We had an excellent lunch here. It is a real wood smoker place. All sauces on the side. We had brisket, pulled pork, and ribs with a side. The brisket showed that perfect pink ring. Delicious, unctuous meat. We also tried the large, well seasoned sausage and I can say I've never had better. Jalapeño corn muffins were spicy and... More

Evidenced by the amount of customers on a weekday night and the number of locals getting their takeaway in the hour we were there, this is a popular place. Great value for money - order a combo and get there early while there are ribs left! (Try the beans)

Would have been a 5er but they were out of Brisket at 2:30 pm :(. Ribs were very good but better get the full rack if you want to leave stuffed. The family got pulled pork sandwiches and a sides. Pulled Pork-3.5, Mac and Cheese-5, Baked Beans-5, Potato Salad-5. BBQ Sauce-3 (wished they carried Oklahoma's HeadAndCountry) Can't wait to try... More

Had the ribs and they were great. They can even grill chicken right. Beans and coleslaw were very good. Potato salad average. Highly recommended.

You walk in and order and pay at the counter and then take a seat, we were lucky and got a table before the crowds came! I had the combo where I got Ribs, Brisket, Pulled Pork and 2 sides. The ribs were amazing the meat just fell off the bone, the brisket was good but the pork was a... More

I lived near Memphis for 6 years after Katrina and had access to the worlds most incredible BBQ! This place reminds me of that BBQ! Tin Kettle in back. I felt I fell into Fried Green Tomatoes. The inside was awesome!!!!!! Kitschy and funky!!! You think you took a wrong turn when you see it. Do not be deceived. Worst... More

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighborhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
