$$$$Perfect For:Big Groups

Horse Thief is a place that always seems to have a crowd in front of it - largely thanks to its prime Grand Central Market location. But if you wait out the lines, you’ll be treated to some delicious grilled meats. This is Texas-style BBQ, so the star here is the 18-hour smoked brisket, but their Carolina pulled pork and beer brined half chicken should also find their way onto your order as well. Plus, their fantastic front patio is a great place to order a few rounds of ice cold beer and decompress after braving GCM on a Saturday.
