Good food at a reasonable price. Generous portions. I always get the Lasagna. It is delicious. I also like that they will let you substitute soup for salad.

We have been dining at TJ's for years, and every time we go it gets better & better! The owner is wonderful, service great, dinners huge and not pricey, and the garlic rolls are to die for! Our whole family loves TJ's...best restaurant in Lake County!

We recently ate here with our son at his request (we drive by at least once a week). As a family, we left full and happy! Service was quick and friendly, and the food was fresh and tasty. A great choice by our kid.

Have been going to TJ’s on the avenue for years. Have not had a bad meal yet. In fact all meals have been excellent. Could not ask for a better place to enjoy excellent Italian food, in a great atmosphere with great friendly service.

We were in from Boston visiting our son who is attending school in the area and I was craving italian food. We stopped in because we like trying mom and pop places instead of chain restaurants. It was awesome! The chicken parm and fresh pasta was absolutely delicious and my husband had a calzone which he could not even finish.... More
