I was driving by the Winrock Center yesterday when I seen a banner for BJ's! Long story short they will be opening there doors sometime this fall. This is such an awesome addition to the Albuquerque uptown area. BJ's has one of the best selections of beer you'll find anywhere, there food/pizza is second to none. Very good news.

Hmmm..another chain. A look at their website shows they have a fairly uninspired menu and boast of 8 handcrafted beers plus a few more on tap. Granted, I'm not in Albuquerque this week but last night I was at a local establishment that has100 beers on tap. THAT impressed. Think we' ll pass on BJ's ( unfortunate name ) in favor of supporting locallly ownex Nexus.

WOW! And the negativity rolls on, Guess what people, Albuquerque is not a small town and progress will not be stopped. I can't figure out what is with all the resistance to all these new places opening up in Albuquerque. BJ's is awesome, BJs is always a dependable place for good food, good beer, and relaxed vibe. If you love pizza, I recommend the Hawaiian pizza (pineapple, ham, cheese).

Nobody is complaining about stopping progress... It's the type of progress...

They aren't New Mexico...

The chain of BJís Restaurants, a California business opened in 1978 and currently has over 100 restaurants. William H. Tilley a major stock holder who currently holds about 63.5 million dollars worth of stock (NASDAQ: BJRI). The company is currently based out of Huntington Beach, California.

I hope they do well here and also help the New Mexico economy...

I've been to a couple BJ's and here's my take:

Food ain't bad for chain food. Their house beers are average (not sucky, not great), but they usually have an really good bottle list.

I've been to three BJ's in other cities when traveling for business (and I didn't get to pick the restaurant!). They're fine corporate chain restaurants. The beer is acceptable, the food is nice and bland and portions large. In short, pretty much what you'd expect from a chain brew pub. I personally won't plan to frequent the Albuquerque BJ's... but who knows... it could be a perfect fit for others in the city.

I'd put BJ's house brew selection slightly above Nexus in variety and taste.

However, in my opinion, neither place competes in La Cumbre/Marble/Il Vicino's class for top local brews.
