“Always a great time.”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

This was my second trip to Roatan. Had a great time at BV during my first trip, so they were one of my first stops when I returned. Glad to see nothing had changed! Live music, great service from the owner Joe and bartender Allan, and the new pizzas are outstanding. I'll definitely be back.

Wslysawyer thank you for a great review on TA! Being open for almost 2 years now, we are seeing more and more "return" customers such as yourself and we are glad that we were on the top of your list. We now look forward to your next visit and hopefully we continue to live up to your liking!

“Dinner on a night out”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

We had gone to West End for some night life. We happened to walk into this place and they had excellent pizza and very friendly staff. The pizza was huge. Plenty for our party of 7, and only one female. Highly recommended if you are missing that American Cuisine.

“Super Pizza !”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

We ordered a half and half and they had a very nice selections of different toppings such as roasted chicken, sweet onions, zucchini, roasted corn, plus the usual pizza toppings. Pizza was really good and large ! Enough for 2 meals for 2 of us.

Shawnda, thank you very much for your review of us here at The Buena Vida/Chubby Hubby. From the beginning we wanted our food program to be a bit different (and hopefully better) than the other offerings here in West End. Our newest venture, Chubby Hubby, is no different. Yup, we have pepperoni, sausage, ham and pina but we trick up your choices with things like roasted corn, local roasted pork, chicken and zucchini. Thank you for your patronage as well as for spreading the word. Keep living the "good life" and we hope to serve you again soon at the Buena Vida!

“Great food, great atmosphere!”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

Ate here a few times whilst in Roatan and never failed to disappoint. The deep fried PBJ sandwich was a particular guilty pleasure - but well worth the constricted arteries! The owners and all the staff were super friendly and always welcoming, it felt like I'd been going there for years. Definitely worth checking out either as a restaurant or bar whilst in Roatan.

Pete B, thank you for your kind words on TA. The tricked up PB&J is certainly a favorite of those who order it. Roatan is such a great place and we believe your food experience should be a big part of your overall enjoyment of your stay here. Lastly we truly are blessed with great people on our staff that are happy to work here and that it translates into attentive and warm service. Thank you again for your endorsement of the Buena Vida an we hope to serve you again soon.

“Fried chicken special very good”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

Solid fried chicken, and an above average meatball sandwich. Small portions but overall good experience.
