Two words - raclette fries. Dear lord. 

The burgers are amazing.... properly run-down-your-arm-juicy. And the ribs are delicious. 

But the raclette fries. Wow. I quite possibly died a cheese-infused-death and reappeared in crispy-fry-heaven. Just look..... 


Best in the village!

Easily the best place to eat in the village, awesome Burger and ribs and the wings are out of this world! Decent price and the staff are super friendly.


Bang tidy grub. Buns make a burger, and these buns are incredible. They pair the fantastically cooked fillings with all the correct trimmings and sauces. You will eat one in a moment and still be hungry for more - not because it's not filling, but because it's so good.

The sides don't disappoint either, their mac n cheese, wet fries and hush puppies are all a must.

Plus it's the only place I've had St. Reatham beer and that is an absolute dream. 

Well worth the visit. 

I was taken here in search for some of London’s best pulled pork, and I was not disappointed.

The pork may be their speciality but, being a Brixton local, I now eat here too often than I’d care to tell, and as a result I have tried almost all of their menu, and only have glowing feedback. Although that glow might be from the meat sweats..

Their 16-hour slow cooked pulled pork burgers are without a doubt fantastic (try the Asian version if you like a good kick), but their sides are what I keep going back for. All delicious and cutely wrapped in little parcels, which are perfect for catching every drop of sauce that comes with them.

Tastemaker tip: Their onion rings may just be the best in London, with the added bonus of being smothered in their dreamy BBQ sauce. An absolute must try! 


Visited The Joint last night to warm up from the rain with some proper hot food. Atmosphere here in the Brixton Village Market is great and the food here is brilliant. Between us we tried different burgers including Asian Chicken (careful as it packs a punch) as well as the tasty Mac n Cheese. But my all time favourite was the Hush Puppies! And absolute must try, and so cool how they package the parcels!


The pulled pork sandwiches are delicious! There are a few flavours - we tried 'asian' and 'bbq'. The sauce on the Asian is a bit spicier than the bbq. The pork is tender and the crispy coleslaw and mayonnaise makes for a nice contrast. There is something magic in the bun (could just be lots of butter). The mac & cheese is ok as a side - I found it a tad bland. At the Brixton location, you're sat outside at metal tables and it's not fine dining but it goes well with the type of food you're eating. RECOMMEND!

Best BBQ restaurant in London, their flavour packed buns and mouth watering sides will leave you coming back again and again, without breaking the bank! There are always different specials and the staff are really helpful and friendly! Great food, great atmosphere!! If you haven't been already add it to your to do list now!

Beautiful beautiful meat. Delicious bread. Crunchy salad. Awesome onion rings. Those wings. This place cannot be beat.

Burgers never fail to deliver. Would eat this everyday but I'd be the size of a house..


If making burgers was a fine art, then the joint burger is the Mona Lisa. I order the pulled pork with added cheese, because who's counting calories when you're feasting on this bad boy. I haven't been to the the Marylebone equivalent because I can only justify eating such a beast in the glorified SHED that is Brixton market (PLUS I like byob), but I'm sure it's just as good.

Juicy, meaty, yummy pulled pork in soft buns or wraps. That was my experience at the Joint, you might be squeezed in between small tables but thats just how Brixton Village works. The service is fairly quick and the quality of food is great if you're a fan of BBQ meat.

If it was possible to give the ribs 6 out of 5, I would. The asian pulled pork burger is almost as amazing. Have been here a few times and looking forward to the next time. If you've never tried them before and get tempted by the hush puppies, go for your guns. I suspect you may not have them on you inevitable 2nd visit. Love. This. Place.

This places is great. Sold tasting with great price. The bags can get a little sweaty when the food arrives but  you will love it.
