Good Ribs

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.

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

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

Went to dinner on Sunday, First ordered drinks. I ordered water and mixed drink. Other orders were a soda and a mixed drink. The soda and water were delivered first but water was placed by mother (who had ordered vodka tonic) Took a while to realize it was water. I ordered a dinner and salad, others ordered just a salad...

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.
