BBQ near Penn Station

Hi,

I'm going through NYC, from Canada, for a 2.5 hour stopover at Penn Station. I've been watching a lot Food Network lately and am very interested in the whole Smoked Brisket idea, which I have never tried. I also like pulled pork sandwiches but have only had a chance to try it in Canada and a Hard Rock Cafe in Asia. So I'm looking for a combo plate or sandwich. Based on Google maps, it seems the closest options are:

Spanky's
Virgil's
Rub BBQ

Of these three, which would you recommend? And is there anything better but just as close that is off Google's radar. I don't mind dirty hole-in-the-wall type places.

One more question, all the plates seems to come with one or 2 sides. What sides are recommended?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
