We've eaten here several times. We've never been disappointed although we have heard many bad things. I love the Texas straws and I've had many sandwich options and have been pleased every time. I hear their shakes are great!

The service was friendly and our lunches were tasty (BLT, Fish Sandwich, Fries, and Onion Rings). We enjoy finding friendly diners when traveling, and C&J's hit the spot.

Sooo disappointing. I was feeling peckish so I ordered their top of the line Alaska Burger. The meat patties were wafer thin with NO flavor whatsoever. I may as well have eaten the wrapper! The bacon was transparent, dry buns with very little condiment, and the lettuce, tomato, and pickles were skimpy and wilty. Now, the fries - standard out... More

I was very disappointed in the food here! After reading some reviews and they state that it is good food, it really isn't. I got their Alaska Supreme Burger, which is the most expensive burger and it was SMALL!!! It tasted ok, but it wasn't special. It was 3 patties, bacon, and cheese on a hoagie style bun. You would...

On their mushroom swiss burger they used canned mushrooms and they didn't even sauté them. GROSS! Truly dissappointed all around.

A little greasy, but fast and delicious. Not the best location on S. Cushman. But yummy for sure

This is a land mark in this town, but I'm baffled by how they are still in business. I've tried this place more than once and each time I regret it.

I am very surprised to read some of the demeaning comments posted about this business. I have lived in Fairbanks since 1982 and have found that I can still today get the same quality and atmosphere I got over 20 years ago. C&J Drive In, with its 50’s era and motif is a dying breed. Though we here in Fairbanks... More

It's good food, good service. It needs to be a little updated as far at appearance, but food is good.
