A&J -- first visit, which could be the last

Lee | Jan 2, 2005 09:25 PM

After all the wonderful things people here have said about A&J's, I thought I would check it out today. I brought my 11-year-old son. The experience was WAY below what I had expected. First of all, the place is a dump with very little parking, with abandoned buildings practically next door. Second, the English menu was about a third of the length of the Chinese menu. Third, the service was terrible. Everything took forever to get to the table, no one showed any inclination to help find mild food for my son or to say what was available but not on the English menu, and when I tried to catch a waitress' eye to ask for anything (including the check), they were too busy chatting with each other and a few of the customers. All that said, the food was pretty good, but nothing special. I was quite disappointed.
