My husband and I randomly ended up at this small, open-air grill joint and absolutely LOVED it. We were greeted warmly, started off with two beers, and when our salmon and chicken/beef combo plates arrived we were in heaven! The best BBQ I've ever tasted, and the corn on the cob tasted like straight-up corn bread. We will definitely be... More

Every time we've been to St John and walked past here, my husband says how great it smells and that we should try it. For whatever reason, we hadn't until this recent trip. Now I know what we've been missing all this time! Read some reviews that said to order you food ahead as takeout as service may not be... More

My husband and I ate here in September, and the locals always raved about this place, but I was not impressed. The lady kinda had an attitude and the ribs were baked, they were not from the grill, it could be because we came during off season, but I was not impressed. It was o.k.

We stopped after enjoying a wonderful day at Cinnamon Bay. We had a great meal with nice island atmosphere. The ribs were worth the trip. The coleslaw was excellent. Don't get the corn unless it is early in the day. Ours was way too overdone to the point of being mushy. Still enjoyed our meal.

Do yourself favor and stop by for the ribs. They were some of the best I have ever had and they area bargain. I would getting your own drinks from across the street, as the drink selection is slim.

Love uncle joes. Always the same. The best ribs anywhere. Prices haven't changed over the years. Prices don't change much either. Not very friendly but always take it to go!

What an amazing little place. Huge portions of the most delicious tender BBQ I've ever had. Careful with the mixed drinks, there very strong. The chicken and ribs were unbelievably good as well as all the sides; macaroni salad, corn, rice and beans, cold slaw. Defiantly highly recommended!

While there are several options for BBQ we chose Uncle Joes. The chicken was tender and juicy and the ribs were fall off the bone good! Portions were generous.
