Adding gourmet ingredients to a meal makes a commonplace activity feel special, much like brushing your teeth with a sparkler or withdrawing money from an ATM while holding it at gunpoint. Spice up a mundane day with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of fine and fast American fare at AJ’s Casual Eatery in Roseville.
AJ’s Casual Eatery marries a menu of gourmet eats with speedy counter service in laid-back environs. Similar to diamond-studded snow tires, the curious mash-up boasts both practicality and refinement. Do-it-yourselfers can build their own six-ingredient salads ($6.75) or take on a house specialty such as the apple chicken walnut ($8.50). Signature sandwiches such as grilled cheese and bacon ($6.75) or a trio of tri-tip sliders under a canopy of crispy onions ($8) invite finger foodies to dive in. For those seeking sustenance a tad more toothsome, the chef carves up slabs of smoked tri-tip, roasted turkey, and marinated chicken, each served with two sides and cornbread ($8.95–9.95).
Patrons can corral a high-backed booth to spy on mounted plasmas broadcasting big games and big news or take their repast to the secluded outdoor patio for fresh air, sunshine, and periodic throw downs with flocks of hungry pigeons. A kids' menu inspires family meals and fellowship, and karaoke every Wednesday from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m. encourages individuals who need no encouragement.
