LOVE coming To BJ's for lunch!!! My favorite is Brocoli and cheese soup served on bread. The BBQ ribs are yummi with thin French fries and baked potato.

Looking for a location that closed late since we couldn't eat dinner early... Just the right place, a little busy, slow service but good choices of food. Had a few new drinks to relax for the night, cucumber jalapeno margarita was good!
