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

The salad bar was far from ok, and they had no explanation as to what or how it was included with the meals.

Judging from full parking lot this is probably best family restaurant in town. We ordered fish & chips and fajita. My fish was not freshly fried and breading was soggy. When I ordered my meal, I asked for additional sauce but it was forgotten so I asked again when meal was delivered. Still nothing so I went to the kitchen... More

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
