Found this place by accident...searching online for BBQ places...and convenient to those living/working on Redstone Arsenal. The restaurant is located in a convenience store/gas station. Large smoker on wheels behind store/restaurant. Restaurant is order service at the counter. Tables/seating for inside dining or walking/call in...for take out. Don't be deceived by the "location" in a convenience store/gas station. It has it's own "ambiance" and the owner/smoke master is obviously great at his BBQ and Cajun food preparation. The staff are also very knowledgeable and friendly.
Open Mon-Sat 10am-6pm. N.O. Lunchbox serves different BBQ and Cajun specialties. I have concentrated on BBQ, sides and desserts. Generally eat in/take out brisket and pulled pork, but periodically also have their ribs and sausage. Also, I/we love their cole slaw and potato salad as our favorite sides. The bread pudding is especially good.
We've tried both their BBQ plate lunches...BBQ with sides, texas toast, and drink; as well as bulk BBQ by the pound and potato salad, cole slaw by the quart. Occasionally, splurge on the taste and calories to have their delicious bread pudding.
We hit N.O. Lunchbox several times a month. Serves lunch and dinner. Guess it would be considered fast food since the BBQ and most of the selections are available at opening....with some things being prepared as on hand stocks are used up during the day. Have dined in and got take out for business and family/friends.
As for pricing, consider the pricing to be mid-range to cheap eats (relative to other BBQ places) and considering the portions/price and prime quality.More
