    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

    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.
