Steakhouse
$$
“Skinny J's looks like a regular bar and grill restaurant...and I guess they are, except that their food is great! They have a few cajun options on the menu (crawfish dip appetizer is one of my faves), a wonderful black and blue steak and blue cheese salad, big juicy burgers....everything I have tried here is just great. This is a family friendly place for lunch and dinner. I believe on some evenings they have bands scheduled. ”

“This has been one of my favorite consistent places for great BBQ ribs for over 10 years. There has been a change in ownership and not sure if that has had any effect on consistency. My last few visits there have been hit or miss but still love it. ”
