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

I have been eating at TJ'S for 20 plus years. Now that they have expanded the quality of both the food and service has become awful. I took my two adult son's and thier girlfriends for a Sunday brunch that turned into a regrettable outing. We waited about 40 min to be seated. That was the highlight of the morning.... More

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!
