“love it!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014 via mobile

Just left this place after a day so sightseeing. We wanted a good, quick dinner and that is exactly what we got. No frills, no 30 minute wait, and no expensive dinner. Just a relaxed atmosphere, great food and great value!

“Amazing chicken and ribs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014 via mobile

Beautiful half chickens, smoked ribs, big portions.

Totally unglamorous, very much a locals spot. Some of the best food I ate on the island.

“Don't miss it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

We stopped here for lunch on our first day on St. Croix. We were all feeling hungry and a bit cranky after the long trip and didn't really know what to expect. Needless to stay, this was one of the tastiest meals and best values in a week of eating on the island. Nothing pretentious here whatsoever, just simple, outdoor dining at its best. Friendly place and great local flavors. Highly recommended. Ribs, chicken, dirty rice, red beans fresh fish and fried plantains. Oh yes, and a cold beer to wash it all down. Yum!

“Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

Do not miss getting a meal from the Chicken Shack. The food is great, the portions are generous. If you are looking for ambiance this is not the restaurant for you. If you like simple, outdoor seating and don't mind waiting a little to put in your order you found the right spot!

“Great food, large portions!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

It's worth the wait - this place is very busy with lots of locals and tourists waiting for their takeout food. You can eat on site with a bar right next door too. The food is authentic and everything was delicious.
