“Food & Staff Great - but get rid of the little flies.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

I don't know what is going on with this place lately but the small flies/nats are very annoying while eating. The food is great and the staff is very personable but when your sitting in a booth and have naps everywhere it is very annoying. Been here a month ago and the same thing. Also - don't bother ordering a small pizza - its not worth the price. Its tiny....so order the large. Other than that - I cannot complain about the food.

“Great food, reasonable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

My family and I enjoy ordering takeout here about once a week. The food is great and the prices are reasonable. We all have our favorite dishes and have had the pizza, wraps, and subs which are all delicious. But my personal fav is the stuffed mushrooms! If you are in the area this is a great place to eat in a casual atmosphere.

We live locally and enjoy TJ's weekly. It is consistently good, the prices are reasonable, the portions are generous and the owner/family is super friendly and funny. Great pizza, salads, entrees, etc.

“Great Family Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

We live locally and are always in search of an easy night out with good food at reasonable prices. Lately that has been TJ's. Excellent service, owner chef willing to bend the menu to our daughter's tastes and generous portions. Great pizza, calamari and entries. We'll be back.

“consistantly good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

Good choice of the basics: apps, salads, sandwiches. The dinner plates and specials are a very good value, served with salad and homemade rolls with fabulous garlic oil for dipping. Our favs are the chicken pita-their take on a souvlaki , and the steak topped salad, an excellent small steak cooked to order on fresh greens with good dressing. The food is always fresh and fast. I don't care for the pizza, but I am extremely picky about my pie, so I do not discount them for that. The family and staff are always friendly and welcoming. This is our go to place, very busy in the summer, when take out is a good option.
