“Fantastic.....go get great BBQ!”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

New digs and great BBQ! the salad is super with homemade smoked dressing...get it! The mac & cheese is deadly and not to be missed. All the meat is smoked and cooked to perfection. The sauce is unique and you should take a bottle home with you.

“Tasty Barbecue”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

If in town and you love barbecue, The Joint is the place to be! The barbecue is to die for and its convenient location (outside of the hustle and bustle of The French Quarters) makes easy parking. The prices are wonderful. My family (husband, I and my two adult hungry sons) dine easily under $55.00 with usually leftovers. There are not many places in the New Orleans area where you can actually get real barbecue, but I am satisifed just having The Joint availab.e.

“Not the greatest”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

The restaurant atmosphere is far from the best it's very small a congested. The service was ok. The food is priced very high for for what you get. It not the best tasting BBQ. I've done better myself.

“New but the same!”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

They have moved to a new location just a few blocks from the old place, but managed to maintain their rustic charm while expanding the size of the sit down indoor service area as well as a nice outdoor patio dining area. Food and menu have not changed - great selection, with the same tender, juicy cuts of meat to excite the taste buds. A must try...again and again.

“Excellent BBQ and very good prices”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

In first returning to New Orleans on our fourth visit, we decided to partake in typical Cajun cuisine at one of the "name" restaurants. We had very tasty food, were glad we had gone there, but were taken aback at the $133 tab for dinner for two.

Tonight, our third night, we decided to look for a highly-rated restaurant online. The name of The Joint came up with high ratings, a southern BBQ cuisine, and an interesting on-line menu. While a bit distant from our hotel in the French Quarter - it was easy to find by car. Actually just a couple of turns for the six miles or so.

We were greatly pleased with The Joint. It's location is in suburban residential area near the Mississippi, A working class neighborhood, but very well kept and friendly.

The food is simple fare. Order at the counter and it's brought to your table, But it was superb food, and plentiful. Between us two we had BBQ chicken, pulled pork and brisket. Sides of potato salad, coleslaw, baked beans. An Abita to wash it down. Mouth-watering fare.

The clientele was a healthy mix of nearby locals, N.O. residents, and travelers like us. A bit eclectic - but that's nice.

I would whole-heartedly recommend The Joint for an excellent meal, friendly atmosphere and good prices. You could eat here six times for what we'd paid at a name French Quarter restaurant. The food quality was comparable. Quantity greater.
