First visit to The Little Joint but it certainly won't be our last. Don't let the whole in the wall looks outside fool you. The staff was top notch, service was quick and the food was exceptional. We had burnt ends and ribs with french...More

A Little BBQ Joint is a fun place to visit. They have a lot of cool car stuff. The bar is even an entire Chevy car body. Actual parts of cars are even part of the outside of the building. Even the men's restroom has...More
