This place has the usual cuts of meat. The Brisket was very good as was the pulled pork, smoked turkey was a hit but the sliced beef was a bit off. Okra, potato and garlic bread were good. Could have been a bit hotter. Service was great even though they looked like they were understaffed for the amount of business... More

Since they moved Cross the street to a new location they have yet to find their footing. The food seems to still be OK but the kitchen has major issues. I ordered a smoked half chicken today just like I have ordered since 1996. I was served two legs and thighs not really a half chicken. I asked the server... More

Excited about tryin the restaurant in its new location. They have been open there for almost 3 weeks. At first all was good. Fried Pickles pretty greasy, but good. I order the mini combo (three meats). We thought the food was coming after a reasonable time, but Sara said they were out of sausage. She was very apologetic. Not a... More

My husband and I were traveling from NJ and saw a full parking lot which is "usually" a sign of a great local restaurant with great food. There was so much wrong with my visit that I decided to list the issues rather than write a dissertation. 20 minute wait with a dinning room full of empty tables. Clueless staff.... More

Yay for good BBQ. Wish they had vinegar sauce, but super grateful their pulled pork is flavorful, not chopped, and not sauced. If you like sauce, there's plenty to add. Their greens, Cole slaw, and hush puppies are good as well. Better BBQ than Memaws which is a few doors down.

We stopped in on their first day in the new location. We had not visited their previous location, so could not compare. We liked the sports bar look of the place, but parking is a bit limited. We ordered the pull pork and it was fine, nothing to complain about, but nothing great. Service and atmosphere were good. Friendly staff.

Food finally ordered, but most of what we ordered they were out of for the day :( Took over 45 minutes to get our actual dinner..no refills on drinks... BBQ was cold and was not pulled chicken (as ordered) sides are 1... More

This place has now moved from its original location listed above (445 East Eau Gallie) to across the street (490 East Eau Gallie). It is a larger and nicer facility. Plenty of staff. Our waitress was very nice, friendly and efficient. The menu was new. I have included a picture of one side of it below. I tried the Wagyu... More

I must first say that the "new" C&J is only a few days old, I have to give them a slide for that. I am comparing them to last year, in their old establishment. The new place is very nice, they added a full bar with a good selection of beer, on tap and bottle, They have TV's everywhere, it's... More
