New Orleans is not known for it's BBQ, but if it was The Joint would have to be five times as big inside to accommodate the crowd! It is THE BEST BBQ IN TOWN! Melt in your mouth food! Great with or without any sauce, the meats were cooked to perfection, served wonderfully warm, and in a hearty portion all making for a great meal. I'm a local, but my friends and I noticed cars from North Carolina and Nevada parked close by, plus saw several groups get dropped off by cab. This place is a bit off the beaten path for restaurants located at the corner of Royal and Mazant in the Bywater of New Orleans, but worth the drive or cab fare. Street parking, outdoor dining, acceptance of all credit cards, reasonable prices, and comfortable seating is all a plus, but without any of that their meats are so worth the effort to get there that I recommend everyone try this place at least once while in town. Of the side items we ordered, all were great with maybe the exception of the green salad (only because the dressing was not fabulous.) Potato salad and mac'n cheese were fan favorites. Great sweet tea and soft drinks for $1.50 with free refills. A full bar for local bottled beers and specialty cocktails is a plus too. Can't wait to go back to THE JOINT!! It's always smokin'!
