Very friendly service by the waitress, you feel like they are happy to welcome you. The waitress was very efficient. RJ's had the best burger in Statesboro, it was an all beef patty, now It is bigger patty but it feels as if it has some filler and it's not all beef. The fried chicken used to be delicious but...

This place is a true gem! It's one of the only family (non-bar) restaurants in the boro that has been here since I was a kid (or before ). I'd definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We had not eaten at RJs in quite a while, but we were pleased to see that some of the old charm has survived and thrived with new ownership. The food options are great and the service is still the same warm and friendly service that has always been a part of RJs. I had the fried shrimp and they... More

I loved RJ's growing up. Used to be one of the best restaurants in town. It had an amazing soup and salad bar, but they took it out. Quality had been declining for some time now. It recently changed ownership and the food doesn't even taste the same. Disappointed.

The go-to place for breakfast for locals. It is Snooky's breakfast menu at RJ's! The cheese grits are not to be missed.

All around terrible experience. Rancid steak and pork chops, was never told that the credit card machine was down until it was time to pay. Food that actually was edible was bland. Won't return.

I came into RJ's for lunch over this summer and it was a much different experience than the first time I had it in 2015. I ordered the fried chicken plate with mashed potatoes and green beans and I was surprised to find out that their fried chicken was boneless and glued together like some frozen mass-produced slop. The fried... More

Had to have one last meal at R.J.'s while Randy is still the owner. After more than 30 years, he is retiring and has sold the restaurant. You don't find many places like RJ's anymore: Locally owned and operated where you know the owner and staff and you always see people you know eating there. RJ's is a Statesboro institution... More

Sunday buffet is big draw. Get there early to avoid after church rush. Not as big as new buffet restaurant out by mall. But a local Statesboro original for decades. Long time owner, Randy just sold and retired. Another local successful restauranteur purchased and expects to continue traditions including weekend night seafood buffet.

If you like catfish but haven't really had a good experience, I would recommend every Georgian go out of their way on a trip to the beach to stop at RJs Grill in Statesboro GA for their amazing catfish. It is literally the best catfish I've ever eaten. I came back after a number of months and it was just... More
