There are a few branches of Chef's & Barbecue around Tobago, including one one Wilson Road, Scarborough's main commercial strip. There is another location just across the street from the ferry terminal.
At lunch you can get a wide range of home-style local cooking: braised chicken, oxtail stew, fried of stewed fish, pork chops, and a range of regional vegetable choices - fried plantain, breadfruit, root vegetables (dasheen, yam,...), side salads. There might be a very filling 'soup', virtually a stew.
The food is authentic, but heavy, and it isn't expensive (about TT$40). The service is typical of most fast-food places on the island: slow, remote and disengaged. Potentially bewildering until you realize that it isn't about you personally. Everyone is treated equally. There's air-conditioning, and you can eat there, but there is no "ambiance" in the classic sense -- although it's a great place to watch the local Tobago lunch time crowd. The bathrooms are to be avoided.
