Food was excellent! We ordered the all-you-can eat special, which includes pulled pork BBQ, a 1/4 of BBQ chicken, brisket, three sides and bread. The sides rotate daily, and we had cole slaw, beans and corn on the cob. It was so much food on the first round there was no way I was ordering more - I didn't even... More

I went to the BCL tonight for the all you can eat BAR B Q. It was better today than it was when I ate it there in the past. They must have stopped using the sauce they did in the past that I didnt care for. So I am glad they did. And the bartender (cali) i referrenced in... More

We made a stop here to enjoy something different on the island. Once you find the entry way in the alley, you walk in to another world that is not St. John. Beware of drunken people who may be shooting darts as you enter the restaurant. The food is satisfying. The meat is tasty, the sides pure and simple, and... More

Quite possibly the best brisket I've ever had. The Barefoot Cowboy attains a smokey flavor unparalleled by other smokehouses I've been to. Servings sizes were ample, with smoked meats accompanied by beans, a light but tasty slaw, and bread. It's a small setting with a fantastic view overlooking Cruz Bay. We were there during Carnival and I had a fantastic... More

We always love stopping by for happy hour and whatever is on the smoker. Wayne always makes you feel welcome and makes some great Texas style BBO. It is also the only place to find some country music in town.

My mom and step-dad heard about Barefoot Cowboy earlier this year while they were in Barbados telling a fellow traveler they were headed to my wedding in St. John in July. He told them they MUST go to Barefoot Cowboy for real BBQ. We made an attempt in the early afternoon for lunch but soon learned we were about 3... More

If your craving BBQ food, head to this restaurant. The appetizers were good as well. Pain in the neck to use bathroom as you need to borrow large spoon key to use it.
