Family Style Dining starts off every meal at AJ’s with a hearty vaquero soup, tequila beans, and homemade salsa. We recommend you mix them together. In addition to the restaurant, AJ’s also offers a bar area and may accommodate large parties. You will enjoy the eclectic mix of western décor and the unique collection of stuffed animals displayed throughout the restaurant. Our search for the ideal location for another A.J. Spurs ended when we came upon this rustic log “cabin” in the Santa Ynez Valley. Named after Rufus Thompson Buell, the history of the land and it’s people is captured and brought to life inside the massive log structure that opened in April 1990.
