As usual, the food here is good, very good if you get here early and not close to closing time. The accompaniments are good. The place is busy, very busy, almost to the point of chaotic with a somewhat intolerable level of noise. As an old favorite, will most likely return.

Went to CJ's last night for dinner with my boyfriend. In the past, we have had good experiences, usually ordering their prime rib dinner to split. I ordered the shrimp tacos and he ordered the prime rib French dip sandwich. His food was very good according to him. My shrimp tacos came out and I took a bite from one... More

This place drives me crazy. You eat, you hate the dry, over cooked, smokeless, scrawny ribs, resolve to never darken their door and then you do. Great meal. Was I wrong? Did I misjudge them the first time. How about "NO!" Ate tonight. Dry, over cooked, smokeless, tasteless ribs stripped of nearly all their meet. Disgusting. One of my worst... More

Thought I'd stop by the CJ's Sidelines and grab some ribs to go home and watch the Football game. What a disappointment. The guy behind the bar taking the order had no personality and seemed rushed. I ordered 1/2 rack of baby backs with coleslaw and skin on fries. When I got home, no coleslaw, two containers of Barbecue sauce... More

CJ's is a great place to eat. You can order off the dinner or lunch menu. There is a little buffet available with soup selection. Often their appetizers are enough food for a meal! I like the bar and array of television screens to catch up on my ESPN news!

My husband and I had lunch here because of the convenient location. My husband always enjoys their salad bar - and also ordered the prime rib sandwich. He said it was delicious. I ordered the taco salad. It was fabulous. It came with generous portions of sour cream, salsa and guacamole. Our server frequently refilled our beverages. The cream cheese... More

Probably the best ribs in town and excellent cole slaw. I've never had anything but the ribs. Parking can be a bit tight.

This place was busy busy, but for the service and the food, I can understand that. For a place to just relax and visit over some drinks and food, this is the place to go. Price wise, not so great.

Consistent good food. Salad bar is plentiful, soups usually tasty. Ribs are hit or miss, sometimes too dry. All and all a good "standard" place to eat.
