Unbelievably good ribs and lomito

Situated on a not too charming location this place serves the best ribs I've ever had. Great flavours, cooked to perfection. Try the combination with the lomito; it's really great!

Went back to eat after 7 years of not being on island. Food had gone downhill. Still good, but the smell of raw sewage every now and again during dinner really ruins the meal...

I used to go to this place a lot some years ago and I always remember to have good sized ribs. I checked it again lately and I was surprised to see that I got served "pre mature" ribs. Way too small and not as good as they used to be before...

You get a little of everything, Lomito, chicken with cajun fries. Got two sauces: pinda and garlic. Noticed immediatly that waitresses were more busy with them self instead of the... More

Delicious ribs! Get the mixed combo, which gives you a taste of everything: bbq, original, and a slightly spicy sauce. So good. We got a little tired of the usual restaurant spots on the island and came here for an order of the full rack with 2 sides (baked potato and cole slaw) to go. The cole slaw was just... More

Got the three different ribs plate, expecting a hearty meal of three half-racks. In actuality, the ribs were tiny, about 1/3 the size of typical baby back ribs I've had on the island. Not sure where they get such small ribs...or if they were even pork ribs. Can say however that the were very tender and quite tasty, but have... More

This place is a little hard to find. But once you find it it's a gold mine. The ribs are extremely delicious and suculent. The sphere is great and the service is fast. You can even get take out here! The ribs are finger licking good. Each time I visit the island I always go dining here.

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, Shack and Rendezvous. Once may be a fluke... 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
