Get the buffet--not a lot on it, but what is there is absolutely fabulous! Don't miss it, you won't regret it.

“Best fried chicken ever!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We were told that AJ's had the best fried chicken in Apalachicola so decided to check it out. I would say that AJ's may well have the best fried chicken in the world! We both got two pieces each, which were cooked perfectly with just enough crust and not too greasy. It is a twenty minute wait for the chicken but it is well worth it. Our waitress was attentive and friendly even though she was the only one taking care of the whole room.
The room where we ate is just a big square box dominated by a large bar with little ambiance, but the booth was comfortable and it was clean.
If we return to Apalachicola, we will definitely return to AJ's for that fried chicken!

“Soul food equals delicious food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We have eaten the lunch buffet and ordered off the menu. Both experiences were great. I LOVE the cooked cabbage and fried okra and fried chicken on the buffet. The burger was big and outfitted with all the desired trimmings. Either the side salad or fries work great. Don't miss this place!

“wonderful food as always”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

Went last night after a Christmas program at school. We obviously weren't the only ones who chose AJ's, as they had several tables with small children. Also a very large group, maybe 20, were there also. This is our slow time of year so that is a pretty good crowd and once you eat there you'll know why the locals like it so much. Everything on the menu is great, especially the chicken and it's reasonably priced so the locals can afford it. Our waitress was very friendly and took good care of us. At our table we had the hamburger steak, fried chicken, fried chicken livers and gizzards, kids chicken strips, and a chicken salad. Everybody left happy, full, and not broke. Worth going out of downtown Apalachicola for.

“Awesome food. Good taste. Don't expect much in the the way of hospitality.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012 via mobile

Burger was huge and juicy! Chicken is amazing! Sides are true soul food. Waitress was more worried about Maury povich than taking care of us. Cola is in the can and it's a buck each. No free refills unless you drink water or tea.
