We happened to visit the restaurant on Tuesday when they had all you can eat! The ribs were great and the sides were also good, we were celebrating a birthday so they brought out desert for everyone!

BBQ chicken was good, and so were the rice and beans and cole slaw that came with it. Sangria was excellent! A pretty standard BBQ joint.

Going to Smokey Joe's on a Saturday night at 7pm was not a good idea. Get there at 5 for dinner. We waited an hour before being seated, then it took over an hour to get our food. Seating people was very unorganized, they had no system. Our waiter was very nice and the food was very good, we had... More

We had a large party and we were seated very quickly. However, we waited awhile for food. Can't go wrong with a pink iguana. That's what keeps us coming back.

BBQ was pretty good. The ribs were fatty, the pulled chicken was excellent, but not enough of it. Overall the volume of food was not worth the price paid for what it is.

Great place to eat in Aruba, food was terrific. The boneless chicken wings are awesome appetizers. The prices are good and drinks are tasty. The combo meals are a great deal, I had the pulled pork and half a rack of ribs. The ribs fall off the bone and melt in your mouth.

We visited Smokey Joe's for dinner after the good experience at the sister establishment Iguana Joe. Unfortunately it did not meet our expectations. To start with, the location is crowded and noisy. The pulled pork BBQ was good, while the chicken in the Cesaer salad was very dry. The sangria was quite bland, not much wine in it... We won't... More

There is always a long wait but this really is a great place to eat. The ribs and pork sandwiches are amazing, as well as the wings. We were also fans of the cheese fries.

The barbecue was good, the wait is long, the cocktails are only okay, the service is good. It is a good first night place.

The restaurant was in walking distance from our hotel. It was very casual, and the food was good and reasonably priced. We were looking for a quick, easy meal after a sunset snorkeling trip, and this was perfect. It is not gourmet fine dining, but a fun BBQ place.
