I know this is not a recipe post but rather a restaurant review.  I’m not going to lie we eat out about once or twice a week and BJ’s Restaurant just happens to be one of our favorite restaurants.  Almost five years ago I was introduced to this chain restaurant by my good friend Jessica.  She just kept raving about their pizookies and how great they were.  Let’s just say these pizookies changed my World for the better.  This is also a special restaurant to us because when my mom was living with us during her radiation treatments we would occasionally go dine at the restaurant.  I was about 6 months pregnant at the time and we actually came up with Olivia’s full name while we were eating there one night.  Random I know.  We also joke that this is my mom’s restaurant because her name is Betty Jane (BJ).

I literally jumped at the opportunity to work with BJ’s Restaurant and to showcase their Summer BBQ menu that is going on right now.  Beer and BBQ is definitely a good start to any meal.

They teamed up with Big Poppa Smokers to come up with this delicious menu.  I didn’t have to convince Shaun on going out to eat.  All he needed to hear was BJ’s Restaurant and BBQ.  This special BBQ menu is going on right now at your local restaurant until September 2nd.

We started off with corn fritters and bacon ailoi as our appetizer.

Then our waitress recommended that we try the BJ’s Blue Ribbon BBQ Combo for two.  It came with ribs, chicken, corn bread and two sides which we chose steamed vegetables and wedge fries.  Yes, that is my plate in the picture below and this is after we split the food up.  It was a lot of FOOD and we couldn’t even finish.  I’m sad to say that I actually had to turn down the pizookie this round just because I didn’t want to leave the restaurant feeling miserable.

The chicken that we had was super moist and I could have put the chicken away myself.  Shaun really enjoyed the ribs and so did Olivia

BJ's Restaurant-6As you can see we all enjoyed our dining experience at BJ’s restaurant and we will definitely be going back to try out more delicious things.  I will also save room for the pizookie.

  1. So fun and that last photo is adorable!

  2. First off I want to say superb blog! I had a
    quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.

    I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Appreciate
