Besides the informal street barbecues (which offer the best value food around), a rotating schedule ensures a beach barbecue nearly every night of the week, starting with BC’s (on the beach, just east of the airstrip, tel. 501/226-3289, 11 a.m.–3 p.m. Sun.). Your choice of chicken, ribs, or fish runs US$5–10. Also on Sunday, Crazy Canuck’s throws in live music and a horseshoe tournament.
The San Pedro Holiday Hotel has live music to accompany its beach barbecue on Wednesday night; the Lions Club donates the money it makes from its Friday and Saturday night barbecues to those who need medical help and can’t afford it; and Ramon’s Village has Tuesday and Friday barbecues.
The island’s only falafel joint, Alibaba’s (across Coconut Dr. from Tropic Air terminal and Moncho’s Golf Carts, tel. 501/226-4042, US$5–12, 10 a.m.–10 p.m. daily), is run by two brothers from Jordan and is best known for its takeout rotisserie chicken, served Lebanese style with hummus and tabouli; there are also kabobs, veggie plates, and sometimes hookahs to smoke.
