Tried CJ's for the first time today. I had the meatball grinder. The meatballs had a good flavor but were a little dry. I would try their pizza someday.

They make some great pizzas there , Some of grinders are okay , but not a fan of their tuna. They put some type of relish in it and it is YUCK! But over all good place to eat

Love their grinders. It is always crowded so if you are taking it to go I would call ahead. They have limited parking and seating. The folks there are very friendly. The pizza is also very good and prices are reasonable.

Pizza, grinder or salad you can't go wrong! Almost always packed for placing orders or picking up deliveries. Always great food. Grinder rolls are so fresh.

Moved pretty far away from CJ's and hadn't been there for lunch in ages. Happened to be in Manchester so stopped in with a few friends and had a Tuna grinder. I was pleasantly surprised that CJ's still makes the best Tuna grinder known to man. The place isn't fancy but it's clean and family run. Service is excellent and... More
