We went here for dinner one night because it was recommend by the locals. It's a little pricy but I don't think you'll be able to get a steak or hamburger this good anywhere else on the island.

Ok prices, you get really big portions and the food is great! The restaurant is a bit noisy and make sure you get there on time, it´sa popular place. Don´t miss their grilled fish, the snapper is amazing.

I think that folks love RJ's because it feels similar to home....home being the US. The food is good, not great, and there is plenty of it! I would definitely recommend for the fun 'open air' dining area and festive feeling. It was always crowded when we were there. On Utila, after being there for only a short time, you... More

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.
