Great Chicken and Ribs

This is the place to go for great rotisserie chicken and ribs. For a reasonable price you get a half a chicken and rice and beans. For the same price you can substitute ribs, which fall off the bones. The kitchen closes at 6pm so get there before that or you will be out of luck. There is... read more

I don't eat chicken, so I had the Mahi Mahi instead. The rest of the people in my group had the chicken and thought they were delicious. The atmosphere was a mixture of locals and tourists, which was interesting. Everyone on the island was so nice, and there were great people here too. Try the Johnny Cakes.

We picked up an early dinner at 4:00 on a Monday, and they were already sold out of a number of items. The restaurant was filled with locals. Our chicken was delicious! The price was a considerable bargain.

We've been traveling to St. Croix for 23 years and just discovered this place last spring. A must if you like Island cooking and atmosphere! It's now a "must do" every time we're on the island!

Great food. Love this place. The chicken is amazing. They only take cash so be prepared. They do have an ATM so no need to go searching for one. This is a must when you come to St Croix.

Unbelievable when you see the 100's of chickens on the skewers cooking. The food is excellent, well priced and you get a lot. We ate there several times and highly recommend eating here

When you want to find the best food, ask the locals. At the Cruzan distillery, we asked a staff member where we should eat lunch and he recommended the Chicken Shack. I personally, don't eat chicken but my family members do and they were not disappointed. The chicken meal consists of 1/2 chicken roasted over an outdoor pit, a large... More

Chicken is cooked to perfection. Dont let the curb side view fool you. This place is the real deal. Casava is a must have get extra onions with orange sauce. Red alert I hate casava but there's is lights out.

We waded through traffic at 5:30 to get our "famous" chicken dinner to take back to the condo. After getting lost twice we finally got to the restaurant. Now, how can a place that specialized in chicken be OUT OF IT at 5:30 in the afternoon when they serve dinner until 8pm. Call before you make the trip

Martha Stewart was here a couple years ago and wrote about our quiet little place. Locals always knew it was the best. Known for their roasted chicken but really they have great ribs, local stuffing(which is orange and smooth) and lobster for around $24.00. For just $13 you can get half chicken, ribs with rice and vegetables. Enough for two... More
