Barbecue
Morgan’s Brooklyn Barbecue brings you the very best food, drink, and atmosphere in the Lone Star tradition. Brisket, ribs, and pork smoked ‘low and slow’ in fire-burning pits, but with a craftsmanship and attention to quality and detail that can only come from people dedicated to hospitality and the art of Texas-style bar-b-cue.

If beer and BBQ were all Morgan’s did, we would already be the best restaurant serving ‘cue in the Brooklyn area. Add to that an original menu that features regional classics done right—house-smoked queso, tacos and sliders, pecan pie—alongside a deep well of liquor and beer knowledge provided by a staff that knows and cares about having a good time…well, you’ve got yourself not just a restaurant but a destination.

Get there early, we sell-out often, and stay late, because we always have a good time.

Great BBQ. It tastes the way BBQ should with tender meat that falls off the bone and quality sides.

The barbecue brisket sandwich was very good - and the meat fairly lean. Go for it.

This place is a wreck. The service was mediocre. There appeared to be some hardworking wait staff and some who had no idea what they were doing. The food was overpriced for what it is.

The food was not very flavorful. My family of 4 had cornbread, brisket nachos, sausage, candied bacon, old school Mac and cheese, and the 36 layer cake. All dishes were mediocre. Not horrible but not a place I would return to.

Followed their IG page and decided to try as a girls day out. Ordered the brisket with Mac n cheese and chicken n waffles. First we had to request a change of glasses and hot water w lemon to sanitize the silverware. The chicken was way overdone although the waffles were light and fluffy. The brisket was half fat, I guess lean is the way to go. Although he top layer of Mac n cheese was nicely browned, it was loose and runny; all were luke warm. Didn't measure up to the IG. We all were disappointed.

Food was absolutely amazing and the portions were pretty generous and decently priced. We sat inside since the tables outside were filled and it was still an amazing experience. Would definitely return and hope to snag an outside seat!

Just regular solo date night. Wings and kale salad is my preference. Always amazing. Not expensive at all and worth way more than the cost.

The food and drinks are insanely over priced. A small cup of coleslaw (that's right, coleslaw...chopped cabbage that is so cheap you could live off it for a year and only spend $20) was SEVEN DOLLARS. Not only was the coleslaw $7, it also tasted like a refrigerator which means it was either very old or the cabbage had been chopped and sat without dressing for a long time. The ribs were actually very good, however overpriced and really tiny. The wine, served in a Coupe Glass should have not been $13. It was not even a full glass. Even the bartenders and waitstaff agreed they should be serving a normal size glass. These owners obviously think that their location warrants such prices, but there are many other places people can go that serve good food at fair prices. Oh and the service is horrible! The waiter was very nice but it took like a year for him to just ask me what I wanted to drink and another year to get his attention and the check.

We went to Morgan's to celebrate back to school with the kids (teenagers) and the food was great as it always has been. Best thing is the fatty brisket. Next would be ribs. Pulled pork is great too according to my fam. The weather was lovely so we sat outside. It was extra fun because there was a KISS concert at Barclay's so the people watching was great. Our server could have told us we ordered too much food (because we did) and maybe he needed help because it took a long time to get the bill and then for him to return to get my credit card. Plenty of bus people though so table was clean and our food arrived quickly. Will go back again. and again. Thanks!

Service was slow, food was great. Was not happy that you couldn’t get happy hour drink specials because we sat at a table. Needed to be at bar to get deals which was only 5 feet away.

My Husband loves BBQ so, I made reservations for his BD. When I made the reservation I made a note that we were traveling with our 1yr old and needed a high chair. It was a rainy day. We arrived 30min early. We were seated immediately and I can tell she read my notes. She got the high chair right away. They had the nice chair I liked which is compact and hangs off the table. She installed it and made sure it was secure. Let me double check smiles when I was happy and left. Seconds after that Ethan our waiter was with us. He was funny and attentive with all of us especially the baby. Orders came out quickly, hot and correct. Ethan even helped distract my baby with his toy in order for me to take a way a plate a way from him. Food & drinks were amazing! Great experience! We will definitely be back!

Food was at ok, nothing impressive.
I just didn’t like the fact that there was no wet tissues, BBQ places should always have wet tissues just like seafood places.
Overall ok for everyday eating.

Morgan's BBQ is a nice place with great picnic tables and cool indoor seating. It has nice drinks and a diverse menu including bbq, Mac n cheese, tacos, fried chicken and sandwiches. The brisket rub is too salty probably double what is needed. The rib rub is a bit sooty, powdery & earthy in taste and texture. The potato salad is strange and not my cup of tea, a bit orange in color due to seasonings. The collards were fine, not great in seasoning (not sweet, salty or complex). The cornbread is cake like, but more dense in texture not fluffy.

I liked the frito pie. It had a good ratio of chili to chips plus spicy. The lettuce and cheese cooled it all down, too.

The sweet tea drink (Texas Two Step, i think) was the best. Great tea first, then a great balance of bourbon not overpowering.

The best for last, the key lime pie for 2. They nailed it, so good!
All in all I liked the place and found enough to eat.

Great food! My wife and I sat outside on a beautful, sunny saturday afternoon. This part of Brooklyn is gorgeous and i wouldnt want to sit inside. The staff was very nice, however, the waitress didnt bring our drinks until after we got our food. I would recommend eating here because of the location alone. Try the candied bacon, or the catfish tacos, both are delicious!

Loved Morgan's BBQ Brooklyn. Servers were attentive and friendly. We ate outdoors with our dog Junior, who was very happy to be in a dog friendly environment. The food was tasty and served at the right temperature. Delicious food, relaxed atmosphere. I will definitely be a repeat customer!
