AJ Spurs


350 E Hwy 246, Buellton, CA 93427
(805) 686-1655

We have been to AJ Spurs many times over the years and it does not dissapoint.  In fact we strongly believe that you have not been to the the Solvang area until you visit AJ Spurs in Buelton.   Before you enter AJ Spurs you will notice an array of Western artifacts on the outside of the rather large restaurant.  When you enter AJ Spurs the first thing you will see is a large stuffed buffalo. (taxodermy).
My children always like the toy chest that they keep near the front too.  There is a great children's menu.
Dinner includes beef / vegetable stew, salad, and entree with rice and kettle like potatoes and dessert.
