For the best of everything, go for the Bobbejan's Special - I always do! and at $18 a box it can feed 1 very hungry persons or... More

I come from the land of BBQ, not the Texas, KC, or Carolina wannabe bbq. Real, Memphis BBQ. I'd eat here any day. Between my group we had the Ribs, Satehs, and Chicken leg. The flavor of the chicken and ribs were as good as any I've ever had. The ribs were just a tad on the dry side, no... More

Very generous takeout portions of the best ribs on the island. You can dine in also but bring your DEET. Within walking distance from town. Finger Licking Good Ribs and great slaw as a side. $10 for our takeout meal of ribs, slaw and fries. A great local place so you know the food is great when the locals come... More

Bobbejan's has been a regular place we stop when we visit the island. My husband and I did takeaway to enjoy at home. We both had the ribs with fries and coleslaw. The ribs were tough and had little meat. Overall, very disappointing. The quality has declined over our last couple of visits. Not sure that this place will stay... More

This place came highly recommended so the bar was set high. The BBQ was good, but nothing to write home about. It is only open on the weekends. The place was busy with lots of take out orders. Seating was limited. I had the chicken, which was good.

Historically this is our first meal on the island. This place isn't fancy but the food is great! Salad, rice and a piece of grilled wahoo. It really doesn't get any better than that!! Only open on weekends though :(

We don't eat ribs, but the chicken satay was quite good. Make a salad at home and serve the satay for your main course. It was a nice break from eating out every night.
