I walked the beach of Sousa and came upon big D tending to his barbecue outside his establishment on playa Sousa. Big D's is located close to the main entrance to the beach and I recommend you stop and chat with him. Hailing from the continental USA and now making his home in Sousa Dominican Republic, he knows barbecue. I... More

Great ribs as only Big D can make them. He is very sensitive to people's wishes and respects them, i.e., I do not like a lot of salt on my food and it came out perfect. There were 4 of us and we all had the ribs, one person had the combo ribs and chicken. All satisfied customers. The sides... More

Don't pass Big D's. The BBQ is delish; fresh and plenty of food. He's right on Sosua Beach follow you nose!

I reviewed Big D's in the spring of 2014. He has recently relocated to the Victorian House. I enjoyed the beach however this is a great fit. I believe he is also opening a sports bar/lounge on the same property. In my opinion the best food on the north shore. He is open every day lunch thru dinner.

We visited at the new location which is open from 8am till 11pm 7 days a week. The new location is gorgeous with... More

This is the best BBQ I have ever had and I have never eaten BBQ at the beach. Recently I heard Chef Big D has moved from the beach into Bourbon Street Restaurant of the Victoria House Hotel. I will really miss having BBQ at the beach and look forward to my next visit to Sosua where I can enjoy... More

Big D's is not on the beach but in Sosua Bay resort, and is open for evening meals. Do not miss this barbecue gem! The ribs Are fall off the bones tender, the chicken is moist and choice, the beans are definitely home made and if you like ribs that taste like pork and not sauce then come here! Enter... More

As everyone was mentioning how good this place I decided to eat a couple of order of wings... Good quality but not to say I will go back a lot because I find them a bit overpriced

Big D's is a little hole in the wall along Sosua beach, BUT it is not to be missed!!! Even though I have heard from a friend that Big D plans to close and go to be head chef at Victorian House YOU MUST try to get here before he closes. His chicken and ribs are to die for! And... More
