According to most restaurant critics, the perfect soul food is served on a plate, which rests on a table with legs. Try some authentic American soul food the way it was meant to be served with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of eats and drinks at AJ on the Rails, located downtown. This Groupon is good for dine-in only, and may be used during happy hour.
AJ on the Rails is a cozy culinary joint that features a menu filled with delicious soul food, from fried chicken and burgers to tasty breakfast options offered all day long. Cancel the curse of waking up on the wrong (left) side of the bed by starting the day with a classic breakfast of two customized eggs, toast or home fries, and a choice of sausage, bacon, ham, or veggie sausage (starting at $5.95). Get caffeinated with a cup of AJ-roasted coffee ($2) or carbonated with a foamy root beer ($2), America’s traditional morning-time beverage. For lunch, dig into a plate of Southern fried chicken with mashed potatoes and veggies ($10.95) or a housemade meatloaf sandwich on sourdough ($8.95). As part of AJ’s "Get Bucked!" economic stimulus pack, the restaurant offers burgers for $4 and beer for a dollar every day, plus all appetizers are $3.95 during happy hour (4 p.m. to 6 p.m. daily).
Thursday nights are reserved for karaoke, and select Fridays feature an open mic poetry slam for exceptionally skilled rhyme dunkers. The various events enable patrons to put creative talents to the test while silencing the noisy appetite of the soul. The happenings inside AJ on the Rails foster a sense of community that extends beyond the castle walls; the restaurant has been participating in a disadvantaged-youth program since its inception.
