I have been here many times over the last 5 years and feel like the quality has gone down while the prices gave gone up. Good sausage and turkey, ok brisket, bad ribs and breakfast.

I got the 2 meat plate and my daughter had 3 chicken tenders plus we had two drinks.The total was $27.23. The mashed potatoes were very good and home-style as they had little pieces in them. Mac and cheese was tasty. The meat was tender but bland. Only the sauce gave it flavor. Didn't taste smoked on a pit but... More

We stopped in for lunch. Nobody had ever been here before. I was a little worried when I saw a Help Wanted on the door. That always worries me. The restaurant itself was a plain Jane. Nothing special about it. The staff seemed a little disorganized. The food I ordered was very good. I enjoyed my lunch. I ordered the... More

We've been going to J&J for years. We meet as a family usually for breakfast. Choices for everyone. We usually get breakfast tacos & they are large & tasty. Salsa is just ok. Burgers are good. Country style cooking, gravy, comfort food. I don't remember seeing a salad on the menu...although that doesn't mean there isn't.

The fried chicken is plump, juicy and delicious. The chicken breasts are large. They don't have pieces of fried chicken sitting under a heat lamp....no sir! They don't make it until you place your order so it is hot and fresh.

J&J, (JJ's) is the go to place for breakfast in Cedar Park. BBQ is decent, but they are always friendly and get food out pretty quick. Never been disappointed with the grub! They are like family here in town.

Heard good comments about this place so decided to go there for breakfast - boy, I was wondering if I'm at a wrong restaurant because the inside is very dark and eh - feel like I'm at a old bar. We ordered breakfast tacos - it was very soggy and the smell/taste was disappointed. Prices for food - I think... More

You order what you want, you get a #, they call your number. We stood in a short line and order, we had #28, next number called was 14. We ordered take out. It's a family restaurant very popular in the area.

Tried out J&J after seeing many ads on TV and were passing by on way back home. Interior is a way less than spectacular. Old and dirty. Had catfish and was not impressed. Tasted very watery and not fully cooked.

What I enjoy most here is the baked potato with chopped beef or a cheese burger and fries for lunch. For breakfast biscuits and gravy. I'm not a huge fan of bbq, so I never order it, but most everything I've tried has been very good. The decor is just...well...ugly, and old and seems dusty. And it's usually hot. I... More
