New Orleans is one of America’s culinary capitals, known for Creole and Cajun specialties from po-boys to gumbo. The city hasn’t historically been a haven for traditional American barbecue but in recent years, new BBQ joints have popped up all over the city, and they’re changing NOLA’s barbecue reputation. Check out our 10 favorite BBQ restaurants and pop-ups below.
This barbecue pop-up joint has two regular locations, one Uptown and one in Mid City. On Friday nights, NOLA-Q can be found in Coulis, a popular Uptown breakfast spot, while on Saturdays it moves to Pal’s Lounge, a quirky Mid City dive. Diners love the BBQ chicken and cheesy potato side dish.
