A local's secret gem

We had been doing the fine dining, highlights of NOLA and were ready to scale it back and relax. This was the spot. You order your meal at the bar and within minutes, before you can drink more than a few sips of your ice cold beer and finish looking around at the

Food not bad, but not great either. Location cool but service sucked. Likely just a one time deal but if u don't mind paying for an overpriced hot dog its a unique experience.

I'm a little stunned by some of the positive reviews on here because I thought the place was pretty bad overall. The prices and portions on the menu did not match up with reality and the sides were nothing to brag about. I assumed that when they said chips they meant homemade chips since the menu said kettle made but... More

I never write reviews to begin with, but Ugly Dogs Saloon and BBQ was SO BAD that I just had to. When we walked past it, we were hungry, and it smelled good from the outside, so we decided that we would go in. Once we ordered, the portions were much smaller than advertised. We ordered a 1/4 lb. serving... More

This restaurant is not in a touristic place. The food is simple and delicious: burger and some cajun food. The staff is great.

Came to New Orleans for a huge convention and the restaurants were all jam packed within a 2 block walking radius. We ventured a little further and found this place had no wait, and about a dozen local customers. The BBQ is actually pretty good. Pulled pork is really chopped pork here, but the cubes were good and the sauce... More

I've never written a bad review, but this was the worst place we ate at while in New Orleans for Mardi Gras. My husband and I were visiting the National WWII Museum (worth the admission), and wanted some place nearby. We were going to go to Cochun, but passed the BBQ place first. Someone was out front cooking and it... More

Perhaps it was still suffering from a Mardis Gras hangover since my visit was three days after Fat Tuesday, but I was greatly disappointed with The Ugly Dog Saloon and BBQ. It certainly smelled like it was going to be a winner, with the wonderful tang of smoke in the air, but alas it was not to be. I was... More

I stayed in the Warehouse District of New Orleans and out walking looking for a place to grab a quick lunch....The Ugly Dog was it...I had a local beer and a half rack of baby back ribs....Later I found out they prepare the meat the night before and let them smoke for 12 hours slowly. A large healthy portion for... More
