CJs is an awesome spot for lunch or dinner. They have all types of barbecue -- smoked sausage, beef brisket, baby back ribs, etc. -- and a solid soup/salad bar. Service is always fast and they do take out too ! Never had a bad meal here. Highly recommended!

It's Texas BBQ but when in Montana this place is the next best thing. My In-Laws have been going here for years and it is a great "go-to" place when you want something tried and true. They take us here whenever we visit, and we have come to look forward to it every time.

They have a nice salad bar with great soup but my favorite is take out - ribs and be sure to get their potato skins.

We stopped here when our car was in the repair shop, and were pleasantly surprised. CJs has an interesting menu with high quality choices at reasonable prices. Not just your normal burger joint, they've got a big variety of sandwiches and entrees. The service was friendly and competent.

We are leaving for vacation tomorrow so instead of cooking my wife, grandson and I went out for a quick dinner. I wanted someplace casual but where I could get a decent Martini. I was not disappointed with the martini. My wife had the smoked chicken which was good if maybe a little under done. My grandson had the app... More

This Rib House is one of the oldest in Billings and the lunch favorite of the lunch bunch for at least a mile in (sp). The variety of sandwiches is more than satisfactory for the "Out to Lunch Bunch" or any visitor from out of town/state on a shopping spree and any new person on vacation.

We looked online for a salad bar. CJ's listed an all you can eat salad bar for $9. Sounded good. The menu price in the restaurant was $11. Oops on them and us. The salad bar was better than average, but just barely. The soup selection was okay at best. Only two to choose from.

Love the burger, homemade chips and white cake at this casual sports bar. The pork nachos are pretty tasty too!

They are famous for their ribs and should be! Great food and drink menus. Their desserts are amazing, made from a local baker!!

I love a great burger and CJ's delivers every time! I was meeting a friend and because we wanted a 'quiet' seat, we were offered a booth in the casino/Side Lines. I had never been over there before and anticipated it would be noisy. I was pleasantly surprised when it was absolutely quiet. The service was great and of course,... More
