A western style themed Restaurant in a western style town. Huge portions, good, not great food. Plenty of free street parking.Full bar. Soup and Cowboy potato's served with each meal family style. The salad was very below par. Large steak. I am a big eater and I couldn't finish all the food.

I liked other A J Spurs restaurants so I decided to try this one. It is located on Main Street in the small town of Templeton. Hard to find if you are driving by on the freeway, but worth stopping for. Service was excellent. The menu is interesting with a lot of offerings. When you are seated you immediately get... More

Family decided early in week we would be going to A Js during week. I seldom eat steak but, what the heck, it is a western steakhouse. Had my mind set on a ribeye. Well, I ordered the ribeye (@$35), and was told they were out of rib eyes. This was only Wednesday. Disappointed, I ordered the twin pork chops.... More

We stumbled upon the place because we needed a break from the drive from up north. Full bar - and we were told it was the only place in Templeton have a liquor license. Very western - note the name - very nice staff. Country music plays in the background. Food was very expensive. I ordered the AJ Burger -... More

Fabulous atmosphere, one could spend hours studying the exhibits. Old western style newspaper menu a great souvenir. As an aside good tucker. As we sat down we were provided with a cast iron skillet of vegetable and steak soup along with black beans and salas, then a nice green salad and our ordered entree. If then that was not sufficient... More

Friendly, themed atmosphere with live music. Lovely food (I had the 12oz sirloin steak) served in huge portions by friendly, attentive staff; as said elsewhere you will not leave here hungry!!

This place offers both seriously good food and seriously great portions. If you are on a diet such as weight watchers, choose another location because you will eat a week's worth in one sitting. Every main course comes with enough food to feed a small army aNd is super tasty. Down home, country decor offers a never ending supply of... More

The address says N. Main however it's actually South Main St. Husband & I had the onion rings & shared a hamburger. Plenty of food for both. Live music in the bar area on a Monday evening was a pleasant surprise.

AJ’s is a very relaxed dinner restaurant with a Western theme. They serve steaks, ribs, chicken, seafood, hamburgers and other meat items. The meals come with soup, beans, spuds and salsa which are served “Chuckwagon” style where you serve yourself from a single serving bowl. My husband liked the soup but I found it to be flavorless except for a... More
