We've been to Joe's before on a previous stay on St. John and this was the most memorable - because it was that delicious - meal that we've ever had on an island. They are beef ribs and they are heavenly. Not to mention that the rice and beans are also top notch. The thought of Joe's has stayed with us and we've talked about it a number of times over the past 3-4 years. Well, this year brought us back into town (BVI's) and we just had to have our Joe's. We took a ferry over to St. John for all of three hours, with Joe's being our main purpose. So happy that we took the trip because it was worth it. Once again, the BBQ ribs and rice and beans did not disappoint!!! Until we meet again....

Small stand on the corner of town, reasonably priced, we were shocked at how very good the food was. Great take out to eat on the beach, or deck of your hotel room. Very good.

We always look forward to our BBQ from Uncle Joes but not happy this year. The ribs were very fatty.

The BBQ is solid and consistent every time. BBQ sauce has a tangy and good spice flavor. The locals get priority on food service. Call in advance so you don't have to wait.

Stopped here after a long bvi boating day. It was really close to the national park dock. Only took a few minutes and we were on our way. The food was yummy and it was a pretty good price. We would def go back.
