I had heard rumors of this addition to the menu and had to check it out. Made it this Saturday with a group of 7 had two custom built pies and they did not disappoint. Fed everyone and had a few slices for breakfast the next morning. Crispy thin style pizza, good cheese, nice sauce and quality toppings offered. Washed it all down with a few cold beers. What more do you want? Good service, clean bathroom, yea had that too. Thanks Buean Vida/Chubby Hubby Pizza. Loved it.

mcartini (great name!), thank you for the ULTIMATE compliment! Chubby Hubby Pizza actually evolved by listening to many of our Buena Vida customers saying that they are looking for good pizza and have not been able to find it. Hmmmm, mother of invention... "Let's try pizza!" thus the Chubby Hubby concept was born. Thanks again for the great words and we look forward to serving you again soon.

Thank you for a great time, amazing food and a try of the pizza before we left town! Joe is very welcoming and has a great staff. My wife and I made it over to The BV many times during our stay. They remember your favorite drink and the staff remembered our names. Thank you for the hospitality, our trip would not have been the same without meeting you, making it to music trivia nights and enjoying the food and local beer together. The food was excellent and if I could offer some advice go more then once during your stay in West End so that you can try more of their great food! Hope our paths cross again.

I've lived in Roatan for a year and a half now and have been desperately awaiting some quality pizza. While others have tried valiantly to impress, Joe and Wendy have finally succeeded. They've just unleashed Chubby Hubby Pizza on West End and locals could not be more excited! They're using high quality ingredients and cooking to perfection. This is the type of pizza that you burn your entire mouth on because you simply can't wait for it to cool down. It. Is. AWESOME. Thank you, Joe and Wendy!!!

Day one, we met Joe and he made us feel SO welcome. When we saw him on the street, he remembered our names and greeted us like good friends. The live music is incredible, the atmosphere is simple and easy going, and the staff goes out of their way to make sure you are happy. By our third visit, which was within our first 4 nights on the island, we felt like were at our local bar back home, surrounded by "family." Music trivia is well done and fun, and the overall vibe is perfect island mentality. Joe knows customer service and has years of experience. Make this a destination during your stay.
