Walker's Southern Style BBQ (New Orleans, La)

I really wanted to like this place. I really really did. But I did not.

The ribs had a great taste, an ok texture (despite the fact that they left the membrane on), and yet they SMELLED awful.

They ran out out of the brisket so maybe I'm not being fair. However, I'm just going off what I was served.

Not much left to say. The women that ran it were really sweet and there wasn't an ounce of that presumptuous attitude that lurks many New Orleans establishments.

Walker's BBQ will be receiving a 2 out of 5 stars.

p.s. I'd like to say that maybe I'll try it again someday but I'd rather smoke my own BBQ than give second chances. I will also put a disclaimer up, Walkers is known for their couchon du lait po boys. I didn't get it because this is not a po boy blog.

Wow the excitement was overflowing the cab of my pick up as we roared down Haynes Blvd. to Walkers. Man we've read dozens of reviews and word of mouth was endless on this place. We arrived early around 11:10 am we thought great the place is empty. we each ordered a sampler plate a bit of everything. we paid the kind Gent (Cash Only) and headed out the door about a 1/2 mile down the road we pulled in under a shade tree and broke out what we anticipated was the Holy Grail of BBQ . Bam right between the eyes broadsided what is this . cold tasteless mush the smoke ring appears to be food color on the ribs and brisket, Membrane still on the ribs left an unpleasant taste and toughness to the ribs. The brisket and pulled pork are unmistakenly boiled as they were mush cold tasteless mush. we didn't eat anything only tasted it a second time to confirm we warn't on Ashton Kutchers Punked!! we bagged it up and handed it of to a couple of homeless guys on our way to the french quarter for a Central Grocery Muffeletta. Sorry Walkers really Sorry we so wanted to have a great experience. You can't fool all the people we've had Killer BBQ plenty of times this wasn't one of them times
