We ordered the Gobblin Gourmet sandwich and in the half size which was perfect for us to share. French fries were awesome and of course we bought a Big Whoopie Pie for dessert for tonight, tomorrow night and the next night. The whoopies are HUGE!

Big G's has long been a staple stop for my family when traveling through Waterville. Sandwiches are the main fare, although the fries and wings are also good. Watch out, the hot wings are VERY hot. The sandwiches all have clever names and are of a wide variety, all with fresh ingredients. Make sure to grab a bag of the... More

My family loves Big G's. One of our favorites is the Barack Obama: pulled pork, slaw, cheese and fries. My husband loves their grilled Reuben. Their chicken waffle sandwich is pretty tasty, too.

We went for breakfast. You order at the window and go get your food when it's done. I got an omelet that wasn't that good but everyone else at the table got eggs with bacon- I would do that another time. I don't eat bread but my husband said the toast had the yeasty taste of homemade and thought it... More

My family is in our cabin in the North woods of Maine every summer. We can't wait for a Big G's lunch date. The half sandwiches are hard to finish, so be sure to come hungry. It's hard to decide, as the menu is boundless, and the massive home made bread is so tempting. Choose a pre-named sandwich or make... More

First they do not take anything but cash. ATM at front door. Homemade hash is like potted meat soggy, ground fine and no taste. Eggs overcooked. Bread was old and fell apart when picked up. My thought is people like the amount of food you get but the quality of the food is not as important. All I can say... More

See above! Great portions! Tremendous variety! This is the most wonderful sideline sandwich restaurant I have ever been to. Had a Ruben that was as good as any New York Deli. Clean and very busy

Love their sandwiches (rather the half sandwiches). Even the half is enough for two meals. Always enjoy taking someone there for their first visit.
