It was 1978 when two guys who had a great recipe for deep dish pizza opened the first BJâ€™s Chicago Pizzeria in Santa Ana, California. The pizza was .. read morean immediate hit and as years went by, new BJâ€™s restaurants were opened in beach cities along Southern Californiaâ€™s coastline. In 1996, with seven restaurants in operation from San Diego to Los Angeles, the first BJâ€™s brewery began production in our new restaurant in Brea, California. The introduction of fine handcrafted beer was welcomed by guests and the newly renamed BJâ€™s Restaurant & Brewery concept was launched. New menu items and new beers have been added through the years as the BJâ€™s brand has expanded across the U.S.
Our passionate desire to provide extraordinary value for our guests in a high-energy, fun, child-friendly environment, along with a sincere commitment to support the communities in which we do business goes to the heart of what differentiates BJâ€™s from other restaurants. It is because of you, our guests, that we have been able to realize a dream and create the company and culture that thrives today. Thank you for being the biggest, and most important, part of what keeps our dreams alive!
