Description: Recently relocating to the low-rise hotel area at Alhambra Casino & Shops in Eagle Beach, Hollywood Smokehouse is the island's only smokehouse where we are "doin' it low and slow" over hickory and apple wood. Classic barbecue favorites include pulled pork, beef brisket, and ribs, and our award-winning tacos that gave us our first place win in Battle of the Food Trucks. Catering also available for groups. Our mixologist has created one of the most unique craft cocktail menus in Aruba, featuring our signature Bourbonwood Lemonade made with fresh lemonade, blackberries, Elderflower, and agave.

If you like good ribs and lots of them, this is the place. Only open on Saturday and Sunday but worth the wait. Very good food and reasonable prices by a very pleasant staff. The bar-b-q is terrific and you will be full when you leave. . . . Worth the time to find it. It's across the street from the Texaco Station. . . . .

Who would have thought you could get excellent Carolina BBQ in Aruba? Heard so much about this place we just had to stop. It's located behind the PizzaHut next to The Old Dutch Bar. Only opened on Saturday and Sunday and either takeout or eat it at the bar. Hickory smoked Bbq is outta this world. We had brisket, pulled pork and a sampler with chicken, sausage and ribs. Sides were coleslaw and potao salad. Each bite was that much better then the first. The owners are so friendly and warm you feel like your at a friends house for a bbq. The price can't be beat.

We had lunch at Hollywood Smokehouse when they were in San Nicolas. They are now near the low and high rise hotels at Pos Abao 41, Bubali. They are now next door to the Old Dutch Bar and only open on weekends for now. Mike and Tina the owners are great. My wife and I both had the pulled pork sandwich and it was outstanding. It is take out only but, we took our food next door and had a cold beer with it.

It was a little hard to find directions because it has moved since most of the online information has been put on. If you are on the main road going from Eagle Beach to Palm Beach, you will come to a traffic circle. Make a right at that circle where you will see a Texaco. On the right there will be a red and white tent next to Dutch Bar. That's the barbeque. You buy delicious food from under that tent sold by very nice people. It was only open on the weekend. We had a brisket sandwich, a pulled pork sandwich, potato salad and coleslaw. You can take it away or eat on the porch of the bar. It was delicious, informal and inexpensive. We like to mix up where we eat on the island. Also, it was the day we arrived and we like a quick, easy meal after a day of travel. If you enjoy barbeque stops in the South where you are lucky to get a picnic table, this is for you.

Whenever I come to Aruba I always make sure to visit Hollywood Smokehouse Diner at least two to three times. The only thing better than their beef brisket is the customer service. The staff makes me feel right at home and the food is reminiscent of my grandma's southern style cooking. While you're visiting this "one happy island" I would highly recommend you make a stop and given there new location getting there is even easier and faster than before!

We are glad you found our new location! We have attempted to officially change our address here on Trip Advisor numerous times over the past month, but unfortunately the Trip Advisor administration has not followed up.
Our new location, for those that don't know, is Pos Abao 41 in Bubali near Eagle Beach. We are next to The Old Dutch Bar, near the roundabout off of the main boulevard (near Texaco and Pizza Hut).
Thank you!

Mike and Tina Bislick
