CJ's burger sucks.
I realized that CJ's is a breakfast joint, but I had breakfast already and just couldn't do eggs again for lunch. I noticed that they served fresh squeeze juice, so I was really hopeful that the food would be fresh and tasty since they are highly praised. Boy was I disappointed when my sad cheeseburger w/ fries came.
It was hate at first sight. The meat is like the frozen burgers that come in a bulk of 10 at the grocery store, and it tasted like those meat that have been sitting in the freezer too long. I'm not a big fan of fries cut like CJ's, but they were ok.
Service was meh. I had to ask for mustard 3 times, and it took awhile for me to get my check. Oh, I noticed a waitress adjusting the pancakes on a plate with her hands. I don't care if she just washed her hand, she should wear gloves or use a utensil.
If you're dining with a friend, I suggest you sit outside because it gets really LOUD inside.
The breakfast food looks like standard diner food -nothing to get all excited unless you want grit, catfish -soul or Mexican breakfast food. If I want breakfast in that area, I'll go to Bloom Café.
