This place is easily one of the top BBQ places in NO area. I have probably been there 5 or 6 times in the past year and it has been consistent. I have only had the ribs but each time they were meaty and flavorful. The sauces are good. The service is only so so but the folks working there... More

SO we went on a Saturday for lunch. I will say that it was pretty empty. I had heard nothing about the place. IN the end, I thought the food was very good. Service was fair. The value was also very good. I love good BBQ. Had the Brisket and pork. Both were very tasty, moist and flavorful. Sides were... More

The BBQ here is delicious, but the service from the older gray haired waitress (who never did give her name) was horrible. She was rude from the time we walked in until the time we left. In addition to the snide remarks and walking away from the table before we could order she went into the open kitchen and complained... More

Food was good, but not worth the long wait. 1:15 for a sandwich. Ran out of napkins, had to ask for silver wear. Bad service, lackluster attitudes, slow service.

Good grief, how can anyone give this place a decent review. About all that works well is the drink dispenser. My husband ordered the pulled pork sandwich and it had dry meat, and not a lot of it. I had the rib plate and I am not sure I have ever had worse! The ribs were fat, tough and so... More

Most people don't know about this hidden spot.It's really a shame because it's so good. Daily specials, freshly smoked meat, what more could you ask for really? A beer you say? Go next door grab you some! Be sure to try the hobo!

Hillbilly BBQ is a tucked away place at the end of Hickory Avenue that serves some of the best BBQ around. The BBQ plates are delicious and generous. The smoked brisket and pulled pork are tender, smoky and delicious. For something different, try the enormous loaded potato stuffed with the BBQ of your choice. You won't be disappointed!

My first impression was why is this place so out of the way to find. But then when i sat down the aroma of the bbq inside this place was enticing. The ribs were wonderful great smoky flavor and the bbq sauce was great as well... i really enjoyed this meal. I will return.
