The Joint Review

You can't miss this bright yellow-striped building but it's the smell of the meat—pork shoulder, pork ribs, beef brisket, and chicken—cooking in the custom-made smoker that will draw you in. In a town not really known for great barbecue, the Joint is the exception, which is why it draws hungry patrons from far and wide. The meat is the thing, but don't skip the side dishes, which go above and beyond in concept and execution, particularly the sweet-and-spicy baked beans, and the crispy-on-the-outside mac and cheese. Pecan, key lime, and peanut butter pies are fitting country desserts.

    You'll be back

    Fast became a neighborhood hotspot, even before the "little storm". True the atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired, but if your lucky there's a parking spot out front for fast take out. Call to make sure they are open, since this is the far side of the Bywater!. Can't beat the food for taste and price!.
