The burger what great. Having different “ounce” choices to choose from is very helpful. 5oz. 10oz. Or Ginormous oz. I like how they have so many different ways to customize your mood for a burger. The waffle fries were great. Food was hot coming out....More

A fancy place...it is not!! If you want to hang out and grab a burger and drink...it is the place. The hostess doesn't seat you, very casual. The food is comfort food and they do that very well. We enjoy stopping in once in awhile...More

Great burger. Comes with chips, have to pay extra for fries. Place smells like an ashtray. Hilariously slow service.

Had a Groupon to another place that ended up being closed for repairs. Thankfully CJ's was close by and did not disappoint. The burgers were juicy and full of flavor. Service was great! Atmosphere is just your typical dark bar, but don't let that keep...More

Although we have not seen children in the restaurant the times we have been there; I see no reason why they would not be allowed.
