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

We had a great time at this restaurant! A group of 56 was a lot for the staff to handle but we all got our food and enjoyed every bit of it. I had the pulled pork with sides of mac & cheese and beans ... super good! Some in our group asked about dishes that weren't on the menu... More

Best bbq in town. Love the ribs and brisket. The corn salad is excellent and the potato salad is my favorite. They boil the potatoes in crab boil. Give it a try, you will go back!

Our family of five visited Hillybilly Bar-B-Q on a weeknight. They have somewhat strange hours (closed on Sunday and Monday, and they close at 8 p.m. on nights they're open) so keep that in mind. Our group ordered three rib platters, one combo platter and one sandwich. All the food was excellent. I really enjoyed the potato salad. If you're... More

Can't say that I have had better BBQ in new Orleans than here. I usually get the ribs. There sides are real good too. I really like the corn salad. If there is one thing that would make this the best is the service. It is inconsistent at best.

Hillbilly Bar-B-Q is a family owned restaurant that has been serving great food for years. A casual atmosphere (you could be overdressed in Jeans), reasonable prices, and great Bar-B-Q. Wednesdays they do a fantastic chicken salad that is to die for. Sandwiches can be served on bread or bun. About once a month our office gets a whole Bar-B-Q smoked... More

They advertise as Kentucky Style BBQ. Their bbq sauce is spicey with a vinegar base, as well as their cold slaw, tangy vinegar base, no mayo. Their sandwiches are served on a plain bun with bbq sauce in a cup on the side. We split a chicken and a pork sandwich. Both were pulled meats and then finely chopped to... More
