Great breakfast

This place serves the best omelets. Waitresses are very attentive to making sure your coffee cup stays full. Nice quiet place. Reasonable prices. Location is so so. But if your looking for a great breakfast spot this is it!!

I had breakfast here while I was waiting for new tires to be installed on my car. Yummy food, even though, I enjoyed traditional fare. Eggs, sausage, hash browns, sour dough toast with jam and coffee. The cook nailed it. Good stuff and reasonably priced.

You get the delicious well cooked food of a exquisite restaurant hidden in a hometown family diner. You walk in expecting a basic meal and are very warmly surprised when they bring these mouthwatering and well plated dishes of food that look put together by a 5 star chef.

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
