We read great reviews so were disappointed at our visit. I ordered the fried fish which looked great but was not so much. My husband had pizza and it was pretty bad. Guess we should have ordered pasta.

Been there a number of times including ordering for pick up. Their food is always good and very well priced. Not sure I have ever had anything I was not satisfied with and they tenderize the chicken to a nice thin piece which is rare...More

Great Family owned Italian restaurant. My Aunt’s favorite is the Chicken Parmesan but I love the Chicken Madison. I pair with broccoli and salad (try the house and ranch together). So delicious! Enjoy.

Absolutely love eating here! The food is always amazing and the staff is friendly and attentive. Small family owned place with original and classic Italian dishes. Nothing bad to say about TJs.

Excellent Chicken Alfredo for lunch at a very low price. Fresh pasta and great service. This place is hard to beat.

The food was good, and more than enough that I was able to have some for lunch the next day. The only complaint would be that the vents are not clean, which is a problem for some people. The staff is friendly with plenty parking.

We only go to TJ's on The Avenue when we want Chicken Marsala. Best taste and prepared correctly. Good service - all others foods are very good. Attentive server without being in your face every 5 minutes..
