Food was very good, service was good also. The only thing I noticed was the restaurant needed some minor updating and cleaning, I would call this place a diamond in the rough! Chicken fried chicken dinner was excellent and they do a good job with their salad bar also.

AJ's is a true "find" for the traveler passing through. The food is very good and the service is attentive. The crisp cold salad bar, in particular, with homemade dressings and all the fixin's (plus hot soup) offers a very tasty and filling meal. But wait till you see the pastrami sandwish served at the corner table. It's gigantic. It... More

Went camping this weekend and it was rain gin so we decided to skip breakfast at the camp site and pack up early. On the way Home we stopped at AJ's for brunch. Lets just say the food was disappointing and the wait staff could not count, add or subtract. Disappointing.

After an 8 hour day of driving, I needed a break. Food here was good, service outstanding and the value for the money was excellent. Rarely do I find a place that makes good on the promises they put on their website - this place did! I was most impressed with the service! I've been to many "top-rated" restaurants that... More

The service from all staff was absolutely horrific, the food was very plain tasting, small portions and some was burnt or under cooked. We tried the place several times but will never go back.

Stopped to meet some family as we passed through on a road trip. Service was good & the waitress was personable. Food was fast, hot & tasty. Would stop by again if in the area.
