We used to live in the area (40 years there), and never had a particularly good meal at any of the AJ Spurs locations. We came here, however, because we were staying with friends and wanted to treat them to a dinner as one way of thanking them for their hospitality. We chose this AJ Spurs because it is our... More

I really loved the atmosphere and live music. Not to mention the food. It was delicious. I had the chops. The were cooked perfectly tender and juicy. We went on a Wednesday night and there was no waiting. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

We eat here every trip up to Paso Robles. Split an entrée and get the fixings for another person. the soup is great! food great, haven't had a bad bite. Devra was our waitress-fun gal...Toto rocked! You'll drop a couple bucks, but you won't be hungry, and you'll take food with you

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

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
