“Southern BBQ Feast!”
Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

How can you resist a restaurant named squeal? Loved it! Didn't know what to expect, but wow. Pulled pork and cheese grits were so so good! Great selection of beer. Down home and casual atmosphere. Nachos looked great and were thoroughly enjoyed by our teens. The owner brought out some smoked duck legs and we devoured them. And the collard greens- best anywhere in the world!

“The duck was best I've tasted- bar none.”
Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

If you're looking for a place with atmosphere, with great food and service you can't go wrong with this place! We, a party of 7 (with no reservations) was sested in under 15 minutes. The manager apologized and brought over a big plate of barbecued duck free! I'm crazy about duck and I'm picky as hell "too moist" "too dry". It was by far the best duck of my life (I'm pretty old).

“Good Bar-b-q”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

We had the Pulled Pork & Smoked Chicken with slaw and beans for $14. Price wasn't too bad for the meal. Pork was a little too spicy and dry for my tastes, but it had a good flavor. Wasn't too far out of the way if you are visiting new orleans and have a car.

“Better than expected”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

The food here is way better than one may expect from a casual BBQ place. There were eight of us who got in soon before the kitchen was closing and the staff were really helpful and even suggested modifications to some items based on available ingredients. The house-cured bacon dipped in honey is pretty great, even to someone who doesn't like bacon very much. The fish special was also very good. Only complaint is that everything was on the salty side.

“Delicious and in a great location to the Maple Leaf bar”
Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

We stopped in before a big show and party at the Maple Leaf bar a block down. The food was delicious and the Barbeque and corn had a great taste!
