BJ's Best in Town

If you’re tired of the consistent whining in the back seat, “Let’s go to McDonald. I wanna go to McDonalds,” a new family-friendly restaurant has recently opened in Norman, Oklahoma. BJ’s Restaurant and Brewery is known for its high-energy environment, comfortable interior, and well-priced (yet tasty) dishes. This restaurant is a fantastic dining experience for the entire family.
BJ’s first opened in California in 1978 as a Chicago pizzeria. Since then, it has popped up in many other locations, including Texas, Arizona, and Colorado. The restaurant is now a new attraction in Oklahoma, opening in Norman May 8th 2007.
If your kids are still whining for McDonalds after eating at BJ’s, maybe you should get them a Cat scan. BJ’s is known for its deep-dish pizzas, which are unique only to this restaurant. They serve amazing hamburgers and pastas, as well as something they call “knife and fork sandwiches.” This isn’t really a clever name. It just means there’s too much gravy to eat it by hand. Heart attack? Maybe. To die for? Yes.
However, more than the food, BJ’s is a great place to get a cold beer, not for the kids of course. BJ’s started brewing its own beer ten years ago and now has an award-winning taste. If you’re not sure what kind you like, a price-worthy sampler is available in thirst-quenching proportions. And for the kids when they start whining all over again about not having a cold one of their own, BJ’s provides their homemade Root beer served in a chilled glass.
Something has to be said for BJ’s décor. Maybe that’s not how you judge a restaurant, but maybe you’re the type that likes staring at clowns and dancing hamburgers. If not, BJ’s provides a very modern and relaxing atmosphere. The booths have high-back seating with lots of legroom, and the walls are decked in jazzy art. The rich browns and greens are a welcomed substitute for primary colors.
All in all, BJ’s is a great restaurant experience. The price is on par with Chili’s and Applebee’s, but the taste is much better. It’s a great place to take a date or just relax with your family and eat a good American meal.

a rough birthday party

BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse is one of the newest and most popular restaurants in Norman, OK. It opened May 10, 2007 and is located between Lindsey St. and Main St. off of I-35.

It is a branch of the original BJ’s Chicago Pizzeria born in Santa Ana, California that has exploded across the nation in the last ten years. Since the opening in Norman, the company has opened another store in Oklahoma City, Tampa, FL, and McAllen, Texas and five new restaurants opening by Winter 2007.

Granted a party of nine is a bit of a struggle for even the more proficient waiters, letting a table sit for fifteen minutes without drinks is unacceptable and going thirty minutes without taking any orders is outrageous. Another thirty minutes was spent biting nails to subdue hunger until the food arrived. Within ten minutes, two pizzas, three chicken pastas, two sandwiches, a bowl of soup, an order of bruchetta, and a cup of spinach and artichoke dip had been devoured, though it would take another twenty just to get paid out.

On the up side, the food is impeccable and the décor is unique. The first sight is the back wall. It is the bar and an enormous set of shelves lined with every kind of liquor imaginable with an immaculate television right in the middle. Across from the bar, floor to ceiling windows give a beautiful view of I-35 and Main St. At the base of the windows, large plush circular booths accommodate two to six guests, and at the top of the windows, four flat screen televisions are placed evenly to give every table a view of the game.

With nine guests, trying several of the items on the menu was easy, and there is no doubt that everyone could find something that meets his or her tastes. Make sure to try one of their handcrafted beers and the famous pizookie.

Gotta Love BJ's

BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse located in Norman, Oklahoma has created quite a reputation for itself after only a few months of being in operation. The restaurant opened May 8, 2007, and is already the talk of the city. Although BJ’s is a chain restaurant located all over the United States, there is something about the Norman location that is makes it so unique and special when compared to other models.

The BJ’s model in Norman is really the 2010 model for future restaurants. The structure, atmosphere, and even the uniforms are far more swank and superior than that of all other BJ’s locations. It seems that Norman was the testing ground for this new model, and has all since proven to have triumphed greatly among the Normanites.

BJ’s originally opened in 1978 in Santa Ana, California. Back then, the menu only consisted of the famous deep dish pizza. After great success, more restaurants began to open along California’s coastline, and it was decided that the menu needed to be expanded. The idea of adding a brewery came along with the restaurant in Brea, California, and was gladly welcomed by guests everywhere. BJ’s now brewed their own beer, served mouth-watering Chicago-style pizza, and had quite a lengthy menu. Soon after, BJ’s began to spread all over the United States. BJ’s extended their network when they paired up with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and created the Cookies 4 Kids program. Anytime the well-known Pizookie dessert is ordered, a deep pan cookie topped with ice cream, 50% of the earnings are automatically transferred into a fund specifically set up for the foundation.

BJ’s in Norman was built off of Ed Noble Parkway where Don Pablos used to be located. The restaurant strip is fairly competitive, but nothing beat the rush that BJ’s had. On many summer nights, the estimated wait time would be anywhere from forty minutes to an hour. At neighboring restaurants, such as Charleston’s, empty tables seemed to be an immediate concern. No matter what, people simply wanted to wait for however long just to eat at BJ’s. Of course with every new restaurant there is usually an opening rush that lasts about a month, but BJ’s has managed to obtain faithful customers that keep coming back for more.

Immediately after entering the revolving door, one is greeted with that “BJ’s smile” and a nice warm “Welcome to BJ’s!” The BJ’s employees are dressed in black uniforms from head to toe to add to the clean and posh atmosphere. The seating system uses new technology through computers and scouting devices that allow hostesses to see when a table is either clear or dirty to provide for immediate available seating. Nothing is ever manually done. After being seated, the hostess politely informs the guest of the award-winning handcrafted beers, brewed from lightest to darkest. There on out, the dining experience is nothing but enjoyable. It is no wonder why BJ’s is so popular and people keep coming back for more.

BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse is designed for satisfaction in meeting a customer’s every need. They have truly thought of everything. BJ’s is a child-friendly environment. It stays open until 11 p.m. on the week nights and midnight on the weekends. Although it is a family atmosphere, the bar area stays open until 1 a.m. every night. BJ’s is an all-around amazing restaurant that is highly recommended to anyone and everyone.
