Simply the best

The Chicken Shack is simply the best barbeque I've had. Half a chicken with seasoned rice is plenty for two at lunch. I'm not usually a fan of the skin, but wow is it packed with flavor. Just couldn't resist - finished all the skin. The chicken was nice and moist. The ribs were reported to be... read more

Every time I visit St. Croix, I MUST visit this restaurant! It has the best roasted chicken and Johnny cakes on the island!! It is open-air but has excellent prices, finger-licking good food, and friendly service. It's always full of locals, so you know that that means--it's a good choice! I was surprised to see that they now offer breakfast... More

The chicken, rice, and beans with salad were the best ever. My 5 and 10 year old sons loved the chicken roasted over open pits. You really should make this a lunch stop. The line might be long but it is worth it. We ate a very late lunch so the line was short for us. Bring cash - no... More

Food was good. Chicken was very moist and service was quick. Although our group arrived at what appeared to be prime Chicken Shack time, we moved through the line quickly. The employees were friendly and helpful as well.

The Chicken Shack is one of our favorite eating places when we're on St.Croix. They have the best chicken you can get ANYWHERE! Besides the great food you get friendly service and a comfortable atmosphere. The Johnny Cakes that come with the chicken are hot and fresh out of the oven. Simply delicious!

They offer a variety of authentic food but when they're out, that's it for the day. They make up for that with the variety and the Johnny cakes.

There isn’t much to look at on the outside of this restaurant, but the food is cheap and good. Had the BBQ chicken with rice and beans. Both were great. You get a lot of food for your money. Service was friendly. Cash only so make sure to bring some with you. They have an shady looking ATM available if... More

Loved the pulled pork and chicken. We only spent 40.00 to feed 7 of us and still had left overs. Outdoor eating area or carry out available.

We went to La Reine to try something a little more local. I was excited to get stew chicken, but they were out of it. We tried some wings, chicken, and ribs. The food was great, it was A LOT of food, I would recommend splitting.
