Go ahead and ask any of the briskly efficient waitresses at T.J.'s just how long this funky-looking, low-slung diner has been a fixture in beautiful downtown Grandview. After a good pause, the answer is always the same: "A long time." For more than two decades (by most accounts), this homey little joint has served three meals a day -- with specials such as bacon-cheddar chicken, ham and beans with cornbread, and chicken-fried steak. Because T.J.'s is just off U.S. Highway 71 and in the center of Grandview's "business district," the crowd is an eclectic mix of tattooed truck drivers, men in three-piece suits waiting for their cars to be repaired at Weinberg Chevrolet, and hungry locals who know they get a lot of bang for the buck here. Bring cash, though -- no plastic is accepted.
