“Best ribs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

They aren't lying when they say the best ribs in the Caribbean. We loved them! And had free sundaes for dessert because we ordered before 6pm!

“Amazing Ribs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

This place is so good. The best ribs I have ever had anywhere! No joke. And it won't break the bank like many places on the island.

“Almost Good!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

The food was good but not outstanding; they did offer quite a combo of ribs, chicken and fish. Always very crowded. Drinks were great!

“BBQ Ribs in Aruba”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Sounds a bit crazy but the ribs here were not bad. Well then again, I am only comparing it to my NYC experience with ribs. We order the Full rack and got it half and half. Ribs had great flavor and was cooked just right. Easy to get off the bone. A bit messy though. But overall, not bad for Aruba

“Mmmmmmmmm!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Great ribs!!! Good coleslaw but the home fries were too salty. We went twice during our week stay just could not pass it up after knowing how great the ribs were. The shrimp was very tasty. Prices are good. For $15.00: half rack of ribs (meaty), coleslaw, home fries...no gratuity added to bill.
