Low cost, high value, delicious chicken with johnny cakes!! There’s always a line but we’ll worth it. Their sauce is incredible and always have leftovers for the next day. We will always visit this great place when we are on the island!

My husband only has so much appetite for local cuisine, but TA helped me find this place that we both really enjoyed! Cheap meals, big portions. Got extra johnny cakes to take back for breakfast the next morning!

Chicken was juicy and delicious. Rice, Plantains, and Johnny Cakes were out of this world. You had to be a little patient to get a table, but it was worth the wait. You know it was great because it was mostly locals when we went.

Great Cruzan roadside spot. Great service, wonderful Johnny cake, just as I remember as a kid. All great, but chicken a bit dry. Will come back and try again.

Had the half chicken which came with two piping hot Johnnycakes. The food was outstanding! I generally only eat wings but I ate the entire half chicken. Can’t beat the price, $7.00. There’s always a line but you can understand why. This is a must...More

This is the most delicious chicken you will ever eat!!! Just find a place to park and don't be put off by the crowd. It is definitely worth the wait! If we had more time, we would have returned again and again! Bring cash!
