Been a long time since I've been to Big Johns. Kinda mad it's been that long. Roll was fresh and soft. Taste was great. Will be more frequent going forward.

I frequent the one in Grand Blanc. If I want a steak and onion sub, I go here, not Subway, as the subway steak subs are very wimpy compared to this place. Their steak and onion subs will not leave you hungry! VERY generous portions on the bun. I recommend the super sub with mushrooms and yellow banana peppers. Yummy.

They only make a couple of things and they do it well. Very consistent quality and service. This location has always provided fast service and good food. I wish they had a drive through.

You can't say you visited Flint, MI until you've had a sub from Big John's. Melt in your mouth good. You'll be hooked after just one visit.

The Big John Steak and onion sandwich is legendary and unique to the Flint area. See my review in the Burton, Mi. restaurants for more details. See the photo to get your hunger cravings started... and go... have one of these, they are sooooo good!
