Always consistent food quality; dependable! My favorites are their swedish pancakes and diced potatoes! When in the mood for a hearty breakfast this is a top choice!

We often eat here for breakfast. The food is always high quality, the service is fast and the servers are friendly. I think that AJ's has the best orange juice in the state. Definitely a popular spot in Turlock.

Great food and a great price. We are in town several times a year and we eat there every day. Breakfast is fast fast fast. Friendly staff and excellent food. Swedish pancakes are perfection. Servers are attentive and they all share in the coffee filling, table clearing duties. You want good food at a decent price in a place that... More

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...
