Last night I went to DJ's at Belizean Shores. Haven't eaten in that location for years. Several different operators, not sure what they had- just didn't go.
Well, last night we drove south and stopped at the first place that was open - DJ's it was. Super impressed and SO glad we went there.
Different and very sensible menu - two basic salad choices that can have shrimp or chicken added to make a full meal. An excellent list of appetizers - we had chicken poppers and even those traditional snacks were done very differently, and they were fantastic. The honey-mustard dip was to die for. There is a long list of remarkable burgers, and a"pasta bowl" section - bowl of pasta, pick your topping (alfredo? Chipotle cream? old fashioned mack-n-cheese?) Also some great sandwiches. I opted for fish and chips - huge portion of delicate fish fillets done in panco breading. Light, tasty and NOT greasy. Choice of fresh plantain chips or french fries on the side. I could not finish my dinner last night and just now woofed down my left-over fish fillet. It was not tough or greasy even the next morning. The room is pleasant (you do have to climb 3 flights of stairs), the wait staff was very nice. The menu is the same for lunch through dinner. My friends had - a burger / chicken-fried-steak-chicken on mashed potatoes ......... they loved their food. Portions are large. Prices reflect the quality and portion size. My fish and chips dinner was $18 US. Limited but good selection of wine - one white, one red, one rose - each one a good vintner. I cannot wait to go back. Really.

If you like burgers (and I know you do), you will really like it. Now if they would add sweet-potato fries to the menu. Other than Victoria House (too far for me) do you know who serves them?

Also on the menu - stuffed backed potatoes ...... forgot to mention that.

Diane....Just a bit confused of this restaurants location? 3rd floor? Is this the blue building across from the bridge's toll booth? On the back side there's a restaurant on the bottom floor. Belizean Shores?

North side of the island 3 miles north of town centre right when the paved road ends.

Belizean Shores is a condo project north of town. It's been there for about 15 years. Drive north until the concrete paving ends - you'll be at Belizean Shores.
Time to get out and about if you don't know the lay of the land - you will have a nice time exploring.

There seemed to be only one DJ's restaurant on face book & that "was" across from the bridge's toll booth.... I do know where Belizean Shores is, Thank You - it was the name of the restaurant that threw me.....we'll be sure to check it out

We stayed at Belizean Shores last Feb and we got negative comments about the food at DJ's. We just ate lunch there when we arrived and it was just okay. Maybe they have improved. We thought the food next store at CoCo Beach to be very good.
We'll have to give DJ's another chance next time.

I've recently eaten there three times.
Two times were outstanding.
One was so-so.

Guess it depends on the day and the cook .....
