I've been going to St. John for over 10 years and always enjoy eating at Uncle Joe's. Chicken and Ribs a great and very filling meals. Very good value. The same ladies have been working there since i started eating at Uncle Joe's.

We go to St. John and least once a year. We always make sure we either have dinner at or take out from Uncle Joe's. Not only is it great food but what a fun place to people watch!!

Have been stopping at Uncle Joes for over 10 years. The best/simplest purest form of good island ribs and chicken. Extremely reasonable and located so you can watch the street life.

Along with barbecue chicken and or ribs, you get two sides. Uncle Joes fills your plate full of good. Barbecue is delicious, and the price is the best on the island.

Uncle Joe's is a must do in Cruz Bay. Great good, right in the middle of all the excitement downtown.
