Krewe Crescent City BBQ, a New Orleans-themed barbecue joint, opened on Super Bowl Sunday in the former Cantina space right next door to Stoney's -- and Stoney's owners are responsible for Krewe, too. Photographer Danielle Lirette stopped in to take these photos of the latest addition to the Golden Triangle.

A few things: Being from New Orleans and being a person who learned how to cook down in NOLA, I have to say the food here is great.I was at the “Soft Opening” and was there for the Superbowl.The BBQ style is a combination of southern BBQ with a NOLA twist.The Gumbo is some of the best that I have tried since moving to Denver. The smoked wings are the best I think I have ever had. I think the owners Will, Stoney, and Chad have done an amazing job with this place. This is a legit place that is a must try.

How many BBQ joints open and close in Denver every year? 


The people of Denver are educated and healthy. The exact opposite of the people who enjoy BBQ.

No Kyle no one does food like Louisiana! It spoils you and when you go to other states none of their food tastes like it has any seasoning! Bbq here has thick red to brown sauce! But we aren't really known for that. Unless its a cuchon de let ( whole pig roasted on pit fire.) And I probably spelled it wrong! Crawfish season will start a lil later this year because of the insane cold, I believe mother nature smoked some crack!

For those from the big easy, what is New Orleans BBQ like? Pulled pork or beef? Clear or red sauce? Give me the scoop; this article hasn't told me much.

Let's just hope it's for-real BBQ! Please give me a taste of home (Tennessee ). In the fierce competition of BBQ, I never even knew that New Orleans was in the ring,but c'mon and do right by this southern girl, y'all! I MISS PULLED PORK, PEOPLE! ! Get it right, and I'll be a regular for years!

I'm from New Orleans, I'm really going to put this place to the test to see if they taste anything like home.

I am from Mississippi and know exactly what you mean. Real cue in this city is truly lacking. We have tried lots of places claiming to be "Memphis Style" or "Southern Style"....they have all been disappointments. Thank goodness we know how to slow cook our pork at home!!

I'm a Tennessean, so I know my 'Q. Can anyone tell me about the actual bbq? Is it pulled pork or beef; real bbq sauce (which is clear, not red) or that thick, red Texas junk? I've been waiting years for a real BBQ place (tired of having family ship it to me!). Is it dry-rubbed and smoked, or wet and red? Anxiously awaiting, and very excited that we just might get the real thing! Whoo-hoo!!!

Nothing much is being mentioned regarding the BBQ. Is it Memphis, Texas, or Carolina style? Is it pulled pork, brisket, or beef? Sauce - no mention. Is it clear (cross your fingers), or is it that thick Texas red junk? Being a Tennessean, this is important, and I've been waiting years for a "real" BBQ place (I normally go home twice a year and bring it back to Denver). Can't wait for an actual article that has solid info on the pig (cross your fingers that it isn't beef BBQ). Anxiously awaiting, and very excited!!!

New Orleans doesn't have its own style of BBQ, so it will be interesting to see what they do. Sadly, you mostly see Texas style there.

Wondered the same. It could also mean bbq as in Creole style, which isn't bbq at all.
