** Congratulations Larry from The Tourist Trap! **

WINNER: Best Ribs on St. John, 2013

Stop by The Tourist Trap in Coral Bay, on your way to Salt Pond.


Hundreds of hungry residents and visitors showed up suprisingly on-time for the first annual St. John Rib Cook Off on Saturday, June 8, 2013, at 4:30pm.  Ten St. John restaurants competed for the title of Best Ribs on St. John and while all the entries were outstanding, Coral Bay's very own Larry from the Tourist Trap took home the biggest honor from 5 discriminating local judges. 

The first annual event was held in the rear parking lot of Mongoose Junction in Cruz Bay.  In addition to multiple rib options there was live entertainment, great raffle prizes and store "sidewalk sales" throughout the venue.  Food tickets quickly sold out, at only $1/rib, although visitors were reportedly still buying tickets, long after the ribs were gone.  This is why we love Love City!

All proceeds from the event will go directly to St. John Rescue to aid in the purchase and renovation of a permanent headquarters.  THANK YOU, ST. JOHN RESCUE!
