Beer was $3.00 for a bottle of Heineken and my dinner was $10.00 for a very generous portion of chicken quesadilla. No table service as you order at a counter and then wait for the food. It was a Friday night and he band was playing at very high decibels so it was hard to know when your food was... More

We shared a half chicken, with rice and beans, baked beans, and johnny cakes. With a bottle of water and a soda, only $14. Friendly atmosphere, fun music playing, and made new friends.

The LA Reine Chicken Shack is one of the locations on St Croix that goes above and beyond to show their support for service members and veterans. During veterans day, they provided free meals to service members and veterans. Aside from their extensive menus that includes Latin cuisines, roast chicken and Johnny cakes, this business has some of the most... More

Johnny cakes are a must, chicken was okay but it was built up so much expectations may have been too high.

Rule #1 about eating out when traveling: look for where the locals eat. Never has this adage been more true than at La Reine; the food was exceptional, (I dare you to find a better, tastier and more satisfying meal for $7 anywhere) but, as with any great food joint, it's not "just" about the delicious chicken, try the pot...

Went here for dinner and it was good. Had the oxtail and bbq chicken. The food here is closer to Spanish food. than carribean food.

Drove by several times and didn't notice but so glad we finally stopped. Popular with locals. Reminded us of a drive in. Stewed Goat was a hit. Must have Johnnycakes.. Lots of food served but a limited menu

This place doesn't look like much, but the food is really good. Cheap, local place with a covered porch for seating. This is where the locals eat, and we could see why.

The story behind this restaurant makes it an irresistible destination. A poor St Croix family with a great chicken recipe opens a roadside chicken shack which becomes so popular that they open a small restaurant; then a bigger restaurant and ultimately a restaurant , bar and live music venue.
