My wife and I really enjoy visiting New Orleans and have spent the last 4 Summer vacations there for the Satchmo Jazz Festival. On our first visit to NOLA, we went to The Joint because of seeing it on TV. Wow! Every year, a visit...More

Awesome venue, very cool & understated. Nice selection of local beers on tap, excellent service...and the food!! Brisket plate & rib plates were amazing, just what it should be for low & slow BBQ. Their sides are fantastic too. Bit expensive & a $30 round...More

NOLA is known to have amazing food, but has not been well known for BBQ. After living in KC prior to moving to NOLA, I've been looking for good BBQ. While this unfortunately does not compare to what can be found in Kansas City, it...More

The BBQ at The Joint is on par with some of the best I've had in Texas. Their sides are delicious, also. And be sure to check out what their frozen cocktail du jour is, because it is almost always exactly what you need.

Ok, fish all week in NOLA and needed some nice BBQ, especially after the disaster BBQ in Pittsburg during my last visit. The Joint is the highest rated BBQ joint in NOLA so I figure, give it a try. Well, a hole in the wall...More

What a brilliant place to enjoy fantastic food. The inside of this out of the way eatery is decorated in a variety of eccentric posters/pictures that are all fitting of The Joint. The food is brought out quickly & just as well as the mouth...More

The food is simply amazing. My pulled pork sandwich was everything I wanted & more. The mac and cheese is rich, flavorful, and satisfying. There is street parking all around the restaurant, but if you need to park close you might be taking a risk...More

This is a somewhat different location. You order your food, pay for it, find a place to sit (hopefully there is something available because it was packed when we went there) then wait for them to bring you food. The food is delicious! There are...More

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
