“great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

I have been going to PJ Rufos for 6 years & have never had a bad meal . The service is very friendly & professional . The owners PJ & Paul always make you feel comfortable . Every friday there is live entertainment & most of the time pretty good . The bartenders are also very friendly & make a very good drink .

“Had our salon Christmas party here last night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012 via mobile

The place is in a strip mall and this usually isn't a good sign, but the mall was closed and the parking lot was FULL! The place was hopping at 7:00on a sat night. The bar was nice (bartender not so friendly but made a killer martini) the owner was there all night and kept checking to make sure we were happy with everything ! Very nice touch. Food was awesome! The balsamic calamari was unique and amazing! I had a pork chop special but 8 of us at the table were sharing everything, and every bite was great! Nice to find a place that takes pride in the kitchen! COCONUT cream dessert cups were my favorite! They had to roll us out to the car!!! Too full but had to finish dessert! I'd go back..

“So many reasons to keep going back...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

This is the easiest review to write... I am a 'foodie' and I like my food in a relaxed atmosphere that gives me, in this case, exceptional Italian American food, large portions may I add, and great service. This restaurant has it all. You walk in and automatically feel at home, whether you are seated at the bar, a table, or with a group in a more private setting. The owners are always present, the menu not overwhelming, and the Specials are carefully chosen. The price is right, and so is the experience. I've been to PJ Rufos' numerous times, and honestly, I have never had a bad meal, ever...One more thing, they also offer a combination of samplers if you're having a hard time picking one item. Very few restaurants offer that. On specific nights, there is also entertainment, which is excellent and does not interfere with conversations, this restaurant really has it all. Visit their website, and give them a try, you may find a home away from home too!

“Nice Place for dinner or small private party”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2012

The best Mozzarella en Carroza! Little deep fried mozzarella sandwiches served with marinara sauce for dipping. It's my favorite Italian appetizer and PJ Rufo's is the best!!
