I had been seeing the posts about the stuffed pork roast and finally got there. It was fantastic! The stuffing is jalepenos and onion. What a great addition it was to the pork. Also served with beans, rice and Cole slaw. It was a great meal and definitely filled me up. My husband had the breakfast burrito and said it... More

By far best locally owned place around. Probably best value in town. Friendly and personal service. Has best local fish in town.

I have nothing negative to say about Dawns Grill and Go. It was the first place we ate at upon our arrival to Placencia. We had been in Belize for some time and had really been craving something other than chicken. The burgers were not Kansas quality but sure beat anything else we had seen. My boyfriend had the pork...

I love stopping into Dawn's for good local eats! She always has great seafood choices and often has the grill going. Its a family run restaurant so the atmosphere is local and friendly.

We ate here once for lunch & twice for dinner. All 3 meals were delicious. I'm not a fan of seafood so I had the chicken dish for dinner (twice!) and chicken fajitas for lunch - and both dishes were delicious. My friend had lobster, a sandwich & fish tacos. Everything was fresh, extremely friendly & clean! A must go... More

We tried to branch out and try all of the best places in town to eat but this was the third place and we got stuck and have to keep coming back. So far we have had creole lobster, deep fried lobster, and curry lobster. Dawn says she also makes it two other ways, garlic lobster and fried lobster. We... More

We ate here on September 21, 2016 which is Belize Independence Day. These ladies were all so welcoming and willing to serve us lunch, even though we didn't get there until 2:00 in the afternoon. Lunch was turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and Key Lime pie for dessert. We serve that for Thanksgiving Day in America! Made us feel... More
