Great Local Place

AJ's is a New Lenox tradition. The food is great and the service is usually fast and friendly. I prefer AJ's italian beef to Portillo's any day. They do charge for refills which is a little off putting but its a low cost.

They know how to make Gyros the right way - if there are 2 of you, go for the Gyros Platter - even 2 people can't finish it!

After moving from Chicago, I craved all the local food items you cannot find where I currently live i.e. Chicago style thin and deep dish pizza, Polish and Vienna beef hot dogs with all the fixins, Italian beef, fried mushrooms, etc. AJ's may not match Portillo's in style, consistancy and execution, but if you want a taste of the Windy...

I've gone to Aj's a few times and it's always a decent quick meal. It's a right next to the KFC. Which i would pick Aj's over KFC any day. The fried cauliflower is really good. It's good food, not amazing but worth a quick dinner stop if your looking for something to eat in the area.

Hot dogs are good, but you need to remind them not to the add the catsup to a Chicago dog! Really! No catsup on a Chicago Dog!

This is the better fast food place in town. Call ahead for carry out and typically will be ready to pick up when you pay. Great value on the food. Subs are excellent. Gryos are very good.
