BEST CHICKEN THAT I EVER HAD!

We all agreed that this was some of the best chicken that we ever had. We went for dinner and had no problem getting a table. It is a very busy place for to-go orders as well. 50/50 locals and visitors.

REALLY wanted to like this place. After all the reviews, we were so excited to eat here. And then so disappointed. Our food was cold. I don't mean cool. Cold - as in it felt like it was taken out of the refrigerator and put on our box. We were on a time crunch and it had already taken awhile... More

My husband and I ordered a whole chicken with sides and it was very delicious seasoned to perfection. The season rice is very tasty. I tried the cow foot soup that was just ok but everything else was very good. For tourist have cash on hand they don't take credit cards at all.

I LOVE Chicken Shack! My boyfriend and I go to Chicken Shack at least once a week. They have the most moist chicken I have ever had. It's got great smokey flavor, their seasoned rice is to die for, and their BBQ sauce is what makes the meal my favorite! I always ask for extra :). EVERYONE needs to go... More

After many years we finally decided to see what all the buzz was about. I should have checked out the menu on line as you wait in line to order and it was very crowded. I could not read the menu which was painted on the back wall. I just ordered the 1/2 chicken with slaw and my husband got... More

We heard about this diamond in the rough from one of our friends that traveled to St. Croix with us. She had heard about them from Martha Stewart. With that said we stopped by on Saturday (our last day on the island) to see what all the fuss was about! When we arrived the line was 10 deep by mostly... More

Want to get away from the resorts and experience St. Croix with the locals? La Reine Chicken Shack is the place to go. Our group had the lobster, shrimp, chicken, ribs, and Johnnycake. So much food and so good. One note of advice....they're on island time. Your dinner will be ready when it's ready. Relax and have another drink, the... More
