Go here, and do it now! The Claim Jumper chain has always impressed with good food and big portions, but many have lost their salad bar recently. as far as I know, this location still has it and boy is it good! also if there are no minors in your party, walk right into the bar area with big TVs to skip the lines! and enjoy shopping on the side. I have had many meals at the CJ location and others, and all sandwiches, burgers and salads I have tried have satisfied. I am a big eater, but even I had to acquiesce and take some home too fully enjoy the meal! finally, treat yourself to a big chocolate cake afterward your main meal
Matador has a wonderful menu, you just can't deny it. The food is prepared perfectly and the waitstaff is on the ball. The decor is breathtaking. The booths let you feel like it's just you and your party. My only complaint is the layout of the bar. It almost seems as if the bar is an afterthought. It's not designed for the social butterfly. Once you find your seat, it's near impossible to talk with anyone other than the people sitting on either side of you. The drinks and the bar specials are amazing!
I hate when a restaurants are inconsistant...which means I love Claim Jumpers. Always great food, good service and comforatable atmosphere. It's usually just two of us going so we like to find instant seating in the bar. Last time we were there, however, it was cold and they had the fireplace off because it was over heating the TV mounted above it. I say move or get rid of the TV as there are plenty of others that cover all the angles and warm things up.
