Went here with friends and we shared our selections. There were no losers, just winners. They have 2 locations: 1 on 5 de Mayo and 1 on Pina Playa. We went to the new location on Pina Playa. We all want to return. Great job.

I just had a great meal at J&R - wonderful ribs, a choice of sauces (try the Pina Chiltopin), fresh hot fries and best of all a nice picnic table and Matilde...the best server we've had in a long time. Thank you, Matilde..

I revisited J&R Ribs, on my recent trip, and was delighted with the quality and service I experienced. While the ribs I ordered were as good as in the past, the service was much improved. I recommend mixing the regular house sauce with the spicier...More

I was hoping to leave a good review but I just can’t. The place is cute and appears clean, the service was good. It’s just not good barbecue. The ribs looked nothing like the photos either? Maybe it’s gone downhill? Could be a coincidence but...More
