I visited here with my mum all I have to stay is that the food was a really good price and you get a massive portion of food! To be honest you can't go wrong if you just want food and somewhere to be! Staff were okay some stood out more than others

Excellent location for a half way stop on the A9. Standard food at standard prices all served with a smile. If you want fancy food with Earl grey tea at inflated prices then this is not for you. Orders are taken and delivered quickly. I think the fact that this place is always busy speaks volumes

To the right of the main entrance door, there was a stainless steel storage cabinet attached to the external wall - wonder when it was last cleaned or inspected by... More

I have stopped at Ballinluig Motor Grill a number of times when heading up and down the A9. The staff are always friendly and extremely helpful, especially a long haired young gentleman for whom nothing is too much trouble. Food hits the spot and they make a great cuppa.

Just off the A9 at Ballinluig services, with long opening hours. We especially liked the takeaway rolls for lunch and they were seriously the best, most filled, and tastiest rolls! Good hearty food and extremely good value. The place seemed busy - you know it must be good when you see a constant stream of cars and trucks peeling off... More

On both visits we were greeted in a most courteous and cheerful manner. Once again I selected a standard breakfast and the wife selected sausage beans and chips both dishes arrived, were well cooked, ample portions, well presented and served in a cordial manner.

You can always find a good meal here. An all day breakfast with tea and toast is a must. Good friendly service. The place to get fuelled up for the next part of the journey.
