Eat at Ziggy's and Get Gas
I have to admit, I didn't want to like this place. I used to come to this location (previously known as Smokey's) for years to eat great local food and enjoy a laid back vibe... While getting gas, of course. But then the previous West Indian owner moved away to Antigua only to be replaced by a statesider. I thought my days of liming at the solitude gas station with so many other locals and eating great West Indian fare were over. I couldn't have been more wrong. I'd say the new owner has gone out of his way to make Ziggy's an active and positive member of the local community, but everything he's done just has this natural feel to it. Like he's not even trying, he just IS a part of the community. Local foods like roti, johnny cake, and more still find their home at Ziggy's. Plus now they're accompanied by frequent charity events, eating contests, concerts, and even dance competitions... All at an awesome gas station. It may seem odd to suggest stopping by a gas station, but you'd be missing a great new addition to Crucian life without a visit to this libation station.
