Great out of the way BBQ stop. Looks like a favorite of the locals. Ribs were very good as well as the brisket. Homemade pies made for a delicious dessert.

I know people say these are the best ribs ever, but these are the best ribs ever. Smoke and crust and flavor is perfect. No sauce needed. Walk, drive or run. If you are ever in New Orleans, the Joint is the place.

The price is great. We had a 3 meat/ 2 sides plate and shared. Burnt ends , beans and potato salad were killer. Ribs were pretty good. Chicken was good but not as good as I had hoped.

This place is great - you walk in and proceed to the counter to order. I typically go to the bar and order - I love the Bloody Mary with okra and olives. I don’t eat red meat so I always get the chicken. Our...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

Definitely use Uber. There's a very active and pleasant Uber community in the area, we used it extensively while we were in town. The drivers were all great and had good recommendations on places to go locally, and I think... More
