    The ribs, the pulled pork and the brisket are awesome. The Cole slaw is also amazing. The potato salad is different but very good. The only thing that isn't the best ever is the Mac and cheese.

    Hmmm... The Joint is a good spot if you're into barbecue without a ton of flavor. Now, I'm not saying it's not up to par, I'm just into spices and seasonings on my BBQ. The Rum Punch is amaze, though!

    Some of the best BBQ I've ever had! Ordered a bit of everything but the highlight was definitely the ribs. Drown it in their homemade BBQ sauce and you can't go wrong. Cheeky little cocktails too

    People rave about the pulled pork (which warrants its praise!) but the unsung hero is the melt-in-your-mouth ribs. You may even see Kermit Ruffins stop by before a show at Vaughan's.

    Thrillist Top BBQ List: ...the juicy, perfectly textured ribs and the succulent pulled pork (excellent with the apple cider vinegar-kicked sauce), and the creamy mac & cheese

    This is completely the real deal. Great ribs, great beans. Coleslaw and mac&cheese. Very cheap. Genuine place. Wifi. Outside space.

    All of the sauces are very very vinegary, so if you're into that, you'll love it. Me, not so much. Great patio. Great corn grits. But overall, not worth it.

    Okay I've tried it twice now and was disappointed both times. Chicken was dry, pulled pork was dry, ribs were kind of dry. I love my bbq super saucy, so maybe its not my style.

    If you're heading back to see Kermit at Vaughan's, don't get in line with everyone else. Just put a take-out order in at the bar and grab a drink. Kermit's probably there having dinner himself.

    The brisket is very good. The pulled pork is great (mix with Mac and cheese.) The ribs are the best I've ever eaten and its not close.

    Pork ribs were perfectly cooked and the baked beans are worth writing home about. Stop by here for great ribs and deserts too!!

    The best ribs I've ever had! Go for a combo of 2 meats. Pick ribs, brisket or pulled pork! Thanks to recommendation of @humidfoodie!

    Great food, funky place, reminds of the hippest places in San Francisco. Pulled pork and sweet tea can't be beat!

    Brisket is the best meat. Mac n Cheese is the best side. Peanut Butter pie is the best dessert

    Pulled pork sammy topped with cole slaw does not mess around. Put some Crystal on that bitch. Bitches love Crystal. Mac n cheese ain't too bad, neither.

    You can't go wrong with the brisket and the pork sausage! both are superb!
  • Igal G.
    Definitely get the sausage, best item on the menu and hardly ever ordered

    I had the 1/2 rack of ribs and it was the bomb! Mac & cheese is also excellent.
