I've been having breakfast at TJ's just about every Sunday morning after church, for the past 7 or 8 years. There is always a crowd and we expect to wait a half-hour or more but it's worth it! Prices are reasonable, and portions are large. The menu consists of standard fare but with additional homemade muffins, cinnamon rolls, and pies... More

We love a good breakfast (non-franchise) place. This qualifies as a neighborhood food place and the regulars really like it. We have enjoyed two meals there and were not disappointed by the quality of the food and the amount you receive. Good breakfast meats and breads. We don't come every week, but when we have time, it is worth the... More

The food is regular "greasy spoon" diner food. The waitresses have attitude which can be fun if you get their humor. The pies are alway excellent but if you want one for Thanksgiving order it well in advance!

As a local this place is great sometimes the wait on Saturdays and Sundays is long but it's worth it. The only set back is the service you need to hunt a waitress down to get a coffee refill and to get your check, if your willing to look past the no refills and you have patience it's a good... More

Excellent food at very reasonable prices. A busy restaurant but well worth the short wait. Everyone there made us feel more than welcome.The Belgian waffle was melt in your mouth good. Not only homemade bread but also homemade pies and cookies. Go there whenever I can.

We were in the area for a concert and overnight stay. Looking for a breakfast place before heading back north, we found TJs on the tripadvisor site. We arrived around 8:15 on a Sunday morning and had about a 15-20 minute wait. I had the French Toast which was on a delicious french bread. My husband was a bit disappointed... More

They had me at "homemade cinnamon rolls." But they also serve homemade raisin toast, which I had (in addition to above) on our second visit. The omelettes are fabulous, too. In fact, everyone eating everything looks very happy eating at TJ's, making the short wait in this always packed place worth it. You can't get bored waiting either, as the... More

My wife has been here with friends I have always heard great food priced low. I finally got to go there with her and here is my review. Long wait but worth it. Tell the guy taking names that your name is Yolanda. Might help. They have pies and such in a display by the register that look incredible and... More

Ate breakfast here on a Monday and was seated right away. We ordered the waffle combo and french toast combo. Both were very good! Service was prompt and friendly, we'll be eating here a lot.
