We visited the Joint on a weeknight with friends from NOLA. BBQ is not a big thing in New Orleans but the Joint appears to represent the south and did not disappoint. Great ambience, good beers and excellent BBQ. We had ribs and brisket- both...More

I love coming here. The food, ambience, staff. I can bring my pups. What is not to love? The outdoor patio is the best.

I was lucky enough to be able to grab a smoked pork sandwich at the Blues and Brews fest made by the Joint. The meat was tender and the slaw was fantastic! Can't beat great food and music!

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
