My family and I enjoy ordering takeout here about once a week. The food is great and the prices are reasonable. We all have our favorite dishes and have had the pizza, wraps, and subs which are all delicious. But my personal fav is the stuffed mushrooms! If you are in the area this is a great place to eat...

We live locally and enjoy TJ's weekly. It is consistently good, the prices are reasonable, the portions are generous and the owner/family is super friendly and funny. Great pizza, salads, entrees, etc.

We live locally and are always in search of an easy night out with good food at reasonable prices. Lately that has been TJ's. Excellent service, owner chef willing to bend the menu to our daughter's tastes and generous portions. Great pizza, calamari and entries. We'll be back.

Good choice of the basics: apps, salads, sandwiches. The dinner plates and specials are a very good value, served with salad and homemade rolls with fabulous garlic oil for dipping. Our favs are the chicken pita-their take on a souvlaki , and the steak topped salad, an excellent small steak cooked to order on fresh greens with good dressing. The... More

Wow, a great place, family owned by a family that can cook. Large portions that the locals love. I had the calzone one day and then the greek salad the next. Both were outstanding. You have to try this place.

Nice place to take entire family for a good meal. Atmosphere has improved since KFC's aura is slowly disappearing . Great staff with super friendly attitude . The food is very good and portions are reasonable for your money...5.00 share a plate charge although I've never been charged is a turn off.

This is a really fun place to go for good food reasonably priced. I can't talk to pizza's, grinders or others but for main courses only. By far the best is the chicken Parmesan. Incredibly tender and enough for two. I will address that comment later. They also price their house wine at a very reasonable $4/glass. The meal includes... More

My wife forced me to eat there again tonight only because we had a gift certificate and Luigis was closed. We get in, and sit down to a very wet table and seats. These waitress's are hosing down everything with Straight Simple Green Spray!!! The fumes are really bad and that stuff can stain or remove color from clothes. This... More
