The food at Smokey Joe's is pretty good. Portion size is good. Price is, for Aruba, very good. The only drawback is almost every night it is packed. Because of that service can be a little slow at times. Otherwise a nice, casual beach restaurant at reasonable prices. Just a little advice, unless you are really into extremely hot food,... More

We loved this place so much, we visited twice during our week-long visit. The ribs were really out of this world and a great price (half rack, $15; full rack $20). The service was extremely fast and really polite. All staff are multilingual. It's a really chill environment, so don't feel obligated to get dressed up for this place; you... More

They have the best dry rub ribs that I have ever tasted. Very good french fries, and excellent cole slaw. They have a very good menu with other foods to eat other than ribs!

Ate at Smokey Joes for the first time during our stay this year in Aruba. I love BBQ and the smell coming from this restaurant drew me to it. The atmosphere is great because everyone is sitting outside and you can people watch as the tourists and locals walk the strip just feet from your table. The staff are very... More

We were looking for a simple fast meal before 6 and decided to give this a try. It was recommended for ribs by our hotel. It was filling up quickly. From the oil drenched coconut shrimp appetizer to the overcooked chicken brushed with ordinary barbecue sauce to a so-so broiled grouper with a side of salsa this was a dissapointing.... More

Ate dinner here twice during our week long stay. This place is right on the main drag in the high rise area. Outdoor seating only. Service was good first time, just OK the second. Everything we ordered was good. We tried the ribs, BBQ pork, BBQ chicken, burger w/pork. My wife loved the fried Oreos. Biggest plus is the food... More

I order the combo every time. Ribs and chicken. You won't leave here hungry. $20 for combo better deal then the combo for 2 at $40. Great go to place right on the strip of Palm Beach.

The prices were just right. You got so much food on the combo plates. The menu had a great variety. Our waiter was so nice. he explained the menu and made some suggestions. He had a total re-call of what we all ordered without writing it down. Some of the best food we had during our travels.

We try to visit this restaurant in the High Rise area every trip and they never disappoint. We always order the ribs. On this visit we ordered full racks of the Original Recipe and Smokey's Signature. You get a lot of ribs - so bring an appetite. My wife took half of hers to go. Now for the service... Hats... More
