Squeal BBQ

WOW! I just finished dinner here and can't believe how good their food is! Pulled pork, grits and corn, ribs, baked beans were the best I've had in the city. I had to come home and check what people were saying on Chowhound, but I'm surprised more people aren't recommending this place. Just a tip for those looking for a new BBQ place. Well worth the visit. I'm happy I live up the street!

  1. I have not heard of this. Where is it, and what is the menu?

      A couple blocks off Carrollton. I just looked them up online and they have a site with their menu.

    2. if your looking for some GREAT BBQ, go to Hillbilly BBQ in River Ridge...damn good food!

      1. Hillbilly is good, but kind of a trek. I have been eating Squeal several times a month since I was introduced to it and I think it is the best bar b q in the city.It is owned by brothers that had worked for John Besh and the food rocks!

          Hillbilly and The Joint are far better choices - the best I can say about Squeal is that they are open late

            Pretty mediocre, IMO. Had BBQ all over Texas, up in Memphis and KC... and NO. I know NO isn't a big BBQ place, but Squeal was on the lower end of my spectrum overall.

            1. re: haywire

              Squeal is my new favorite and the best bbq in the city. No where else even comes close IMO.

            2. re: paz5559

              I couldn't agree more. My experience at Squeal was dreadful. The meat was dry, the waitress was not with it, and the bbq sauce was sub-par. I'd go to the Joint 1000 times before I'd risk another visit to Squeal.

          2. I have not tried Squeal yet, but I have only heard average to poor reviews from others. I'll hold off on judgment until I try it personally.

            Since this has somewhat morphed into a best of NOLA BBQ thread, let me say that Walker's is by far the best that I have had in NOLA.

              Walker's ribs and CDL are, indeed, deserving of inclusion in the top ranks of NOLA BBQ places

            2. Honestly, the food isn't that great. I went there one time with some friends and the food i ordered came out cold and tasted less than fresh. I was sorely let down. I guess I agree when people say the only positive thing about it is that it is open late.
