Had breakfast on sunday, at the same time they offered their buffet. Ordered eggs, Hasbrown and sausage links. Potatoes were cold and under cooked, Sausage was cold and raw inside. Eggs were so, so and the cold toast could break a windo

Stopped for a late supper. Our friendly server greeted us promptly and took our drink orders. The Buddy Boy sandwich (grilled ham & Swiss) was delicious. Couldn't pass up their famous hot fudge cake - vanilla ice cream sandwiched between two layers of chocolate cake, covered with fudge and topped with whipped cream and a cherry. Yum!

I often take my two 3 year olds to dinner here. We all love the food and the service is always good. The last two times I have eaten there we have had Sheyna as our waitress and she is awesome. I think I am going to start asking to be seated in her area when she is working.

We arrived 10 minutes before they were taking down the Breakfast Bar. Our waitress was very helpful advising us that they wouldn't be freshening it up in case that was what we wanted. We weren't there for it, but she was very courteous, helpful the whole time. The eggs & pancakes were good as usual.

Generally go there for breakfast. We like everything about it.....except the eggs. The scrambled eggs are terrible. Other than that, enjoyable.

We were driving through and saw the Big Boy, which reminded us of days gone by. We stopped for lunch. Had the salad bar. It was average. Nothing exciting. Had the cheeseburger and chocolate milkshake. Cheeseburger was average. The milkshake was wonderful! Very tasty and the only saving grace of the lunch.

A very clean restaurant. If you like a breakfast bar a lot of people likes this about Frishes. I like the Frishes Big Boy with sweet potato fries. My only complaint you have to ask every time to make sure your food is hot.

Just OK, nothing special. Hamburgers were very small. Chicken noodle soup was not good - too salty and bland (the crackers were the best part).
