We were excited to try this BBQ before we got to our condo at Sapphire. We had it our first night there and couldn't agree more with the rave reviews! We tried to stop in a 2nd time and unfortunately they cut their hours back during the summer. Bummer for us!

“almost didn't stop-would have been a tragedy.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

We had seen the listing for Off the Grid in one of the St. Thomas pamphlets, so went to check it out, thinking we were going to a "restaurant". When we saw it was just a food truck parked at an overlook area with some picnic tables and tarps, we just pulled away. But, later in the week, I found so many rave reviews here on tripadvisor, that we decided to give it a try. The food was some of the BEST we had the entire trip (better than some of the higher dollar restaurants we frequented)! And, it was, without question, the BEST value. The "all-you-can-eat" was only $15.00, and included choices of pulled pork, chicken, ribs, sausage, all delicious. The sides of Caribbean slaw, grilled sweet potato, etc. were delicious. And...the view overlook was one of the prettiest vistas on the island. Don't hesitate to enjoy this experience! You will be glad you tried something a little different.

“All You Can Eat BarBQ from a Food Truck!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

I had several people tell me to stop at the bright green food truck at the turn in to Sapphire Beach. So, I did. Yum-O!! The pulled pork sandwich with sides was huge! And...delicious! One of the best bargains on the island. I recommend this spot to everyone. Plus...awesome view!

“Don't miss this stop!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

Mitch and 'D' took great care of us while we stopped for lunch last week. Just because this is a BBQ place don't discredit the side dishes! Cole slaw is fantastic, the rice and beans are out of this world and the view is killer! Every item on the BBQ is cared for individually. There isn't the 'One Sauce fits all' here at Off the grid. These guys even have a special rub for different items of chicken! The breast tastes completely different from the thigh and the briquette... The pork belly, the sausage, the ribs and the pulled pork sandwich. Don't miss this stop! Don't let the "lunch truck" fool you, these guys know what they are doing!

If you don't plan on staying but rather taking it back to your hotel, then order meat by the pound and get a veggie plate. That way you get a sampling of all the sides and some great BBQ.

My wife and I live here in St. Thomas and this is a regular weekly stop for us. I try to make it once a week at my lunch hour to dine on by far the best BBQ on island and amazing prices. You won't go hungry and you won't be disappointed.

Thanks Mitch and D for a great lunch. You guys rock!
