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.

there is a wide variety of dishes to choose from. Greater variety such as macaroni pie tends to be available around dinner. Pork dishes sell out quickly. The food is tasty and worth the price. The restaurant is clean and they have moved to a larger location in Crown Point.

They have several locations (Scarborough and crown point) and are open quite late. Service is ok (nothing special) and they are open a bit late. Food is good and consists of local food with a variety of meat (fish, pork, beef and chicken). More like a fast food atmosphere, there is dine-in and take out. The branch on carrington street sometimes often doesn't have available seats during lunch and dinner. Watch the calories.

food is good. tastes good. lots of variety. within 2 weeks i went there maybe 3-4 times...and everytime there was something different...chicken, grilled fish and chips of course were always there. usually there was choice of 6-7 side dishes and 4-5 mains, beef, pork, chicken, fish, lamb.
like in most places in tobago, you get huge amount of food. i m sure it is fresh, but they pre-cook it, so sometimes it isnt really hot, just a bit warm, especially when you eat there not during the busy hours in the evening...or it was just bad luck for me, cause of the low season. but beside the fact that the food was 2 times not really steaming hot, i fully recommend it.

This is the Tobago version on Subway - build your own meal! If you're a bit funny about food they serve pigs tails mixed in with an option rice! Staff weren't particular helpful in explaining the food and how it works, plus we asked for Jerk Chicken, which was on the menu, but they looked at us like we'd just asked for Mermaid before saying they didn't have any!
