Best ribs you've had for a long time

They are doing something right, that's for sure: we were going there everyday when they are open! Just can't have enough of Bobbejan's ribs. Takeaway and sitting on the sea front is the best idea for dinner. Enjoy folks!

Good food, not great. But good for a casual, not elaborate dinner. Service and price are good. Ribs are tasty. Fish is fresh and simple. Both recommended.

We have been to BobbeJan's many times. Usually the food is very good and the ambiance is relaxed. This time, not so much. The service was ok once we were seated but it took time just to get noticed even though it was not too busy. We ordered ribs and fries...it came Luke warm. The ribs were obviously made earlier...

If You are looking for american food on the Island donot hesitate. Food is good. Service really slow. Prices a bit expansive for truck food. Good atmosphere.

Great ribs and fish. Excellent service. Only open on the weekends. This place just feels like Bonaire and not like something trying to be more than is possible on an island in the middle of nowhere. It's relaxed, comfortable and the food is terrific. Went back three times over two weeks. Don't miss it.

They open only on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I think this business is mostly a labor of love. The food is simple, but delicious -- get the BBQ ribs, you won't be disappointed. Service is friendly and prompt, atmosphere is nice in an outdoor garden.

I'm only reviewing a couple of places to eat on Boanire. We have eaten at so many, and most have nothing "wrong", but they are pricey, a bit slow, and the food, while good, just never seems to be worth what we pay. This is one of the three places well worth the price. My wife loves the ribs (and... More

The ribs and satey chicken are amazing. It was clear from the amount of people stopping in that this place is an island favorite for locals and tourists alike. Easy, laid back atmosphere.

Food is great and the whole of Bonaire is there every weekend. I love the bigger garden and will always go back.
