Good food and friendly staff. Easy to find. Small parking lot. Drive thru service. Staple of Jamestown.

After reading all the great reviews, my husband and were all in for a great dog. We walked into a deserted lunch room with a tired order taker and tried to stir up some life in her. We ordered and received dogs with mustard, sauce...and onions. Seriously? The sauce was rather lumpy brown liquid that had a taste we couldn't identify. Fries were from a freezer bag and mealy. The tables were wiped but still gummy. Maybe my expectations were too high but YUCK. We threw it away and continued with our day.More

Asked the server at the front counter what was the fan favorite and she said anything with the sauce. I have to agree. I got a hamburger, hotdog, and the Texas fries with everything. Definitely a great value for your money as well.

New people, same food. For the first time ever, my fries were over done. The menu now includes a senior special (one dog instead of two and a smaller cold drink). A good dog and a decent price for the special.

I thought AJ's Texas Hots were the best thing ever. But then, we never ate out much so it was a real treat to get them. Now, I wonder how they stay in business. The hot dogs are OK but nothing special IMHO. The hot...dogs themselves are tiny, the ones that are 12 to a pound, I'm guessing. So, the sauce is what everyone goes for then I guess. And it's OK but again, nothing really special. The best I can say is it's a quick cheap lunch if you get their special deal. They are right next to the street so if there are two cars ahead of you to order at the drive thru, you will be waiting on the sidewalk. And there's no place to pull into so you can eat in your car. Pull around and into another business's parking lot. There are lots of spaces, just not at AJ's. The dogs can get kind of messy so you're best not trying to eat them while driving.More

I always enjoy getting 3 cheeseburgers with everything order fries and an orange milkshake. Prices are very reasonable. Not a fancy place but great Texas sauce. Actually think that they are better then the competition Johnny's. AJ's seems to have a little bit more Spice...in their sauce which I enjoy.More

When you taste the sauce on the hot dogs you will be coming back again. Texas sauce on french fries or hamburgers.

We've visited Jamestown from Michigan once yearly for 15 years. Until now we've always eaten at the other iconic hot dog place and liked it. Today we were on the other side of Jamestown and stopped at AJ.s. Clean. Friendly. Amazing deal: two hot dogs...with sauce and exceptionally sweet fresh onions freshly chopped, crispy fries that were delicious, and a generous sized pop for $ 5.15. My daughter-in-law has raved for the last five hours that not only were the onions tasty but that there was no bitterness afterwards. (Vidalia onions perhaps?) What really impressed me was that when we got to our next shopping store I noticed that I had left my stash of cash somewhere ($ 200.00) There was no I.D. with the cash. We drove back to A.J.'s. All 5 employees saw me coming, met me at the door, "Looking for this?" I was glad. I was also super impressed! A.J.'s has my vote for the best place to go for a fast meal in Jamestown.More

A tender hotdog with sauce and a peanut butter milkshake is all you need for any meal. Great value and great food

Stopped for a quick meal and was surprised at the décor. Not that it was new, but that it was freshly repainted. We ordered the special (twoTexas hots with everything, that being chili sauce, mustard and onions), fries and a Pepsi. As usual, the dogs...were great, the fries were hot and the Pepsi was cold. What was new was the price. Over $5.00 when it was once under $4.00. Still a great price for filling food.More
