Great BBQ

Had the brisket which was fall apart hickory smoked tender and good, with a nice crust and good sauces. Potato salad and coleslaw also really good, made fresh there, unusual and spicy! Excellent! Place is clean enough to eat off the floor and very nice women working at the counter. Will... read more

Had the brisket which was fall apart hickory smoked tender and good, with a nice crust and good sauces. Potato salad and coleslaw also really good, made fresh there, unusual and spicy! Excellent! Place is clean enough to eat off the floor and very nice women working at the counter. Will definitely be back!

Pulled pork sandwich was ok. The service was poor. Although it was empty at lunch we had to wait for food wait for bill etc. The waitress did not want to be bothered. When some men came in they were treated much nicer. I will not be back

I would actually give a 4 1/2 star rating but TripAdvisor does not allow for that. As you walk in the new facility the delicious smoky aroma wafts throughout the restaurant. The service was very friendly. The couple running the place made it evident that they wanted you to come back and bring friends. But, the food would do that.... More

Some of the best BBQ in New Orleans, prices are very good. Owner who also is the waiter really knows how to smoke all kinds of meats. Really great selection and abundant sides.

This is based only on the rib plate after 5 pm.. Been here before for the pork and brisket and its very good. But I obviously came for the ribs and at that time they were under cooked. They were tuff and unflavored. I understand I might have come when the new batch from lunch rush were diminished. But staff... More

I first ordered the chicken. When it arrived it had a bad smell. It was spoiled. The guy I was there with said the same thing. We were told it smelled that way because it was smoked. I have been smoking meats for decades. It was not the smoke. They did however replace it with the pulled pork with no... More

Hillbilly does not try to cover all of the bases, but does a respectable job on the basics. They make two sauces and are your basic BBQ variety with a tip of the hat to Tennessee/Kentucky style. The meats are the usual: brisket, pulled pork, ribs, chicken, and links. Smoke is on the lighter end with good tenderness and quite... More

There is little to dislike about Hillbilly BBQ. All of the food is well cooked, expertly seasoned and fresh. The staff are a little quirky but that is part of the magic. Some of the sides are as good as it gets and my personal favorite is the sausage although some find it a bit different. The only caution is... More
