We have been in Kauai for 2 weeks and have driven by many times. We finally stopped and the kids really enjoyed the food! They were hesitant at first as it is a roadside restaurant. Everything was wonderful! Can't wait to stop again!

We had the sampler plate, and a chicken sandwich (make sure you get the coupon for a free chicken sandwich from the coupon books). There was enough food for my wife and I to have 2 meals (we're not big eaters). Their cole slaw is exceptional, their beans tasty and unique. We really enjoyed their food

Based on Tripadvisor ratings, we started our Kauai vacation today with a trip to Chicken in a Barrel. As Texans, we feel we know something about BBQ, and this place is just super. We had the sampler plate. All the meats were top-notch--really outstanding. The price was reasonable. Cole Slaw--for those who like a really fresh slaw without the sweet drippy dressing, this is an excellent version. Beans: A to A+. We just really enjoyed it. The service was fast, relaxed, competent. The place is a stand with picnic tables, but also with cool added touches, like a sink for washing hands before or after. Thanks to all those great reviewers. We are here for a week and are already planning our second visit.

The food is great! I only wish that I didn't get so full so I could eat more. It was so delicious! You can take your food to go and walk across the parking lot to the beach or stay and eat on the patio.

We stopped here after hiking sleeping giant based on the other positive reviews I'd seen on trip advisor. This was the perfect place for our family of 6 to stop while we were all hot and sweaty and not really fit for a fancy place. Even though this place is right by the road, we got a comfy patio set table with plenty of shade and we were very comfortable and loved our experience. The kids wanted to make sure that I mention that we got epic service from Pepper. Epic might even be an understatement. That guy is awesome. We tried a little bit of everything and just shared it all. The chicken and the ribs are a MUST! The sides were nothing to write home about, but the fall off the bone tasty meat and ridiculously great service more than make up for that. Give this place a try!
