Fette Sau BBQ

Okay, some of you may scream loudly that I'm very late to the party, but a certain eG pal of mine just called to ask if I've ever heard of Fette Sau, and I must admit that I hadn't; and neither had he.

With all of the reading I do here and elsewhere, I'm wondering how it slipped under the radar. It's obviously been around for a couple of years already.

There are quite a few mentions of Fette Sau around the forums, but perhaps no dedicated topic. I'm not of the opinion that it's a destination-worthy place. I visited almost exactly a year ago when I was doing the rounds for a barbecue story for Crain's, and I thought it was a good place to have in the neighborhood, if I lived in the neighborhood, which I don't. Sort of a light version of Hill Country.

The boyfriend and I are in the area pretty often to go to beer events at Barcade or Sputyen Duyvil, and it seems that our group always ends up at Fette Sau. The food (at least the meat) is very good. I still remember the first time I had the ribs. The sides I'm less crazy about. The beans are good, pickles are good, but I don't like my broccoli overcooked and I'm not a potato salad person (especially when it's got a ton of mustard on it).

ETA: I forgot to mention that they do whiskey flights that are a pretty good deal.
