We were a party of six, dropped by for a late lunch. The place is a favorite with many locals. It has a reputation for fast service, good food, large servings and very reasonable prices. I have eaten here many times before and never had cause to complain. I ordered a western omelet, and it was delicious. However, two of... More

Don't let the humble exterior fool you! This is a great place for a family breakfast. The food is tasty with great variety and large portions. the pancakes were light and fluffy. The service was friendly and efficient. Be prepared to wait because of the popularity of the restaurant. We would definitely go again when we are in the area.

What a great find - thanks to the concierge in my hotel (George). Proper home cooked food and friendly service. Massive portions as usual so only have the short stack if you're having the pancakes. Enjoy!

Great little restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Great friendly staff and cooks!!!! We had breakfast here this morning and I must say, TJ's beats all the other locals hands down, food and service was outstanding, very clean and homey inside, booths and tables were impeccable. Pricing is also outstanding and very reasonable. I personally highly recommend you visit TJ's... More

Our "go-to" place for breakfast. We're always satisfied with the food and service. It can get a little noisy at times--small place and always plenty of happy customers.

My family go often, and are never disappointed. It's smaller than average, but the food is fantastic! Breakfast is the best.. Fresh food, great gravy and many home style choices. The place isn't in the best neighborhood but you'd never guess once inside. It's a diner, and has tons of charm. It's a workin' man, local diner kind of place.... More

Really good place for breakfast. The pancakes here were probably the best I have had in the United States. The location and appearance of the place are a little interesting, but just march straight in. You will get some authentic home style breakfast. Definitely recommended! Hilarious service with old ladies wondering around as waitresses. Service was quick, no issues with... More

I used to frequent TJ's a couple times a week when I lived in Phoenix years ago. So I was excited to visit again when I was stopping through the city. It did not let down, if anything it was better. Just a simple, home style diner. The service is always friendly and the breakfasts are tasty and large. Can't... More
