We eat there as a group every year. They are always very friendly in putting tables together for us. The town looks deserted outside when we come in January, but they always have a good business of the locals. The standard country cooking is good. They also have an all day breakfast menu. I had a chicken pasta with broccoli... More

Have eaten here a few times. ALWAYS try to stop if I'm in Mountain View. The roast beef is the BEST! Real mashed potatoes and gravy & green beans. My daughter had a grilled cheese she deemed FANTASTIC!

After a trip to Blanchard springs caverns, my family and I came to PJs for a late lunch. What drew us was a review that mentioned Elvis memorabilia, but now that we have eaten the food and experienced their service, we would come back anytime! Even though they were super busy with Black Friday buzz, they still seated our party... More

First of all save room for the pie OMG the coconut cream pie is amazing. And you should consider having the biscuits. Folks in this part of the country really take their biscuits seriously and this place have some of the best biscuits I've ever eaten. We were in town for four days and eat there three times ... enough... More

Very friendly and helpful!! The food was also wonderful! The chicken fried steak was excellent! The sides were all delicious!! Real mashed potatoes and... More

We ate here on a busy Saturday at noon. The food was very good and the service was great! The servers were nice and friendly and even though the place was packed our food was out quickly. The prices are perfect for what you are getting - meat and three, bean soup and cornbread, burgers, sandwiches, etc. Very good place... More

It's a great little diner with home cooked meals. Always has a special of the day that consist of about 3 different entrees. I ordered the fried fish during our last visit. It was crisp and tasty. The side veggies are good and fresh. Plenty of locals eat there as well as tourists from around the square. It's quick and... More

Visited this restaurant based on Trip Advisors reviews. The restaurant was quite busy. We opted for a small taco salad and a blackened chicken salad. Also ordered a bowl of pinto beans with cornbread for an appetizer. My taco salad was more than enough for me. It was a nice size shell filled with taco meat, beans, lettuce, tomatoes &... More
