This is a small take-out only establishment. We ordered a brisket plate and a half chicken dinner. The chicken and potato salad were good but the brisket was just okay. I'm from Texas so probably a little picky.

A half of chicken with rice, beans, slaw and a roll all for just ten bucks. Plenty to feed two! Chicken was BBQ to perfection and not dried out. We will most likely eat there again while here on the island.

Good, but charge too much for a take away, and hours of operation are not consistent. When they sell out they just close. That could be anytime. I've went there many times (and it isn't easy to get anywhere on this island without a car). And they were already closed.

We saw this place on a YouTube video and had to stop by. We got there around 7:00 pm and all that was left was brisket - exactly what we wanted. The staff were super friendly and the brisket was top notch. This is not a set down restaurant but you cannot get better takeout. These guys are open until... More

This place is in the same shopping plaza as Duffy's Love Shack in Red Hook... The ribs and Chicken were superb. You get a main (chick, ribs or beef brisket) and 2 sides (potato, rice or cole slaw). If you want the Brisket... get there early because they run out quick.

They had a trailer set up on the water side of Veterans Way along the waterfront in Charlotte Amalie. We got into St. Thomas late and saw it on the way to the Bluebeards Castle. We had the chicken, rice and cole slaw. The price was really reasonable and the portions large. The two of us split the meal. The... More

Read some great reviews so I thought this might be good. Sides all very bland. Brisket good, ribs okay. Chicken very dry. Not too expensive, but not great food

This is located on the main street of Red Hook, easy to find. It is a fast food stand (very tall gray building) and you order at the window as you stand in the lot. We ordered the combo meal with chicken, ribs, and beef. The beef was my favorite! Very, very tender. Melt in your mouth. The combo came... More

We saw this store front on one of the side streets while doing our laundry at a laundry mat before our trip home. The smells emanating from the restaurant were heavenly. When it was time for dinner we went back but it was closed. We drove around trying to find something else but stumbled upon a road side trailer that... More
