Hometown Bar-B-Que serves the best food in Industry City. But that shouldn’t be a surprise, because the original Hometown Bar-B-Que in Red Hook makes the best barbecue in the city. The Industry City space is actually pretty similar to the original (big tables, oversized flag on the wall, etc), but there are a few things here you can’t get in Red Hook. An al pastor taco with big chunks of pork and pineapple on a fluffy tortilla, for example, as well as a sandwich with thick slices of slightly smokey and improbably tender pastrami. Order both of these things, and a brisket sandwich for good measure.
