This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and BJ’s Restaurants, but all my opinions are my own. #DineInOrderAhead #pmedia http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV
Sometimes going out to eat with a family of 5 isn’t all that enjoyable. You have to get ready to go, find a place that everyone agrees on, get to the restaurant, wait for a table, wait to order, wait for your food, wait for the check to come…you get the point. We’ve recently found a couple shortcuts at one of our favorite restaurants and I can’t wait to share them with you.
My family decided to take my husband to our nearest BJ’s Restaurant for Father’s Day. BJ’s is one of those restaurants that we all agree on no matter what because there are so many different thing to choose from there so no matter what you’re in the mood for, they have it. Plus, my husband LOVES getting a Jeremiah Red or Nutty Brewnette beer there (he’s already married to a nutty brunette so it’s fitting!)
BJ’s restaurant has recently added some great features to their mobile app. (You can download the BJ’s Mobile App to your iPhone or Android). Before we even left our house, I downloaded and installed the app on my Android phone. I wanted to give the Dine in Order Ahead feature a try and see what it was like. All four of us (oldest son didn’t go) were able to order our food right on my phone, within a matter of minutes, place the order and then head out to the van to head over to BJ’s. I loved that even with picky orders, you can customize whatever you’re ordering. I don’t like tomatoes, so I was able to order my sandwich without them. I ordered everything, even down to the drinks & my husband’s beer. You just simply place your order, tell them how many people will be in your party and what time you plan on getting there. Your spot on their waitlist is held and all you have to do when you get there is tell them you used the Dine in Order Ahead feature, they will seat you and the kitchen will start working on your meal. Easy as that!
There’s another part of the app that is probably my favorite part & it’s the Mobile Pay feature! After we ate our food, had a fantastic Pizookie and were ready to go, I simply pulled out my phone again, opened the BJ’s Mobile App and was able to pay my bill right then & there! No having to wait for the waiter or waitress to walk over with the check, wait for them to come back for it and my card, wait for them to come back with it & then sign it. It took me less than 2 minutes to finish the whole thing. Plus, there is a little sliding bar for the tip portion and tells you the percentage and how much it will be. I mean, cause after all that yummy food, beer & Pizookie, we don’t need no stinkin’ math, right?!
So, head on over and download the BJ’s Restaurant app for yourself (iPhone or Android) and save time by using the Dine in Order Ahead feature, the Preferred Waitlist feature & the Mobile Pay feature. Do yourself a favor and order a Pizookie while you’re there too. I hear the Salted Caramel one is delicious! I have to go back there & try it for myself!
