“Best burgers in Utila”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2012

The burgers are awesome! You can also count them on having very cold beer. Great placw if t to catch a Football game while on the island.

They have a deck if you want to gofor a swim between beers

It is though quite expensive for Utila standards. Normal dinner can ring up 300 Lempiras per person quiteeasily

“Good but odd”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2012

Their barbeque beef brisket and pulled pork were good full meals. A shrimp burger consisted of 6 unbreaded shrimp on a hamburger bun with lettuce. Friendly, had a local feel

“On the water in Sandy Bay, can't get better than that!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2012

Love the Driftwood, it's like another home with GREAT FOOD. Texas style burgers and grill, fish, steak, ribs and just too much good food to name. Sharon and Bruce will treat you like family. Great bar, outside upstairs deck seating, drive your boat right up to the dock!

“Absolutely Fantastic. Best Food in Utila and Great Vibe.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2012

Simply great food in a great location with great people behind the counter and at the bar. The seafood soup, BBQ and tex-mex type fare are all wonderful. Slightly pricey by Utila standards but still cheap. Well worth it. We came back many times during our stay and each time we enjoyed not only the food but the atmosphere and conversations with the owners and other guests.

“Best of Utila”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2012

The Drift!! The wonderful owners - Bruce and Sharon as well as their sweet dog, make you feel at home as soon as you walk in. The views are beautiful from any seat, including the bar. Definitely the BEST burger on the island, as well as the best Texas BBQ I’ve had anywhere. Don’t miss the pulled pork and brisket if you’re lucky enough to be there on a day when they are on the menu. The pork ribs are amazing and even the french fries are way up there on the “best of” list. Add to the great food and hospitality their famous “Monkey Bawls” (made with their homemade kahlua) and you’ve got a perfect night in Utila! I can’t wait to be back.
