“Salty Chicken & Fatty Ribs”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

The food isn't worth the long wait in line. Service is very slow. I think things could speed up if the employees had specialized assignments. Picture going to McDonalds or Burger King and watching the guy or girl up front take your order then leave to serve up the fries, make your burgers with the proper fixings, pour all of your drinks, and then make their way back up front to bag, take your money to one person at a single register, and etc. Get it? I will say that there were some upgrades over the past year such as new bathrooms. Bebo's needs an employee assigned to cleaning tables after customers depart. I guess growing up in Philly has me very bias about good BBQ "pits" with lean but juicy ribs and good tasting chicken. A good cook doesn't need to kill their food in salt to call it tasty. Funny enough, McDonalds in the next parking lot gets far less business from the people.

“Delish!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

The food was awesome! The chicken was moist , flavorful and hit the spot! The rice and morcilla was great! It was our first spot to eat at when we landed. There was a bit of a wait because that many people are in line but it is worth it!

“Best Lechon BBQ in PR”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Fresh Pernil(Roasted Pork Shoulder), Rotisserie chicken juicy and delicious along with traditional arroz con gandulles (rice n pigeon peas) and Amarillo (Fried sweet banana) and I guarantee you will be soooooo happy, full, and ready for an afternoon ciesta (nap). Great place location is off the Baldorioty highway across from airport. Its kind of funny that theres a mcDonalds right next to it. Traditional delicious PR food? orrrr a Big Mac?? Unbelievable haha! I will say it is difficult to get to because of the various dead ends but you'll figure it out like I did . Just be patient as any place or anything yopu do in Puerto Rico, patience is a MUST or you will not have a good experience. Fast food is rarely fast but Bebos definetely a great BBQ place. I speak from experience from when I lived on the island in 2005 for business. It's sad that the economy has dipped. There used to be a Sullivans BBQ which was the best, there still is Martins but I heard they changed mgmt from the locals and are not the same so Bebo's withstood the test of time

“Good but you will wait for it! ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

Great BBQ. Simply meat (ribs, sausage, chicken, roast pork) and yucca. We waited 30 minutes to order and one of the locals said it is always like that. They do not speak much English so someone ordered for us. Food was inexpensive and very very good. Seating is outdoors but covered.
