Good BBQ

Wife and I visited for an early dinner. We ordered couple beers and the BBQ chicken and rib plates. They come with a choice of two sides. We had rice and beans and coleslaw. Rib were fall off the bone and covered in delicious BBQ sauce. The chicken was great as well. Prices were okay and... read more

We were looking for easy take out to have back at the condo, and bbq chicken and ribs usually fits the bill. The ribs and chicken were just covered in sauce. Too much for me. The sides were good, rice and beans, coleslaw, pasta salad. For 15 each you get 4 ribs and two pieces of chicken, with two sides.... More

We did take out for our group. Chicken, ribs and mahi. I liked the ribs. Others liked the mahi though I thought it was so so. Chicken was okay. My husband liked the rice and beans. It made for a fine enough meal. There was nothing exceptional about the meal but also nothing bad either. It worked for what we... More

Ultra casual, cash only. Don't be afraid, as it's very local appearing, and the food is nothing fancy but it's the same as always...lots of great BBQ sauce on your choice of meats (or fish if they haven't run out) with a simple combo of chosen sides. Great for takeaway, too. And they sell their sauce now, too, at the... More

The food was outstanding. Ribs and chicken we had as a group of 14 was very good. Beer selection was limited and inconvenient that they do not accept credit cards but great food

A good meal at a good price. We stop here on every visit... even if we have to split a meal just so we can say we tasted it. Dont expect anything even remotely fancy... just a good meal served by some good people.

Great casual Caribbean style bbq that doesnt break the bank. Service was a bit cold, but they were prompt.

I'm all about local food when traveling and was recommended to try this place via one of the locals! This is the place to go! Definitely a hole in the wall and far from fancy but really good stuff! My boyfriend and I both had the ribs and chicken & I will tell you neither one of us left hungry!... More

Loved the ribs and chicken! The best BBQ on the island! The food is cheap too. Very causal you can even get take out. You get a lot of food for your buck!

Uncle Joe's does not disappoint ! Coming back from a snorkel trip in the BVI's the smell of Uncle Joe's BBQ is the best smell ever. We had the Chicken and Ribs dinner with rice and corn. The price is extremely reasonable and half the allure is that it's one of those hole in the walls that you can't afford... More
