“Best BBQ Texas ribs in the world.... on Utila of course!”
To really give you a true impression of the Driftwood i need to set the scene! Its not just a place to eat its a experience you rarely get in life... The fact that they serve some of the best BBQ food i have ever tasted now seems secondary!...
So we happened upon Utila by chance, we happened to rent a place opposite driftwood cafe by chance... But some things are meant to be! Whilst standing outside our cabana stood on one leg with my laptop in the air trying to get a wifi signal from the main hotel. I suddenly hear a voice hollar across from behind a BBQ. 'Just use our signal, its much better!'
5/5 - Kindness for the sake of Kindness!
I wandered across and met Bruce 'The BBQ King' Originally from Texas. If i ever had a picture of a true Texan i realised there and then Bruce was it. We went that night for dinner and despite been on a tight budget we opted for the ribs! Christ on a bike, they are the best ribs we have ever had (we had them 3 more times after that just to be sure). The cheese burger we had was also the best burger i ever remember having!
5/5- Quality of food.
So before we knew it we had exchanged stories with Bruce, Sharon the staff and the ever faithful locals (you know who you are 'Jungle Jim') It was like we had been friends for a lifetime! We talked over our plans to visit Texas, got the lowdown of where to go and where not to go. We even got put in contact with a lovely lady to meet once we arrive! Suddenly 2 beers down we are all family!
5/5- Good company.
Wash all that down with a couple of Monkey Balls and life is good!
5/5- Secret recipe shot
Never having done a review on Trip advisor i feel that a review is not a review without something critical.... Its not open 24 hours and been the only food on the island worth eating its not free.
My advice is go, get a beer and ask about these crappy ribs they sell.... and tell them Alex & Lisa sent you! You will have a hoot.
