“truth in advertising”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2014

Just grillin' is a wonderfully cheerful, unpretentious quick serve joint, a great local gathering place for a heaping plate of grilled flying fish, jerk chicken and banks beer.
There's a kind of tropical 50s american graffiti innocence about this restaurant that puts a smile on your face, while fully satisfying the tastebuds.

“Tasty food, great value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2014

Great value for money, simple menu and relaxed good service. We had the shrimp, jerk chicken and the ribs. All accompanied by our choice of grilled potatoes and grilled vegetables. Everything was delicious and very filling. None of us had room for dessert unfortunately. This restaurant is a great choice for a good value tasty meal, nothing fancy about it whilst still retaining a good atmosphere.

“Food taste is getting better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014

We love our usual visit to Just Grilling when we are on the island. We went at 7pm and was already packed inside. However, some of the tables are takeaway people waiting. They took our order before we were seated and then called us once a table was free.

My wife had the fish and she said it was just as good as across the road to Tides the night earlier. I had the mouthwatering cheeseburger which had a bbq sting to it. Fresh coleslaw was how it should be.

Great value service ok.

“Dismal fast food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

Not a good place to visit. Grotty fast food. No atmosphere. Minimal service. Would not recommend. Much better places in Holetown to eat.

“Very good local food (again)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014

My wife and I went to Just Grillin' about 1 year ago. We liked the food then and still do. The flying fish is about the best that we've had on the island. Something new is table service...order your food from the server and have it brought to your table. This works for me since I'm not a local and the server can answer any questions that you may have. Tipping is appropriate.
