    Cheap, fun places to eat & drink.

    I've only been to Aruba once before and stayed in an all-inclusive. Ventured out everyday, but forget the bars & restaurants we visited!

    Staying at the Costa Linda resort in October. We're four adults who like the more casual type places, cheap beer, good bar food, fun atmosphere. Maybe a place for a nicer dinner one of the nights. But we don't want to break the bank on this trip, as I know from experience that Aruba is quite pricey. I know that we'll hit the grocery store and stock up on some food & drinks, but we're not looking to "save a buck" by eating in everyday.

    Any suggestions for cheap eats? Any fun happy hour bars? Trying to find the best bets for cheap beers & good food.
    Any suggestions are appreciated.


    Thanks!!!!

    Yes...."hubby" highly recommends Buster's for a fun night.....great sports bar. CindyO has to drag me to Hooters but, being a good husband, I go.

    Plaza Cafe downtown is a very nice "cheap eat".

    thanks!!

    gonna start taking notes on these places!

    keep 'em coming if anyone has any other suggestions!

    when we were in aruba a few years ago, we ate at hooter's about 6 times over the course of the week. that's the type of place we're looking for....cheap bar food & reasonably priced beer.

    10 days to go! getting excited!!!

    I love B-55 down beyond the airport.
    go past the airport (airport on right)
    follow that main road , also referred to as the highway.
    across from the balashi plant at the set of lights turn left.
    B-55 is up less than a 1/4 mile on the right.
    Nothing much to look at as far as being "fancy" but boy is the food and great, prices reasonable and real laid back.
    Terrific BBQ on Sunday afternoons.

    Linda's pancakes and pizza is pretty inexpensive and the food is excellent. Wacky Wahoos is also a nice restaurant that is not nearly as expensive as a lot of other places and the food is amazing.
