If want to eat some BBQ, day drink with a group, watch sports on TV, or all of the above, go to Queens Bully. This BBQ spot on Queens Boulevard is one of the best places in Forest Hills to spend a few hours on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon, when the long bar and communal tables are filled with people sharing wings and baby back ribs while watching football on the big screens. The meats, like the nicely spiced smoked chicken and the brisket with thick bark, come with your choice of slaw or potato salad. Get the potato salad, and an extra side of BBQ sauce for dipping.

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.
