CJs BBQ is worth the wait! Love their famous rack of beef ribs, not too wet, just right! Great flavor, tender with lots of meat. Sides have quite a bit to choose from, don't forget the cornbread!

Tucked away in a small shopping center, this inconspicuous little gem is a must dine for great BBQ. Don't over dress by wearing your Sunday's best or you'll make everyone uncomfortable and end up redecorating your duds with BBQ polka-dots! This is a very casual...More
