THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Barbecue Joint Restaurant Review: Owned by two creative cooks, this unassuming eatery specializes in “eastern Carolina style” barbecue---hickory smoked whole hog with a peppery vinegar-based sauce. But the Joint’s repertoire goes beyond traditional Carolina dishes. Here you will discover you've hit the mother lode of hardwood-smoked fare, ranging from duck to peppered trout. If you can resist the lure of the smoke, other options on the eclectic menu include ratatouille, crab cake sandwiches, duck quesadillas and seasonal vegetable plates including good collard greens. Just save room for a slice of decadent old-fashioned chocolate layer cake.
