    We always make a point to visit Smokey Joe's every trip. We love their ribs and enjoy sitting outside people watching. This is generally our first night dinner as it is casual and quick after a long day of traveling.

    We go once a year, over Easter, so it's been almost a year ago. The bathrooms were older looking, but not dirty. I'll check the bathrooms out, before we're seated this trip.

    Druif Beach, Downtown, our condo at Divi Golf and Beach resort, the pool there, Smokey Joes BBQ, Salt and Pepper, Mi Dushi Bagels, El Gaucho, Pizza Bob's...everything!
    We ate at Iguana Joe's, and I remember being really warm. No seats avail by the railing and so we were inside, no air that I can remember, no breeze reaching us, and in that atmosphere, no appetite anymore! I don't remember what I ate, so it wasn't memorable for sure. Location is nice.

    Smokey Joe's is in our top five places on the island b/c we LOVE their ribs! I contend (as does my wife) that they are the best we've had! Key Lime pie is unreal as well! Happy hour is pretty good, I do recall 5-6 pm as well. Lots of people watching as mentioned.

    My vote, if you choose one or the other would be for Smokey Joe's.

    Thanks Kathy. I think we'll do Smokey Joes for our 1st night on Palm Beach. After reading all the reviews of the ribs, that sounds good for a casual night.
