This place is accessible via streetcar and has predictable barbecue fare. It's bright, clean, with good service. The real stars are the sides! The potato salad and coleslaw are great. My absolute favorite is the corn pudding. I always order two!!More

Great little BBQ joint. We were travelling the tram up St Charles avenue looking at all the houses when we got off the train I spotted this place. Food was awesome and the staff there a very hard case.

I wasn't impressed with the chicken I ordered. It was rather dry. However, the sides were really good. The potato salad was delicious and unique. The workers were friendly as well. Also, the prices weren't too bad for the area.

Very good food in a casual, friendly atmosphere. We went for a late lunch and were the only customers at 2pm on a Monday.

We were just looking for something near our hotel and barbecue sounded like a good idea. We had pulled pork, smoked chicken, jambalaya, gumbo, corn bread. The meats were amazing, so good no need to even add the sauce. We later had the brownie because...More

Gotta try the corn pudding and beans. In house specialties done right with other options on the menu that are traditional Louisiana favorites. Gumbo for an app was pretty decent and the pulled pork/ chicken combo plate was very tender and juicy. Their BBQ sauces...More

I only saw the one room in the front for eating. There's a hallway on the side that I believe leads to the restrooms. I don't know if there's a room in the back or not.

Located right off the St. Charles streetcar line in the beautiful historic Garden District is the flagship location of VooDoo BBQ & Grill.

Life’s too short for lousy BBQ. That’s why we craft New Orleans BBQ dishes that feed your soul. Like a Pulled Pork Sandwich worthy of your mom, and meat platters that have been known to elicit epiphanies. That’s what happens when you dry rub meat with Caribbean, Cajun, and Creole spices, then slow smoke it with oak and pecan.
