Hmmm... Wasn't there a BBQ joint in this same spot years ago? Noticed that they are not posting their prices on either the MQ website or menupages. Guess we'll have to wait for the Yuck Felp crowd to gear up.

The best place EVER at this location was 103 2nd Avenue...when the Fillmore East was still open. I used to eat there every night. I believe it was run by Yagi, the guy who now owns most Japanese restaurants on 10th Street. PS: Just my own personal opinion. I have no foodie credentials.

Re: Mighty Quinn's: The giant room-sized meat smoker has serious ventilation problems. We live in the building and our apartments & hallways reek of barbecue, all the way to the top floor- it's coming up through the radiators,walls & floors. Additionally, the ventilation system on the roof is going 24/7 & sounds like a jet plane idling. I'm sure everyone on the block can hear it. It's quite intrusive. The Health Dept. is coming to check it out. We're distressed! There's a reason smokehouses are located down country roads- they stink up the place, even if the food is delicious...
