“Chain restaurant with monster portions”

Claim Jumper Restaurants
Ranked #285 of 3,258 Restaurants in Phoenix
Cuisines: American
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 15, 2011

High level, Claim Jumper is a chain that has good quality control. There is a standardized format across all its locations. You will get the same thing no matter where you go. If you like Claimjumper, this will be no different.

The question is, is this the restaurant for you. If you like American meat and potatoes, then you will like CJs as it is known. The food is hearty and all the portions are large.

Pros: You will not go hungry. We don’t bother with appetizers or dessert since we won’t be able to eat it. And we will have at least two more meals from the leftovers. We can't really say we have had anything bad here, the burgers are good and we are partial to the chicken friend steak. The atmosphere is that of a rugged mining camp, it is very folksy.

Cons: Arizona's smoking laws were poorly enforced at this location. We had to walk through smokers clearly in violation of the law. And then when we left, there was a different crowd of smokers by the door. This was happening right in front of the hostess desk but they were doing nothing to stop it. Try another location, we will next time.

Tip: If you are on the road, split a entrée. You might still have leftovers. Or you can come in for just a dessert, try the chocolate chip calzone.

Summary: If you like large servings of American food, this is the place for you.
