We had the ribs here which fall off the bone! Oh and the Coleslaw is probably the best I ever had. They put raisins in it! So delicious! Worth the wait!

We love Smokey Joe's and make it a point to eat here whenever we go to Aruba. They have something on the menu for everyone. Seating is outdoors under a pergola so it is best to eat around 7 when the sun is going down....More

Great place to eat, but service is a little slow. Food was OK, atmosphere was friendly. I would go back.

Restaurant conveniently located on the strip. The speciality is spare ribs although you can order other dishes. Portions are a good size and price is very reasonable. Great restaurant for couples or families.

The smell of the ribs reeled us right in. They were very good and the jerk wings were very good as well!

My son & I loved the ribs! We both needed to hose the BBQ off. I had the pulled chicken as well, which was moist & flavorful. The sides were good, but not great. Only reason I didn't give them a 5.

Hello, We would like to come to your restaurant when we are visiting Aruba. I am writing to find out if you use any Peanuts/Pinda's in your dishes, desserts or sauces? We have someone in our family with a life threatening peanut allergy. Thank you for answering my question. Suzanne

Unfortunately, I really cannot be sure that they do not use peanuts but I can tell you that I didn't see or taste anything with peanuts in it.
