Food was good, but honestly had better BBQ. They ran out of brisket. Was in a great location for walking from our BB. Would try it again, but was disappointed by all the hype.

We had driven 5 hours from Panama City Beach, FL for the weekend, and this was going to be our first stop. I'd researched "Best BBQ places in Nola" on Google, and this place kept appearing. Their volume of reviews, and consistently high rating made...More

This might just be the best barbecue I have ever had the pleasure of eating. Ever. I order the pulled pork, with a piece of toast, baked beans, and corn grits. It looks like a bit of a hole-in-the-wall and was featured on the show...More

This place has the best brisket that I have ever tasted!!! The side of the day was smoked grits. I have never had grits prepared that way, but they were delicious!!! We thoroughly enjoyed our meal!

We needed to take a break from all of New Orleans's fantastic sea food. Every one said to try out The Joint. Way cool looking interior and decor. Nice outdoor seating also. Take a look at the huge smoker in back. We tried a sampling...More

Saw this place on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives and had to check it out! Cool building with awesome outdoor alley seating or indoor seating. Got a combo with brisket, pulled pork, and ribs. The ribs were so juicy and fall off the bone tender and...More

Grew up eating Texas bbq so we had to try this place out! The brisket sandwich was heavenly and my brother's pulled pork sammie reminded him of mom's pot roast. Definitely a must in New Orleans!!!!

The Joint is eclectic to be sure. The food is excellent. I had a W, which was brisket (best I ever had), along with pulled pork and 2 ribs, plus 2 sides. It was excellent. Do not sit down before you order your food, or...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

I don't think so! Sorry!
Since we don't rent a car when we come to N. Orleans. How do you get here? Anyone know if there is a bus stop near?
