This place is in a funky yellow and brown striped building way out east on Royal, and it is the place to go for great BBQ. The ribs are cooked just right and the sides are all good. Someday I might try the links and brisket, maybe. I just can't say no to the ribs. Very relaxed and casual, but... More

We visited NOLA as a group of seven, going to The Joint was my grown son's one wish this year. It didn't disappoint, really good BBQ, all of it to my knowledge, although I will say the side dishes were just okay. The neighborhood seemed to be very fun and quirky, the location requires a cab if you have no... More

Not a fancy place, I ordered a two meat dinner, with sausage and brisket, got the mac n cheese as my side. The sauce was excellent as was the mac n cheese and brisket. The sausage was just too much for me to eat in one sitting, so I got a box for the rest, and saved a piece of... More

Being someone who bbq's at home and is never quite satisfied with other's BBQ, The Joint never disappoints. I love everything there.

I have eaten here a countless number of times. It is always phenomenal and never disappoints. I eat a lot of BBQ and would rate this among my favorites in NOLA. Great atmosphere to boot, nice local decoration and this small outdoor eating area is great as well. Do not miss this place!

Awesome place for BBQ in a cool neighborhood! If you want to head here from the French Quarter, walk through Crescent Park!

This was a fun visit. We went after it was recommended by a local. You order at the counter, and then find a seat, and when your food is ready, they bring it out while shouting your name. They also have a full bar. It was pretty crowded on Friday night, and it was a little chaotic trying to find... More

The Joint is off the beating path and is well worth the trip while in NOLA! I would recommend anything off the menu seeing it is made on location and is always good. This is our multiple time to the Joint and would suggest you put it on your to do list.

Was excited to stop in again after a few year's and have another great meal. They've moved to a new location on Manzant that has more inside seating and much cozier. The outside area is quieter, but cold even with the heaters on in winter. That didn't stop the locals from hanging out there, though. The place was buzzing with... More

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighborhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
