7 Av, San Pedro La Laguna, Guatemala
Smokin Joes BBQNavigating my way through San Pedro's market, Phil, a retired Canadian teacher visiting Guatemala since 1993, helped me out of a bartering jam. Phil invited me to lunch, and a place called Smokin' Joes. I accepted the invitation and we set off. I didn't intend, nor look forward to eating BBQ in Guatemala, however, I was pleasantly surprised with Smokin' Joes. The food was legit, and the atmosphere gave off a vibe I could only describe as chill. Open only on Sundays in San Pedro, Smokin' Joes is a very popular place with a mix of locals and tourists. The space is an open courtyard: you have an area for ordering, an area for eating, an area for drinking, and an area for swimming. What more could you want? Check it out on Saturdays in Panajachel and on Sundays in San Pedro. http://smokinjoesanpedro.com/.
