The food here is awesome! We had a tough time choosing our meals, since the entire menu sounds amazing. The ribs and brisket are some of the best I've ever had! The staff here are super friendly. We asked where we could get a cab...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!

Three of us visiting my sister in New Orleans, she took us to The Joint for dinner one evening. We were skeptical of BBQ in New Orleans, but after getting our delicious food, our fears were put to rest. Tender chicken, fall-apart brisket, best southern...More

Amazing brisket and key lime pie. The sides leave a little room for improvement and the tea was awful

BBQ is great. But the sides are different but really good too. Casual relaxed dining. Parking can be tight but it’s worth the ride and hunting parking. We had the sampler platter and split it. Glad we did it was a lot of food

Quaint little place not too far from French Quarter. Our Lyft Driver recommended it and we are glad we tried it. Was packed with locals eating lunch while we were there. Be sure to check out the big meat smokers out back by the restrooms....More

Not creole, not fancy and not in the French Quarter...... but a great restaurant in New Orleans. If you have a taste for bbq and don't mind a short drive from the French Quarter, this is the place to go. A neighborhood gem restaurant (another...More

Really great bbq. A unique business model, the customer does everything, oders, gets their own drinks, fetches their own booze and to-go boxes. All staff does is take your money and yell your name. Great size of tasty brisket for me and my wife had...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
