Hole in ceiling, dirty floors & tables, hot with no air conditioning while advertising air conditioning. No salad dressing on salad, salt shaker too dirty to use, slow service, Mgr/owner lured us in and told us that "yes, this is Caroline's now" when Caroline's was really down the street and they have 4-5 stars for their clean restaurant and good...

It's called Billy's Kitchen now, probably trying to evade the bad reviews from original name of Ali Baba. It's positioned as a hookah bar & grill, maybe the smoke is better but the food and price are horrible. First we were seated outside and the fume from the street was so bad we had to move inside. There were hardly... More

Terrible service. We loved the location as we were new to San Pedro and stopped for a beer and saw the rotisserie chickens outdoors...so later that night stopped again to take home dinner. First we had the WORSE margaritas ever. I'd call them a glass of lime and SALT. Then after being overcharged for coleslaw and two chickens...we got home... More

Food was awful and caught the owner trying to rip us off with fictional food we never ordered or ate. San Pedro needs to boot this creepy fellow before someone dies from food poisoning.

Awful food. Awful service. "Margarita with salt" was actually made with lime juice, SALT and tequila. No sugar. Like drinking the Caribbean. Worst drink ever. Only table occupied, lunch took 45 minutes to serve. The appetizer arrived after the main course. The owner, Balil, boasts of being a chef in Miami and Los Angeles for years before settling in Belize... More

Stopped every evening for a beer on our evening walk. Ate lamb kabobs for dinner one night. The owner is Lebanese. It's also a hookah bar. Lively at night. Cranks the belly dancing music up. Good place to check out for a good time!

The owner of this bar is amazing and is so friendly. The rum punch is great. He also gave us a deal on a golf cart which made the trip so much better. Highly recommend this place to anyone. We will definitely be back.

Was really surprised here. We had some time to kill while Waiting on our flight. We had no idea of What there was to offer in the area so just walked upon this place knowing nothing.
