Central City BBQ

Barbecue in Garden, Lower Garden & Central City

'Who does the best barbecue in town' is a subject of low-intensity foodie debate in New Orleans, but Central City BBQ is a respectable answer. The spot is the love-child of two local chefs with a passion for barbecue and wood smoke. The interior is airy and modern by New Orleans standards, and the food is on point.

While you may find burnt ends (meat cut from the 'point' of the brisket that soaks up a ton of flavor) at other barbecue spots, Central City has a particular passion for these holy grails of the carnivore firmament.
