The Barefoot Cowboy Lounge in Cruz Bay on the beautiful island of St. John in the USVI is servin' up some of the best "Texas Style" BBQ you'll ever eat! You'll be clamoring to "come getcha sum" once you've had our tasty fixins offered up from our Barefoot Daily Menu. We offer smoked brisket & pork, pulled pork, sausage & chicken. You can choose from the Outlaw, Cowboy Combo, Redneck Sandwich or the Barefoot Nachos just to name a few. The Hillbilly Sliders - you're gonna love Wayne's Frito Pie!

Good BBQ!

Barefoot Cowboy lounge is a good place to grab a beer and some bbq. It has a nice view to watch all that is going on the street below. The service was very friendly and the pulled pork sliders were very tasty.

We stopped in this place on a recent vacation to St. John. We were very excited about some southern BBQ in paradise! We have some really great BBQ at home but had never tried Texas BBQ. Loved the concept and name of the place.. As we walked in, we noted that we were literally the only customers in the place,... More

The Barefoot Cowboy Lounge is an average BBQ joint as compared to BBQ joints in the US. As for the islands, the food is above average (especially if you are looking to get away from fried foods.) We initially tried the "All you can eat Tuesday" and I would say it was worth the $20 cash. The chicken legs were... More

We thought we would get so e good BBQ, however I found it to be overpoweringly smokey and the corn was soggy and beans bland and unseasoned. The gentleman working there was not very friendly and acted bothered to even serve us. When my husband payed for the meal he was not even offered change back, the employee just kept... More

We wandered in to the Barefoot Cowboy early in our visit to STJ, and ended up coming back for a 2nd time! The owner and chef Wayne recommended that if we enjoyed ourselves, we needed to visit for All You Can Eat night, and we certainly weren't disappointed! There was disagreement at our table over which of the flavorful meats... More

The restaurant is cash only. The owner is not friendly and the food was nothing to write home about, at all. We were sadly disappointed.

We were in St. John in the summer of 2013 and ate at the Barefoot Cowboy twice. We'll be back to St. John, and we will go back to Barefoot Cowboy at least once on the trip. It's great barbeque.

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
