I've visited this hookah bar on multiple occasions in hope that they would improve the many flaws that plague them. If you are a seasoned hookah smoker like myself, you may be disappointed by the sub-par bowls that are packed incorrectly.The overall decor in the place is actually very well thought out and compliments the hookah culture very well. Except, this may be hard to notice as your ears are blasted by gangsta rap music.I thought I was paranoid when I noticed this the first time, but after multiple visits with different guests, I confirmed that customers of middle-eastern descent get somewhat better customer service. In an attempt to debunk this observation, I once asked for a decent hose and a larger tobacco bowl as I noticed a few tables seated with regulars had them. I was informed that they only had 1 type of bowl even though the contrary was evident. The only luck I've had was in getting the coco naro coals instead of the nasty insta-lites.In hopes that the owner reads this review, I may offer some advice towards improving their establishment:-Treat all your customers the same. Your business will not expand from regulars alone-Dispose of those cheap plastic hoses that leak and degrade the overall experience.-Invest in better bowls, the cheap clay bowls are not working for you.-Play a more neutral music at a more social-friendly volume. A good rule of thumb is that its loud enough that it drowns out people across the room, but not the person sitting 3 feet across from you.-Train your hookah packers properly. Pack the bowls loose enough for a good draw, but tight enough for a thick and flavorful cloud of smoke. Do not pack the shisha so close to the top of the bowl as this causes the shisha to burn regardless of how often you rotate the coals. The quality of the tobacco is fine, but the bad packing skills resulted in bowls that were mediocre at best.1 star for the patient waitress1 star for the decor.
http://rimart.us/2012/03/review-bj-restaurant-in-daytona-beach/BJ Restaurant is one of our family’s favorite dining places within the Daytona Beach area. Aside from their wide choices of food and beverages, we like the quick service from the staff and the hip-and-lively ambiance. Be forewarned though, the waiting line can be long, especially during dinner service. But if you are looking for peace-and-quiet, this is not the place for you. The other night, our family decided to eat dinner at BJ. On our way there, we were crossing our fingers, hoping for a shorter waiting period. We got lucky! We instantly got a table. The knight ordered his favorite New Orleans Jambalaya, which is really good. In fact, it was once my favorite, but I had to stop since I started my no-red-meat diet. Instead, I chose their Veggie Burger. The menu book does not really state what kind of patty they used, so I assumed that, it would be just like any other vegetable patty. I was wrong! Assuming is never good. The patty is basically just seasoned rice shaped like a patty. Perhaps, when the restaurant named it “Veggie Burger”, the vegetable part must refer to the lettuce, tomato and onion that come with the burger. Was I disappointed? Heck, yeah! It was all carb! A rice patty in a bun, that’s what it was to me. At the price of about ten bucks, it is not what I expected. But anyway, this does not stop me from dining there though. The other foods are too good to pass. Lesson learned – when in doubt, ask.

I recently came into this restaurant by accident on a recent cold day looking to warm up. Boy did I, I had the best chili I have had since TEXAS. Good flavors, hot and very spicy. I decided to stop back in on Sunday afternoon cause they advertised breakfast all day. I've heard this before only to find an egg sandwich served after 11, but to my delight at 2 in the afternoon I got a full breakfast. I had a 3 egg omelet filled with veggies and cheese, a large helping of potatoes and two patties of sausage. The FREE included mimosa was a nice surprise. My friend decided on the half pound black and blue burger that was cooked perfectly medium rare, something she has found hard to find at most restaurants. Both of our meals were delicious and the atmosphere relaxing and unhurried. Excellent food and service Hard to beat we will be back!!!!!
