Be sure you don't walk by this small little unassuming joint in St. John! We were eating out at another restaurant and heard a couple enjoying some drinks that they were heading here for dinner. We hit here for a late dinner so we missed some specials like the ribs and conch fritters. However, we both had the chicken, cole... More

I have lived on St John for 18 yrs, Uncle Joe's is the best BBQ hands down- service is a bit slow but worth the wait. His BBQ sauce is addictive :)

Wonderful food. Nothing much too fancy with regards to tables and ambiance, but the food made up for it.

This was the best barbeque that I have ever eaten (and I've eaten a lot). The portions were large, allowing us to share, and keeping prices down.

While recently vacationing on St John, we stopped at Uncle Joe's BBQ for a take-out dinner. Awesome! Limited menu but great food. The cole slaw was superb. Small restaurant with very limited seating and zero ambiance so plan on picking up to go. Food on St John is never cheap, but this was the best bargain we found!

Nice Caribbean street BBQ, great prices and large portions. Down at the waterfront where all the action is.
