If you go, I would recommend the buffet only. And I would check it first just to make sure you want to commit!! On our last trip we ordered chicken strips and fries. It took forever and I'm not sure what kind of chicken strips finally came out, but they definitely were not good! They did take it off our... More

I wish I could give B.J.'s an above-average rating but, in all honesty, "average" is not that bad for a small Tennessee town with limited choices for eating out. Actually, B.J.'s is the only place in town that offers a variety of fresh cooked vegetables and they serve some really good fried chicken. Let's face it: the atmosphere could be... More

Stopped here for lunch between Georgia and Illinois. My wife and I both had the buffet. The food was hot and very tasty...with a nice variety. Don't understand the negative reviews. The service was good and people were very friendly. Would definitely stop there again.

My husband and I stopped for dinner. While this restaurant did not have a gluten free menu, I did appreciate the waitress' honesty. I ordered a country ham breakfast and my husband had the stuffed green peppers and fried chicken from the buffet. Our meals were very tasty, reasonably priced and ample portions.

There's an old saying that you can a lot about a restaurant by their fried chicken. This fried chicken was Stellar!!! The variety of food on the buffet was impressive. The ham was wonderful. The staff was the absolute best! The sweet tea was excellent as was everything I had. I highly recommend this place. They get high praise from... More

We stopped for a late breakfast on our way home from Nashville. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but you can't miss it. Hard to back out onto the highway as there seems to be lots of traffic. Dinner buffet was already out and looked really good, but we wanted breakfast and ordered from the menu. Plenty items to... More

Had been to a funeral nearby and family decided to lunch in Pleasant View before parting ways. I'd not been happy w/the choice having been here before but THIS DAY WAS A MIND CHANGER. BJ has always been low on decor and ambiance; the water heater is obstacle just inside the door to the ladies room, dark and narrow space;... More

Not terrible but definitely not good. Cold greasy food on buffet. Not real friendly staff. Could be good if they tried harder.

If you don't want fast food on your road trip, this is one of few choices. So my review is based in that context. It's a hole in the wall with nice people. Adjust your expectations and enjoy the yummy country food.

This restaurant is disgusting! Many years ago when it first opened as, BJ's, it was decent. We would have dinner here at least once a week for several years. Eventually we stopped going because the menu never changed and the same items were always on the buffet. We got tired of the same thing. A few years later we went... More
