“Great place to lounge”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

This place exceeded my expectations. The beach chairs are free, the drink service is great, and they're HONEST. They have live music and the food is decent. Very hassle free, will return!!

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

We have now lived in Playa del Carmen for 4 years and this place is the best of the best. Try their prime rib sandwich or come out on Sundays at 2pm for the all you can eat pig roast! Great bands, great music and great food!

“Go for the pork BBQ!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

We read Trip Advisor reviews of their Sunday pork BBQ. And we weren't disappointed. We came early for drinks on the beach, and let me tell you, the pork BBQ was the best I've ever had. Great friendly staff, too. A must visit when you're in Playa.

“Casual, Cool & Fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

We have been here for ribs, plus the pizza, tried the wings & had the Sunday Pig Buffet...so we have been here on quiet a few occasions and there is a reason..it's bloody good. We have been to several others beach bars & clubs & to tell you the truth most are a rip off ( especially Momitas..don't do that place ) I'm in the food game back home & asked Cowboy John if he could show me his BBQ smoker which is a home made little beauty..thanks again Cowboy. We have found the staff to be friendly & the vibe there fun & casual...not full of pretentious want to be's like some of the other places..just walk in & have 1 drink & you will see what I mean..thanks guys you have made our month here fun.
