Located on Center Street aka Route 491, the colorful building housing PJs is up for sale, but still open for business.  The interior is divided up into two sections; the restaurant and the pool hall which also has tables for dining.

Lets get to my favorite part, the menu and ordering; the menu is on a board next to the kitchen counter where you place your order.  Whether it is take out or dine in, the food will be brought out to you with a smile.  The menu itself is small in comparison to most places that also serve burgers and fries; but this is great food done up right, not fast food sitting under a heat lamp.

After ordering a cheeseburger which comes with fries, I asked about the Buffalo Wings.  I love Buffalo Wings, but only if they're deep fried, then sauced.  Many places bake the wings; and I abhor mushy, gummy skin on my wings!  For all you lovers of authentic Buffalo wings, I have found nirvana for you...PJs does them right, deep fried and sauced!!!

Update: I went back on January 24, 2015 and got the Buffalo Wings with fries.  You have a choice of two sauces: hot or sweet and spicy; I chose sweet and spicy.  By themselves, these wings are uplifting; dip them into the ranch dressing that comes with the meal and you won't want your feet to touch the ground again.

Anyway, the cheeseburger is massive; 4 and 1/2 inches in diameter making it stick outside the 4 and 1/4 inch bun, and its 1/4 inch thick; lettuce, pickles, onion, ketchup and mustard are the toppings.  The French fries were so loaded up (crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside), they were spilling off my plate; and yes!  they come with Utah's favorite, fry sauce.

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner; if you need a meal to take on a hike or picnic, PJs can box it up for you, no problem.

Thankfully, PJs has stayed open while it has been for sale; just hoping that whoever eventually buys it will keep the concept of good food done right, not nasty fast food...and don't do away with those authentic buffalo wings!
