We always go to Smokey Joes when in Aruba! This past time in Sept the ribs were so fatty and unenjoyable ! Waitress laughed it off and said this batch was from Holland..

Smokey Joe's in a great place for Ribs and Chicken. Ribs are outstanding. Great Ribs and Chicken Combo plate. Gets crowded but plenty of seating.

This is a great restaurant! The location is good with seats on the sidewalk. The service was wonderful, the waiter not only took excellent care of us he kept us laughing. I had the BBQ pork sandwich and my husband had the burger. Would definitely have again!

Very good service and good food!! I had the burger which was cooked perfectly! Boyfriend had AYCE ribs and said the first portion was more than enough! He said the ribs were very tasty!!

This is a barbecue place among other things and it is way overrated. My wife had the famous baby back ribs and I also sampled them. I had the grouper. Neither of our meals were anything special, although they were not terrible, just average. Service was slow.

Located right on the main street and its open so you can see everyone walking by. The roof however doesn't have much air flow and we found it a bit hot under the roof. New England themed bar with police badges from all over those states. Lots of sports memorabilia as well from New England/Boston. Drinks were great, Cheese Fries... More

My family and I loved Somkey Joe's!!! We left stuffed and happy! We tried some of everything, the fried grouper, jerk chicken, the full rack with all the sauces and dry rub flavors was ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! The home fries, rice & beans and black beans are highly recommended. GO & ENJOY!!

Thank LaRissa L
