Found the place on the Key West web site before our trip down south. Guy Fieri of Drive ins, Diners, & Dives nailed it perfectly. It's a covered walk up with 5 seats on 2 counters off the sidewalk about 5 feet up and 2,...More

We spent summer vacation last year in Bar Harbor and Portland, and I quickly decided that DJ's provided better lobster rolls than any we tried in Maine. The lobster meat was cold, served on a warm, tasty, slightly garlicky bun and was excellent in flavor...More

This is a MUST STOP when in Key West. We had the garlic shrimp roll and the lobster roll. Both were insanely delicious. Super casual atmosphere with limited outdoor seating. We could easily eat here every day.

We had the lobster rolls and were so impressed! Delicious and the price was amazingly good considering the amount of lobster on this sandwich!

A rather unassuming lunch stand with an outdoor patio "through that door." The lobster rolls were huge and fabulous. But the greatest item was the finest clam chowder on this planet. Beats Boston. A spot rated by "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives" by the way.

After having come to Key West for many years and never having eaten at DJ's, we decided to give it a try. Someone had said that their lobster rolls were the best in Key West. I really did not care for the texture. Maybe they...More
