RJ's stands up to all of the good reviews. Great place to check out when you're really hungry on a budget! Loved the BBQ chicken.

Rjs is open 3 times a week but I recommend the Sunday roast pork special. It is soo good. You can either have it straight or in a burger and unless you eat a lot of food, you're unlikely to need a whole set of sides to yourself - I recommend sharing a sides order. My favourite meal on Utila.

Extremely good food. Very good portions. And best of all the prices were very good as well. We ate here twice and were very satisfied both times. Try the Kingfish filet!!

The food was my favorite on the island! Things were a little hit or miss, but the BBQ chicken and anything pork was fantastic! Went every night it was open.

I asked someone at UDC where the best fish was and they sent me here. Grilled fish of every description. I was torn between the barracuda and the wahoo, but I love wahoo so .... Very simply prepared on a place w rice and beans fries and salad. 160 Lps! It was delicious. The place gets crowded so get there... More

I go here every time I'm on the island on everyday they're open. It's always been crowded and sometime they're out of certain things and hard to find a place to sit but is worth it.

Make sure to visit RJs when you're in Utila! Ask around, as they are not open 7/7 days. They have fresh fish, served on your plate after a good grill on the barbeque, with lots of nice side-dishes! Very nice atmosphere, can be crowded on Sundays as it is a popular place. Can't blame them; the food is delicious!

If you go to Utila, then you have to eat at RJ's BBQ. I am a BBQ guy and RJ's is some of the best I have ever had!
