Good ol steak house

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

This was a great place to eat steaks and BBQ. It's family style. Soup was awesome, but out steaks were under-cooked this night. We all had to send them back. But it was delicious and i'd go again.

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
