BJ's Restaurant


I spend all school year looking forward to summer. My husband is a teacher so he is home with the kids and I all summer long and we have a lot of fun.  I also tend to way over schedule us for the summer because I’m so excited to have free time.  Suddenly, we don’t have free time anymore.  This past week is the perfect example.  I had the kids scheduled for a VBS in the mornings and then various activities in the afternoon.  I found myself working all morning only to realize that I wasn’t going to have time to make lunch before picking up the kids.  This was the perfect opportunity to try out BJ’s Restaurant’s new Dine In Order Ahead App.

BJ's Restaurant

The BJ’s Restaurant Dine In Order Ahead app is a convenient way to go out to eat with less hassle.  You can order your food via the app before you even leave the house.  Your name is put on the wait list immediately, cutting down on wait times.   I ordered our entire lunch before I even left the house to go pick up the kids.  I scheduled our arrival time to let BJ’s Restaurant to know when to expect us.

BJs Centennial

Once we arrived at the restaurant we only waited for about 5 minutes before being seated.

BJs app order

Our order was put in a glass on our table so the waitress knew we had already ordered ahead on the app.   I forgot to order our drinks, though, so she took our order for those and brought them over while we waited for our food to arrive.  Our order was placed as soon as we were seated, cutting down on the wait time for our food to arrive.  Perfect for weekday lunch breaks or any time you are waiting with hungry kids.

BJ's Club Sandwich

Our food arrived and everyone dug on – they were hungry!  My husband ordered a chicken club sandwich and a salad.  I was able to order his choice of salad and sandwich on the app.  I also chose the style of fries he wanted.

BJ's salad

I ordered a barbecue chicken chopped salad and it was delicious!  I ordered the lunch portion and was able to make any adjustments to the salad I wanted right on the app when I ordered. I could change the dressing, the toppings and even leave special instructions. Don’t like onions? Just tell them to leave them off when you order on the app.


No trip to BJ’s Restaurant is complete without a Pizookie.  You can check your order on the app and I was fascinated to see that the order was timed.  Our Pizookie wasn’t baked and delivered until we had just completed our main courses. It was perfect timing.


BJ's RestaurantWhen we were winding down and finishing our meal, I went back to the app to pay our bill using Mobile Pay.  I was pleasantly surprised to find that we had received $5 off our order for using the app to order and pay!  I love getting a discount and I didn’t even ask for it.   It was automatically applied to our order.   I also love the Mobile Pay option. No more waiting for the bill – you just pay when you are ready to go.

BJ's Restaurant

BJ’s Restaurant Dine In Order Ahead and Mobile Pay apps certainly made feeding my family on a busy day full of summer activities easier.  Make sure to download the BJ’s Restaurant app and put it to use during your busy summer days.  The app is available for iPhones and Android.
