Had dinner here with my Brother, his GF and my Nephew and his wife. Great service and the selection of food is great. The really fun part is that you look at the prices and your like, yeah right! However, you have to look at...the fine print and see that it comes with soup, salad, beans potatoes and dessert! Wow! What a deal. The insides are really fun to look at with the Western Motifs!More

It is unfortunate- I have not been there in quite a while. They seem to have run their course and it is a little tired. The food is so so. Not a lot of bold flavors really. You get tons of food But they are...really over priced. The web site is WAY out dated the prices were off by about 10-15 dollars. A steak salad on the website was about $18 BUT in the menu at the restaurant it was $28. ! AND to make it worse it was iceberg lettuce, carrots, tomatoes and about 5 thin slices of steak. w/ a piece of pretty plain and sad Garlic bread. The sides come family style so that salad also had potatoes, rice and soup. The ribs tasted like they were boiled and then had some BBQ sauce smeared over them. No flavor at all. The service was not very good Never came to refill drinks and never found the same person twice. The place was pretty busy so people must like it there. We will Not go back. And while I am here let me just say that the new policy of showing people what to tip on the bottom of the receipt is mis leading- You do NOT tip on the tax. The percentage of tip is on the price of the food/drinks and NOT the tax.More

Western themed. ... you should have guessed from the name. Solid steakhouse with good service. Sides are excellent here, so actually a favorite veggie place for me. Giant fluffy baked potatoes, nice dinner salads. But the grilled asparagus is fabulous- best I ever had.

Thanks for accommodating us today! We had a wonderful meal and had no idea what to expect. Very friendly staff and generous portions and add-ons. We were delighted and tickled to receive a dessert! Didn't realize initially that it was included so we were delighted...with the overall experience. And yes the ambiance is great!!!!More

I like the idea of family style but their soup was awful and the beans were nasty, not fresh at all . If you are going to have family style offer appealing sides . I paid a lot of money for a family get together...and the food was mediocre at best . I would never go back here.More

You get so much food before you get your dinner, that when dinner does come you just get it boxed up. Every one gets A.J.’s Hearty Vaquero Soup, Tequila Beans, Homemade Salsa (yep, mix’em all together), Garden Salad, A.J.’s Spuds, Rice Pilaf, French Garlic Bread...and your choice of an Old-Fashioned Root Beer Float or an After-Dinner Liqueur. We asked if we could split a meal they said yes but you had to split the dinner up yourself. My husband and I split a Ribeye Steak and 3 Shrimp. The ribeye had a lot of gristle not good but was cooked perfectly. Still by the time the steak came we were too full to eat. For the price you should not have gristle. Everything else was good.More

I had their menu with holiday opening and only sent it to my brother in Canada last week. I’m almost sure they do but I would check their website.

The menu is probably online at their website. But if it were me, I'd probably chose Jocko's or the original Hitching Post in Casmalia. More driving, but I think better service. AJ Spurs is a little too corporate-chain for... More
