"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." Full review

"This "quirky" Bywater smokehouse chars "irresistible", "succulent" BBQ that meat mavens claim "out oinks" the competition, especially the "last-meal-good" ribs." Full review

"While the sides at Squeal may be superior, we'll take The Joint's unsloppy smoked meat over its competitor's, though Squeal is no slouch in that department."

"The quirky charm of the Bywater neighborhood comes across strong at this little barbecue joint. The bright decor, hip jukebox, and the smokey meats all work together."
