Great. Nuff said. Get here early though, they WILL sell out. Try it all, you won't be disappointed. Remember, they are only open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

Only open on weekends and very popular so phone ahead or get there early. Good food at a reasonable price and a really friendly atmosphere. A perfect post dive hangout at the weekend.

really loved their ribs. A pity that they only open in the weekends. Very nice cozy place to eat in and not expensive.

It was that we go and the 6 of us were disappointed. The ribs are so tiny with not meat, the chicken skewers were hard and dry and the steaks didn't look like they were chargrilled and were very expensive. We were covered in bug bites and that didn't happen anywhere else during the week we were there. It was... More

we arrived at 5 till 6pm. We ordered the special with extra ribs over a gate. When they did open we sat at the bar for about 20 min. Cooked while you wait. By the time we left, we had to push through the crowd. Eat all but the bones. Bring lots of papper towels!

Highly recommend the Bobbajan's Special... Ribs, Chicken and Satay. The Satay is soaked in Thai peanut sauce....yuuuum. Economical and plenty of food. Two specials fed ourselves and our teenage son. Good thing they are only open on Fri, Sat and Sun. Othewise I would have gained 20lbs on the vacation!

Our hotel was able to make reservations for us last night at Bobbejan's. She said on a Sunday night it may be a long wait without one. We are staying at the Divi Flamingo and were able to walk to the restaurant. We were seated right away. Restaurant look like its in someone's backyard. Very cozy and comfortable. There's a... More

This is my second favorite BBQ rib place on the island. The ribs are coated with honey and very tasty. They are only open on Fridays and weekends. It will take 20 minutes or so to get your take out order but it is worth the wait.

Why fuss with barbecues and all that goes with it. Stop by here and pick up ribs and chicken satay with all the trimmings before heading to the beach.
