Went for lunch with people from work, and all agreed that you will not find a better roast beef sandwich. Great bun, huge choice of toppings, fantastic beef. Fries were great as well. People working there were friendly and helpful. Cannot wait to go back.

The food here is fine. The reason that we will not go back to this restaurant is that it has an open kitchen, and every time we have been there, we have heard one of the cooks (?the owner?) being rude to the waitresses and treating them poorly. We don't want to give our money to an establishment that treats... More

Been going here occasionally for breakfast for over a year now. A fairly small place with quite a few regulars at breakfast. Good inexpensive food, but I have had one constant complaint. They just can't seem to get their homefries right. Every single time they are totally black and charred. Good if you like the taste of carbon, but otherwise... More

My wife and I go here all the time. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner. No matter when we go, the food is always good, prompt, and reasonably priced. I really can't complain about a thing except for perhaps seating can be hit or miss if you're going on the weekend for breakfast, its always packed!

I "discovered" this place purely by accident. I had an appointment near by and when I drove by I thought I would stop to bring a soda with me to my meeting. I walked in and the aroma was overwhelming. It smelled like my kitchen on Thanksgiving Day. Sure enough I saw a "Turkey Special" on the blackboard menu. I've... More

Great roast beef, BLT, and pastrami sandwhiches. Another member of our party had the fried haddock plate ... it was huge and tasted very fresh. The service was extremely friendly and its the type of informal place where I could hang on a hot summer's night. They have ice cream as well.

A small restaurant with baseball decor. Counter and table service. Breakfast is very good, and also cheaper than most places. Shannon is a terrific waitress!

The food was on the greasy side. Kids in kitchen more interested in talking to each other than waiting on customers

I just got back from CJ's for breakfast and it was really good! I had an omelet w/ ham, onions, and a side of homefries w/ OJ and a coffee and it was $13!! Not bad at all! The quality was better than average and the service was impeccable! I had been here in the past and was not blown... More

I know, I know, it's NOT on Rt. 9 *gasp*! But it's worth the 5 minute drive to get away from the chains. The food is better than Riley's at Jordan's. Chris is a local guy who does a bang-up job making great sandwiches; all fresh and cooked there. Call him before you leave work and he'll make you pot... More
