Well known spot for locals and tourists. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. Got the roasted chicken---yummy!! And the johnnycakes. They are my new favorite baked good. Cross between beignet, bread, doughnut, and roll. Hard to come up with just one that is similar. Nice crowd and very Cruzan parking (casual). Eat in or take out. Can't wait to try... More

If you want a fancy restaurant, this is not it. If you are hungry, want good food, at a great price this is it. Order at window and pickup and bring to your table. Big selection. We got 1/2 roasted chicken, rice and beans, small salad and a Johnny cake ( fried dough). With a beverage, about $12. A lot... More

This is worth the the trip to Centerline - the food is available eat in or take out. Great portions at reasonable prices. They have a full service bar and good parking. Always busy- Had the barbecue and meatloaf there on our last trip, would definitely recommend this for casual or take home!

This had good trip advisor reviews so we stopped and returned during our visit. The daily special is a great deal. The johnny cakes are wonderful and you just can't go wrong with pretty much any order. A must stop in my family's book.

We went on a Friday for a bit of a late lunch. I really wanted to try the local fish and plantains but they were out of both. Ended up with curried chicken and cassava as my side dish. So delicious but there was so much food I couldn't eat it all! We were disappointed that they seemed to be... More

La Reine Chicken Shack is the first place we went when we landed on the island. I couldn't wait to get the 1/2 chicken with rice and beans. The roasted chicken is delicious and fall off the bone tender. Their johnny cakes (fried, lightly sweet roll) are also pretty good. It's an open air restaurant with a bar attached. If... More

We tried this because of all the rave reviews. It was just okay. The portions were large, but it just didn't have the flair we were expecting.

Stopped here on the way to the airport. Definitely the local hangout. Local lunch crowd lined up at the bar. The rest of our group had the half-roasted chicken special (with baked beans, rice and black beans, and johnny cakes) for about $12. I opted for the pork ribs, which were fall off the bone tender and had great flavor.... More

An informal restaurant with culturally authentic and reliably tasty food. The menu is basic with some daily specials drawn from Crucian and Puerto Rican heritage with a splash of Taino native and African inspiration. The seasoned rice (arroz Guineo) is a must have, firm chewy texture with exotic infusions of east and west seasoning. The stewed red beans have percolated... More
