Easy parking in strip mall in Novato. Blue cheese burger, med rare. Juicy and well cooked. Would ask/pay for extra cheese next time.

Travelling to Santa Rosa we ended up here due to reviews from another review site, four + stars, so we thought it must be worth a shot. From the outside I thought what the heck, it is sited on a fairly run down mall, inside is OK. Food was good, served in plastic trays but the stand out thing was... More

Best burger I have ever had! The classic is not so big that you have stuff running down your face but enough to fill you up. Owners are super nice. Garlic fries are yummy. Going back next time for ribs. Highly recommend.

This a very good restaurant for carnivores. The food is made with fresh healthy ingredients. The pricing is in line with the quality of the items on the menu. It is almost a cheap eats destination. A nice functional family runs this joint and they are as friendly and helpful as possible. If you are hungry, this a good place... More

Lately their burgers have been underwhelming, so we do nto go there any longer. When it comes to burgers, average just is not good enough for us. Not when there are so many great burger offerings in this town.

We were visiting family in Novato and took my wife's 9 year old cousin to JJ's. He loved his burger on the pretzel roll. My swiss burger was delicious. The staff are friendly and attentive to detail. Highly recommended if you're looking for good food done well!

Family owned restaurant not a chain. Excellent quality food. The staff is friendly and attentive. Very accomodating to your requests. Had a milkshake last night it was delicious. Only sad thing is closed on Sunday but great that they care enough about the family and employees to give them a day off. Very clean and you can watch them cook.... More

On the way home from hiking at Pt. Reyes we stopped here for a late lunch...the cowboy burger was juicy and savory. Tater tots on the side were the BEST! The chicken chipotle sandwich with kettle chips was delicious, too. Sweet potato fries were ok - tater tots were better. Super clean and friendly staff.

Being a vegetarian, I really appreciate JJ's veggie burger. It has some black beans, and a lot of flavor. My mom had the big blue which is a large piece of hamburger with, as you can guess, blue cheese. She loved it! JJ's has the best sweet potato fries, and their milk shakes are super rich. The place I has... More
