We now have one in San Antonio. I know to try the beer flights and the homemade root beer. What's a good food item to order? Thanks

      Their pizza is great. Thick dough with crispy edges, with a slightly sweet taste to it. Love the potato wedges and of course PIZOOKIE... a reason for living in itself.

        The pizza is a step up from thick crust Pizza Hut pizza.

        The Pizookie is the best thing on the menu as far as the food goes. It is the only reason we go there any more.

          The pizookie is great. We get one and share it. I like the BBQ chicken salad but always get the dressing on side. My friend loves the white sauce pizzas. We like going to the ones by the beach in CA and stay away from the bigger ones they have been opening inland. They're more neighborhoody.

          I don't especially like the pizza-too bready.

          I think the chili is pretty good..I can taste the beer in it.

            Their jambalaya is decent. The spiciness of it creeps up on you.

              A second from me on the Chicken Wings, really good...some of my favorites. The Pale Ale is really nice and when the Fish and Chips are good...they are really good!

              when forced to eat here, i order the blackened chicken sandwich w/o the mayo, and hold the bread (gluten intolerant), but i really like the blackening seasoning they use on the chicken.

                The chicken wings were surpsingly good. As was the clan chowder, french dip, pizookie of course and the thein pizza on the appetizer menu

                  Very good pizza, beer, and the Pizookie at BJ's. Also, make sure to order extra sauce since they spread it on thinner than normal. They also put diced tomatoes on the pizza; this can either be good or bad depending on your taste. It is the pan pizza style (thick crust), but it is one of the best examples I have had. It is NOT Chicago pizza, but it is very good none the less. Some locations have cider on tap as well.

                  The smashed potatoes and burgers are also very good. Stick to the basics and your will enjoy the place as much as I do.
