“The best ribs anywhere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This place is off the beaten path of Bourbon street. But well worth the 10.00 cab ride to get there. Oh and go hungry

“Finger Licking Good....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

If you are a visitor, take a cab. It is really, really off the beaten path, but well worth the trip. This is my second day this week having lunch at this restaurant. Love It, Love It, Love It. The pulled pork is so God awful good it's sinful. The ribs fall of the bone, goodness, goodness, and please, please have the pecan pie for dessert. This joint does it RIGHT, every time. It's small but good thing come in small packages. This is one of them.

“AMAZING!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

What a gem! It is a very small place in a different part of town but very worth it! The ribs were perfect and the pulled pork was great too.

“Awesome BBQ and great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

The Joint has everything you can imagine in a southern BBQ place. Great food and the perfect atmosphere. The Ribs and brisket were amazing. Loved that you can go outside and see the massive smoker.
