I love RJ'S because it's simple so good all times. They accomodate my sides and Cook my grill to my esoecific taste. The crew is very friendly and the owners very nice.

RJ's has some amazing eats and as others reviewers mentioned, there may be lines to order. Keep an eye on their schedule as they are closed on nights of the week.

Hands down, no competition, best food on the island and sometimes queues out the door to prove it. Just wish they were open everyday as I couldn't get enough of their food!

There is not many choices in the Island of Utila as most places open only a few days a week. The food here was good and the price was reasonable. WE tryed fish and steak and both things were really good.

When it is open you should go. We had both Fish and pork chops with a little mutton as well. Fresh food well done with a fun atmosphere you can't go wrong eating here and the prices are resonable for what you get.

Luckily my wife and i discovered RJ's early during our recent four week stay on Utila and went there often. I got so I looked forward to Sun, Wed, and Fri when it was open.

Barracuda was good, Wahoo was also good. Rest of the table's fish looked good. Friendly staff. A friend ordered the pork and the serving was huge.

So try to tell it as short as possible. I ordered the barracuda that was terrible by the way and I became very very sick. So some locals told me no one is eating that fish because in this time of the year it's very dangerous because you can get poisoned by the fish because the little fish are eating... More
