When I am in Billings, my first choice for Lunch is CJ's. I love the atmosphere, and the food is great. I especially enjoy the salads.

I'm not sure if I've been here before, but if I have it was nearly ten years ago. I've been missing out! This is not anything fancy, but it's very well prepared comfort food. Exactly what you'd expect in a rib/steak restaurant. I had called the day prior to our visit, as we were expecting around 18 people. The individual... More

We were a big party when we went there. We showed up earlier, but we did call. The waitress did not seem too happy we were there 20 minutes earlier... But that aside. I felt like we were rushed into ordering, eating and leaving. I ordered the linguini with clams which i believe was under the Seafood entrees category. At... More

This is our "go to" restaurant for a lighter meal. The atmosphere is good, food choices are adequate, prices are reasonable, and they have the best barbecue sauce to dip their delicious home made chips in! My husband usually gets the burger, and I usually get the shrimp tacos. The salad/soup bar is great, but I have found that it... More

Always have a good meal here. I wouldn't say it's the best in town but it is very good. I always seem to gravitate to the combo meat dinner. All the meat choices are good.

Attractive bar and restaurants that locals love. Known for great ribs, chicken, steaks and delicious salads, as wells as burgers and great sandwiches. They serve complimentary lavosh and cream cheese spread and full bar is always busy.

A plate full, no matter what you order. And finally a burger cooked to order without the 'critical' stare for rare. The $10 mesquite (??) burger with jalapeno, cheese, mushrooms and bacon--all the fixin's is huge and came with 1/2 plate of fries, well worth the price .. I had sweet potato fries, shared with others and we still didn't... More

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.
