Stopped by here with father and wife after a hard trip to the cemetery. All the waitresses were great and didn't seem to care that they were working on a holiday. I've been going to Frischs for thirty years and it's always consistent and inexpensive. Love the place.

I went here with my boyfriend and when we received our plates we were surprised...the food looked like it was poorly made. I took one bite of my food and not another. My boyfriend only ate half of his plate before he had to stop. The food was absolutely tasteless, everything tasted as if it had came out of a... More

I wanted to introduce my kids to Big Boy, and was excited to see one near where we were visiting. We were seated quickly, and then sat for over 10 min with no one coming by our table. We left, and no one saw us leaving because there were no employees in sight. Maybe they were short-staffed, but it was... More

I visited the Big Boy for lunch yesterday. The restaurant was clean, the service was acceptable and the food was good. I had the cheeseburger with sides of green beans and mashed potatoes. Nothing fancy, just regular food.

Always try to hit a Big Boy when in the region. Overall was this Big Boy was solid average from the food to the service. However I feel this Big Boy wasn't up the standards of some of the other Big Boy's I have eaten at. Not bad just not as much of a must try as other Big Boy's.

Eat here so frequently. Tonite was a hit or miss. My food wasn't too good and toast was burned. Wish they would rinse their salad before serving it. You can smell and taste the chemical preservatives on it.

At a loss for a quick dinner tonight we opted for Frisch's Big Boy carryout. We haven't had a Big Boy burger in many years. It was OK but that was it. The fries were a bit greasy and limp. Oh, well. At least the service was quick and served our purpose tonight. Well, at least over the years Frisch's... More

Yummy Swiss Miss! We visited early in the morning before our tour at Mega Cavern. The food was good. They had a breakfast buffet too.
