Went in on the recommendation of the clerk at the hotel. Busy little spot. Had the ribs. Ok, a bit pricy compared to spots in the city. Overall good service, meal was fine.

Had a good dinner here this week while in Cochrane on business. I had the rotisserie chicken and my friend had a pizza. Both were good. Would be nice if the chicken would be served with some type of dipping sauce. Fries were freezer fries but were decent. Skipped the ribs. I know the people in Cochrane love them, but... More

Asked at the local Canadian Tire store where to eat in Cochrane, cashier was not helpful but customer in line said, you can't come to Cochrane and not go to JRs for ribs, especially honey garlic. So my son and I did and reasonable price and very tasty...and I would recommend...not fine dining, but good tasty food.

Although the menu might not reflect a Texan cuisine, I sure felt as though I was in the deep south as I entered J.R.'s Bar & Grill. The restaurant's decor was amazing!!! I loved the wood-burning and Aboriginal artwork on display throughout the restaurant. The service was on-point!!! I LOVED their high-quality fries...the best fries I have had in a... More

Had the ribs again after not having any for a couple years and they are just as lip smacking as ever. The price may have gone up a little since the last time but not a wallet breaker yet. Delivery was quick and the staff was friendly. Looking forward to the next visit.

The main course was definitely better. Friendly, welcoming staff, clean place - I'd go back! I hear the ribs are amazing - the guy next... More
