BJ Willy’s is one of the newest, locally-owned and operated restaurants in West Linn, Oregon. This cozy, casual pizza kitchen offers a variety of menu selections where woodfired is the main focus.
If the taste and consistency of woodfired pizza is your thing, BJ Willy’s offers excellent menu options. The pizza crust is thin, slightly charred, and crispy yet still a bit chewy at the same time. The toppings are varied, fresh and many are locally purchased, adding to the overall freshness and flavor. Pizza choices vary from the traditional to the unusual, including Traditional Margherita, the hot and spicy Fire Pie, or the comforting Mac-N-Cheese Pizza.
If you have your own specialty in mind, you can create your own woodfired pizza masterpiece fresh from the brick oven. Or if pizza isn’t your thing at all, BJ Willy’s also serves salads, burgers, sandwiches and a vareity of pasta dishes.
Great for Kids
Kids are a regular part of the atmosphere at BJ Willy’s. Children of all ages can order from their own special menu, as well as take part in making their own woodfired pizzas. The staff at BJ Willy’s bring out pizza dough for kids to sculpt or flatten and then top with their own preferred toppings. After the pizza is baked, each child gets to eat his or her own creation. You and your kids can also hang out at the counter by the pizza oven to watch the action unfold.
A Local Hangout
BJ Willy’s is a an ideal hangout whether you’re meeting to talk over business or gathering with friends and family for dinner. The dining room offers cozy tables for groups of different sizes, while the bar is the perfect place to meet with buddies and watch the big game on several flat-screen TVs and reasonably priced woodfired pizza made the way you want it.
Both early and late-night Happy hour sessions are offered with discounted drinks, such as margaritas for $3.50. A selection of appetizers make for inexpensive appetizers with friends or as a cheap dinner on the way home from work – a couple of my personal favorites include the fish taco with grilled halibut for only $2.99, or try their special Woodfired Portabello Mushroom, the flavor of which I’ve been unable to match anywhere and happens to combine perfectly with a chilled microbrew.
BJ Willy’s offers the best way to get together with friends and family in a variety of circumstances, but always with great food, drinks and service.
