This is a small wagon station type of place with easy access from the beach and main road. Their burgers were juicy and delicious, perfect after a day of diving. They tend to run out of food by 4pm and close once they are out. A must stop after Hilma Hooker dive or close dive sites.

Lion fish sandwich was great. Would go back! Enjoyed watching iguanas passing by. Burgers were also great. Reasonable prices for lunch.

My parents use to stop at some of the most unusual places from Maine to Oregon, usually I would cringe because normally it didn't LOOK like a place good food was served. This is one of those places. A small trailer behind a little SUV on the side of the road by the beach. My son said we should stop... More

This is perfect for those days when you finish your dive. You're pleasantly tired, still damp, aren't ready to leave the gorgeous views but need a tasty lunch. This colorful truck is usually roadside at Windsock & offers tasty & juicy burgers- my favorite on the island- and their specialty- lionfish burgers. These evil little critters make a tasty meal....

Enjoyed a visit here on our last day on Bonaire. The owners have been running this for the last 2-3 months and are doing a fantastic job! They are so much friendlier than the last owner. Pleasant service. Food prepared quickly and it was delicious!!! Some had the Lion Fish and some had the Burger. Everyone was extremely happy and... More

We ordered a lionfish sandwich which was just OK--the fish itself was very fresh and yummy but was begging for some salt and maybe some other seasonings. it was probably 2-3 oz of fish on a small bun for $12.50. Definitely not worth the price.

The cheeseburger is ok, thanks to the tasty meat, but the lionfish burger is plain insipid. Cold industrial bun, slice of tomatoe and some lettuce, with a small piece of fish drowned in sauce... Service is friendly though.
