The best Lobster roll sandwich ever! Great local beer. Seating for only about 25 people, outside under a tent but great food and drinks. There motto is Drive Left, Drink right. When you visit the Island you'll understand.

This consists of a food truck by the side of the road, with picnic tables under a plastic tarp. We loved watching the colorful birds at the feeder, and the lizards on the cactus. The bottled water came deliciously icy cold. The blackened fish was flavorful and the hot dog topped with pulled pork got two thumbs up as well.... More

This is a great spot for lunch or an early dinner (as of our visit it was open 11am-6pm). Two had lobster rolls, and loved them, we shared the pork nachos and enjoyed those, and I had the fish taco which was good. The mixed rum drinks were also very good, probably the best I had on the island. They... More

We ordered T3 - The Tourist Trap Taco (pulled pork) and Fish Taco. Both tacos were delicious and mouthwatering, probably best fish taco I had on the island. The waitress was nice, but the service felt a bit rushed as the place was fully occupied and could easily use two waitresses. I would ranked this place 5 stars, but sitting... More

We've been here several times and haven't been disappointed. The staff is so nice and friendly and the food is great. You can't go wrong with the pulled pork sandwich. I've heard that the nachos are also very good.

Food was great. Hung out with the chef and Nancy our waitress, they were great! Just a small place on the side of the road on the way to Salt Pond Bay and Rams Head trail, BUT definitely worth the stop!!

The Boom Booms were fantastic as well as the pulled pork tacos. Even though it was very busy, Mary gave everyone the attention they deserve.

It's a tiny spot on the corner on the way to Salt Pond Bay. Really good fish and pork tacos. Homemade salsa is yummy. There's only a handful of tables outside. Very homey and yummy. The owner and waitress were very friendly and warm too

A pleasant, relaxing, and homey-feeling roadside with a terrific view, and flocks of sugar birds to serenade you. The pulled pork sandwich and a cold drink really hit the spot. No pretensions, just a good little roadside stand with tons of character. One of our group had the lobster roll which he has had there before and he was not... More

This place is easy to drive by, but worth a stop if you do. The service is friendly and menu great for lunch. I would recommend the fish tacos with the house made tomatillo salsa!
