10458 Travel Guide
Discerning BBQ fiends know that NYC's best ribs and pulled pork are found far from the trendy new high-end BBQ joints in Manhattan. The best, they know, are at Mo Gridder's, the eatery-on-wheels that has long had foodies trekking to Hunts Point in the Bronx.
Good news: The often hard-to-find BBQ truck has quietly opened up a permanent location in the Belmont neighborhood to complement its truck service. Well, "real restaurant" might be a bit of an exaggeration, as it's more of a trailer park and picnic tables setup, but it's at least permanent.
You won't spot the celebs that frequent those downtown hot spots, but if you're willing to make the trip, Mo Gridder's is about as authentic BBQ as you'll find this side of the Mason-Dixon.
