Very casual, but 100 times better than the many tourist traps throughout Palm Beach. Fast service and incredible BBQ. The ribs are amazing. Of the dozen restaurants visited in the last few trips, this one is my favorite.

Aruba has many good restaurants and Smokey Joes is certainly a reliable choice. Delicious ribs, chicken and wonderful fish choices. Popular pricing and friendly service make it a must for a casual lunch or dinner in Aruba

Smokey Joes is an average chain type barbecue restaurant situated in tourist area. If you have ever been to a real United States based barbecue restaurant then you will be sadly disappointed with the food served here. The ribs are lightly flavored and covered with a commercial sauce and though the portions are generous the food is average quality at... More

This is like having a picnic in the park...you are seated outside with both covered and uncovered as well as shade and open to sunshine tables. The atmosphere is that of having dinner with the family. Lots of great food, finger licking tasty ribs, chicken, shrimp and more! The servings are large, and the quality is terrific. If you order...

Eat here each time I visit Aruba. Great food selection and atmosphere! There is an entree for everyone. I do not eat meat so I enjoy the shrimp or fish. My family loves the ribs. Ate here twice last week. Our waiter was Celvin and he was the absolute best. He even took pictures with us! I highly recommend this... More

Took the family to Joe's and had a good time. Ribs were very good and portions were large. Make sure u spice up the beans and rice with some Smoking Joe's hot sauce! Service was good and waiter was friendly! I would definitely go again!

We love to try BBQ places wherever we travel and smokey joes did not disappoint. We waited at the bar with a very friendly and attentive bartender. The black bean soup was excellent- very large portion so we ended up splitting it. The pulled pork was great, and the ribs were tender however one serving/plates was very fatty. Blackened Mahi...

My family & I smelled Smokey Joes for miles. We decided to stop in on our second day of vacation; well, the food is addictive. We ordered BBQ and a steak. They both were fantastic!!! And don't forget to order a drink called- Pink Iguana. It doesn't consume too much alcohol and its very tasty. Hence, The line is long,... More
