I'll leave the "best of" choices to others but, as for hot dogs, I'll have mustard, shredded onion and saurkraut, please.

If anyone is going to suggest ketchup on their hotdog, please send me a pm alerting me so I can avoid the thread from that point forward!! lol

you are making me hungry already
  • the best burger i can have in Aruba is at the kitchen carts on the side of the main roads after 7:00), they have the meanest burger, you can barely hold it in your hand, i like mine very moist in their special tartar sauce, with bacon, potato chips, pickles and cheese.'
  • the place i like to get my hot dogs does not exist anymore, i liked mine with potato chips, jalapeno, sweet relish, mustard. (had cravings at that time)
  • sorry nothing beats my moms pisca cora hasa (fried red snapper) with her homemade creole sauce
  • the juiciest steak i ever tasted was a long time ago at the cattle baron (now screaming eagle) now my fav place is el gaucho

I don't eat hot dogs.

I don't know where the best burger is - I am too lazy to leave LaCabana, so have them at Islander Grill.

Best steak to me is at Madame Janettes!

Smile Re: slow forum day so let's get it moving

The best steak I have gotten on the island was at El Gauchos. On our second trip I got the T-Bone and it was thick, juicy, tasty and huge. Best T-Bone ive ever had. Had a few there since then and have only been disapointed once.
I dont know the name of it, but the best burger Ive had was at the outdoor restaurant at the Westin/Wyndham.
Best dog was at the restaurant at Renaissance private island. There was a Nathans in front of Casa Del Mar for a while and they had good dogs. Bagel shop there now.
Like mustard, cheese, chilli, onion,sometimes relish and/or jalepen'o.
Best fish is too tough a question. 8 or 9 places that are the best.

love the steaks at Sunset Grille and the fish at Wacky Wahoos.
Each year we try one or two new places and our favorites change as we add new favorites.
I love week 6-after Christmas my favorite time of year

Love the Bingo Burger

El Gaucho still serves the best steak on the island

Not much of a fish eater so I have to pass there

I like my hot dogs with mustard relish and onions and the best hot dog used to be at the Holiday Inn in the lobby area near the casino. They were only available at night starting about 11:00 p.m.

For Italian, mine is the best but when I'm not cooking I'll head to Sole Mare.

I Love Aruba Re: slow forum day so let's get it moving

I like the kosher hot dogs at Tortuga at ABC. A little mustard, little onions and I'm all set.

The Plaza for a hamburger with pineapple.

Used to love the steaks at Rio... and fish, The Old Fisherman.

All this Hot Dog reading brought be back to when I was 10 years old. Mom left Dad in charge of us kids while she went on a vacation with the girls. Poor Dad was not the best cook so on the first night, he made us hotdogs. The toppings consisted of ketchup, mustard, bacon, cheese and peanut butter! It went all down hill from that night and us kids were never so happy to see Mom come home.

I sure hope to never see these types of toppings in Aruba
