PICK OF THE WEEK:
BJ'S RESTAURANT AND BREWHOUSE
5881 Centennial Center Blvd., 851-8050
Some menus are refined and delicate. BJ's is in a world of its own because whatever you want, you'll find it and probably change your mind several times while reading through its many customer-friendly pages. Half-pound hamburgers are Angus beef served with lettuce, tomatoes and pickles. Among the large salads are BJ's Cobb, Caesar (grilled chicken, Cajun shrimp or blackened salmon), seared ahi tuna and Thai chicken mango. The menu continues with large baked potatoes filled with grilled vegetables, grilled chicken pesto or chili and cheese, deep-dish pizzas, pasta, hot and cold sandwiches, soups and entrees featuring fish, chicken and steaks. The only dessert you need to know about is BJ's Famous Pizookie, the hot out-of-the-oven, deep-dish cookie with vanilla bean ice cream. Flavors are chocolate chunk, white chocolate macadamia nut, peanut butter or oatmeal raisin walnut. The Pizookie starts at $5.95. BJ's is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to midnight Friday, 10 a.m. to midnight Saturday and 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday.
