New Feature!



The Joint is New Orleans premier BBQ restaurant, opening up in 1994 during the rise of barbecue in the Crescent City. Having been located by in the Bywater District for years, The Joint has recently moved to a more tourist accessible area on the corner of Mazant and Royal. When you want authentic barbecue, you want the place serving it up to emulate the "side of the road" type BBQ joints that you'd see driving through the Smokey Mountains. The Joint, featured in Guy Fieri's "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives" is that place. They don't rush the smoking here, evident by the crusty outer layer and pull apart texture of the meats.
