Yep, it's a burger joint, but it's one of the best you'll ever visit--partly because you get to build your burger yourself. Order at the counter, fill your cup at the fountain, and wait--not long! When your order number is called, you can go to the condiments counter and load up on lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickles, and a variety of... More

I loved the burger I had- a quarter pound of tasty BEEF. But I can not rate this place any more than two because of the noise and lack of cleanliness. The noise is a very loud (in a small eating area) drink machine. It is ridiculous! There were not enough staff to het the sticky tables cleaned with a... More

If you want a great burger, this is your place. Cooked the way you want it. You get to put your own topping on(lettuce,tomato,onion,etc). But what's a great burger without great fries or onion rings, take your pick. "It's all good"

Fine dining? Sorry, no. But for a burger-and-fries joint, it's tough to do much better than Big Chico Burger. The model is simple: Walk in the door and you're at the order counter. Check out the standard menu, posted above the counter, or look at the standing easel for the specials, then place your order. Pay and accept your soda... More

What makes this place great is making the burger the way you want. It has a delicious bun, and the fries are crisp. I come here several times a month for lunch. It would have had an excellent rating, except for their sodas and water taste really bad.

Big Chico Burger makes a good hamburger. They've adopted the same process as the local Burger Hut, which is to order the burger, they cook it and then give it back to you to put on condiments, then you give it back to them and they wrap it and hand it to you either to go or to eat. Good... More

I am Gluten Free so I usually eat my burger without a bun. They put my burger in a lettuce wrap. It was a concept they got! So when I eat a burger...I get right to the protein source and let me tell you...that's a good burger! I like the condiment bar. You can customize the burger they way YOU... More
