Good food, nice ambiance, nice decor

I have been going to AJ Spurs for many years. If you are hungry this is the place to go. It is very much the western dining experience that you are going for.

Lots of food, great atmosphere if you like dark western. Meat quality poor. Good service. We decided not to go back, too many better choices near by.

We ran upon this place via GPS. This would be a good place for anyone including families with children. Wide selection to choose from (I had calamari steaks and husband had ribs).Go hungry as they start you off with a hearty soup, salad and plenty of food on your plate. A rootbeer float or liquer goes with the meal if... More

Super duper fun! Great family place if your family Is hungry! It was like a buffet I didn't have to stand up for. Price included everything but drinks so it seems well priced, especially the huge kids meals

And when I say soup, I mean the included tureen of one of the great culinary surprises that I have had recently. An outstanding fresh vegetable stock flavored with stew meat and garnished to your taste with black frijoles and salsa. Everyone, including my non-soup loving partner loved it. I had a thick and tender pork chop while she enjoyed... More

First, I have lived in the Templeton area many years and have eaten at Spurs countless times. I I eat dinner at this restaurant 2 or 3 times a year, mainly for special occasions. The pricing for steaks is between $20 to $40.00 depending on size and cut which is consistent with other steak houses in the area. I last... More

Nothing fancy here, and not a trendy spot. If you're looking for good food at a reasonable price....this is it. We brought in our own wine, and corkage was only $10. Steaks were great....salad, soups, and sides were as well. There were three separate areas here....card room (one full table of players), bar, and restaurant.

What we love about AJ Spurs is the dinner meal. Comes with vaquero soup, beans, garlic bread, salad, potatoes and then your entree and dessert is either a rootbeer float or adult after dinner drink. It is a lot of food, but there is your breakfast the next day, you can always order a la carte. Solid steaks!

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 main course. I... 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.
