Great ribs and chicken. Huge portions. Super reasonable prices. Fresh food and lots of it. Don't miss this incredible roadside grill. They are very very nice... locals first... but you get used to that. Get the platter... rice and beans and corn on the cob. Its a deal. Yummy bbq sauce .... We could have had it every day!!!

This little road side lolo has the best bbq. We picked up chicken, ribs, salad and sides and brought them back to our condo to enjoy on the balcony overlooking Simpson Bay. They were delicious and we were too full to finish them. We packaged them up for another night's snack.

The Chicken and rib dinners were superb! The Jerk flavors were incredible. My mouth is watering just writing this review. We will be back again!

Everyone raved about it so I was determined to try it this past trip. BBQ ribs were ok, I've had better on the island. Prices were a bit high for a roadside place.

We came upon this place last year and it's still there this year. Absolutely the best ribs on the island.

I'm coming to this Roadside grill for 4 years but still locals order before foreigners, If your willing to wait, this is the best roadside grill for lunch!

My husband and I stumbled upon this place and we are glad that we did. The 'orgasmic ribs' were wonderful and a fantastic price! They were out of the sides that I was able to eat (I am gluten free) so I couldn't try anything else. It always seemed busy!

I drove by this place a few times with the window down. The chicken and ribs being grilled smelled good and persuaded me to stop. Once I stopped the trouble started. The clientele is a mixture of locals and tourists. The staff are locals. When I went there, it was busy, but not crazy. Customers don't form a line or... More

Good ribs,chicken and fish. Usually something a little different like pigtails or goat on the menu everyday. We'll stop by while on the beach to get lunch. People are always friendly. Locals always hanging out and having a good time.
