Called in after looking it up on Trip adviser and they were very welcoming. A good selection of different burgers available served efficiently. We sat in the window and soon the place was full and buzzing.

Got my self a steak sandwich that was awesome. The meet was tender and the portion was for two. The staff was nice and friendly and the service was fast. A place i can recommend if you are looking for good food for a reasonable...price. I was actually very surprised by the price as i live and know Iceland.More

I love Iceland and this was my first time staying in Akureryi. I had done my usual research before hand and DJ Grill was def on the list. Although I was visited with a package company, I prefer to do things solo, and although we...had some discounts at other places as part of the trip, our rep reaffirmed it was a great place for a burger so I knew I was making a good choice for dinner on my first night. I was so happy to be back in Iceland so it was great to sit and watch the world go by or a bit. It wasn't super busy when I visited so service as quick. Staff were friendly and helpful. I had one of their recommendations of a mexican themed burger and it was tasty! Nowhere is cheap in Iceland so in the scheme of that it was a fair price. There was also free refills on the soda, which was good, and a station of condiments and other bits of pieces that was nice (like Tommi's in RVK). The fries were good and i enjoyed my meal a lot. If i had been visiting for longer i would have come back to try other stuff on the menu - this is just a good spot for tasty food - nowt fancy - just done well & looks cool. I wish I had spent a bit more time and chatted to the staff as they were not too busy and I like to chat to locals, rather than hang out with other English people :-) One day ill be back!More

Seriously. I have been here for 4 months and this is the first time I have eaten here! I love a burger on my day off, as an unhealthy treat. This is the best. Great beef patty, hot fries and a well toasted sesame bun....Loads of choice on the menu (I chose No.3 burger) and the prices are reasonable. Don’t eat burgers anywhere else!More

This great restaurant is near the waterfront and although not large, does offer a wide range of tasty burgers. The first evening there was a little mix up with our order which was quickly put right and showed us that the owner cares about his...customers. Although we generally don't eat in the same place twice when on holiday, we felt that the quality and value of the food here would be hard to beat and so we returned and had some tasty double-burgers which hit the spot!More
