I was full well before I even got to the salad! The beef stew to start was tasty, beans and garlic bread. I had the pork Chops but took them home because I was stuffed. Great value, all the locals go there.

Good food and friendly service. A.J.'s has gone back to what made them top notch. Beef stew and Santa Maria style beans start your meal. Be sure and ask for their garlic bread now, don't wait till your steak comes. This place can get noisy because of the bar, but thats what makes it fun.

We have eaten here several times before and so we know what to expect. What I didn't expect was a great calamari steak to go with my 6 oz. surloin. Three pieces breaded and grilled perfect. The soup was delicious and the root beer float filled in what empty spots there might have been. At first glance the menu might... More

Unfortunately, these two "steak" houses have been around for quite some time... and haven't changed that much. They keep their signature dishes, which are good... but opening up to variety keeps me interested, and they just haven't changed enough in the last 15 years to keep me going there.

The atmosphere, servers and food are great. I found this place on a bike ride and loved the bar etc so much that I have not even tried to find a replacement.

A J Spurs is a nice restaurant and reservations should be made as they are always busy. WE go there for special occasions as they are a little pricy but worth the price. The only negative is that they charge a splitting charge. My Mom is 92 years old and cannot eat as much as she used to so it... More

A locals spot in the small town, but well worth a visit is passing through Templeton. Food is tasty.....with huge positions! Live Music some nights too, we listened to Richard Green, he was great and had a lovely chat with him afterwards about the Beatles!

I have been going to A J's for over 20 years. A J's sold about 7 years back and it went downhill fast. But I have to say it has made a huge comeback in the last year and a half. Once again I am glad to call this one of my favorite spots. They feed you from the time... More

So, its not that we had high expectations for this place and I don't like writing negative reviews, but we just would not recommend this restaurant. We tried it because my in-laws wanted to go there. The restaurant is rather dark and gloomy inside. We realize it's supposed to look like a saloon, and we're ok with that, but the... More

We were staying in Templeton for a few days and ate here the first night. When I first looked at the menu, it seemed a little pricey but once we sat down and the food kept coming, I realized it was quite a good deal overall. We were staying in a vacation home rental and had plenty of leftovers that... More
