When it comes to eating good, we all know that some of the best food doesn’t come in fancy five-star buildings.

On the lush island of Antigua, one of the two islands that make up the Caribbean nation of Antigua & Barbuda, there’s a tiny roadside restaurant with a reputation for food so delicious, there are long lines every time they open.

Cavells Cook Shop in the capital city of St.John’s is known for having some of the best local cuisine on the island. The family-owned establishment has been on the island for about 19 years. The food is made with love, nearly every dish blessed by the owner herself, and it keeps locals and tourists alike coming back. 

In this episode of Grio Goes To: Antigua,” theGrio’s Deputy Editor Natasha S. Alford visits Cavell’s to see if the food lives up to the hype!
