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...More

I came here due to the convenient location, the great tripadvisor reviews and the enticing smell of grilled meat. The interior is quite unspectacular. I ordered a grilled Mahi Mahi with various side dishes. The Mahi Mahi was well prepared but not seasoned at all....More
