The food tastes good and the prices even better. Do not expect 5 star here if your looking for gourmet cuisine, because you won't find it here! Its a place you can dress down for, bring friends or family and enjoy a meal and not have to take out a small loan to pay for it! Order the BBQ chicken without sauce and use the sauce on the table, its the same they use on the chicken! HINT HINT!! My hub loves the honey basted for just a $1.00 more. Portions are huge, there will be leftovers if your not a big eater; not that we need bigger portions in America! ha ha...still, one of the places you can go if your on a tight budget!!! Food is served fast and hot, as it should be!
I just moved into the area and was looking for a great barbecue place when a friend told me about Harley's. I decided to go there with a bunch of friends after work to try it out and I wasn't disappointed! I wasn't expecting the quality of the barbecue that they presented me with and was pleasantly surprised. I come from the south, an area that specializes in fantastic barbecue foods, so I have really high standards. They met them! It was a really relaxed atmosphere, I felt right at home and the prices are very reasonable. I plan on continuing to go there on a regular basis.
Took my friend there for dinner one night and we had a really good time. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive, something I look for when I go to a restaurant. It was really busy, so I almost expected the staff to not have the time to pay close attention to us, but they definitely did. On top of all of that, the food was great. I had the smoked prime rib and my fiancee had the grilled chicken club and we were both very satisfied. I can't decide if the smokey flavor of my ribs were my favorite or those delicious greens were. Very delicious.
My company has held several parties at Harley's Smokeshack, and we were very pleased with the level of service that was provided. Harley's has the perfect setting for special events. We had exclusive use of the upstairs lounge, which included a full bar and pool table. My employees are still talking about how delicious all of the food was. The Harley's cooking staff created a buffet that included a tasty array of appetizers and BBQ favorites. All of the servers were friendly and smiling, and they worked hard to make sure that we had a great evening.
i was craving some southern comfort food and bbq the other day. NYC doesn't have very many choices but after reading the many positive reviews online about this place, we decided to try it out. Being raised in the south (Georgia) upon consuming the Two Meat Sampler I was sold on the food! My friends and I shared pulled pork and BBQ chicken with homemade slaw and creamed corn as accompanying sides. We liked the reasonable prices and large portions. Try their margaritas!
That is the first thing the waitress said to my Love and me...and she sure was right. Usually I have to finish what my love can't...well this time I was full on my own meal. We thought the food was very good...at least a bit better than what we expect from a place in Times Square. We would definitely go there again. After reading the last review...i really wanna check out the Famous Dave's in Long Island...it has to be even better!
Great BBQ in Harlem. The ribs are tasty although dry at times. (If you get dry ribs, make sure to send them back and they'll take care of you. ) Some of the side items are a bit bland for my taste but that's what condiments are for, I'd rather recieve bland food and be able to doctor it up, rather than over saturated foods and left stuck. Overall the food is pretty good for BBQ and the prices aren't too bad either.
I like their flavors however this place is too expensive for the food to be hit & miss. I've ordered the Drunken shrimp and the shrimp were overcooked & vowed never to get them again. Another time I got a rack of ribs that were like beef jerky. I ordered again & they were fine & my friend got a great order of the drunken shrimp another time. I only wish they were consistent.
I visit Harley’s Smokeshack at least twice a week on my lunch break and have never been disappointed. I usually order the Boneless Buffalo Chicken Wings, Cajun Pork Loin Sandwich, or Caesar Chicken Wrap on the combination lunch menu. When Im feeling like a cheat day, I order Layered Chocolate Cake or Deep Fried Oreos which are also delish. .
They're hot. At least the ones I saw earlier tonight... Hopefully the food will taste as great as the servers look. I didn't actually get to eat there because my friends were hungry and there was a bit of a wait. This rating is solely based on how kind the hostess(es) were. I'm going back on Sunday.
