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.

When we are in the area, we make it a point to stop here for the BBQ. This place is relaxing and food is wonderful.

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

We go here often. Always great food and lots of it. Make sure to wear stretchy pants. :) The soup is one of the best around and also the potatoes in the cast iron skillet. The steaks are great and also the fish options.

The most rustic of the three AJ Spurs restaurants. Still, the filets are the most tender and tasty of most steakhouses I've visited. The chuck wagon menu is good, but leave room for the entree and don't fill up on the stew.

Nice for family dining, but stick to the bar for adults. They do have good entertainment, but this is a family venue which is a positive and negative depending on which side of the fence you are on. Good food and drinks at a reasonable price.

The management has changed a number of times, and nobody has touched the dust and cobwebs in years. The food is mediocre and very expensive. Wish they would do a major overhaul and remodeling, it's definitely needed.

While wine tasting in the area, stopped in for a major dinner. The portions are quite large. Not a romantic setting but serviceable. The staff is friendly. Give it a shot, but soo many nice places to eat, not sure I would use up one of my nights to eat here upon returning to the area.

If you love food you have to go here. They bring out a cast iron pot of wonderful soup with beans, salsa, and tortillas. You then have a salad and then comes your steak along with a big pot of potatoes and bread. You get more than you can eat so left overs are a good reason to eat here,... More
