This Moms Favorite App: Dine In Order Ahead

“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

I think every mom, including me, loves to go out to a restaurant and have the night off from cooking! But sometimes those crowds and long waiting times can be discouraging. I know when we have to wait for a table, my little man can get pretty whinny. No mom wants to listen to that while you’re starving!

Don’t worry moms, I discovered a way to avoid the waiting and whining game! BJ’s Restaurant is exactly what you are looking for to making eating out fun again. They have a new mobile app available for both the iPhone and Andriod that are super easy to use and will save you tons of time!

How do I know this? Because I tried the app out last week! First thing I did was download the app to my iPhone then I selected our local restaurant. I then clicked on the Order Ahead Dine In – Take Out Image.

It couldn’t be easier to use, really! Want to see what we ordered? Great! Cause I love looking at good food, don’t you? Once we were seated our waitress came over, greeted us and confirmed our order. Our food started arriving beginning with my husband’s bowl of Broccoli Cheese Soup.

Let me tell you, this soup was amazing and I was soooo jealous that I didn’t order it myself. My husband was already half way through before I quickly snagged a picture. To be fair, my honey shared with me. He’s sweet like that! 🙂

Next they brought out the salads. I got a garden salad while hubby got a Caesar. Both were great!

After the salads it was time to enjoy our main course. I ordered a yummy turkey club with avocado.

Chris ordered a Top Sirloin with a baked potato and all the fixings. He loved every bite!

When it comes to the best meal at the table, I think my son was the winner with his Mini Cheeseburgers and Smiley Fries!

Aren’t those fries the cutest? My little man thought so!

Once our meals were finished it was time for the dessert of all desserts! That’s right, the Pizookie!

After we enjoyed ever last bite of that sweet treat, it was time to pay the bill. And guess what? There’s an app for that as well!

I just logged back into the app and clicked on “Mobile Pay“. From there I entered my credit card information, adjust the tip with the easy slider and then signed my signature in the sign square. One little tap on the confirm button and the bill was paid and we were on our way!

I can’t wait to go back to BJ’s Restaurant and use this app again, everyone had a good time. Plus there never was time for that whining. And that’s a win/win in my book!


  1. Wow that is amazing! I have never seen something like this before, very convenient! I love that you were able to pay your bill via the app too! I need to see if there is a restaurant in my area! Your son looks super happy with his smiley fries, he’s too cute! Thank you so much for sharing this!

  2. Wow! What a cool app! I hate having to wait in line and having to wait for the bill when you are wanting to leave. This looks totally painless. Definitely going to have to try this and that cookie looks amazing!
