Smokey Joe’s offers excellent drinks and food, people watching on the patio make this a very entertaining restaurant/bar.
Bring your appetite when you visit, portions are generous.
We had Smokey Joe’s signature drinks, served in 16oz Mason jars.
Aruba Ariba (coecoei Aruban liquor, 151 rum, crème de banana, vodka, orange, cranberry, pineapple juices)
Kunuku Moonshine (light rum, spiced rum; keylime rum, 151 rum and more rum, fruit juices), this potion has 5 shots of liquor.
Plan on a designated driver or take a taxi if you imbibe, those drinks are delicious and potent.
The Baby Back ribs are tender and delish: the full rack of Joe’s Dry Rub was finger licking good, not too spicy, served with home fries and slaw. Rack and a half is available for big appetites.
The Blackened Wahoo fish with Aruban sauce (tomatoe, bell pepper, onion, crioyo sauce) was superb with rice and beans and coleslaw. I thought the Aruban sauce was the perfect accompaniment to the mild tasting fish.
Few but tasty deserts: we enjoyed a simple flan and ice cream. If you aren’t into deserts, don’t count the calories and have another drink .
