This one I liked

Good ribs. We could make combinations if we wanted. The service was excellent. And I also liked the venue, sitting at a balcony overlooking the water. It was ribs guys, lots of them, and beer

Another visit to beautiful Bonaire and the rib factory. Again, outstanding ribs, wonderful view, great service. However, I do think they taste better after a day of diving! Still the best ribs I have ever eaten, and I have chomped down on a few, believe me!

We ordered Mixed Ribs which should have been a mix of the 3 offered sauces/marinades and a Full Slab with the Hot marinade. The Full Slab was not hot at all and the Mixed Ribs tasted all more or less the same. After asking they told us that the chef made a mistake. (Well, how hard can it be to... More

We had dinner at this place and had a seaside table, so a great sunset view (and cars). We had just a full slab of ribs, which is mega huge. The taste was good. Included salad was very limited in size. Staff was very friendly and service was good. Menu need renewal, as it almost fell apart. Will go there... More

This is one of our go to restaurants in Bonaire. Ribs were awesome. Had mahi mahi with a shrimp sauce on a second visit which was very good as well. Reasonable prices and good views make this a sure bet.

I had my second meal at Ribs Factory, amd the food is still good. The BBQ-sauce is very good, and the ribs are cooked to perfection. The tenderloin scewer was very tender and well tasting. If they would only staff the restaurant to the level this food deserves, it would be super!

Who would think ribs in Bonaire would be good. Been to Bonaire for years, 1st time at Rib Factory. Very good ribs, fries and outstanding coleslaw. Well worth the price, great view of the sunset.

Decided to give The Rib Factory a try. Great decision. Prices are good and the portions are big. We went with mixed grill. Recommended by our waiter. The mixed grill is big enough for two people. It comes with ribs, boneless chicken breast and a steak tenderloin. It also comes with one side. Definitly give this restaurant a try.

The Ribs were great. I wasn't excepting them to be that good in Bonaire. They were fall off the bone. I did not do the hot sauce on them.
