We stumbled upon the place because we needed a break from the drive from up north. Full bar - and we were told it was the only place in Templeton have a liquor license. Very western - note the name - very nice staff. Country music plays in the background. Food was very expensive. I ordered the AJ Burger -... More

Fabulous atmosphere, one could spend hours studying the exhibits. Old western style newspaper menu a great souvenir. As an aside good tucker. As we sat down we were provided with a cast iron skillet of vegetable and steak soup along with black beans and salas, then a nice green salad and our ordered entree. If then that was not sufficient... More

Friendly, themed atmosphere with live music. Lovely food (I had the 12oz sirloin steak) served in huge portions by friendly, attentive staff; as said elsewhere you will not leave here hungry!!

This place offers both seriously good food and seriously great portions. If you are on a diet such as weight watchers, choose another location because you will eat a week's worth in one sitting. Every main course comes with enough food to feed a small army aNd is super tasty. Down home, country decor offers a never ending supply of... More

The address says N. Main however it's actually South Main St. Husband & I had the onion rings & shared a hamburger. Plenty of food for both. Live music in the bar area on a Monday evening was a pleasant surprise.

AJ’s is a very relaxed dinner restaurant with a Western theme. They serve steaks, ribs, chicken, seafood, hamburgers and other meat items. The meals come with soup, beans, spuds and salsa which are served “Chuckwagon” style where you serve yourself from a single serving bowl. My husband liked the soup but I found it to be flavorless except for a... More

We go here often. Always great food and lots of it. Make sure to wear stretchy pants. :) The soup is one of the best around and also the potatoes in the cast iron skillet. The steaks are great and also the fish options.

The most rustic of the three AJ Spurs restaurants. Still, the filets are the most tender and tasty of most steakhouses I've visited. The chuck wagon menu is good, but leave room for the entree and don't fill up on the stew.

Nice for family dining, but stick to the bar for adults. They do have good entertainment, but this is a family venue which is a positive and negative depending on which side of the fence you are on. Good food and drinks at a reasonable price.
