PIZOOKIE. They had me at pizookie. I will never forget the first time I had one! I had never heard of BJ’s Restaurant but a co-worker of mine was raving about them so we decided to go for lunch. And I’ve been obsessed ever since. Now years later, there is a BJ’s Restaurant right down the street from my husband’s work. So you can bet that EVERY time we go to meet him for lunch, I BEG to go to BJ’s Restaurant! He usually gives me a little pushback because it is ALWAYS super busy. But after I told him that I had already downloaded BJ’s Restaurant’s new app with the “Dine In Order Ahead” and “Mobile Pay” feature, he agreed. SUCCESS! Here’s how it works:

BJ's Order Ahead Dine In App

1. Download the BJ’s Restaurant app (available for iphones and androids).

2. Browse the menu & order your meals (drinks & dessert too) and choose a date & time that you would like to eat at the restaurant.

3. As soon as you arrive at the restaurant, let the host know that you are on the preferred waitlist. You will then be seated and your order is placed immediately. No looking through the menu…your waiter will already have your entire order! TIP: I also made notes within the app to let the waiter know that we wanted our pizookie brought out AFTER our meal.

4. Use the Mobile Pay feature to pay for (there’s even an EASY built-in tip calculator) your meal with NO WAIT. This is my favorite part of the app! As a mom, I can’t tell you how many times I have had a tired 3.5 year old on my hands…so to be able to pay without waiting for a check is HUGE.  My husband loves this idea for business lunches! Talk about a major time saver.

And then there’s the food:

BJ's Cherry Chipotle Salmon

My husband ordered the Cherry Chipotle Salmon and loved it.

Cheddar Avocado Burger

I went with my usual…a cheeseburger with avocado and fries.

Grilled Cheese

Eep had his favorite…a grilled cheese sandwich.

Chocolate Chunk Pizookie

And OBVIOUSLY…you can’t go to BJ’s Restaurant and NOT order a pizookie! We ordered my fave…the chocolate chunk cookie with vanilla ice cream. Each one comes out hot & fresh from the oven and they are TO DIE FOR.

So next time you are craving BJ’s Restaurant, be sure and download the app. It’s free and a major time saver!
