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.

No wonder this place beat out 15 other restaurants in the battle of food trucks this past year - their Korean pulled pork tacos and fish tacos knock anything else your tastebuds have ever tried out of the park. Only open on Sundays until the Superbowl, the owners, Mike and Tina, are looking to permanently set up shop early summer in the hotel area due to the high demand for their menu offerings.

During our two years as transplanted Arubianos, who now fondly miss our Dutch Caribbean home, we loved the Hollywood Smokehouse. You really must try to meet the owner to learn about the long history of the Hollywood, and how he is carrying this forward into the next generation. Any of the smoked meats are great, and the BBQ sauces are fantastic! Of course, it takes some effort to make your way to San Nicolas during your stay, but it is well worth the effort. This is a great way to end a day at Baby Beach either dining in or as take away for the hotel. Enjoy.

Just visited the place, saw their ad in the Island Tempations Magazine in Aruba. They had such a nice picture of their beef brisket that I had to go and buy, which I wasn't disappointed at all. Excelent food good price, and as advertised a take out style restaurant only.
Staff was very friendly

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.
