I just came back from lunch at Big Boy. I have eaten there for years every few months. The last couple of visits were mediocre, but this one is just about the one where I am convinced to be done! I ordered a double cheeseburger...More

If you love onion rings this is the place to go. Their big boy burgers and tenderloins are good as well. They have a good size menu and the prices are reasonable. The atomsphere is lacking, but the food is awesome.
