Nice bar

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).

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

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

The ribs are their best item on the menu. Their burgers are also pretty good. The service is usually good as well. This is a good place to call in an order and pick it up. The order is always ready when we arrive.

We had been in the casino one other time and thought the food coming in always looked good. This time we ate in the bar. The gentleman behind the bar was AWESOME! COLD tap beer and the center of the bar has a brass open cooler with beer on ice(as it should be). Had the taco salad(one of the best... More
