The place to visit when the only thing that will satisfy you is a giant gourmet burger is Meskla Dos. It’s loved for its local-style barbecue and hearty burgers. For something a little different, order the French Toast Slammer burger. This beauty features a homemade eight-ounce beef patty topped with a fried egg and served in a French toast bun. It comes with both garlic aioli and maple syrup, making it a delight to eat at any time of the day. The fried fish burger is also a much-loved favorite — a fried coconut-infused catfish fillet topped with a tangy scallion sauce. The medley of flavors bursting out of this sandwich is enough to make even the most dedicated meat eater order the fish for a change.

Known for its authentic, colorful and undisputedly delicious Thai cuisine, Ban Thai hosts a much-loved lunch buffet Monday through Saturday. This is the perfect opportunity for Thai food novices to sample several different flavors simultaneously while they work out which dishes they like best. If you find yourself dining in the evening instead, simply order a few different dishes to share between the table in order to still get the same multi-flavor experience. The shrimp Phat Thai, lemongrass chicken and curried prawns with pineapple are all great picks.

Combining flavors from Jamaica, Guam and the Philippines, the Jamaican Grill Tumon serves up a variety of delicious barbecued dishes that they call ‘serious food.’ Not a place to go to if you’re only slightly peckish, the portions here are generous, and the food incredibly filling. Both the jerk marinated rib-eye steak and the Ja-mango ribs are examples of the best barbecue food on the island. Most of the dishes can be ordered to go or enjoyed in the restaurant, making it the perfect place to pop by and pick up a meaty picnic barbecue to enjoy at one of Guam’s many beautiful beaches.
