“Great Stodge at a Great Price”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

As I've been using this place for decades on my way to/from the Highlands on mountaineering trips, I decided it was about time I wrote a review on it (although I was there yesterday). First off, this isn't fancy dining - formerly known as a 'greasy spoon' but now a bit more upmarket - where you get a good helping of basic (but tasty) food at a great price - just the sort of stuff you want if you're heading off climbing/hiking/skiing/canoeing. In saying that, it's used extensively by truckers and other regular drivers, and locals. The breakfast fry-ups are legendary (sold all day) but they do all sorts of other stuff and a decent kids' menu. They are often rushed off their feet because the place is often very busy (not surprisingly) but the service is always okay and you never have to wait too long.

For value, this place cannot be beaten!

“Fresh food, great prices, quick service = a must stop, always!”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

My partners parents live in the Highlands, so this is a regular trip-stop for us. The food is always exceptional, quick, reasonably priced and plentiful. We have never been disappointed and would recommend the Ballinluig to anyone - and often do!!!

“Great fuel stop for you and your car !”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Ballinluig services is a great stop with plenty of parking space, fuel, shop and the excellent Motor Grill. THe food is wholesome , portions huge and the quality really good for the price. The service is great - even when very busy and the staff always courteous and cheerful.

“Fresh food, cooked to order.”
Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

We went in for a quick lunch and were most impressed by the service and speed of service. All the food was cooked fresh to order and was excellent. This is a Motor Grill but it is still the best one that we have ever been to. Take a break on your journey at Ballinluig.

Dot expect anything fancy, it's a motor grill. Saying that, service is excellent and the coffee is great! Food is ok, don't expect anything fancy. Saying that, the cakes are great!
