You can smell this place from the road because the chickens are roasting in the open air over heat. A no-nonsense place to eat - simple,hot, and fresh food. Chicken is well seasoned and pairs perfectly with the barbeque sauce, and the jonny cakes were...More

Absolutely delicious food and extremely affordable. We had a whole chicken, 5 sides, and Johnny Bread (arepa) for about $20 and it fed 4 of us. Local place and nice staff.

We came near closing. Chicken was fabulous, as was the mac and cheese. Easy to find. Reasonably priced. A lot of locals were doing carryout.

Close to UVI and a great lunch spot. All meals come with rice, beans, and a salad so it's a pretty good deal and tons of food.

Here's where you can get a great deal. Half of a rotisserie chicken and 2 johnnycakes for $7. And a great BBQ sauce (vinegar-type). Chicken was moist, tender and delicious. Don't expect cloth napkins or servers, but a great friendly atmosphere. Drinks are cheap too.

If you are looking for what the locals flock to, La Reine Chicken Shack is your place. The food was very good and portion sizes were large for little money. It gets busy there on the lunch rush so plan accordingly.

I had heard about the chicken even before we hit the island so my family heard nothing else until we finally ate here! And it did not disappoint. The food is awesome and the atmosphere even better. Hang out with locals and eat an amazing,...More
