    My favorite TJ's in the bay. Always in stock in the riced cauliflower, rarely a mob scene.

    The people who work here are nice. TJ's in general is not my favorite store concept. Prices are excellent. Love the peanut butter stuffed pretzels. Parking though is a nightmare at this location.

    Lines are so long! Don't go on a Sunday. Produce and bread doesn't last long. Everything else canned or packaged has a much longer shelf life.

    Parking can be a pain, easier to come in from the back and park up top. Very long lines but moves quickly. Mind the basket only line.

    Never attempt a Saturday or Sunday afternoon if you don't want to completely lose your mind trying to park

    RACER 5 6PK $9 Drake's Denogginizer $6 12oz cheap beer, small food selection but it helps you focus and actually shop for meals instead of having cereal and no milk once you get home. Busiest 6-9pm

    Regardless of what time of day it is you may run into a line. Tip contact corporate and ask for an express line or head to Emeryville.

    Crazy long line moves fast, great employees. If you need to split orders,be careful, sometimes even with sorting, and checking off items,they manage to mix them together.

    They have some of the best bottled h2O - perfect for long road trips or head showers on summer days.

    Don't come here between 1pm and 2pm. The checkers go to lunch and the lines are so slow they wind down the wine aisle.

    This location's checkout lines are so empty on Thursday mid-morning between 10am til 1130am. It is a good time to shop without the wait.
