Located seemingly on the outskirts of nowhere New Orleans, The Joint is a must visit for anyone interested in good BBQ. A popular haunt of locals and tourists with a GPS (you need the GPS), expect to meet with lines of hungry customers. Fortunately, the...More

We were super excited to have our first BBQ experience in The South and to be honest I found this place left me a bit flat. Not sure why, maybe I'm used to more sauce on my BBQ but while the ribs were still super...More

After this experience, I will never find another barbecue place quite as fantastic as this one. My family and I ate here on our last day in New Orleans, which made me even more upset because I was leaving this amazing place. The meat was...More

This place is great--tucked away--clearly a place locals come to but it gets rave reviews--because it is so good. Our group tried all different platters and I tasted most everything--this place alone is worth a return to to New Orleans

This is real barbecue. The tenderest and most flavorful ribs I've ever had. Half rack is 6 meaty, good size ribs. Mac and cheese and the baked beans are great choices for sides. Order at the counter then they bring the savory pork to your...More

A small restaurant located in the Bywater on Royal. Very small with limited seating, usually crowded and noisy, but it's a local and friendly crowd and the food is unreal - best BBQ in the city. Desert portions kind of small, maybe not worth the...More

We love this consistently great BBQ spot. The ribs are scrumptious and others enjoyed the pulled pork sandwich. the sides are delish and they have a creative drink menu as well as a good selection of standbys. The service is casual and swift and prices...More

Normally I don't make an extended detour to try BBQ in places I am unfamiliar with, but I was glad to try The Joint BBQ. It has character like other good New Orleans restaurants. It is tucked back in a neighborhood area off of a...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
