We all know that finding quality barbecue in NYC is like searching for a small ass needle in a haystack. Mighty Quinn’s has proven to city-goers that they are the spot with the golden ticket. Be prepared to take an adventure with some of the most savory meats and flavorful sides in a setting that bleeds a soulful, southern feel unlike anywhere else in the city.  To make the experience even better, it is the first authentic barbecue spot in a fast-casual environment. That being said, you can grab a filling plate of their tender, smoked brisket and frites quickly on your lunch break if you’re having an uncontrollable craving for Texalina Barbeque.—Cedric Hall
