“Great Jerk Chicken, Great BBQ, Good Prices and Good Staff”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Our 1st time to Chinson, so we ordered an array of food and were NOT disappointed. They had $10 lunch specials which came with an entrée + 2 sides. The jerk chicken is amazing (am I in Jamaica?), the BBQ ribs are smokey and fall off the bone, and the shrimp is good too. The Mac n Cheese side is awesome; we also tried a special bread (cannot remember the name), but that was good too. We really wanted some of the brisket, but the owner explained that since everything is imported, the brisket has not been available for a few weeks - part of Island Life. Try them if you are heading to Taylor Bay or Sapodilla Bay - we actually ordered 2 additional plates of jerk chicken to take back to the rental home!

“Disappointed”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We went to Chinson Grill Shack based on TripAdvisor reviews and were disappointed. After reading the reviews and an article in a Local Tourist guide I was looking forward to some Island Barbeque. When we arrived we were told that 3/4 of the stuff on the menu (including all the BBQ items) were not available. As a matter of fact our entire first pass at ordering was not available. They told us if you wanted BBQ come back on Friday.

The food that we ended up ordering was OK, not great but OK.

I really wanted to like this place. The waitress was very pleasant and the owner came out and talked with us. They are very welcoming and friendly people. But I just couldn't get past not having many meal items available. Sorry I just don't get it.

“Great Dinning, Friendly Service”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Stopped in at Chinson's as returning customers during our trip on July 23 for Barbecue night! Everyone was completely satisfied with their meals and no one went hungry thats for sure! Huge portions at very reasonable prices, very accommodating staff that will change your meal to fit your needs. Two of our family members shared the meat platter and couldn't even put a dent in half of it as there was so much food! Loved the jerk chicken and the brisket. They have some of the best customer service we have ever seen, the owner even came out and introduced himself to all of the diners which we thought was very cool! For sure a must see during your trip to Provo!!

“Finger lickin good BBQ”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

Chinson's is located on the Leeward Highway, atop a hill, has some of the best BBQ on the island. They have invested in an enormous custom smoker, the ribs, brisket, jerk chicken and other slowly roasted meats can't be beat.
