Our taxi drive dropped us off at this location after we asked for a good place to have lunch. The service was great and friendly. The food was excellent and the drinks nice a cold which was welcome on a hot summer day. We enjoyed jerk chicken, beans and rice and fresh cold rum punch to wash it down.

We were on the Rainbow tour trolley, it was great! We stopped on this one way street along the coast and got to quickly (20 minutes) order food. We had sweet potatoes fries (good but could use seasoning) and conch fritter. They were 6 for $2 and about the size of a hush puppies from captain ds. Very tasty! Fun... More

Barbie's was a fun quick lunch while visiting Grand Turk on a day trip. Service was fabulous and the food was delicious. We were just doing a little walking around the island when the smell kept drawing us in. Barbecue chicken with peas and rice was size able enough to share with my 7 year old and so tender it...

If you are in Grand Turk one of the must visit places to eat! We wanted to try different places since our stay is only for two nights. We were looking for a place to have dinner and someone suggested this place. And it was great! Glad we came here.

The grilled conch here was very well seasoned and had a great flavor. Their conch fritters and cracked conch were also very good. Food was fresh and had great local flare.

We had our last meal here before leaving. We heard raves about the coconut shrimp. Unfortunately it was not great. In fact it was very greasy and bland. The peas and rice were [without a doubt] leftover from the day before (we heard her microwave it). It was dry and bland (we had plenty of peas and rice while there... More

Are you kidding me with these "excellent" reviews?! Seriously, the only reason someone likes this place is that their only and/or favorite seafood is from Long John Silvers. If you don't know what LJS is, it is a fast food chain that sells fried second-grade seafood. This place specializes in fried seafood and it's not good at that either. Was... More

Great fast service - great cheeseburgers and the owner is just lovely. We also had the conch salad which was different but very refreshing.

We ate here a few times during our trip to Grand Turk. We liked their outdoor patio, the atmosphere, and the burgers. A good casual place to grab dinner.
