This was our first order. The food arrived more than 90 minutes later, 10 minutes later than the promised time frame. Then the food wasn't even near as advertised. The Big Cheese burger was lack of tomato and onions, and the cheese was very small,...More

Used to visit often but the standard of food decreased, tasted as though the oil it was cooked in was not changed often enough

Usual fast food that you'd expect from Big John's. Fried Chicken, Burgers, pizza and fries. However, the quality of the food at this take away is far better than other Big John's outlets. The only downside is that it's Take Away Only,

Hi. I bought chicken meat and chips. Most of the chicken was like waste. Some really black ( not cooked wise) it was old chicken and also very hard pieces as well. Are you making donner in there or you get ready made from somewhere else ?
