There’s nothing quite like a summer cookout on the beautiful East End. If Memorial Day Weekend whet your appetite for barbecue but left you exhausted, this week is a great time to check out our Dan’s Best of the Best Hamptons Barbecue Restaurant winners.

Smokin’ Wolf BBQ & More
199 Pantigo Road, East Hampton

Smokin’ Wolf BBQ & More has all the makings of a classic barbecue spot: red checkered tablecloths, brisket, and ribs. However, they also offer lighter and more adventurous options like fish tacos and a Thai chicken wrap.

New Moon Café
524 Montauk Highway, East Quogue

New Moon’s whimsically written menu offers everything from barbecue staples to fresh seafood appetizers and options for kids. You can even grab a Bloody Mary and breakfast on weekends.

78 Foster Restaurant & Bar
78 Foster Avenue, Hampton Bays

This Hampton Bays gem combines cajun flavors and upscale ambiance. With a full bar, outdoor seating and daily specials like lobster and bingo nights, the voters had it right!

Townline BBQ
3593 Montauk Highway, Sagaponack

Townline BBQ serves up delicious, antibiotic-and-hormone-free barbecue classics in a contemporary yet rustic setting in Sagaponack. Wash down your meal with one of the seven local beers on tap!
