Be sure you don't walk by this small little unassuming joint in St. John! We were eating out at another restaurant and heard a couple enjoying some drinks that they were heading here for dinner. We hit here for a late dinner so we missed some specials like the ribs and conch fritters. However, we both had the chicken, cole slaw and rice and beans. It was all amazing and trust me we are BBQ snobs being from Texas. The sauce is just right!

This is not a place you go for ambiance, however the people watching from this corner is always a little interesting. The service was typical for an island eatery and it just part of life on the island. We've learned just to embrace and enjoy. Like another reviewer said ti was a nice break from the other higher end eateries in town. This will be a place we stop multiple times next time we are back. Our reccomendation would be to get here a little earlier, as we came in right before 9 pm after a late evening on the beach. My husband was dreaming of the chicken the other night!

I have lived on St John for 18 yrs, Uncle Joe's is the best BBQ hands down- service is a bit slow but worth the wait. His BBQ sauce is addictive :)

Wonderful food. Nothing much too fancy with regards to tables and ambiance, but the food made up for it.
