In New Orleans it refers to the old type of granite-curbed sidewalks found throughout the French Quarter, the Marigny, uptown and several other neighborhoods.
If you drive too fast in a rain you'll splash people walking on the banquette.

This is what some people in New Orleans call a sidewalk.
We can walk to the store on the banquette.
