Awesome ribs, corn bread and mac&cheese in a lush tropical setting. Smoked chicken and pork were also finger licking delicious. Water melon martinis and a good assortment of cold beers. Definitely recommend.

Really fun restaurant on Vieques- excellent smoked chicken and great cocktails. Always a fun atmosphere at the bar. Wear bug spray though as it is outdoor. Highly recommended!

Dinner was excellent - mostly barbecue choices. Portions were large. We were joined by a very sweet cat. There seemed to be many locals dining the night we were there.
