Newark BBQ ranks 9th best in country, best in Northeast

Newark boasts both quality and quantity with its barbecue: The 17 resident BBQ joints enjoy a 4.18 star Trip Advisor rating overall, making it the ninth best city for it in the country.

Newark outranked all other Northeast cities. Across the river, New York City ranks 31 with more than quadruple the restaurants.

International food magazine Chef’s Pencil analyzed TripAdvisor ratings of all the barbecue joints in the nation’s top 75 largest cities, and then ranked the cities based on their average rating.

Northeast cities that didn’t shine in Chef’s Pencil’s analysis were Boston and Philadelphia, which garnered 3.82 and 3.93 stars out of five, respectively.
