Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

If you wanna step back in time on a beach holiday, this is the place to do it! Great music, all your favourite beach food, chilled environment and friendly service. We’ll be back for sure.

Lady who runs the joint was a pain to deal with, incredibly condescending and rude, food was average, could find better quality down the reduced isle at woolies, wouldn’t definitely not recommend, don’t fund her lifestyle 💉💊

This iconic takeaway/diner/convenience store gets rave reviews so I guess we ordered the wrong thing. This is not a place to order fish and chips. The hoki was not fresh – it tasted and looked like the frozen fish from the supermarket freezer. On the...plus side, the service was friendly and fast.More

…or I would give a lower score, but the hoki was small, tasteless and had been frozen (not fresh, despite being a literal 70m from the ocean beach), the chips undercooked, schnitzel overcooked, lemon wedge juiceless, plain salt instead of chicken salt as requested and...small servings at inflated prices. I scanned TripAdvisor reviews for a couple of dozen nearby takeaways before concluding this shop wouldn’t disappoint, especially as my mother loves eating fish but has mobility issues that curtail her outings. We arrived 40 minutes before the 2pm closing time, disappointingly to find the grill already switched off, so no burgers on offer. I ordered Mum’s, then tried to scan the menu board whilst being bombarded with unhelpful suggestions by the staff. I finally settled on a chicken schnitzel, plus a bucket of chips but it seems by then Mum’s fish and chips were already underway. Our orders were ready about a minute or two later, so it seems a precooked schnitzel was reheated, and the one serve of chips simply divided between our two meals, as each serve amounted to about half a bucket‘s worth at best. Admittedly there must be some skill to ruining a perfectly good chicken schnitzel. Perhaps this skill accounts for JJ’s prices and their otherwise undeserved reputation. (FWIW first TripAdvisor review - hope that conveys our disappointment.)More

They advertise 'The best burgers on the coast' and they are right. Fast, fresh, full of flavour, good price, friendly service, just awesome.

After toughing it out on the beach and roads, was time for a big feed - definitely worth the stop. Great sized burgers, freshly made, excellent golden chips and quick, friendly service. Booth style seating, some rockin’ tunes if you are up for it, otherwise...they can turn it down 😀😀 Photo doesn’t do the works burger justice - but with egg, bacon, beetroot, pineapple, cooked onion and toasted bun...mmmmMore

An older style themed takeaway store. The usual takeaway type menu from fish & chips, burgers & sandwiches to order. We had the sandwiches which were generous in fillings. Service was excellent , the woman who served us on the counter was bubbly & helpful....Also stocks many corner store items. Included inside is pinball style machines & booth seating. Outdoor seating also available. Best for quickie lunches & breakfasts. Give it a go.More

Bought the works burger, fish and chips and the seafood basket. Burger was alright for what you pay but the fish and chips was below average and the seafood basket was all frozen leftovers over cooked aka fried burnt nearly! Wasn't worth the stop.... the...service was also mediocre. Staff took awhile to warm up.More

As I bit into my burger all I could taste was an undercooked meat flavour... almost dirty. I’m not sure what it was but I couldn’t eat the burger. I kept trying and with each bite something just didn’t taste right. There were also mounds...of chewy bacon fat on the burger too... surely could be trimmed or cooked better. My husband didn’t enjoy his either because it was a sloppy mess. We spent about $45 on 3 x burgers (2 meals and one burger on it’s own).More

Hi people! While staying at the Crystal Beach Apartments on and off over the years (about 9 years roughly), if I ever needed a little refreshment or a burger, or even fish and chips JJs is a hop, skip and a jump away from the...apartments!. The prices were a little costly but the quality and quantity of food is reasonable for Gold Coasts standards. I think from memory (I could be wrong since I have traveled a lot), I thought I was going crazy but I saw a can of TAB cola and various other drinks at the store during one of my visits and it gave me memories of the good old days. I also "think" there was a ramp to get to the store down the left hand side of the building from the road so it is wheelchair friendly. (If the management of JJs sees this post please correct me if I'm wrong!) The staff have always been friendly, well spoken and neat and tidy. I have seen staff come and go and I'm not sure if there has even been a change of management at all but the service has always been the same and the store itself always reminds me of the good old days. I recommend this place if you need a snack or refreshment especially if your going to spend some quality time with the family on the Tugan Beach.More
