Really Great Burger!!

Located in the middle of high rise hotels, undercover or outside dining. Our service was very good and we all ordered burgers, and everyone loved them, We ate outside and we enjoyed that. Even saw a horse and carriage ride by! Great value.

Our group of 6 ventured to Smokey Joe's for dinner and I wish we had kept going. I ordered the jerk chicken with rice & beans, picture a plate arriving with a half chicken with a thick, brown sauce poured over part of it, then a large molded scoop of white rice with a large helping of black beans in...

Real barbecue food and sauce. Best meal we had. The food did not upset my stomach ( like it did everywhere else in Aruba) and offered the best value for the money.

While walking down Palm Beach, I saw a sign here advertising the biggest burger in Aruba. Obviously my interest was piqued. Turns out-- it is a giant burger. It's your traditional hamburger with all of the fixings, plus a big helping of BBQ pork. The BBQ was fantastic. They use a sweeter BBQ sauce, which I love. My wife enjoyed... More

Food comes in 2 minutes. Not that hot. Kinda dry. Very $$$. I had chicken that wasn't two bad. My wife had ribs which were on the dry side. Corn on the cob was a week old and the fries tasted like micro waved frozen. The slaw was ok. Overall not worth the money. Could have been very good with... More

This is the best BBQ joint in Aruba, with great prices also. We did not eat in but did order take out for our rental house. Everything was cooked to perfection. The only problem we had was when we came back to the house we noticed one of the meals we ordered was ,missing. We went back and they gave... More

This is a casual, outdoor restaurant. It has a fun atmosphere and is in the middle of the action on the strip in Palm Beach. Famous for their ribs.

This place was recommended by one of the security guards at our hotel. The food was awesome, some of our party tried the ribs the meat fell off of the bone! I tried to pulled pork and it was delish! Good meal and well priced. Get there early around 6 and you will have no problem getting a seat. If... More

Good food & service .Priced well. They bring your food out REALLY fast and the place was packed .So if you are in NO hurry and want to enjoy some drinks as I . Wait before you order dinner because once you order your food will be out 5 minutes later and that is no EXAGGERATION.
