This was the last evening of our New England driving trip and we were on something of dining overload. We had eaten so many indecent, almost gluttonous meals, that we were looking for something a little different. We decided on Mexican, and further narrowed it down to CJ’s; perhaps less about the TA reviews, but more because it was close... More

We never thought that we would have enjoyed a place so much but the people are friendly, the atmosphere is comfortable and the food is very good. Would definitely recommend.

Had "trail" nachos and half a rack of ribs with "corral" fries and "cactus" slaw. Completely nondescript. The nachos were a plate of chips with cheese and a literal sprinkling of way too salty ground beef, tomatoes, lettuce, and (3) jalapenos with a tiny cup of sour cream. The ribs were unnoteworthy (especially for $18), came with tiny bit of... More

CJ's is the fifth Mexican or Tex-Mex place we have tried since moving to Manchester. Of the five restaurants CJ's is the best of the bunch, so far. My wife had the Mix Mex platter with a chimichanga, a burrito, & an enchilada. It was well seasoned and had a good flavor. The spice was just right. The refried beans... More

Based on TripAdvisor recommendations, we decided to try this place which was close to our hotel. Sad to say I was disappointed. We found the food overpriced and of average quality, and, more annoying, the waiter overbearing in that he consistently try to sell us things we weren't interested in. My fish tacos (no salsa/chips, which were extra cost) and... More

Always a great experience at Cactus Jack's .. now called CJ's! Even if there is the very rare issue, they go above and beyond to make it right. The food and service is always worth the wait at this very busy restaurant! They are more than happy to accommodate special requests, and just about everything, if not everything, is made... More

I've been at CJs a million times, for me this place is a great choice for dinner, lunch, family & friends or date night. The food choices are original and quality, I've never had anything bad here. My favorites are the popular fish tacos and the jambalaya. The prices are reasonable and it is a great choice to take out... More

Was looking for something a little different while up in New England. Had great sea food, but just wanted something simple and good. Came across some great reviews, and CJ's was close to the hotel so gave it a try during happy hour. Great chips and dip...the salsa was awesome. Drink specials were great as well. They had live music... More
