Small town gem. Park in the back although the sign is in the front with stairs and a door, that is for take-out/pick-up if your not a local or native. Pleasantly surprised once we went down stairs to find a full bar. Cool set-up. Lots...More

Always packed. Excellent pizza and nicely prepared other casual foods. Takeout upstairs. Table dining downstairs. Lots of locals frequent it. Popular summer stop for groups of motorcyclists. Good place to drop into when you're in the mood for a relaxed bite.

AJ's does not take reservations and if everyone in your party is not present no one will be seated until everyone arrives. They do take credit cards now however.
