What type of Bar-B-Que do you serve?

We serve Brooklyn style barbecue. We apply authentic southern cooking techniques and use only wood to cook. After the smoking process, we manipulate flavors to create dishes that represent the flavor profiles found in the diverse, multicultural city of Brooklyn. Some examples include our Vietnamese Wings, Caribbean Jerk Baby Back Ribs, Lamb Belly Banh Mi, Oaxacan-Style Tacos and Fried Korean Sticky Ribs.


How long is the wait?

While the line can be intimidating, we hope it can also be welcoming. At our busiest times, the line can take 45–60 minutes, but the wait for pit-smoked barbecue is part of the culture and experience we hope you'll enjoy at Hometown. It's our goal to keep you informed and occupied while you wait, so grab a drink from the bar or from a server and make the line worth it. We ensure that you get fresh cut-to-order meats and our carvers and cashiers are there to guide you through any questions you have.

Where do you get your meat?

How much Food do you recommend ordering per person?

The carvers and cashiers can help with quantities when ordering. We do not offer platters, samplers or combo plates, but we do recommend dining in groups and ordering a la carte from the menu to get a variety of items to your liking.
