Hamburger Heaven in Mammoth Lakes, CA

My husband and I recently had dinner at CJ's Grille in Mammoth Lakes. We own a condo in Mammoth and are always eager to try new restaurants. We were very impressed with CJ's. The hamburgers were somewhat pricy at about $15.00 average, but they were very large and absolutely delicious. They came... read more

Went here on the first day of reopening after the 'winter break' and had the Fish & Chips. Really, the simple description does not do the place justice. The fish was perfectly battered, the Coleslaw side was amazingly good (we took some away with us) and chefs should be sent here to learn how chips should be cooked - fantastic.... More

Restaurant has been in business a few years now and has blossomed into one of the best in town. Nicely varied menu.

CJ's Grill is a delightful family owned & operated restaurant in Mammoth Lakes easily located on Old Mammoth Road with lots of parking. They added an outside area this last year where when the weather is beautiful is a perfect spot for a glass of wine and a hamburger without description. They have an $8.00 lunch special Tuesday-Friday. Try a... More

Family owned. Jason the chef has some really great ideas and delivers. Last year he won 'Best Burger' in Mammoth and for good reasons. But they are far from a 'burger joint.' I've seen wild game, pastas, sea food, salads and more. Go here. You'll come out thinking: A) I'm going there again! and B) Why the heck didn't I... More

My husband and I went for dinner. He had a steak, baked potato with some horseradish. He enjoyed it. I had their black bean burger without a bun or mayo so it was vegan. They had a couple other vegan options also. They make everything to order, so some of the items on the menu can be altered to fit... More

Arrived by chance having wandered up the road wanting a good evening meal, left saying we will be back. The service was perfect, Carrie was very helpful and the food perfectly cooked. The fire gave the room a cosy friendly feel.

I had the half sandwich combo with the daily soup. Which was the grilled cheese and tomato bisque soup. And a side of the homemade macaroni& cheese. It was all very, very delicious. I love the fact that everything is made from scratch! Carrie was very friendly and an attentive waitress. Her husband, who's one of the chefs is very... More
