“The best burger”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

if you are still searching your search is over. This is the best burger we have had in San Pedro. They remind me of In & Out burgers and fries, but better. The juicy, tangy, melt in your mouth burger is great. And enough varieties to please all. Service was excellent and you get a beachfront view.

“It does not get any better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

OK so the hunt for a good hamburger was on. San Pedro has great food but sometimes a real juicy and tasty burger is not easy to find. We had heard about DJ's at a recent fundraiser held on the near north side of town. We went to check it out but the kitchen was closed. We tried again while running errands on morning, still closed did not open till noon. Third time was the charm and let me tell you the wait was worth it. Everything about this place is nice. A very nicely done restaurant/bar with a great view of the park and the sea. But to the food.

I had a bacon, ham and cheese burger which was simply outstanding. Everything about the burger from the bun to the veggies to the tasty burger ham and bacon was spot on. The bun, made fresh, actually held together despite the burger being really thick with all the fixings. The sweet potato fries were thin cut and perfectly prepared with just the right amount of crispness. My partner had popcorn shrimp with regular fries, hand cut fresh - not frozen. The shrimp were butterflied and fried with just a light crisp batter. The chipotle dipping sauce was nice and spicy. The cost of the meal was a most pleasant surprise given how expensive burgers are in certain restaurants that are not half as good.

Drinks had a generous pour in them and very priced just right. Will I be back, you betcha. A real welcome addition to the San Pedro dining scene.

“Great new location, outstanding sandwiches!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

We watched while the remodel of the east side of Oscar's Gym next to the park took place and knew a bar/restaurant was going in. We had been hearing from several people that we had to go to DJ's (which we knew was located elswhere but had never tried) for incredible sandwiches/burgers. We were really pleased to learn that that remodel was now DJ's!! We were told that the Braised shredded beef sandwich on the fresh baked daily roll/bun or any hamburger was the best anywhere and after trying both (got the Belizean burger too) with sweet potato fries (hard to find anywhere) we emphatically agree! DJ says everything is made fresh daily and that the beef is never frozen and hand blended for the patties from various choice cuts. The Braised beef just melts in your mouth after over 12 hours of slow cooking/attention. We'll defintely be returning often!!

“Great pub food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

Our arrival to the island was late so we went to the first place we could find. Our good fortune brought us to DJ's. They were out of hamburgers so we had shrimp sandwiches instead. Again our good fortune because they were fabulous, especially the string french fries that accompanied them. The service was a bit slow but we're on holiday, so this was sort of an introduction to slow our pace down. We are going back there today to try out their chicken wings because many of the locals, including some of the tourists, have told us they are very good.

Thank you for choosing us while on vacation :)
Here in Belize we have a saying "on Belize time"... While that may be true, we do take our time here. DJ doesn't even start forming the patty until it us ordered, doesn't cut the bun until the burger is ready, avd the lust goes on. The belief that fresh is always better, not necessarily faster.

In the end we really appreciate you joining us and very happy you enjoyed your meals here at our lil seaside restaurant

Hope to see you again soon

“The Best Burger with a very welcoming atmospere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

Our group heard about DJ's from some locals and we were not disappointed. I had the Carnivore burger Ham Beef etc. The burger truly was the best I have ever had. Grilled home baked bun with smoked ham and well seasoned hamburger. The flavors blended to a full flavored delicious meal. A fun environment full of energy. Just south of the bridge turn toward the beach and you are there. Enjoy!
