I love a great burger and CJ's delivers every time! I was meeting a friend and because we wanted a 'quiet' seat, we were offered a booth in the casino/Side Lines. I had never been over there before and anticipated it would be noisy. I was pleasantly surprised when it was absolutely quiet. The service was great and of course,... More

Doesn't matter if you are hungry for a thick slice of Prime Rib, a rack of Baby Back Ribs, a Pulled Pork sandwich, or appetizers -- they are ALL excellent

I try to stop here every time I make it to Billings. My husband & I have been enjoying their garlic ribs (OMG) & the sandwiches & sauce for many years! It never changes; I can always expect great food & good service!!

Only stopped in for a drink and an appetizer but after our experience we will be back to try their lunch. Cozy bar and my husband was happy to see the Vikings helmet on top of the TV (in Bar).

We were very pleased to find CJ's for dinner. We stopped early and very few patrons were in the restaurant yet, but we had a delicious dinner in a wonderful atmosphere with excellent and attentive service. We will happily tell everyone who might go near Billings to check this place out.

I visited CJ's for lunch, to day, with a friend. Both of us ordered their Mesquite Burgers, which were cooked to order and very good. Their homemade chips are delicious and go very well with a burger. Service was a little slow but it was the lunch hour. Our server could have been a little more attentive by refilling our... More

For many years CJ's had fallen off my restaurant radar. I was reintroduced to it by a co-worker and was impressed with the food. We ordered the four meat combo and split it between the two of us. For $27.00 it was enough food to stuff us both. The ribs were nice and tender I really enjoyed the pulled pork.... More

We had CJ's cater a business function in early April of 2015, and I was disappointed in the taste of the brisket and pulled pork. I have visited CJ's in the past and thought it to be fairly good for service and taste. In particular, I like its salad bar. For this event, however, I thought the meats and chips... More
