My brother, his girlfriend, my husband and I went there for Veteran's Day. It was very busy and they don't take reservation. You may call the moring of the day you are going and get placed on a "wait list". We were seated immediately. They have an extensive menu, and we all had something different. My husband and I both...

We have dined at BJs for a number of years; probably at least 4 times a year. We have eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner and never been disappointed. Servings are very generous and the BBQ meats are outstanding. They do a great job on eggs Benedict. We are always excited when we are in the vicinity so we can enjoy... More

Enjoyed this restaurant so much the first time that I went back the next day also. The sweet potato crunch is the best I've ever had! Also loved the cornbread and pulled pork! The service was good and it has a cute ambiance. I will definitely return next time I'm in Nevada!

OMG we had to enter via the bar and not into the restaurant. Up to a shoulder high counter with a snotty little boy behind it who inquired if we were members of their rewards club. We aren't as we'd just decided to try this one out. So no, we aren't and he goes, "well then it'll be a few... More

We know BBQ because we are from NC. It's was ok. Dry, Luke warm . Not much smoked taste to the pork and The turkey sandwich wasn't smiley at all. Sides were pretty bland. Best thing we got was the onion rings.

Went to BJ's for supper this week, they were out of potatoes...a main dish on their menu!!! Ordered the Mac n Cheese for the first time, why cooks have to ruin things is beyond me, there was a spice in it (why?) that was totally disgusting. Several people at the table tasted it and all agreed so it wasn't just... More

The food is always great and the service is always friendly. We get the Barbecue feast and it's enough to feed four people. This is one of our "to go" places.

Had lunch here while staying in Sparks. Kick-A** fries, what more is there to say. Home cut fries with skin on covered in very tasty pulled pork with medium sauce. Huge portion, you need help eating this mountain. My friend had the BBQ potato and it was smashed down on the plate buried under a pile of pulled pork. You... More

Good service and atmosphere backs up great food. Had the ribs which were first class. Large servings. Coleslaw and beans also good.
