This place does BBQ now, and REALLY great BBQ. Which is awesome, because I'm usually very skeptical of barbeque in this town. Every time my wife and I head to Memphis or St. Louis we usually make up for what we're missing here.
I've noticed recently there's a lot of new barbeque places popping up in town, and I have enjoyed trying the new variety that exists here. You've definitely got some OK choices now to fill your BBQ needs in NOLA. But I'm truly sold on Blue Oak.
I think they're making the best wings in town, and the groups of people I've invited to come with me to try have also confirmed this suspicion. They smoke their wings, and the sauces are pretty stellar. And for the record, these aren't those tiny wing pieces you'll find at some of the wing spots around here; they are legitimately sized wing portions. The rest of the menu is pretty solid as well- the brisket is great, as is the pork. I also really like their baked beans. If they've got a dessert going you should definitely try that too. We've had some great pie and bread pudding here.
The prices are pretty standard as far as plates go (~$12 I believe). You can order wings on game day in sets of 5 for a reasonable amount. The beer selection is good and the bartenders are great. Highly recommended.
