My wife and I went here after receiving several recommendations to come here. We both agreed that the chicken was the best thing there.

We ate too many times at Chicken in a barrel. We tried the pulled pork, the chicken, the fries are very very tasty. I would recomend this place to everyone. Very good prices

I couldn't wait to try this place based on the reviews and because I love BBQ anything. I was underwhelmed. Sad face. My husband had the fish tacos and enjoyed them (thus the average rating) and I had the chicken in a barrel plate (which was a 1/4 piece of chicken), which was just okay. The chili was one taste...

Stopped in a for a lunch here and had to say their smoked chicken and ribs were mighty tasty and good portions. Loved the BBQ sauce and beans/chili. As far as prices go in Kauai to eat out I thought they were a great value and left you satisfied.

We had the pulled pork and beef plates. Meat was good and liked the BBQ sauces. Wasn't too impressed with the chili, corn bread made it better though.

Right in the center of town - let your nose guide you to this local eats spot. We got our mixed platter to go but there are lots of tables outside to sit on. The ribs, pulled pork and chicken are all good. Don't forget the BBQ sauce they make.

This little roadside stand has great prep for their freshly grilled chicken and prepares a really good chili as well. A little expensive for what you get but you are on Kauai.
