BJ’s Brewery- Temple, Texas

Basil & Sausage Pizza

So I’m hanging in Temple, Texas for the next few months at my new client. The town has a ton of chain restaurants: Chilli’s, IHOP, Cracker Barrel, Olive Garden, etc. BJ’s is a chain, and I had never been to one before. They have a menu that is almost as large as Cheesecake Factory, and they have a list of lunch specials. They have a full pizza menu, but we’ll save that for another day.

I ordered the flatbread & salad combo and was pleased with the size. I had the fresh basil with italian sausage pizza, but I think I only found 2 or three bits of sausage throughout. That was interesting. Otherwise, it was a very healthy dish, not a lot of cheese, and the crust was crunchy on the edges and floppy in the middle. I don’t LOVE their flatbread, but I love the price & healthy feeling I had when I finished. I wasn’t full after the meal, but I resisted ordering a mini pizookie, which is a dangerously awesome dessert. Overall, the flatbread/salad combo at BJs is fine, but don’t expect to be wowed by it.


Small portions... doable for lunch but may leave you hungry after

Service is not the best with parties larger than six, but otherwise, I think you’re safe!
