We visited La Reine Chicken Shack for lunch on a weekday in August. There is a bar one one side and a order and pick-up window on the other. There are many tables and it is all covered outdoor dining. If you walk around to the building next to the take out window, you can see the skewered chickens, 14... More

Title says it all, this is the best place to eat and the least expensive. The only thing is its outdoor eating, but well worth it. Also, on Saturday when we went to were ladies sell cake in the parking lot, if you skip this you WILL be sorry. Everything was excellent at this place. GREAT JOB! I would give... More

We got here around 2:00, and it was still crowded. This is the place to come for BBQ chicken and ribs. The ribs fell off the bone, just delectable. They're not done with any kind of sauce, just seasonings, but they are served with sauce on the side. The chickens are spit-roasted, and there are hundreds of them going on... More

A great place to pick up dinner. The chicken and ribs are tasty! The meatloaf is really good too. The rice and beans are great sides and if you love Johnny Cake then you're in luck!

Took a tour of St Croix. Asked the cab driver for a place to have breakfast. He suggested this place. My husband and I had a western omelet with sausage (turkey), peppers and onion. The best omelet we have had in a very long time.

We had the chicken the pork meals, they were pretty good, nothing fantastic. The jerk chicken and pork in Jamaica put this place to shame, and its pretty pricey for a road side shack.
