Fort Reno BBQ
BBQ joint in Gowanus helmed by a Collichio protege.
What We Had
Brisket – This was the best of the bunch. Flavorful, tender and delicious.
Pulled pork – Decent. Flavor didn’t fully penetrate & it was a hair dry, but still good.
Collards – I absolutely loved.
Mac & cheese – Also pretty great.
Biscuit – Not the best in the world, but satisfying and worthy.
Metal & old wood decor with lots of mason and jelly jars. Rock anthems over the speakers lend an all-American vibe.
Order at the counter service, with separate bar.
This tiny place (seating for maybe 20) is pretty good. Not as good meat as its neighbor Fletcher’s, but better sides.
4 out of 5 for solid taste, but second best meat (by a hair) in the neighborhood
