Barbecue: The Joint is one of the premier spots to get your smoke on in New Orleans, opened since 2004 during the early rise of barbecue in the Crescent City. Located in the Bywater at the corner of Mazant and Royal, The Joint is owned by Jenny and Pete Breen and serves authentic "side of the road" BBQ and side. Featured in Guy Fieri's "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives" The Joint is all about the slow smoke, evident by the crusty outer layer and pull apart texture of the meats. This place is so smoke-centric that even the salad comes with a smoked tomato dressing.
Take Out: Looking for a hearty lunch in a fun atmosphere? The Joint attracts a dynamic mix of tourists and locals, who fill up on juicy ribs, scrumptious barbecue sandwiches and flavorful sides at this quirky kitchen. A jukebox playing in the background and unusual decor add character.
