Chile was great! I had a combo plate with red but sampled some green off moms huevos rancheros, both were great. The relleno was just a 6 on a scale of 1-10. But the sopapillas were like the ones you used to get 30 years ago, you know light and fluffy, but crispy golden outside. They weren't those rubber hose things like at stuffys, or those five pounders that jiffy lube might make. The food was really authentic and not all full of flour and spices from India. Next to home some of the best I've had in very long time.

Food is decent, but the attitude of the whole place is sour. Every time I go there, the cashier is a snot. The servers try but whne you have snotty people when you arrive and when you leave, it makes for an unplesant dining experience. I don't go there anymore.

I've never been disappointed with the food at TJ's. everything is always awesome, and the serve the best Spanish rice I've ever eaten. Also, on Friday nights, they provide great live music!
Definitely a great experience you won't forget!
