Every Southerner in NYC Should Know About..

...Brother Jimmy's!  A friend of ours told us about this legendary barbeque restaurant before we even moved up to New York.  Once you step inside you truly forget that you are north of the Mason-Dixon line.  They offer southern-style BBQ with down-home trimmings like macaroni and cheese and sweet potato casserole and of course, sweet tea!  One thing that made me truly respect Brother Jimmy's is that they distinguish between North Carolina BBQ and South Carolina BBQ...I was very impressed!

Not only is it a great place to eat barbeque and drink sweet tea, but it is a great place to watch college football games.  There are numerous TVs throughout the restaurant and Brother Jimmy's claims to be the place to watch ACC sports.  The walls are also covered with ACC school banners and posters.

Brother Jimmy's definitely provides an exciting atmosphere to watch your ACC team play.  However, I will say that when we went to watch the Clemson game last weekend, it was disappointing to not have sound.  There were so many games on that they just had music playing instead of turning up any of the TVs.  So, if you're a dedicated fan you might want to go to a bar that is only playing your team's game...and I will post about those places to go very soon!

However, in the meantime, I highly recommend that you check out Brother Jimmy's and, as they say "put some south in yo' mouth!"  There are several locations in Manhattan and they can all be found on their website along with the menu!
