They've been in business forever and the reason is simple: great food at reasonable prices! When they say "giant grinder," they mean it - and it's delicious. My favorites are ham & cheese and chicken parm. Their pizza is also great - sauce not too sweet, generous cheese and toppings. And, their's are the only wings I'll eat - "mild" is spicy enough for me, and not mushy at all. To sum it up, other places are closer or deliver, but we'd rather drive a few miles to get great food at CJ's.
I dont usually dine at chain Italian restaurants (no, I'm not Italian, just a preference). My mother and a few friends were raving about this place. I tried it out last month. It was very good. Nice waitstaff, good recommendations, food was fantastic. A little dark for atmosphere, but nice for a romantic night out. A must try.
This restaurant is beautiful and I feel like I'm in Paris, almost identical. The food is amazing and the prices are good for the quality of the food, also the desserts are fabulous! If you want to have a spectacular once in a life time experience go down to the French room.
