BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse is a growing chain of brewpubs, now found in 10 states. This suburban location — in the Tanforan Shopping Center adjacent to San Bruno BART — serves their own beers and offers a full bar, restaurant and many TVs. A kids’ menu and happy hour make this a popular family shopping detour.
Extras: Nearby is a little island of history in the parking lot, featuring an old statue of the great horse Sea Biscuit, who raced here when Tanforan was a premier thoroughbred track.

Map to BJs
Walking from BART: From the BART station, exit towards the garage and the Tanforan Shopping Center. You’re essentially there! If a closed chain link gate blocks the shortest way, just head the right around the shiny round police building. Enter the shopping mall, where you’ll find a map of the stores. Go to the upper level, head past the JC Penny’s to BJ’s restaurant near the far entrance on the other side of the mall. (Note that the “upper level” is ground level on that side of Tanforan. BJs has a large visible silo (tall grain tank) out front on the parking lot indicating it’s a brewhouse, should you walk around outside of the mall.)
