The Joint is a New Orleans BBQ spot with a full bar that's serving up house-smoked chicken, ribs, and pulled pork until 10pm every night. As far as the editors at Thrillist are concerned, The Joint is one of the best barbecue places in America. The next time you are in New Orleans, you need to stop by The Joint.
One of NOLA's finest BBQ joints, McClure's cooks his meats in a gigantic courtyard smoker and gives you the option of selecting from a variety of sauces, including North Carolina-style, sweet Kansas City sauce, and white Alabama sauce.
Run by the Young brothers Patrick, Brendan, and Eugene, Squeal cooks up quality 'Q and their sides (like boudin balls, smoked pork cakes, cheese grits, and pulled pork nachos) are just as tasty as the meat.
