“Quality Products, horrible service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Great food products esp, baked, deli ( best pizza around) and the back meat deli. The service however esp. in both deli's is just horrible. the absolute worst in the old pueblo. So be prepared. Wine on sale is an ok buy however nothing special.

“Super Classy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

This is the ultimate in fine grocery shopping. Eating here is a paradise. Best pizza by the slice and oh the prices are great on the pizza. Super sandwiches, sushi bar, salad bar. Best produce in town as well as meat, fish. A bit pricey but for quality sometimes you have to pay the price. It is just fun to check out each and every aisle. Also a lovely place to eat outdoors with great views of the mountains. In winter the fireplace is a plus.

“Always great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I visit AJ's bakery and sandwich shop very often and it is always fresh and delicious. I usually get the iced teas which have that perfect ice that is small pieces.

“Amazing Market!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

If you're looking to cook a fabulous meal, get a delicious ready made one, entertain guests or impress friends with a great bottle of wine or gift, you have to check out AJ's! The best meat and seafood counter I've seen in a long time and the delis will have you drooling! Oh, and the flowers and bakery are pretty amazing as well. They have a great looking sushi bar too but I didnt try that. This is definitely a high end grocery so the prices will reflect that, but the quality can't be beat, especially if you are looking for something special. Also a great spot if you want a quick bite to eat, they have lots to choose from and a nice seating area.

“Not worth the price”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

A co-worker and I went to AJ's for a quick lunch. The deli area was busy, and the service was terribly slow, making the wait even worse. It was also expensive at $9 for a pretty basic sandwich. Then I got sick afterwards. Not sure it was connected to the sandwich, but that's all I had eaten. Won't go back.
