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.

They do not take credit cards. There is an ATM a short walk from there. We have not been there in the summer, so I am not sure if they are open in August. We typically get 1 dinner for each adult. Their dinners include 2... More
