BJ's is new to the Pittsburgh dining scene, having just opened a new restaurant at McCandless Crossing. They are a chain based out of California, and are know for having a large menu, and making their own craft beers.
We arrived around 8PM on a Saturday and were told that there would be a 45 minute wait. Around 35 minutes later we were seated. To start we ordered a few beverages. Mrs.Yinzer ordered a house made Berry Burst Cider, which was fruity with a dry finish, not overly sweet.
|Berry Burst Cider $5.75|
|Tatonka Stout $6.25|
|California Flatbread $9.75|
Then our entrees came. Mrs.Yinzer ordered the Mediterranean Chicken Pita Tacos, Little Yinzer ordered a small (9") BJ's Favorite Deep Dish Pizza, I ordered a Bacon Cheeseburger.
|Mediterranean Chicken Pita Tacos $9.25|
|BJ's Favorite Deep Dish Pizza $15.25|
|Bacon Cheeseburger $10.95|
Oh and I almost forgot. Try one of their home brewed sodas. The Cream Soda is a real delight with notes of vanilla and butterscotch.
By and large our meal at BJ's was a good experience. Service was good except when the waitress asked me how everything was while I had a mouth full of food, hate that. Prices are a little high for the quality and quantity. Huge beer selection to keep even the snootiest of beer snobs busy.
