“Fries and Gravy, Oh my!”
Reviewed 12 November 2012

Love the fries and gravy.
Have yet to try the Pizza Burger... someday.
Had the Big Boy Original once - eh. Nothing special. The chicken is the way to go. Yum!
The family chicken pack is a great deal. 12 pieces of chicken, pound of fries and pint of gravy, two salads, 6 dinner rolls, and 6 pack of pop for $27. The salads are actually quite tasty. We got macaroni and potato salad. Usually I have pretty low expectations for salads like those, I was pleasantly surprised when they weren't mayo overload! They were good!
We had more then 12 pieces too, several extra wings, I guess since they are small?
Also I have heard the shakes are really tasty there too, someday will have to get a pizza burger and a shake.
Even when the line is long it moves pretty quickly!

“always a good stop”
Reviewed 1 September 2012

The food portions are large and the drinks are too small. You will never go hungry stopping here for a meal. The drive through style is a treat and a fun change of pace.

“Hometown favorite”
Reviewed 5 August 2012

They have great food. Fries & gravy are awesome along with the flying style pizza burger. Worth a stop if you love pizza burgers.

“Best Pizza Burgers....EVER!”
Reviewed 10 July 2012

I've been going to the Big Boy for about 40 years. Pizza Burger Flying Style, French Fries, Gravy and a Hot 'n Tot....perfect lunch or dinner! And, yes, there is always a line, but I think the line moves faster than at Burger King and the food is so much better! Their pepper poppers are pretty good, too.

“its fast food”
Reviewed 22 June 2012

This place is always busy, but it is greasy fast food. You get large portions loaded with fat. The taste is okay. Be prepared to wait in line as it is a drive through. Be careful of the railroad if you are in a long line. The train runs frequently through town. The price is reasonable. I'm just not crazy about fast food. Fries are soggy and gravy is terrible.
