The best breakfast in all of Phoenix. There is no bad dish to be had from TJs. The biscuits and gravy are a personal favorite. All the omelettes are outstanding as well. My wife and I go to TJs almost every other weekend.

What a great find thanks to Trip Advisor. Nice, small family owned local restaurant. The French toast was awesome as suggested by the waitress. I'll be back if I'm in this area again for breakfast.

We have lived in the area for a number of years, but had never ventured in until this week. I really don't see what all the fuss is about because I was not not all that impressed with the food. My biscuits for biscuits and gravy were burned, and the rest of the scramble was dry and crumbly. Service was... More

The breakfast here used to be amazing but the new owners have not lived up to the benchmark set by the previous ownership. Its still a good breakfast but does not distance itself from others in the area like it used to. The wait on the weekends can be long.

We have been here a couple times for breakfast. It was good and large portions. We have taken a couple pies home, and each are good and not overly sweet like some places. Great place to grab a meal.

We ate there twice in one week. First time was for dinner. I ate the Sunday special if broasted chicken. It was delicious. It's been decades since I've had it and it felt good, too! We came back a week later for breakfast. I had ham and cheese omelet. Yummy! I can't give five stars because my toast was very... More

Had not been to TJs in a few years. First visit since expansion First they need to fix the slamming doors which had me on edge entire visit. Seriously all it needs is an adjustment. I can't go back unless they fix this. Visited on Sunday afternoon. I ordered an omelet and my friend ordered broasted chicken. Server said it... More

Had not been to TJs since they expanded and was surprised by the size of the place and also the crowd. The place was packed but we only waited a few minutes to get seated. Our server arrived quickly with coffee. We ordered and our food arrived quickly, was well prepared and delicious. Try the cinnamon raisin toast, it is... More

My husband and I wanted to have breakfast. We have driven by this place numerous times. Today was the day for us to go by and try. This is a Mom and Pop place. Everything is fixed from scratch. We were greeted and seated at our table. The menu contained a good variety of food choices. I decided on 2... More
