Service was great. As a picky eater I know by now what foods I may need to avoid. We were served an abnormally spicy batch of mac and cheese. They were quick to comp that portion of our meal and took it off the menu for the night. Typically there is a hint of jalapeno, but due to changes that can occur with agricultural season they were spicier than normal. other than that, everything was awesome! the brisket is a MUST!!!

Juicy and amazing flavors,
The brisket just melts and the pulled pork was a juicy as you like.
The pimms type cocktail was wonderful. Finished off with a very well baked key lime pie.
When we are back in Brooklyn we will be back.

If you want a great BBQ with no wrong choices this is the place to eat. The pulled pork was not covered in sauce but prepared with a flavorful rub. The spare ribs were so rich they fell off the bone. Dessert was only one choice so we didn't sample it.
I loved the family style service and the potions were so generous we took our left overs home for lunch.
Limited menu but great service and a nice selection of beer and wine.

If you're looking for great BBQ in BK, Delaney's is your spot. The waitstaff was great and we were there celebrating a birthday, so they gave us some free meat (join their birthday meat club!).

I'd highly recommend to any BBQ lovers in the city.

Delicious slow cooked pulled pork and brisket, juicy but fall of the bone ribs, slightly spicy hot links. Sides big enough to share. Helpful servers customize your order so your meal is just right.
