It was one of the highlights of my trip! the food was delicious and fast, our server/bartender Justin was one of the nicest people I've ever met. he was smart,... More

Off of I-94, near several hotels, in a strip mall adjacent to gas station. Our server (Ashlan) saw us walking away because we couldn't get the front door open! She came outside and assured us, yes they were open (the door was stuck because of the humidity!) We ordered the walleye finger appetizers (out of this world) and shared a... More

We stopped here for supper when we wanted something close to the highway. We were pleasantly surprised! I ordered a chicken wrap, which was pretty good. My parents enjoyed their sandwiches and the French fries were really good and crispy! The kids ordered their kids meals that came with warm cream puffs! Needless to say, they really enjoyed them and... More

Located in strip shopping center behind a truck stop (very close to Hampton Inn) is this hidden gem. Went there the first time a couple of years ago out of it's convenience to the Hampton Inn. I was impressed with the quality of the food, service, and seating. I have eaten at RJ's several times since that first visit and... More

The services was quite exceptional. Very friendly staff, even while training in new staff. Went out of their way to let me know that they were sorry that things were taking too long, the place was packed and it was understandable that it was taking some time for stuff to get out of the kitchen. Food was amazing. It was... More

I've always heard good things about this place and finally had the chance to stop and eat. The restaurant is very clean and nice atmosphere inside with dim lighting. The customer service was great and food was good. I ate the boneless wings. I will def be back to try the Cajun chicken pasta. I highly recommend this place especially... More

Great location for the Profesional Driver - immediately adjacent to a major chain fuel off I-94, west of MSP, near St Cloud, MN. Imaginative and eclective menu , great service and ambiance make RJ'S a very pleasant change from the "norm" and I'm sure many OTR professionals - especially those who team, will appreciate the opportunity to "normalize".

Really delicious food, fast friendly service. Be sure to try the walleye BLT with sweet potato fries. We never would have thought to stop here without Trip Advisor. It looks like a truck stop but is very nice inside. Our waitress was very welcoming and upbeat. I would eat here a lot if I lived in the area!

I have often been tempted to stop at RJ's and tonight I finally did it. I wish I had stopped in sooner! I had an excellent burger while my coworker enjoyed a salad that (if you prefer salad) looked fantastic. Even better than the food was the service. Everyone seemed to truly enjoy working there. That alone makes RJ's worth... More
