“Wonderful food here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 December 2012

This is just a drive-thru restaurant, no indoor seating, but is always a busy place and well worth the wait! I personally recommend the flying style pizza burger, Hot N Tot, and their fries and homemade gravy is delicious!! If you get to Bismarck you need to give this hometown restaurant a try. I know people who have to stop every time they come to town :)

“Fries and Gravy, Oh my!”
4 of 5 bubbles 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”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.

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