This place has good breakfasts and great service. The ladies there are friendly, right there to fill your coffee up, and always available if you need something.

Went in for lunch 2 weeks after their reopening in a new location. The new place is very nice. The decor is diner classy! The food was good and reasonably priced. The service was outstanding. And NO smoking!

TJ's was a great lil family diner. Very popular and been around a long time. Lots of locals ate here all the time. Food was like home cooked and staff always friendly. Sad to see it burned down a few weeks ago! Hopefully owners will rebuild.

I fell in love with bisquits and gravy back in the 60's here when it was called Odens Cafe. I decided to stop in for lunch. The people are still some of the best folks you can meet. I ordered aburger and fries! Yummy food!

Depends on the cook, with quality of food you get. High prices, not very clean. Salt and pepper shakers, were disgustingly dirty.
