Hands down my favorite spot to eat on STX. Everything was so so good and priced just right. They are very busy, especially for the lunch hour, but still manage to provide good service. Best potato salad and garlic sauce anywhere. We stopped for something...More

Visited here on two separate occasions, both very busy. Food is out of this world with the most succulent BBQ chicken I’ve ever tasted. Great staff. Lively friendly atmosphere. If you only eat in one place on the island, make this the place!!

La Reine Chicken Shack is a gathering spot and practically an attraction on the Island, Famous for its roasted chicken and johnny cakes, baked macaroni and more. Just good food. Stop in or take out lunch or dinner.

I don’t waste time writing reviews but all things considered, this is apropos! We arrived at 1650 via a 90 dollar cab fare from The Buccaneer Resort round trip. The chicken was dry as hell!! Paid 45 for 3 people so the total bill for...More

Love this place. My wife and I get food here every time we visit. The price is VERY inexpensive but the trade off is picnic tables and plastic forks. If that bothers you then skip. Otherwise the food is great.
