They start the week on friday. All food was being cooked that night. The take out area was packed near the opening hours and stayed that way until at least the beginning of the third hour. If you wanted to sit inside there's no telling...More

We have been to Bobbejan’s before but I totally had forgotten how good the BBQ sauce is! My favorites are the ribs and the chicken (drumstick). Coleslaw is good too.

Clientele was a mix of residents and tourists, and we sequenced our dining schedule to be there on one of the weekend days when Bobbajen's is open. I usually judge a BBQ place by their rubs and sauce, and by the selection of outboard sauces...More

The beer was good, but unfortunately this is the only positive point ! We ordered some ribs, that were served very quickly . Too quicly, because they were almost cold in the middle. For 11$, as shown on the picture in Tripadvisor, that would have...More

Been to Bobbejan's many times and each time it has been just as good as the last. The food is basic, the staff friendly and the atmosphere reminiscent of every Caribbean cafe you have ever seen or eaten in. While nothing on Bonaire is cheap,...More
