Love pizza and this place hits the spot. Excellent pizza called Chubby Hubby. Met the owner Joe and was very nice. Service was quick and between a couple of beers, bottle of water and pizza, only. $28. Loved it

Great pizza and wonderful staff/owner! Felt like I was hanging out with lifelong friends here. Nice atmosphere and right in the middle of everything happening in West End.

We ate at Buena Vida after a snorkel trip with Roatan divers in June, 2014. We were a group of 8 with 4 kids. The owner and staff was very attentive and offered to fry fish strips for the kids when we inquired. The kids loved it! The adults in the group drank local beers and had the most amazing... More

Cindy, thank you for the great words! We continue to operate as The Buena Vida for breakfast, lunch and bar and recently added Chubby Hubby Pizza as a "co" brand, working in tandem. Our hopes are, as the CH brand grows, we will expand it into it's own brick and mortar location in addition to the current set up with... More

Ended up here one night on the recomendation of someone. The pizza is INCREDIBLE! Great atmosphere. Service in Honduras wasn't the best, but here it was great. The owner, Joe, is wonderful. I ended up eating or just having drinks there nearly every night I was in West End. An absolute MUST visit if you're in Roatan.

This is a nice, open-air place where owners Wendy and Joe will take care of you! The plate of fish tacos is huge and the drinks are quick.

Comparing it to several other pizza locations in West End, we felt this was the best! Joe, the owner, came out and introduced... More
