When I heard TJ’s opened near my house I new it was one of those awesome and awful things. The good news is they’re not open on Sundays, when I tend to eat crap for sport. But regardless, I made it in and dined on delicious diner delicacies.
If I remember right, TJ’s is the home of Kyle’s favorite burger. So that was my motivation when I ate there. I looked on the menu and decided on the jalapeno burger,which has grilled jalapenos and onions with pepperjack cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayo. And the menu’s a little confusing, but I don’t think fries come with their burgers. I saw they had cheese fries, so I ordered those. And I was charged for the menu price of the burger plus the menu price of the cheese fries, so I THINK you order your sides separately.
The place was pretty cool inside. Kind of an old fashioned looking diner, and a place I would like to go late at night to study or read. But I think the place is only open until 9:00. So that’s not really realistic. But that’s legit. I wouldn’t want to work that late, either. The service was very friendly. And it wasn’t exactly fast food, but I’m not complaining. I hate rushed meals.
The cheese fries were awesome! I mean, we all know I’ll hit on anything con queso, but I’ve had bad cheese fries before. These get my blessing, and are on my list of things I daydream about semi-regularly. The hamburger was really good and more than enough, but I wasn’t a fan of the grilled onions and jalapenos. I’m not sure why. They had a weird smoky taste that I wasn’t a fan of. I took them off the burger, though, and it seemed to do the trick.
Overall, good experience, good food, good service. Pop is kind of pricey. But I think that at most places anymore. I can’t figure out why the price of pop’s going up so much compared to other food prices. But, I digress.
I think these bad boys had cheese sauce AND shredded cheddar. SO delicious. My heart rate is increasing just looking at this picture.
