BJ’s is a casual eatery, known for their deep dish pizzas, their beers and their pizookie. The restaurant started in Santa Ana, California and now they have locations nationwide. Over the years, their menu expanded, and added things like sandwiches and even fish n chips. They even started serving weekend brunch.
I was craving fish n chips, and stopped by the Orange location, at the Outlets of Orange. Our server was bubbly, and started off with drinks.
I didn’t come for the famous pizzas because wanted the fish n chips, and I also knew we had to end our meal with a pizookie, a dessert that is a combination of a pizza and cookie (hence, pizookie).
The fish n chips were nice, hot and fresh, and their skinny fries (the width of a match stick) was so addicting. Some people may like “regular” fries like McDonalds or the thicker fries you would get in a traditional fish n chips, but I really liked the skinny fries.
After dinner, Karen and I decided to share the mini trio pizookie: 2 signature chocolate chips for each of us, and a monkey bread pizookie to share. The chocolate chip is their original pizookie, and it wasn’t until recently they added the monkey bread, which is a cinnamon bread (think cinnabun) without the icing.
Overall a good meal, and decent service. When we left, the place was packed and the line was out the door. Plenty of parking, and food was good, although I thought it was a bit pricey for what you get.
