I decided to go inside to see the menu. No one else was in line and cashiers were not sure on specials. Food seemed to take a long time to get and was cold

My husband was given the wrong beverage and wrong size. Staff were rude and arguementative with him. Used to be a favorite of mine now I am left with a craving... More

This is one of the roomier TJ's I've been in, and it was a very nice place. As always the food is outstanding and the staff were really freindly and helpful. I'm going back there again soon! Chicken Super Burrito with extra hot sauce and large Potato Oles! Heaven!
