For all the hype about this restaurant and the long lines, the food is slightly above average. Portions are large and the food is tasty but the service was terrible -- just too many patrons and not enough staff. They are used to people waiting for them and are not very organized. We waited about 15 minutes to get our... More

The waitresses that work there at 11:30 am on a wedusday seemed tried or over worked. When we first arrived at the door, a waitress told us there is a wait list, then told by the casheir, sit where there is a empty table. Our waitress was nice and the food came out fast, the Fish and Chips we ordered... More

Had a combination breakfast and lunch. We had an enjoyable meal. Food was delicious and very glad we found this cozy restaurant. When we arrived we were not greeted, however, everyone else were friendly. We choose to sit inside, however there is sitting outside and the weather was beautiful.

RJ's is open for breakfast and lunch. Very friendly staff and owner provide old time service and smiles. The food is very, very good with a broad selection of items for breakfast. The cinnamon roll is a breakfast unto itself, as my 92 year old mother in law discovered, much to her delight. The place is busy at breakfast, especially... More

Ate twice for breakfast, both times fast and happy service. Food was fresh and hot both times. Great place to dine! Would definitely recommend to people staying in nearby hotels.

RJ's has a full breakfast menu (served all day). Quality of the food is excellent, and prices are very reasonable (especially for Orange County). All in all an excellent place for breakfast.

RJ's offers a great breakfast selection. I had their delicious omelets both times I ate there. The omelets without cream cheese are better than those with cream cheese. The waitress was great about making sure my meal was gluten-free and there was no chance of cross-contamination. Plus, instead of just eliminating the bread that comes with breakfast, she offered me... More

Poaching eggs is one of the easiest ways of preparing eggs and yet RJ's over cooked them for my eggs benedict. None of that delicious creamy yolk ran out when I cut my egg and, the hollandaise sauce texture is more like a béchamel instead of a rich emulsion. Had my husband's breakfast not been good, especially the potatoes, I... More
