BJ’s is one of those chain restaurants that don’t feel like a commercial chain because you never really see it on television or in print advertisements. People usually find out about this restaurant by word of mouth, or after being invited by a friend. I was brought in by the legend of the Pizookie. What is a Pizookie you ask? Well, it’s a warm cookie shaped like a pizza and topped off with two scoops of creamy vanilla ice cream!
They have a couple of options, like Peanut Butter and or Oreo. For first timers I suggest Chocolate Chunk. It sounds like such a simple dessert, but it will blow your mind!
BJ’s also has a very extensive menu of mostly American classics like hamburgers and deep dish Chicago style pizza. They also have ten regular beers on tap and seasonal beers available. I like to ask the server for a sample before I try something new. Call ahead on the weekends because that is usually when they have a bit of a wait!
