Decent hot dog joint!

Good stuff if you're out to clog your arteries. I used to go here regularly before my quadruple by-pass. Excellent food, good prices, moderate wait times. For a hot-dog joint, what's not to love.

I usually go to AJ's for Gyros and Italian beef. The Italian Beef is over the norm and always get an extra Italian bun for the beef over the top of the sandwich. An order of fries with it tops it all off. I prefer AJ's over POP's and Portillo's for beef and the Gyros or other establishments.

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.
