“Lousy food and aweful service AND THE FOOD MADE ME ILL”
Reviewed November 14, 2010

I went for the first time yesterday I was with a large group of people, who were considering making LJ's a monthly destination let me assure you this will not be happening. I ordered the Pan cake sampler, this contains one of each of their pancakes, One regular pancake, one bacon crumble pancake and one sweet potato pancake. After placing my order I realized that the bacon crumble pancake had bacon mixed into the pancake batter which I fond gross ans the sweet pot had nuts in in witch would make me ill. So i REQUESTED TO CHANGE MY ORDER AND THEY REFUSED TO DO SO,

I was extremely hungry so I choked down the dry over cooked pancakes and ate around the nuts. The pancakes sat like lead in my stomach until about 8 that night was sick the whole day.To add insult to injury they had the nerve to add the tip to my bill. So they dictated what I would pay for terrible service.

I called the restaurant to complain and asked for the manager she told me she would do nothing about if you want horrible food and rude service LJls is the place for you, if not stay away!

“Dried out meat and soggy fries do not a good BBQ make.”
Reviewed April 24, 2010

Sorry,but in a plaza row of really good restaurants this place comes in dead last in my book.
It was unkempt and boardering on dirty. The decor is dismal and the food fell very short of our expectations.It was not at all busy when we went and yet the waitress still managed to get our straight off the menu hassle free order wrong. The Pork and the brisket was luke warm and tasted like it had been cooked two days before and slapped on the grill to heat up a little. We both felt a little sick after eating about half of it. The handcut fries were soggy although the potato salad was very tasty and the bbq beans were sickneningly sweet.
To add insult to injury the bill was altogether too high fot the portions and quality of the meal. There are far better choices next door at the other restaurants, Rasoi and Garden Grille.

“I love LJ's”
Reviewed July 10, 2009

I have been going to LJ's ever since they were located in the hood on douglas ave. They have sInce moved to a better location near the east side, not much has changed. The food is still always fresh and tasty, and the prices remained manageable. It's probably the best BBQ in RI, and most restaurants of its kind can't complete with the cleanliness and quality of the food.

LJ's motto "Eat it n' Beat it" sounds like a Lil Kim lyric, but the food is great! Give it a try!
