BJ’s Restaurants is one of those places that we go to often because there really is something for everyone. There’s everything from pizza to pasta, burgers, sandwiches and so much more. The menu at BJ’s is ginormous and a little bit intimidating when you head there for your first time. But with a family of 5, that can never seem to agree on where to go to eat, it’s one of our favorites!
My husband and I were going to head over for a lunch date but our oldest son wasn’t feeling well that day so we took the 10 & 5 year old with us. When we got to BJ’s, we talked to our waitress about the new Big Poppa Smokers BBQ menu. It was just the second day of the new menu and she was really happy to hear I was a blogger writing about the food and was happy to answer all of our questions.
The first thing we ordered were the Jallelujah-spiced Fries (we got a coupon for a free order because we are members of their BJ’s Premier Rewards club where you earn points & can then redeem them for a free Pizookie, $10 off your check & more). These fries are their thin cut fries, which I already love, and are sprinkled with jalapeno salt, which I didn’t even know existed! They were a fun appetizer and my husband and I both loved them.
My husband & I ordered the same thing…for $5.95 we got the BJ’s BBQ Lunch Platter which included a pulled pork slider (which was bigger than I expected), a Jallelujah-spiced chicken breast, Jallelujah-spiced Fries (we asked for wedge cut fries since we already had the Jallelujah-spiced Fries as an appetizer) and coleslaw. You got to choose your sauce too and we decided to go with the Jeremiah Red BBQ sauce, which was so good!
My husband and I definitely want to go back and have the lunch platter again. We also want to head back and try the Baby Back Pork Ribs and the Corn Fritters with Bacon Aioli. Plus, there is a Summer Berry Cobbler that I just can’t wait to try. Take berries, add cobbler and that equals a little bit of Heaven.
The Big Poppa Smokers BBQ menu is available at all neighborhood BJ’s Restaurants (with the exception of Balboa, Laguna Beach, Belmont Shore, La Jolla, Westwood) until 9/2/13. Head on over to your BJ’s (find the nearest location HERE) and check out this yummy, mouth-watering menu!
