I enjoy going to this BJ's...The wait staff is always friendly and funny and quick to correct any mistakes that they may have made. I am also a big fan of their enlightened entrees menu; it definitely takes the guilt out of having a mini pizookie for dessert. Their Thai Chicken Mango Salad is delicious (though I did have some awkwardly large lettuce leaves-which by the way, were not your standard iceberg lettuce), and their fried artichokes were so good too! Their oreo pizookie is my favorite, ala mode of course (see! the salad was necessary!!)-I like the oreo flavor because it's not too sweet and makes a delicious cookies and cream dessert. As far as beers, I am totally loving their Nutty Brewnette. Not because they named it after me, but because it's a great dark beer that is not super heavy. My only complaint is the parking, but it's not that big of a deal; most of the spots are on the side or behind the building, so if you're there when everyone else is, you will end up walking a little further.
Hidden out of the way, this is a really enjoyable place to dine: came for dumplings, got them, and on the recommendation of the waitstaff got an order of the beef pancakes.The dumplings are huge, about eight to an order: the chicken/mushrooms and the pork/string beans were amazing. The beef pancake (6 to an order) look like fried flat dumplings, very very juicy (wear a bib) and equally delicious.Service was friendly and no better/worse than other Asian restaurants serving predominantly Asian clientele.
This is my experience, my first time here: walked in for weekend lunch and seems to be about the only person here. My instinct was to walk out but the place was clean and waiter was friendly so I hung in there.I ordered the Parrillada Especial: special price today too. Think "fajitas" with beef, chicken, pork sausage and Asian-style ribs (with a huge side of delicious refried beans, rice, guacamole, and more) and tons of veggies. Dang it was all flavorful and delicious. Nice place.
Relaxing atmosphere, decor is modern yet comfortable, service is personable but not intrusive, prices are just right, and the food is DELICIOUS. Creative menu, great variety, portions are generous and includes items for kids. The owner is on-site and can make recommendations from the menu for your taste as well as from the ample wine selection. The Sunday Brunch menu has more selections. I am definitely going back!
Love this restaurant, I have eaten there 3 times and every time the food was excellent. I think the Pizza crust is the best in town. I wanted a pizza with a lot of special toppings, and it was no problem. The Pasta was very good, would give this restaurant 5 stars, food was great, great place for a date night.
