Central City BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #219

I’ve heard good things about the BBQ here so I had to come check it out.  Nice looking place, with seating inside and out.  There’s a stage outside so I’m assuming they have live entertainment at times.  I was going to ask about that, but I was so hungry and excited about the food I… Continue reading Central City BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #219

Tres Bon Cajun Meats, River Ridge, LA Report #216

  This place is in River Ridge, Louisiana, which is located not too far west of New Orleans.  I heard good things about their BBQ so I figured I’d go give it a try.  Right in the front parking lot there was a big BBQ pit on wheels belching out smoke.  If I had a… Continue reading Tres Bon Cajun Meats, River Ridge, LA Report #216

Ugly Dog Saloon & BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #209

I came here for one thing and one thing only.  The Lafitte Pig sandwich.  I heard from a fellow foodie it was worth the trip.  Sliced ham, pulled pork and bacon, topped with coleslaw and cheddar cheese.  Sounded good to me.

MANHATTAN LOCATION PERMANENTLY CLOSED.  ST. CHARLES LOCATION OPEN   Pretty good BBQ at this place.  There are other locations, including one right on historic St. Charles Avenue.  I’ve been to that one too and the food is pretty consistent between these two locations.
