Stopped here on a recent jaunt through the Big Easy. It's a little off the beaten path and located in a mostly residential area, The Joint is a small BBQ joint on the corner with big taste. I had the brisket plate with beans and...More

Hands down, my favorite local BBQ joint! Their meat is smoky, flavorful, and not at all dry. They come with delicious sauces to put on top your meal as well. Only downfall is that the sides are nothing to write home about, macaroni is just...More

It's just so good! I had the pulled pork and it was melt in your mouth good! Husband had ribs and brisket and they too were so tender! The sides were all delicious. It's a small little joint with huge flavor and huge servings.

Yes. Yes to all of it. The outside of this place is awesome... looks like any of the places I used to visit on the corner near my childhood home. You step inside and it's mellow and very basic, but amazing. We were handed menus...More

Ok from the outside it's not much to look at, and it's kinda small inside, but it's got a huge patio, the location is great, and the ribs were an honor to the southern bbq tradition. It really is a joint, we ordered beer at...More

Best ribs ever - from an ex-Chicagoan. Nice people. Interesting neighborhood. The opposite of a tourist trap.

Went here on a recommendation. I ordered two meat (beef brisket/sausage) and two sides (salad/mac and cheese). The mac and cheese was hardly warm and the restaurant was freezing cold. The portions were good for the price but there was a lot of fat to...More

Being a vegetarian, I write this review on my wife's behalf (although I'll admit the place smells amazing) Every time we visit New Orleans, she insists we visit. Likewise, whenever we take friends to town, we are sure to bring them to this lowkey, casual...More

This came highly recommended and we sought it out for our first meal in New Orleans. We tried the beef brisket and beef burnt ends. The brisket was plain, a little dry and unremarkable. The burnt ends were so doused with sauce that I cannot...More

Visited on a food tour. The ribs were incredible. It is a small place so an off- peak visit is likely best.

Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward,
the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely
residential. Of course, folks around here love to go
out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere
in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the
festivities, well then so much the better! Home to
some of the most revered live music venues in New
Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining

No reservations, but I'll concur they're not ever needed. One thing that I will add is that the locals swarm to this place, so it gets more crowded over lunch or right at the end of the workday. You can avoid the... More
