This restaurant feels more local and comfortable than places like IHOP or Dennys. The food came out quick and was delicious. I tried a Monte Cristo for the first time and was impressed. We will definitely be back in the future.

Great food....great service. The place to be if you want comfort food. Home cooked food. Good serving sizes. I have enough to take home and have breakfast tomorrow!

We were in Turlock recently visiting family and went to AJ's for breakfast a few times. Their breakfast is excellent, very generous servings. Even though there were 6 of us they managed to get us seated quickly. Everything that we ordered was fantastic. I got the biscuits and gravy one morning and I'm telling you, those were the best biscuits... More

This place serves the best omelets. Waitresses are very attentive to making sure your coffee cup stays full. Nice quiet place. Reasonable prices. Location is so so. But if your looking for a great breakfast spot this is it!!

I had breakfast here while I was waiting for new tires to be installed on my car. Yummy food, even though, I enjoyed traditional fare. Eggs, sausage, hash browns, sour dough toast with jam and coffee. The cook nailed it. Good stuff and reasonably priced.

You get the delicious well cooked food of a exquisite restaurant hidden in a hometown family diner. You walk in expecting a basic meal and are very warmly surprised when they bring these mouthwatering and well plated dishes of food that look put together by a 5 star chef.

Always consistent food quality; dependable! My favorites are their swedish pancakes and diced potatoes! When in the mood for a hearty breakfast this is a top choice!

We often eat here for breakfast. The food is always high quality, the service is fast and the servers are friendly. I think that AJ's has the best orange juice in the state. Definitely a popular spot in Turlock.
