    BJ's review in Orlando

    From the end of the review in the previous post:

    An interesting note about BJ's is that it is rumored to be one of the chain restaurants Darden is considering buying. I wonder if the shoddy consistency at this BJ's is meant to be throw Darden officals off the track. Or maybe it's a desperate cry for help.

    • Have you visited a BJ's? I've eaten numerous times at the Brea and Irvine location. My experience has been pretty good. I hope they fix the Orlando location. Sounds like it is pretty busy at that location as well. Some one must like it.

    • I don't think it was used to throw them off track, doesn't work that way. I did read somewhere that Darden was looking to purchase a restaurant with less than 100 units - Can't remember if it was in a Darden conference call or where I read or heard it. This would be an interesting fit into the Darden portfolio, would eventually make a nice market for Bj's beer in other restaurants owned by Darden - not that this is why they would purchase the company but would be an idea worth looking into. Has anyone else heard this? If not then it might not have been Darden, I don't want to start a rumor here....
