Traveling east and wanted to get thru Lexington before stopping to eat or fuel. (Rush hour). I have eaten before at Frisch's and always found good food. I was short on time and needed quick service. Frisch's Big Boy met that requirement. I had the buffet, which was a salad bar and breakfast food on the evening I visited. It... More

Having moved from KY 20 yrs ago, I was looking forward to visiting Frisch's. This one in Winchester was terrible. Sunday night. Hardly any customers there. Still, service was really poor. Fries were cold (on 3 of our plates). Mac and cheese and the mashed potatoes both tasted like they were days old and were reheated over and over. My... More

They had the best soup and sandwich. They were super nice and even gave us a to go box. The waitress really met our needs and told us to stay as long as we wanted. My sister had a vegetable soup which was just as good.

Big Boy Restaurants were one of my haunts in the late 1960s and early 1970s, as I traveled during my Coast Guard enlistments. I visited the Big Boy in Winchester KY on my way to Charlotte NC. The iconic Big Boy statue was near the entrance. The interior had an art deco vibe. The walls and carpets were clean. I... More

I usually only go during breakfast. I like the buffet. They have eggs, bacon, sausage, ham, biscuits and gravy, hash browns pancakes, fruit and other stuff as well. Service is always good when I go. Employees always seem nice

Love coming here, the waitress knows us from our many visitss and is always making sure everything is the way we want it. They have a great breakfast bar and you can order off the menu for lunch during breakfast hours, you are treating upon entering and asked about you experience upon leaving.

The food is not what it used to be. I do love the fresh salad bar and breakfast, but dinner isn't much to talk about.

Where to begin? After one server yelled across the restaurant that he'd be right there to seat us, another server came immediately and seated us. It was a bit awkward. A waitress came by our table and told us she would be waiting on us, and would be back to get our order. After a bit, ANOTHER waitress came to... More
