Outstanding BBQ and Mac and Cheese

Looking for something local instead of national chain so TA had good reviews for this. And it was spot on. Hard to believe this first of 3 locations was a gas station, but an old photo on the wall verifies the fact. But really neat renovations like painted corrugated ceiling and colorful lighted... read more

Picked up a one meat plate to go last Sunday. I was very disappointed. Most of the ribs were rib jerky, very dry and tough. The ones that were not jerky were still dry and had little flavor. The sauce was the only thing with flavor. However, the sides were very good but that should not be the main attraction... More

This is one place you can depend on getting in and out without a long wait on game weekends. If you prefer to dine in, no one makes you feel rushed to give up a table. The jalapeno cheese sausage wrap is great for a "light" meal. Don't pass up the banana pudding!

I like the original location the best. An old convenience store turned into a restaurant. So the ambiance is nothing special but I'm here to eat. Sausage with jalapeno & cheese and the pickled Cole slaw are our favs. Son liked the ribs. Sweet tea is sweet just like if I was in Georgia. I know Fargos is getting all... More

Excellent and fast BBQ. This was our first BBQ after moving to College Station. It set the bar high!

C&J's is located in an old service station turned BBQ restaurant. Very well smoked meat in which I had the sausage wrap that is as long as two slices of bread that it is wrapped in. The ranch potatoes are outstanding with bacon bits cheese and I am sure other things. Sweet tea is truly southern sweet with the crushed... More

As always, you can count on the side dishes to be good and fresh. I think their mac and cheese is better than anyone in town. Although the sliced brisket had quite a bit of fat on a couple of slices, the meat was tender and flavorful. The person who ordered the Aggie Special left very satisfied and even had... More

I've had carryout from both the Harvey Road & the South Texas Avenue locations on multiple occasions, with the same mediocre experience each time. My go-to takeout BBQ meal is a chopped BBQ beef sandwich, and to date each time I've ordered one from C&J the sandwich has included large lumps of meat. When I say large, I mean easily... More

We have been coming here to dine-in or takeout on a regular basis for many years. We are always particularly happy with their brisket and ribs as well as the sides. We also like the jalapeno sausages. Our out-of-town relatives make sure we stop here at least once during their stay! The other 2 locations we've found are not as... More

Excellent flavor and always wonderful. Great place for big groups and family outings. We have them cater a lot and we pick up large orders from them almost once a month.
