Pricey for an average experience…. The ribs are served with a tasty sauce and the chips are always a treat. For good pulled pork, however, you better go somewhere else. The salad bar is perhaps the best deal in value,with a variety of choices.

We ate here after our meetings were over. We had some wait time but the food is worth waiting for and we had a seat at the bar, so we both had a drink. Our table was ready in no time. I had the appetizers, garlic ribs and skins. The skins are hand cut potatoes, then deep fat fried, you... More

I had a half rack of baby back ribs and salad/soup bar for about $25 with fries. Waitstaff has been excellent every time we have been to CJs. I really like their soups! Last night was a creamy tomatoe and it was awesome. The ribs are some of the best i have had that are not from a barbecue joint.... More

The food is ok but definately not worth the price. For the money you can eat at a lot of other places in town that are much better. Food was better than my previous trips so hopefully getting better.

I was surprised at the fine quality of the BBQ since I live in a state that is known for great BBQ! It was quite good, as was the service. Very nice, broad menu of more than just BBQ. This place has been in business for more than twenty-five years. Eat here and you will see why.

As soon as you walk in the door, the aroma of smoked BBQ carries you away. The atmosphere is open and airy, and the food (and their quantities) meet all expectations. Three of us met there for lunch. It was the first time I'd been there in several years. Now I know what I was missing. We'll be back. Two... More

I have been coming here with my husband for years and have become very attached to their prime rib. My husband loves the sausage or the shrimp poor boy. The only real disappointment was the prime rib sandwich which went from a real slice of prime rib to the thin sliced stuff which everyone else in town serves. So I... More

This was the first time visiting this location and so glad I did. This is a local business that serves ribs, burgers with their own personal flair. It was excellent food and wonderful service, I had the crab wontons and half rack ribs the seasoning was excellent. The service is friendly and the prices were comparable to chain restaurants.

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
