About Us

For 30 years CJ’s has sat in historic downtown Columbia at the corner of 7th & Broadway in a building nearly 120 years old.  We use only quality ingredients, prepared with care and integrity.  Our famous wings have never seen the inside of a freezer or underside of a heat lamp; they’re served fresh and hot, straight out of the fryer to your table.  CJ’s excellent tasting wing sauces are our own secret recipes prepared right here in our kitchen on a daily basis.  Owned by 3rd generation Columbia residents CJ’s has deep ties to the University of Missouri, especially Mizzou athletics. The owner’s grandfather was a Mizzou Hall of Fame quarterback under legendary coach Don Faurot, and is considered the original master of Faurot’s famous Split- T formation.  From black & gold walls, to Mizzou memorabilia, to our 200 inch big screen, CJ’s is the place to catch all the Tiger games.  Come in today and learn why CJ’s isn’t just a restaurant – it’s a Tiger Country tradition!
