Billing themselves, “The Big Taste of Texas in a New York Minute”, Texas Rotisserie and Grill serves up top quality BBQ fast food at fair prices. There is a great deal of debate surrounding what is the most authentic BBQ joint in NYC. There really isn’t an agreed upon destination, but one thing is for sure…this place delivers the comfort food using fresh and not overly fatty ingredients. Sure they are a local chain and closely approximate what Boston Market sells but this is where the similarities end. Their cornbread is really a corn muffin, not pasty in the least with a real pieces of corn enhancing the flavor. Their mac and cheese is very creamy but in a good way….not salty and overly yellow. You’ll see chickens roasting in a huge rotisserie behind the counter but the fried chicken is to die for…crisp and not the least bit greasy! Charcoal flame grilled hamburgers, fall-off-the bone rotisserie chicken, and wicked hot buffalo wings round out the major entrees.
Don’t miss out on their pot pies baked in sweet potato crust and their steak and philly beef sandwiches loaded with succulent caramelized onions and rich steak sauce. From their selection of 34 sides, I highly recommend their fried okra, real (not powdered) mashed potatoes, and their sweet plantain. Genuinely finger lickin’ good without the propaganda!
