When did you expect to find good barbecue in Montauk? That's right: when pigs fly.
Well, there's pork in the treetops. "Montauk's BBQ Shack," formally known as, yes, When Pigs Fly, answers the question and satisfies the appetite. And, as if to underscore the location, here's a barbecue spot that also prepares an excellent lobster roll.
You order at the counter, for takeout or to indulge at a few alfresco benches. Either way, you win.
In addition to that ample, well-seasoned lobster roll, sample the vinegary pulled pork, moist beef brisket and, if you insist, the Philly cheesesteak sandwich. They all go with the horseradish pickles and the French fries. When Pigs Fly also offers tacos and wraps, nachos and chili, Buffalo-style chicken wings and Sabrett hot dogs, baby back ribs and barbecued chicken.
Get ready for a beach party.
