Very American BBQ style place. The service was fast and servings huge. I had a rib, pulled pork and fries. The meat was great but the fries were cold and chewy which was disappointing. My partner ordered fries later and they were freshly cooked, much better. Nice craft beers but they're expensive.

Good food, but a little pricy. Nice atmosphere and they recently added Antigua Brewery to the menu which is a nice touch for Antigua.

Had excellent pork ribs for lunch; they were cooked just right & were very meaty. I chose Texas beans & potato salad as sides & they were good. Two sauces are served on the side so you can choose your flavors & how much sauce you want. I was there mid-day with an important soccer match on TV which might... More

Texas BBQ may not be the first thing on your mind as you're waking through the ancient streets of Antigua, but as soon as you get a whiff of that smoky spice wafting through the air, you're hooked! My wife and I stopped by for a late lunch, looking to get out of the heat and for a cool drink.... More

My meat eating friends said the food was delicious, but the veggie burger is very meh. I could make a much better veggie burger for cheaper at my house. What bothered me more, though, was the the owner tried to convince all 4 vegetarians in our party of 8 to try meat. I know this is a bbq place, but... More

I suppose some items on the menu were a little pricey but no more than what you would pay in the States or the UK. The burgers were really cheap and were seriously tasty! Yum yum yum.

Very average food, mostly pre-prepared, in an unenspiring venue. The food is a little overpriced for what you get, but more serious, the draft beer depending on size, is 35, 45, or 75Q. This is over 10$ US ! Check the price before you drink, preferable somewhere else. Happy Travels.

the good -- it's good bbq, sauce is good, fries are good, i'd say the chicken is better than the beef, which can be kind of tough at times, but that's to be expected in the area. Good beer selection, and the place offers a "developed nation" experience with the recently renovated dining area. the food isn't "great," but if... More
