This establishment is a must to dine at when vacationing in Aruba. The service, the food and the price were all great.

Smokey Joe’s is an outstanding rib joint. They have big portions at reasonable prices, their service is great, and the ribs are delicious. Seating is outdoors but covered, and it can get a little warm near the kitchen, but that doesn’t matter when you have a cold beer and a great rack (of ribs) in front of you. I’ve heard... More

My spouse and I recently dined at Smokey Joe's and again, were disappointed with the "average" grade of our meals. We ordered wings as an appetizer, my spouse ordered the pulled pork sandwich and I ordered the chicken finger salad. The service was fine. The sauce on the wings was very, very salty but the wings were good. My salad... More

It's a great option in Palm Beach. Fantastic flavors. Excellent attention. The house's speciality (ribs) smells and tastes really good.

Always go Smokey's once whilst on island, the ribs are excellent. Best to go early otherwise you will have a wait to be seated. It's popular every night of the week, especially Tuesdays when they have all you can eat rib deal.

I read about Smokey Joes on trip Advisor and so we tried them on our first night in Aruba. The atmosphere is very funky and you get an island feel and it is outdoors on a busy main strip. The ribs had tons of sauce and we each had a full,rack. The first rack I enjoyed the second half was... More

Went here for dinner and had great BBQ. My hubby and I ordered a mixed BBQ grilled platter and both of us were licking our fingers and took home plenty of leftovers. Their cocktails were strong, service was a little slow but the restaurant is right on the strip so people watching makes the time go faster. Be sure to... More

I don't especially like BBQ but I was over ruled and forced to go here. Glad they made me. Nothing fancy here, outdoors, noisy fun. Good value nice size portions. I had the Original Ribs, granddaughter ordered fish and chips,daughter ordered the giant burger sister ordered mahi maih, and dry rub rib.
