Best Authentic Island Food

The food here is awesome, the residents of the Island frequent this establishment. The food selections are numerous and the portions are quite generous, to the point where two adults can share a meal. You must order the Johnny Cakes if you eat here, the are amazing.

My wife and I went looking for local, home cooked food. We got tired of eating out at nice places - not home style places. We got there, figured out which line to order from, placed our order and waited a bit. Worth the wait and worth finding. Chicken is wonderful rice and beans like you get at home Johnny... More

Ate here while on vacation on St. Croix after doing marine biology research on St. John, This place was recommended as "good, fun, and cheap" and it was all the above. They serve BBQ ribs, steak, and chops, along with meatloaf, conch, fish, and traditional sides like mac-n-cheese, rice and beans, and of course, Johnny Cakes. Chicken BBQ roasted whole... More

It took longer to find the place, than it did to get our order!! We'd eaten there before, so we knew what the quality was. They are still number one!

this is a little shack on the side of the road but the cars will show you it isn't a plain little chicken shack. The locals were lined up as well as people like us waiting to get stuff to go to the airport. If you are going to eat order the daily specials because they are already cooked and... More

Really good rotisserie chicken. Local eatery, pick up to go or eat there. Bar available. Good chicken, large portion. They were very helpful in helping us order since it was our first time.

It is a small wood shack by the road with great service and great food. Very tasty and confy! My husband had the bbq ribs with spiced rice and beans. It was delicious. The best cole slaw I have had in a long time. But the Johnny Cakes were my favorite part, they are perfectly browned, soft warm arepas. If... More

One of the best places to try local cuisine on St. Croix. Great place to hang eat, hang out and relax with friends.

The chicken shack was recommended by family and friends. I truly enjoyed the food. Bring cash if you visit. They do not take credit cards. Columbia, Maryland
