I always get the Swedish pancakes. So great! I go every Sunday with my dad since 2005. So consistent and the staff is great. I definitely wouldn't change any thing. I might make it bigger but even with its size when it is packed, you won't wait more than 10 minutes to be seated! They take only a minute to... More

AJ's is no fancy restaurant - at all. BUT, it is a great old-fashioned NON-CHAIN American eatery. The food is plentiful, the service excellent, and worth every penny. The "Almost Famous" fries are getting closer to being famous. The mushroom and cheese burger is overflowing with fresh mushrooms. We drive an hour to have breakfast at AJ's, and it's always... More

Food and wait staff, both are great. But AJ's had the best biscuits and gravy and I do judge my breakfasts with that in mind. Nicely's in Lee Vining and the Bridgeport Inn are second and third compared to AJ's. And lucky me, I live in Turlock! Service is quick, coffee keeps coming, place is hopping. Expect a wait at...

The place is crowed, so show up expecting a 5-10 minute wait for breakfast. The food is well worth the money. I had the "Portuguese" something, and it was awesome. Orange Juice is awesome! Our waiter forgot out biscuits and gravy, but with the orange juice being so awesome, I didn't complain. Overall, I think everyone should try AJ's!

This locally owned restaurant offers a great dining experience. The working owner always makes time to greet the customers. We typically visit for breakfast. Orange juice is fresh squeezed and delicious. Wait staff makes customers feel special. Check out the daily specials, written on the white board just inside the door.
