We had passed this place on our way to several other restaurants. Because of the throngs of people, we decided to stop one day for lunch. I had the pulled pork special with rice, beans and johnny cakes. We ordered mac & cheese to split. Others had half chicken. This food was so good, no one at... read more

Great food and great prices. Had the chicken and ribs. Chicken had a fantastic flavor and the ribs were fall off the bone. Great casual restaurant with tons of locals. Not the tourist spot, this is the genuine deal. Don't forget to get the Johnny Cakes, maybe even get a half dozen to go

There's just something about this place. We've been a few times now on our two visits to St Croix. The meals are large and delicious.

I'm not much of a meat eater, but the chicken here was incredible. The price is extremely reasonable especially for the amount of food you get. Make sure to try the Johnny Cakes! This was by far one of the best meals I had on the island.

Had read about this place in several travel guides; wanted to be sure to experience it, and we were not disappointed! Food was delicious, and judging by the local traffic, a huge hit.

La Reine is an excellent no frills spot for incredible chicken on St. Croix. The only problem is that they are so popular, they can run out of chicken by late afternoon. They have the ability for you to call in with your order beforehand, I highly recommend this. We visited three times during our 8 days on St Croix... More

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 a bar... 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!
