The restaurant was out of some items on the menu. They also said that the baked potatoes were not available as they were not done. The food we got was good though.

I was travelling and decided I wanted to be waited on and not fast food. I stopped in at A J's by chance. Overall, it is average and prices are also average compared to restaurants. Comparable to a Denny's, but nothing fancy. The food was average and you could have had it anywhere. There was some type of salad bar... More

Nothing to write home about. Not a great value. The food is so so and not really that great. The last two times I was there I was very disappointed with the quality of food.

In traveling about the land I try to find the locally owned and operated places and avoid the big box chain establishments like the plague. As it was when traveling before interstate highway interchanges were cluttered with corporate logo signs, there are the good and the bad among these independent establishments. AJ's Restaurant in Mountain Home, ID is among the... More

Very good meal lots of food for a good price! We were passing through on Vacation and stopped in for a meal it was between breakfast and lunch. They had the choice of both to order from. Our meal took awhile to get to us, but is was very good. Happy servers!

This place had a big salad bar. My husband had the Chicken Fried Steak. He said it was best meal he had eaten on our trip. I had the Chicken Fajitas, they were good too.Our waitress Shona Z. was very friendly, very quick to take our order. We would go there again if we were staying in Mountain Home Idaho.

Conveniently located next door to our hotel, the Mountain Home Inn, we had dinner here while passing through the area. I have to say that AJ's was a good find. The food was really good with a home-cooked touch. Our meals were served quickly and were really tasty. They also have some yummy looking homemade pies but the dinner portions... More

We had breakfast here twice with a large party of family. The food was edible and they had a variety to choose from, they cook with too much grease and don't season the food. We choose Jack in the Box rather than to go back here again.

Had a great breakfast, waffles were very fluffy, sausage patties thick and tasty and service friendly and quick. Pleasantly surprised for a stop in almost the middle of nowhere. Reasonable gas across the street also!

I've eaten at AJ's because the food is excellent. I had their special breakfast skillet, which was fantastic, especially for the price. I've had dinner there in the past and loved it too. The service is good, if not great, but the decor is tired and not really cleaned regularly. The men's room really needs to be cleaned well. The... More
