I had the hand-cut sirloin with mashed potatoes (at my request, they added a bit of garlic to the potatoes) with gravy and a garden salad. The steak was good, but John's Steak and Seasoning Spice really awakened the flavor for me. I also used the Heinz 57 steak sauce provided. But, perhaps the best part of the meal was... More

The staff was really friendly but the food was just average. The onion rings weren't crispy and neither were the croutons in my salad. Decent diner food I guess. Might try them for breakfast but wasn't impressed with dinner or excited to go back there again.

My wife and I have eaten there since they opened, and we normally sit in the bar to avoid children. During our last visit, the bar person had a terrible cold and coughed all over everything. Needless to say, both my wife and I caught colds from this experience. Otherwise, the food is good with reasonable prices and fast service.... More

Will return for Sunday buffet. Good service. No problems at all compared to ALL the other restaurants we go to. Being drivers we can vouch for this place. Very refreshing and well priced. Thanks.

What a disappointment! The GOOD - fast seating with only 5 tables occupied; waitress was very friendly and offered to provide a substitute for meal; easy access from freeway; adequate parking; restroom OK. The BAD - ordered the Fish & Chips meal that was VERY under-cooked. Other guests with us had minor complaints. Bottom line is "never stop there again...".

Stopped here on the way North last Spring and was impressed enough to make sure we visited again on the trip South this Fall. Once again, fast service, great food and reasonable prices. We had breakfast the first time thru and lunch the second. Both exceeded expectations for a "truck stop" area restaurant.

We spent a couple of nights in Mountain Home Idaho, and AJ's restaurant was nearby. Got there too late for dinner the night we arrived (We were still on Pacific time). We went back for Sunday breakfast buffet. WOW! It was awesome. Juices, meats, fruits, pastries, you name it! The staff was very friendly and helpful with ideas for travel... More
