“BBQ! I'm There!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I love BBQ! So where ever I go, I always look for a BBQ place. I've been to a number of BBQ places in the Salt Lake City area and they sometimes tend to taste like each other. The Joint had a very good southern taste and so tender was the meat. The ribs were delicious and the meat fell right off the bone. One literally did fall on the floor. Man it looked so good that I was tempted to still eat it off the floor, but I didn't. (Really, I didn't). I had the three meat plate, ribs, chicken and sausage with 2 sides, beans & potato salad. The beans, ehh..were so so, but the rest was great! So dig in when you there!

“Amazing food!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

I love BBQ and this restaurant is fantastic! All varieties of bbq (ribs, brisket, pulled pork, chopped beef and 2 varieties of sausage) all deserve 2 thumbs up. The women behind the counter are very friendly and make you feel like they are happy you are there. Open, bright and clean atmosphere and a great place to use for catering. Make sure to get some sweet tea!

When traveling to Oak Harbor, this is a must do. I have never had such good BBQ. You have to try the corn muffins!
