“Best Texas BBQ ribs in Mexico!”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

The Sunday BBQ ribs are a must for us. Enjoy them with an excellent margarita and sand in your toes for a great time!

“Forget the margarita and go early”
Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

Seems to be a popular place but their menu is so small that if you not there earlier enough you are out of luck.

“Come for the Margaritas stay for the Lobster tacos”
Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

Best margaritas I have had- dangerously wicked. Watch your step as your way in and out is inches from pool and several tipsy patrons have dined and splashed. Hence the Soggy Peso. My wife and I had lobster tacos- very fine. Will return for the vaunted ribs.

“Came for the Margaritas and came back for the BBQ”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

GREAT friendly and fun atmosphere in a patio atmosphere. My husband and I aren't very outgoing but within minutes we felt like we'd come to a party as friends. The bar keep was fun, the drinks are very tasty but strong!! (watch out)
There is one day a week that they do a special BBQ and I can't remember which, but we went and it was very very good.
I can't wait to go back. I love this island!
This is super casual and laid back. Kick back and enjoy!

“Wonderful Hidden Gem”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

When you pull up in your golf cart, you'll be confused. You can't see the bar and from the street it looks like someone's house. It almost seemed scary. DON'T BE!!!! Follow the sign and park your golf cart next to the concrete pad, walk to the back and take a right. Duck between the gate and you'll find a wonderful little bar. We were there on a Saturday afternoon and it was nearly full of people having drinks and a wonderful time. We did the same. Did not have any food but, after chatting with Daniel, sounded like they had some good ribs on Sunday. Maybe next time, as we were on the island for just the day. I believe beers were 20 pesos.... might as well be free.
