Fresh New Restaurant in Orlando: JJ’s Grille

JJ's Grill - Fresh New Restaurant in OrlandoI have this thing for hidden gem kinda restaurants. You’ve probably noticed, but I’m not the fanciest cat in the crew either, so when I started hearing more and more about this new restaurant in Orlando, I took a little trip south to check it out.

JJ’s Grille is located off of Curry Ford and Crystal Lake. It’s hidden away in a shopping plaza (2950 Curry Ford Road, Orlando, FL 32806) as it freshens up the old block. I stopped in, I snapped some pics and, of course, I ate! The verdict’s in; are you ready?

New Restaurant Review – JJ’s Grille

JJ's Grille - Chicken Pita

I loved it.

We spoke to Julio, the owner, for a little bit and he was very kind. You could just tell how much he loved the flavors and explaining his vision for blending Mexican and Mediterranean specialities. He didn’t point even out how foolish I sounded when I had to ask what Tabboulen was as I butchered the name — big plus. And if you’re a lentil lover, this is just the place for you!

There are lots of options, 3 kinds of rice, 3 kinds of meat, vegetarian options, hummus, flatbreads, bowls, house-made pita chips and more. My favorite was hands down the fresh hummus and pita chips… The J-Bouli Salad is unique and fun too. He let us try a sample and it was irresistible. Check out the full menu here >>
