We get off the ferry and we’re starving. We walk towards the Jeep rental and some wonderful aroma grabs us. Yes it’s Uncle Joe’s! Eat here. It’s the real deal. Super convenient and did I mention good!

Ate here after Margarita Phil’s was incredibly rude to us. We were happy they were, as this food was excellent! Highly recommend!

We had a little of everything. Ribs, chicken, pulled pork, rice and beans. The place is a gem and you could easily pass it up except you can smell the food cooking. It is very small with a few tables. Great spot for lunch

Spent time on the island with family - all of us are from Texas, so we know BBQ! Uncle Joe's was as good as some from home. My brother-in-law and I stopped around 11:30 to place an order and were told the grill hadn't been...fired up yet so beware, island time applies! We were still able to order and walked around the city to wait. (Stopped in The Tap Room at Mongoose Junction to cool our heels for a while.) We eventually staggered back to Uncle Joe's around 1:00 and had just a 20 minute or so wait while our order finished cooking. We took the food back to the villa and couldn't resist sampling while driving. Had a selection of chicken and brisket, and sides. All very tasty!More

Great chicken and ribs for eat in or take out with sides that are also very good. Reasonable prices. We've been there many times and is a great casual restaurant.

We picked up some chicken and ribs to bring back to our villa tonight. I had the ribs and my wife had the chicken but we had some of each other’s. They were tasty and plentiful as usual. Always a favorite when we are on...island.More

Second trip back to Uncle Joes for ribs this month and just as happy the second time as the first. Their ribs and chicken are so delicious and fall off the bone. You can watch Joe cook lots of delicious BBQ food on that little...grill. Started stopping by Uncle Joes 10 years ago and make sure I get back there several times during our 5-6 week stays on island. Keep up the great cooking.More
