What a great find. Got the whole chicken with 4 johnnies (dumplings) rice beans and macaroni all for 18.95 I believe. This is not fast food but when it arrives is a delightful juicy bbq chicken. On the right of the building is the rotisserie which is a delight in itself. What a place.

If you want good food cheap, stop here. We split the chicken dinner and added mac/cheese and coleslaw and it was $13. Tons of locals. Eat in or to go. I think only open till about 5pm and they sell out.

We read a few reviews and thought we'd give it a try since it was close to the supermarket (we like to eat out when on vacation but not every meal and wanted beach snacks). It was well worth it! We had the special which was 1/4 chicken and 2 Johnny cakes ($6.50) and will go back again before we... More

Was well worth the wait for the food! One of the local people we meant told us about The Chicken Shack restaurant when we were vacationing in St Croix. We ate there are last night in St.Croix and wished we had know about it before our last night we would've ate there all week. There were 4 of us, we... More

Met Robert who is one of the owners on an AA flight from Miami to St. Croix, as we were waiting to get off the plane he told us we needed to visit his place for a great meal so we took his card and a day later braved the tropical storm and found it. All they had left was... More

You can't mention St. Croix without mentioning "Le Reine Chicken Shack!" 6 days in STX and 6 days at LRCS! We love the atmosphere, service, food, music, and JOHNNY CAKES!

Food was good. Great local place...It literally is a large shack-like BBQ type place where you can view the chickens on the rotisserie in the back. Large amount of food for the price which was a nice respite from eating at the resort. Definitely recommend to get some local flavor!

If you are looking for food with a local flare and at a decent price, this is the place to go. I had oxtail, curry chicken, lemon herb butter shrimp with rice and peas. You must have the Jonny Cakes, I have consumed at least 10 of these over my 7 days stay, and 4 visits to this restaurant.

If I could've, I'd have eaten here all the time, the food was excellent, in fact, it was beyond excellent. As it turns out, we ended up eating here 4 time during our short 5 day stay. This is a local hot-spot with a very casual atmosphere, fast, friendly and efficient service. The place opens at lunch time and closes... More
