It's Texas roadhouse grub and some of it is great. I ordered the cheese enchiladas because that's always my first test for Tex-Mex food. Bar J's almost brought tears to my eyes. The enchilada was filled with cheese, onions and green onions, with plenty of...More

Had a great lunch this weekend. The menu and found are exactly the same as the original BarJ in Lorton. Our server Clint couldn't have been nicer. A must go place!
