CJ's won the local Best Burger contest last week, and the award was well-deserved. The menu isn't too long, but the choices hit just about anything you'd like. Salads, sandwiches, burgers, and home-made desserts. Casual and friendly atmosphere. This couple really cares about their guests. AND it's one of the few spots west of the Mississippi to get some Cincinnati... More

I think my daughter and I are going to make CJ's a yearly tradition. We ate here last year and knew we would again this year when we came up for a family vacation. Love the atmosphere. The food is great. Love the owner. She really makes you feel special. Can't wait until we come up again next year!

No other comments needed in my opinion. Great atmosphere, great staff and most important, great gastronomic experience. A very nice surprise in our journey to Yosemite Park. Highly recommended.

Wow! Every part of our meal here was unbelievably perfect. The service was excellent, the food was amazing, and the chef came out to great us and share the nights specials. Don't miss this special treat if you stay in Mammoth Lake or are even just passing through. You won't be sorry!

From the outside it appears as though some building work is going on - so hopefully temporary as I may have just driven elsewhere had I not read some reviews beforehand. However, once inside it's a pleasant little restaurant. Service was top notch, even saw Jason (owner and chef) appear a couple of times to pick up the slack when... More

We had a nice family meal at CJs. Juan, the waiter, made us feel very welcome. The yellow fin tuna appetiser is worth a try as was the home made ice cream. Not bad.

We popped in this restaurant as we saw that it looked busy and thought, why not! We were met by a fella called Doug who was really helpful and welcoming. He showed us to a table and gave a 5 star service throughout. The food itself was really good, I ordered a Buffalo Burger (which was really good) and I... More

Service was great and friendly. Food was ok and pricey. Kids eat free Monday. Chicken dishes were very basic ad I would not order again.

My spouse and I were shopping in the village and asked some locals where to have lunch. All agreed that CJ's was a hidden gem for a reasonable price. We both had soup and sandwiches for under $10 each. We were impressed with the service, atmosphere, and food. Better than we expected. It is on our go to next time... More

We went because it was close by and had decent reviews. My Caesar salad was wilted, not crisp, lasagna suboptimal. But the bread was OK, and service friendly. Decent wine list.
