Diners, drive-ins, and dives restaurant

I saw a place on this show which is a fav of my bf. It was in the 9th ward. It was called The Joint. Anyone know about it and if so how can I get there from The St. James.

I've never eaten there, but it's in the Bywater, near Elizabeth's Restaurant. Here's the web site: http://www.alwayssmokin.com/

Easiest (and best!) way to get there is to take a cab!

The Joint has very good BBQ! I've eaten there a number of times, although not recently. That's pretty much all they do unless things have changed. N.O. is not a great 'que town, but the Joint is one of the best. Of course, many people are very opinionated and particular about what they think great BBQ consists of, so the Joint may or may not be your style. My wife, who is from serious BBQ-land, says the Joint is "pretty good, for New Orleans". But her BBQ is better.

Have never been, but the show was intriguing. Makes me want to try it next trip. The ribs looked great, the sauce sounded good, according to Guy, and the salad dressing was "off the hook". Take a cab.

According to Joey K's website, they're going to be featured on Diners, drive-ins, and dives, too. http://www.joeyksrestaurant.com/ I really enjoyed the reuben and sweet potato fries I had there.
