This place was recommended to us as a good place to get some eats on our way to the hotel. The food was excellent and service was good. We ordered pork chops, shrimp alfredo, and sweet and spicy chicken wings. The food was solid all around. They have a food order window and a pick up window. Go to the... More

Love this place... You get a whole chicken and sides w/johnny cakes for under 15$$$$. They have great lunch specials. Just be ready eat well seasons chicken cooked right on the grill, fresh made sides and the Johnny's are still nice and warm. They also have music and plenty to drink in the evenings. This is one of my favorite... More

Went there after being told by everyone that this was the place to be. A little hard to find as the sign saying Chicken Shack is small and nobody told us it was called La Reine. It's across from the Pueblo grocery and was one of our favorite places on the island. $6.50 got you a 1/2 chicken with 2... More

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!
