Stopped in here for breakfast with family before heading back home. Food was average on bar, which was pretty empty when we got there, but they did fill it up after we went through the line. Everything was decent on the bar except the eggs. Need to get some real eggs for the bar.

They were very accommodating to our family after a funeral recently! Food was decent considering all the people we had!

It is what it is, you should know what to expect. The establishment is always clean and the staff friendly. Sometimes I think the value for you buck is lacking.

Quick way to get GOOD food for breakfast or lunch at the drive-thru. The staff members are always pleasant, both at the drive-through and inside for sit-down meals

I met my family there and ordered the salad bar. I found out afterwards that they no longer served cauliflower and didn't have eggs ready to put out. The chicken noodle soup was almost gone, or at least the noodles were gone. It was down to just broth. I asked to see if they would refill it soon and the... More

Whats' to say, I grew up on these Big Boy sandwiches and they have not changed in over 50 years. They are the best at what they serve.

We ate here our first night in town as it was recommended by the hotel across the street and was close. It turned out to be a poor choice. It's hard to imagine a place that charges for each item you order. You buy your sandwich, you buy your fries, you buy your drink. Total you pay what you would... More

We had breakfast, and it was average for a chain restaurant. Service was good ,but the food was nothing special.
