Looks like a hole in the wall but oh what gr8 bbq! We had the combo special- pulled pork and ribs with a side. Skip the salad- not so good, but the beans were yum! They don't drown everything with their bbq sauce, actually there were 3 different homemade versions of sauce on the table to try. When it gets... More

Do not miss this gem!!!! They have since relocated, but whwn my friends I were there it looked very questionable. Not fancy in the least. The food was amazing! Best BBQ ever. The place has a certain charm that is hard to describe. All the sides were tried were equally delicious. I will be going back to The Joint the... More

Wonderful BBQ in the Bywater. Indoor and outdoor tables (bring sweater if indoor, serious a/c). Order at counter and they bring the food to the picnic style tables. This is get messy BBQ with paper towel dispensers mounted in the tables. Pork, brisket, spicy cornbread and slaw were great. Ribs were perfect. Must try the Cajun sausage - so tasty!... More

My daughter took me to this little corner place for BBQ. Although the building looks a little quirky, don't be put off. The BBQ is amazing and the prices aren't exorbitant. You can eat in or in the garden or take away. Locals eat there and it is defo worth the trip.

We took the bus from the FQ out to the Bywater for a meal at the Joint. Because we had a Jazzy Pass that we'd been using all day, this seemed like the best way to travel and it was a snap. The driver didn't know all the cross streets so we had to yell "stop" whwn we realized that... More

You can tell this place is a treat and enjoyed by many locals. Good food, great price, friendly staff. Small bar inside (seats 6) and small dinning area (prob seats 25). BBQ pork, chicken, beef... good slaw and potato salad... even has homemade sweet tea and lemonade. Definitely recommend hitting up this treat.

If you are looking for some real good BBQ and don't mind going a little of the normal beaten path road, I Definitely recommend checking this place out. I got the pulled pork sandwich and it was amazing. And the BBQ sauce was the best I've had!

We went to The Joint as part of a culinary bike tour (see my review for Confederacy of Cruisers). These were among the best ribs we've ever eaten! Unfortunately because were were part of the tour we only had the ribs, coleslaw and mac n' cheese, but everything else that was coming out of the kitchen looked delicious! The ribs... More

Based on online reviews we ventured to the Joint. We passed through what looked to be questionable neighborhoods but they weren't. The charismatic appearance is fun and the interior matches. The staff was friendly and courteous. The food was delicious. I had pulled pork and enjoyed every bite.
