This is BBQ rib Nirvana

Cut to the chase- friends told me this place was great, and I being a native Memphian and self appointed USA traveling and tasting BBQ officianado, was skeptical to say the least. Well I'm here to say this is the best ribs I have had, anywhere including my beloved Southern states-sorry Dreamland... read more

We ordered the rib mix. It's a mix of the 3 tastes bbq , original and hot. It was really really good. You can scrape the flesh off the bones with only your fork. It's so soft and tasteful. A great place and not expensive. Take the Cajun fries, they taste like potatoe wedges. Garlic bread is the one you... More

Unbelievable good ribs at an exceptionally good price. Good service. Ask for extra cole slaw the servings of cole slaw can be small & the cole slaw is quite good.

The food is great. The service is very good also. This place is the place to be if you are a meat lover. The portions are enormous and the price is very good. One of my favourite spots in Curacao. The place is very basic, but nice.

I have been there several times. The size of the ribs is not every time the same. One time the ribs were very nice and soft, the next time not as good as the first time. Service is good and quick. Price is ok.

Perfect Ribs, no need for a knife so tender. Even the fries were different and tasty. Would recommend to everybody who likes ribs. The included cabbage salad is not worth to mention. a spoon full and not really tasty. We did not try the other food, but as it was very full and lots of locals came for take away... More

Outstanding ribs. I'm hard to impress when it comes to Bbq ribs however they receive two thumbs up. Great food and fast service.
