What can I say? it are indeed ribs what they are selling, are they good? well they aren't bad but they aren't great either! Got the feeling those ribs never saw any site of a BBQ what so ever, slapping some (oven?)cooked ribs with some BBQ sauce doesn't make them BBQ ribs. I'm a real fan of low and slow... More

My family & I ate here during our vacation. The service was subpar, we weren't overly impressed. The food was okay but wished I was offered the specialty of the restaurant. It was decent though & we were thankful that they were open late. The costs of the food was excellent but did not have a kids menu for our... More

Visiting The Ribs Factory is an important part of our annual vacation in Curacao. This year we invited friends, assuring them they would have the best ribs on the island. As usual, the ribs were great. Service was smooth. The only problem was the strong smell of sewage drifting over the dining area. The staff had tried to mask the... More

we had a great experience at the rib's factory: quick service and quick turnaround that we got the food. The sangria is also really nice (lots of alcohol). Although the ribs are delivered they are really moist and flavoursome. Lastly, the price is low-medium so you get great value for money. The only thing they could do better are the... More

This place is 100 feet from where we are staying. We got the full rack sampler. All three were good. The spicy did not taste spicy to us. But was still good. The coleslaw was some of the best I have had. Plus the dipping sauce was really tasty.

We visited this restaurant the night before we left Curacao...we wished we would have eatin there prior to the last night. The ribs were amazing and so were the steak skewers and the fungi fries. We found out about the restaurant from some of the locals that we went diving with and they highly recommended this place. Service was good,... More

This place is fantastic! You've got to sit outside, order the ribs with the fungi fries, which are deep fried polenta stick, totally delicious. The ribs were tender, fall off the bone and great sauces. The also bring a garlic sauce and a Thai peanut sauce to add to the flavorings. The service is friendly and very accommodating. The prices...

We stopped by for lunch and true to the reviews, the ribs were great. We tried the BBQ ribs and also had a Philly cheesesteak. Don't expect a Philly cheesesteak with thinly sliced beef. It was larger chunks of beef. Service was great, clean and a nice outdoor patio!
