We heard about this hole-in-the wall from a fellow in the mall during our previous vacation in New Orleans. Some of the best eating in the city--whether brisket or pulled pork. Awesome potato salad and peanut butter pie. We did take an Uber to and...More

Traditional BBQ. The way it was supposed to be done. Good "meatatarian" menu. Ribs tender and delicious. Brisket same. Chicken was probably the least interesting on the three meat plate. Neighbourhood looks a bit sketchy in places but this is a spot well worth a...More

We ate here twice while we were staying in the Bywater. Off the charts BBQ, seriously delicious sides including mac and cheese, beans, coleslaw. You will not be disappointed if you like classic BBQ. Prices were super decent as well.

Great ribs, brisket and sausage. Meat is very moist and has great flavor. Ate there twice and had them cater a business group of 30 people.

The Joint was part of the Confederacy of Cruisers food bicycle tour we were on. Ribs and barbecued brisket were outstanding. Super tender, great smoke flavour and saucy. Beans with smoked meat also amazing. Secret ingredients in the beans are the smoked pork fat and...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
