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

The food is fresh and amazing!! I grew up in Florida, so I do know Cuban sandwiches. This is hands down the best Cuban I've ever had this side of Miami. The owners make you feel like family!! Stop in and grab a Cuban.

The staff at our hotel gave us 3 options & we are happy that we picked CJ's. The menu had a lot to offer, the waiter was very helpful with recommendations (also about the beer).

Nice ambiance and nice food. The specials are always good. The soups and salads are great. Went twice in our 5 day ski trip in Mammoth.
