King Ribs, Aruba

King Ribs is what the name implies, a king of ribs in Oranjestaad, Aruba. I’ve wanted to get to this place for a long time, and finally did yesterday for the Sunday BBQ fest that happens each week all across the island. Here’s a look at the joint from street level.

There are two guys working the grills full time, slapping down ribs, chicken, and such delectables atop the hot coals. Here they are in action.

The smell wafting out of here is all the advertising they need. Take a look at the menu to see what’s on offer and the corresponding prices.

Please note those prices are in Florins. Divide by 1.75 to get the price in US dollars. In other words, the prices are very reasonable, especially for the quantity of the food you get. Let’s take a look at the chow.

On the left is the four piece chicken meal, complete with corn on the cob, boiled plantain, smashed potatoes. On the right you have the large ribs with the same sides. These two boxes easily fed three people. Maybe you like more in your belly. If so, order up accordingly. A line does form here, so you may want to call ahead. It’s also fun to watch the pit masters at work, chat with others waiting, and take in the local scene. Either way, you’ll enjoy the fun and flavor at King Ribs.

Bon dia.
