BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse in McAllen, TX

I really wanted to like BJ’s in McAllen since it’s right down the road from my house, and the line at P.F. Chang’s is goddamn ridiculous.  The restaurant itself is nice enough with all the charm of your typical contemporary corporate owned American restaurant.  Think Applebee’s with better interior design.

I really wanted to like BJ’s in McAllen since it’s right down the road from my house, and the line at P.F. Chang’s is goddamn ridiculous.  The restaurant itself is nice enough with all the charm of your typical contemporary corporate owned American restaurant.  Think Applebee’s with better interior design.

The seating time was very reasonable, and the table service was good.  The food, however…sigh…

I went with the Grilled Burger Melt, and well, I’m really grasping for a more descriptive word, but mediocre isn’t harsh enough, and disaster is a bit much.  Let’s just say it resembled something I would throw together in the middle of the night.  Drunk.  And I don’t mean that in a good way.

One more thing.  The floor in the dining area will try to kill you.  It seems to be covered with a thin film of grease or cooking oil.  Maybe the janitor just used too much wax, but either way, you’ll want to wear non-slip industrial work shoes to avoid a potential trip to the hospital.  Sure, stiletto heels are sexy, but head injuries?  Not so much.  They might as well just replace it with ice and let the servers skate to your table.  It would be just as dangerous but far more awesome.

Overall, it wasn’t the worst dining experience I’ve suffered through.  I’ll probably give it another shot in the near future, but BJ’s has a lot of making up to do.
