BBQ aficionados beware… this may up your game to an otherwise impossibly high standard. Try the ribs, pulled pork and barbecued shrimp. The slow cooked meals have a crusty outside and warm, melt-in-your-mouth inside. Even the salad can’t escape The Joint’s signature smoke: they’re covered in smoked tomato dressing. While in Bywater, you’ve got to check this place out. As the name suggests, they’re always smokin’ something.
