One order of marinated kalbi at Mapo - a Korean BBQ spot in Flushing costs about $35, but you’re not just getting a plate of grilled meat. Each portion, which is grilled for you in the middle of the table, includes enough sweet and smoky meat for two people. It also comes with more than 10 types of banchan, from dried squid to sweet potato noodles, and as much rice as you want, all of which helps balance out the inexpensive bottles of soju and Korean beer.

John Brown Smokehouse
While we enjoyed our time with John Brown Smokehouse, we didn’t quite go crazy over the BBQ the way others have. Though if you and your crew appreciate trays full of BBQ and massive bootfuls of beer, John Brown should be on the radar.
Fletcher's Brooklyn BBQ
Fletcher's serves up some great pulled pork, and is a solid local BBQ stop if you're around Gowanus. We just wouldn't travel for it.
Berg'n is a big indoor beer garden/food court from the people who brought you Smorgasburg. It's good for groups, and they have full bar.
