Gone several times for lunch. Food has always been excellent. Sometimes food takes a bit to come out, but can't argue with the results. Serg the bartender was also very personable and friendly. More...

Eating here made me depressed that I've been living without this for thirty some odd years. I've been living a dirty, dirty lie.

Very small homey feeling tavern located about 10 minutes away from Palisades Center. We've been here several times and have yet to be disappointed. I first found this place on Groupon and decided to give it a try. Prices are reasonable and portions are generous. I would recommend the baked beans as a side. More...

Had the wings and pulled pork. Both were very well made. Restaurant side is extremely quiet. Across the wall is the bar side which seems to be an older crowd/townie kinda bar. Only 2 points that make this not 5 stars. As people have mentioned, very understaffed. One lady waitressing, food running, seating, and bussing. Definitely not enough, especially considering how busy they always seem. Finally, for a bbq place, I just wish they had some real steak selections on the menu. More...

The barbeque ribs were ok, but the pulled chicken, pulled pork and brisket were dry and did not taste like much. The steamed broccoli was completely tasteless. We were disappointed of the food. Service was ok. More...

This was such a treat. We decided to go out on a whim and after passing this place like a thousand times, we decided to go in.  So glad we did.  The waitress was a doll. The food was so tasty. I had the pulled pork platter- yum. Tender and juicy- not grizzly fat. The waitress treated us to a dish of zeppolis, which were sugary dough heaven. I really recommend this place. More...

This place is a hidden gem with SUCH good food and the staff are incredibly attentive!The chef, Paul, works incredibly hard to provide great food and you can tell that he not only knows how to cook well, he's really passionate about making *great* food. There are WAY too many things on the menu to pick just one favorite item - the wings are phenomenal (and $0.70 on Thursday nights!), the brisket and the ribs are to die for, and the desserts will make anyone have a sweet tooth. This place deserves more than the 5 stars I can give! More...

This place is extremely underrated. The quality of the food far surpasses that of other more recognized BBQ joints in Rockland County. Their wings range from tasty and simple to fun and creative. Their flavor combos are phenomenal. The staff is friendly and fun. Sam and Stefania are diamonds in the rough. You will not be disappointed with this place. Awesome spot. Especially on Thursday nights where those wings are $.70! More...

Although it looks quiet and unassuming from the outside, in my opinion this is one of the best casual restaurants in Rockland. The food quality is consistently excellent, and their barbecue is top-notch. The fried pickles are easily the best I've had anywhere. They also offer impressively large wings and a great selection of sauces. I even love their garden pizza -- and I'm not a person who normally likes garden pizza. More...

Tonight Brookside lost our business. The biggest issue besides our party of seven not being served at the same time was that my the egg was uncooked and the chicken was too rubbery to chew. I returned the salad and asked for the salad to be removed from the bill. They refused! Their excuse was that I was offered something in its place, and since I declined that offer, I had to pay for the inedible salad. We took our family there at least once a month, so for the price of a salad, they lost our business for good. More...

It's one of those places that you don't judge a book by its cover. You have to dive into it. Glad Rockland has a place like this for us to enjoy More...

I recently ordered takeout from brookside and was pleasantly surprised. The burger was cooked perfectly which is a rarity for takeout and the fries were delicious. I had to wait a little bit to pick up my takeout order but it was mainly because the restaurant was busy on a Saturday night. Can't wait to try some of the barbecue, my son had chicken tenders which were awesome! More...

This is definitely the best place to get BBQ in Rockland! I was a bit confused by the building though because I was originally looking for Hocus Smokus, which is the same place apparently. Either way, they don't disappoint. Their food is as authentic as BBQ gets, and I'm glad my family and I went to their stand at the Nanuet Fair this year. My hubs insists that the cup of mashed/beans/pulled pork they sell at the event should be a part of the regular menu! More...

Came here on Friday and decided to order some BBQ. I ordered the 4 horsemen with Mac and cheese, loaded mashed potatoes, and corn souffle. I then ordered 10 wings I believe it was bbq flavored. So regarding the 4 horsemen it included brisket, pork, chicken and half a rack of the ribs. The pork was a bit dry and needed a sauce. The brisket  and chicken was really good, definitely had a nice smokey taste to it. The brisket had nice burnt ends which was really nice to have. The ribs needed more sauce but it tasted too sweet. The meat was cooked very well but I think I would have chosen a different sauce for the ribs as well as having some sauce to go. The Mac and cheese was nothing to be impressed about, the loaded mashed potatoes was really good definitely had bacon with cheese. I would say the corn souffle was the best I've had so far in rockland, I just wish we had more of that then the Mac and cheese. With the wings I must say they were not cheap on the size of those wings. Man the wings were on point, but one thing I must say is don't skimp on the sauce for wings. Cover those damn wings with some sauce. That was my issue with this place is not having enough sauce on the wings and not being able to give your customers an option to have some sauce to go. Overall I will come again but this time I think I would have a better experience to dine in then taking out. More...

Do you like ribs that fall off the bone, no knife necessary?  Giant chicken wings in a variety of sauces and dry rubs?  Friendly service and great prices?  If you answered yes to any of the above do yourself a favor and check out BROOKSIDE TAVERN AND SMOKEHOUSE!!  With lots of mediocre BBQ popping up all over the place, this place is a hidden gem.   The ribs are infused with wood smoke and love to make them cooked to perfection.  They have that perfect sauce to rub ratio, evidence of bbq mastery.  I also truly enjoyed the Parmesan hot wings, they were saucy and savory with the right amount of spice.  It is a always a win when the highlight of a meal is a side dish.  And in this case the Burnt Ends Baked Beans were just that true BBQ Gold.I will be back for both rib and wing night.  Definite 5 stars.

I can't wait to go back and try their pizza!! I was able to talk to the chef, unlike other chefs, his philosophy is "if we have the ingredients, we will make it for you". Very accommodating. Give it a shot you won't be disappointed!! More...

This is some damn good BBQ.  I had their BBQ dip (a spin off a french dip...  So basically a "Murica dip"... yeah!).  The kicker was the garlic bread it came served on.  That was a sucker punch of flavor!  Their fries are something special too.  I'm not even a "fry guy" but I inhaled these like it was my last meal.  They come out pipin hot so be sure to take your time and not rush it like your prom date. I've sent a few people here including friends from out of town.  All very satisfied customers.  Been here mostly at lunch time and the quality has been on point every time.  Hard to find consistency like that nowadays.  You won't be disappointed.  Unless you got stood up on your prom date... then this review may have just brought up a rough past.  Bro hugs.
