Our hotel was on St Charles and we did not want to eat at some chain restaurant. We tried Voodoo BBQ & Grill and although the BBQ sounded good, we were hungry for a good burger. Voodoo delivered. The Burgers were very tasty & I like to just get a burger without fries and that was easy to do. We... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express by the airport because of an early flight out the next day. We walked to the Voodoo BBQ & Grill - PERFECT in every way. I ordered "The Carnival" which is a VooDoo BBQ Signature item consisting of BBQ Pork, Chicken, Sausage, Turkey and Brisket - chopped and mixed with sauce and 2... More

The meat was tender, moist, and nearly fell off the bone. Deliciously seasoned with mild spiciness. As sides, I chose the baked beans and sweet potato souffle. Washed down with an ice cold bottle of Miller High Life and a lemonade on 19MAY ~1400. Couldn't have asked for a more pleasant and delightful late lunch. Service excellent, the staff was... More

This is our go-to place for dinner before flying out from the NOLA airport. We have tried several of their choices and have always been pleased. The spareribs and great, as is the pulled pork sandwich.

We found this restaurant mentioned in a book about New Orleans, called Eat Dat. We then proceeded to eat all over the city during our 6 day stay in March. This was by far the BEST food we ate! It is NOT fancy. But, that being said, it was totally delicious! I had the Bar B que, which came pulled... More

We order the pulled pork and spicy sausage as main plates and were very pleased. Service was bit off and out of lids and straws for drinks. Sides of gumbo and mac&cheese were good. Not a fun of the sour cream based potato salad.

Located right off the St. Charles streetcar line in the beautiful historic Garden District is the flagship location of VooDoo BBQ & Grill. Voted by locals as one of the top BBQ restaurants in Gambit's annual "Best Of..." issue and known for dishes such as their pulled pork, which is cooked for 14 hours over oak and pecan wood and served with two sides and a piece of garlic-buttered Texas toast, as well as the corn pudding, which is a cornbread souffle baked with whole sweet corn. VooDoo BBQ & Grill is the sound, the soul, the taste of BBQ, New Orleans-style. Brisket, pork, chicken, gumbo, salads and burgers all with the spice and magic of Louisiana.
