  • Ribs Factory is Sneaky

    We went to the Ribs Factory last night. The ribs were OK (a bit fatty) but we won’t be back because I believe they purposely attempted to overcharge us. While I won’t delve into the details, I will say that it seems that they play some of those little games to try and scam tourist out of a few extra bucks.

    Plus, the food is REALLY expensive for what you get: $11.50 for a 4 piece shrimp cocktail (ignore the picture on the menu as the manager says, “you shouldn’t expect to get 8 shrimp like depicted in the picture”); $18.50 for a rack of ribs; $17.50 for chicken quesadilla.

      Mike...My recommendation for ribs is Paradise Moon. If you're still on island, try them..I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. A big YUM...

        The baby back ribs at Cactus Blue are not be missed… and this coming from a Texan! Chef Hagen not only does the ribs just right he makes great BBQ sauce.
        As a bonus they are reduced in price for happy hour from 5:30 to 6:30.

          Only ate there once, and went for the ribs, but was talked into the wahoo special by the cook. It was good but I found the noise from Karl's across the street to be just to much and have never went back.

            Ribs Factory has always treated us well. The transistion to the US dollar has caused alot of confusion on the Island. Suppy and demand is also a factor. Remember you are on a Island...

              Bobbejans is the place for ribs. Tasty & reasonably priced. If busy, service can be a bit slow, but ... hey, you're on island time. Have another Bright & kick back !!

                    everything is expensive on Island

                    Mike P,
                    I haven't found anything cheap about Bonaire!
                    But, I'll be back soon.
                    Any dealings I've had with the Rib factory have been honest and above board. The food has been good to excellent and the service pretty good. I just wonder how they return poor food product--such as your ribs, are they stuck with them?
                    Is there anyway this person could have just made a "plain old mistake"?
                    By the way welcome to Bonaire Talk 2, hope your diving on island was gr8--wish I was there.

                      another place for ribs

                      I had the ribs at Wil's and they were wonderful. Slow cooked with a Hoisin-based sauce accompanied by a terrific Thai coleslaw and frenchfries.
