Description: Originally established in 1957 and located where the Walgreens is now. D.J. purchased the restaurant in 1995, he soon grew out of the small location and moved it to the current spot and changed the name to D.J.'s Diner. The locals spot for sure in the heart of Key Largo with tons of parking up front and on sides and back of the building for R.V. and truck parking. D.J. caters to the island people but understnds that the tourist want to get out on the water a.s.a.p. so the sevice is fast and attentative. Serving large plates of home made style food and a huge menu of local fish specials and made fresh to order breakfast, lunch and seasonally dinner. Come try this great land mark restaurant you will be happy you did.

“Egg white omelette was fabulous”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

Ordered an egg white omelette with spinach, feta and gyro meat. We also ordered a biscuit and gravy. Wow. The cook and server were both young men. Both polite, engaging, great service all around. If this was home, it would be my every am hangout.

“Great service, very pleasant staff, good food”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

This little place is easy to miss - which is too bad - the food's excellent. The waitstaff were very pleasant, friendly, and speedy (a nice combination). They were very flexible with the menu as well.

“Long Overdue”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

This place and especially the staff as left such an impression on me that 2 yrs later I am keeping my promise to write about the epic experience I had at this restaurant and now knowing that'll be in Key Largo soon my first stop will be here, my mouth is watering up just from thinking about their amazing breakfast. So, i hope that the following staff will still be there:
Ashley, Cathy, Brianna, David, and Emily. I thank you guys for being such happy people in the morning. Im sure if any of them have moved on then I look forward to meeting new epic staff memebers and like 2 yrs ago i will be there every morning until my last day before i head out.

“Great customer service and a nice breakfast”
Reviewed April 8, 2014 via mobile

Great little diner! The service was outstanding here. We had the Western Mess and the French Toast Cinnamon Crunch. Both were very good. The combination of ingredients in the Western Mess was so delicious - the potatoes were nicely browned. The French Toast was slightly sweetened and needed just a dab of syrup. Great Place!
