Great find!

Tired of chain restaurants. Found TJ's and decided to try. Glad we did. Good food. Large portions. Low prices and very nice staff. Very clean. Great way to start the day.

TJ'S is a local favorite in Avondale for breakfast and lunch. The breakfast burrito is tasty. Service is quick and very friendly.

The breakfast menu is extensive and is made fresh to order. The portions are huge. I am not sure how TJ does it but they have the lightest, fluffiest biscuits you will ever try. They are so light it is easier to eat them with a fork instead of in your hands. Service is fantastic and if you want a... More

A long time favorite of the locals. Great food. I go to TJ's for their breakfast. Try eating one of their cinnamon buns. Always a busy place but they can always seat you. Servers are very friendly and quick. You order is served in a timely manner. Your coffee cup is always full with hot coffee.

We always enjoy our meal at TJ's. We usually have breakfast when we go and there is always a generous portion. The food is tasty and service is great. We have had lunch there too and there is plenty to choose from. We have never been disappointed in our meal.

Great servers, right on it. My order was exactly what I ordered and no need to send back. The coffee is a good brand and food was a good portion. Had the choice of hash browns or house potatoes, choose the house, what I got was fried ok and very plain had no flavor, maybe I was expecting onions and... More

I can't believe it took us so long to find this wonderful restaurant. The cinnamon rolls are out of this world...a huge cinnamon roll swimming in butter and frosting! We shared it for my husband's birthday. The hash browns, omelette, sausage and toast were all delicious. We have a new favorite breakfast spot!

My personal preference when dining out is to search out privately owned, non-chain restaurants. I was a former Goodyear resident for many years and ate at TJ's multiple times. When family and friends came to town, this was on the top of our list of places to eat. Although I have been gone for many years, I was thrilled to... More

We stopped in here for dinner because of fairly good reviews on Tripadvisor. My dinner was great, liver and onions. My husbands dinner was not so great, fried chicken. His chicken was overdone and hard. We would probably give them a try one more time. They have great looking home made pies. They are closed on Thursday nights!
