Open three times a week, RJ’s offerings include excellent fresh seafood grill (barracuda, kingfish and more). The seating is in a covered area and may get a bit stuffy when there is no breeze.

It took us a while to remember it is only open certain days. And it gets packed, so arrive early! No matter what, food and service are great and the prices very favorable.

This is a nice place with a good service. The Barbecue is very tasteful and the beef was perfect in time. This is the best Barbecue with big dishes on the island.

RJ's - right across the street from Alton's - is great. They are open Wed Fri and Sun, which is convenient as you know iin advance where you're eating those three nights. It's not American BBQ - it's grilled things with typical Honduran sides. ~200...More
