Great steakhouse.

They start you with a great vegtable beef soup that you mix with their homemade beans and salsa, just be careful not to eat too much. After the soup you get a nice salad with your choice of dressing. I had the blue cheese and my wife the avocado ranch. Both were wonderful. Then they bring the... read more

This is the second A J Spurs I have visited and like the first this place it has great food! Smaller than Grover Beach but all the same charm. Very country with country music playing. Very good food at a very fare price. No happy hour.

We were in the Paso Robles area and decided to swing by and have dinner at the A.J. Spurs in nearby Templeton - the original restaurant location of the small chain - upon receiving a strong recommendation from a co-worker. The soup that they brought at the start of the meal was absolutely amazing! It literally was the best soup... More

This is a favorite place to go, you wont leave hungry and the menu has lots of choices, plus the bar has live music sometimes.

This was our first visit to the restaurant. We arrived around 8:30 on a Saturday night and there was no wait for a table. The service was friendly, but found out it was our servers first night on the job, so not everything went as smoothly as it could have. Huge portions, good quality steak cooked to order. The rib...

If you like spicy try the Cajun Eye. So good and there is so much food you really need to pace yourself. Tip: when they bring the soup, beans, and salsa, mix it all together. Its delicious that way! Order a Tan Ferrari for desert. MMMM.

after getting snubbed at McPhee's, we came back to A J Spurs ... (both had been recommended by locals) At first glance, the prices seem a little bit high, but don't forget that your complimentary starter is almost a meal in itself ! The soup, beans and salsa were nice and hot (good on a rainy night) - tasty and... More

Great food - tons of it! The dinners are well worth the money. There were 5 couples in our party on Sunday and most of us ended up sharing dinners as there was soo much food. The soup was fantastic, same with the beans. The only negative was the service was slower than in our other visits. Perhaps, they were... More

Cowboy style dining.. Absolutely delicious. Super nice servers.. Excellent food.. Great atmosphere. I have eaten here on numerous occasions.. I live in Morro Bay and when friends come over this is one of our take them to places.. Everyone we have ever taken here, cannot wait to come back.
