We were in town for the Tennessee/Texas A&M game, and the brisket may have been the highlight of our trip. I ordered the Aggie Special (jalapeño sausage, brisket, cheese, pickles, etc...) and was very pleased. However the star of the show was the brisket. The char of the rub.... the flavor... it's exactly what you want brisket to be. I... More

I've tried them all... There are almost as many BBQ joints in Aggieland as there are Mexican food places. Some of those place are great - usually. The Harvey Road (Hwy 30) C&J has never disappointed me. The sides are good; I really like their ribs and chicken, but I come here for the brisket! I tend to like a... More

We normally eat at Rudy's BBQ, but the people we were with wanted to go to C&J BBQ. I had the turkey, with fried okra and potatoes. It was good, but not as good as Rudy's turkey and creamed corn! I would say it's comparable to a Dickey's BBQ.

So I have had just about all their meats and I enjoyed them all. Their brisket is moist and juicy and the jalapeno cheese sausage is my personal fav. The sides are great, bbq sauce is nice and tangy and the beer is ice cold. You can solo dine or get family packs to serve up to 50 people. I... More

I had the 3 meat/2 vegetable lunch plate. Ranch potatoes were really good. Okra was pretty good. Ribs were GREAT. Beef brisket was a little dry for my taste. Pork loin was good. The employees were great fellas! Oh, the peach cobbler I'd highly recommend!

Lots of BBQ brisket in Texas. C&J's original location on Harvey Rd is the best. O - I know some over in Lockhart think they are the king of the hill, but truth is the best is here in College Station.

We found that the the ribs were not as well cooked as the CJ's original location. The brisket was poorly cut and had lots of fat. Once again not as good as CJ's original location. Great for the college crowd but not true blue BBQers!!!

Recommended by a local. Yummy Texas style bbq. Just the right amount of smokey favour. I had pork ribs and brisket. Country ranch mashed potatoes and fresh green beans. All very good!

April 30th, my husband and I went to this restaurant for lunch. He ordered the brisket and I ordered the chicken. His was done and good, as usual. My chicken was pink in several spots and the "white" meat was off white and not done. I brought this to the employees' attention and they called for the "manager." He came... More
