“The best BBQ I have ever had plus great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We got off the Norwegian Star on Christmas Eve and took a cab into town for just a couple of dollars. The cab dropped us off and the first place we walked to was a brand new bbq restaurant. We walked up the stairs where we had a great view of the beach and the ship. The owner, Robert and his entire family run this American bbq place. We were seated and had our drinks before we had a chance to read the menu.

This is the best BBQ that I have ever had in my whole life. I had the smoked chicken plate with potato salad and my wife had the smoked brisket plate with fresh cut fries and potato salad. The potato salad was to die for.

The food was out in a matter of minutes which left us plenty of time to eat, drink and then go lay on the beach at El Caballo Blanco.

They had dessert but we we too full. The portions are big, the price was very reasonable and the place was clean.
