Description: We bring authentic pit BBQ to Puerto Vallarta, with our custom built Ole Hickory Pit. We have the first and the only low and slow BBQ restaurant in PV. For delicious Pulled Pork, Beef Brisket, Turkey and Monster Dinosaur Pork Ribs stop by. Combined with our custom homemade potato salad, coleslaw and smoked BBQ baked beans we have the flavors you enjoy at a backyard BBQ. All our dry rubs and Tequila based BBQ sauce are made in house. With our private backyard patio, you will have a relaxing, casual place to socialize with family and friends or a opportunity to make new friends that may last a lifetime. Doug and Ruth the two crazy Canadians that run the joint are always good for fun chitchat and to assist you in anyway possible.

We are coming back, have a new space in old town. Just doing the Reno's now, won't be long and guys like Manfred will be able to enjoy our fine ribs, pulled pork, brisket, chicken and all the other favorites. Great location with a view. Plus we have a second location opening in the hotel zone near Blake's sports bar,... More

Sorry to read that you have closed the restaurant, six of us went at Lobo Lui's in February 2013 the food was excellent, service was superb and the restaurant was immaculate and well decorated. We will be returning in February of 2014, and we sure hope by then that you have found a new location. The ribs were the best... More

Sadly, this restaurant is now closed (March 7, 2013) with a sign posted on the door from Canadian owners Doug and Ruth thanking their customers. They had a dream, they tried it, but unfortunately they just couldn't find enough business at their location. Good luck to them and thanks for their support of local charities.

Our first time dining here and very satisfied. Service was excellent. The best smokehouse ribs ever. Served to the table dry along with a choice of their signature sauces, absolutely scrumptious!!. The sides, potato salad and creamy coleslaw compliment the ribs nicely. Also available are a number of other sides. The house wines are served in an 8 oucne tumbler,... More

I'm not an expert on BBQ, but the four of us found the food delicious and the price reasonable. We took advantage of the Wednesday 13 rib rack special, the wives shared one and the husbands one each. They were delicious and there were enough ribs left over for lunch the next day. The house Margaritas were good and well... More
