Good food for a good price. One of the best Big Boy I have ever visited. Very friendly staff. Good variety of food and drink selections.

We stopped for dinner because JR's was closed. Usually, I like Big Boy. This one was horrible. The service was slow, the food was barely edible, and the garlic bread came complete with bugs toasted into it. After we left, my husband said the couple seated next to us had complained about their meal...probably they didn't like the bugs either.

Although the staff was very friendly the restaurant is in great need of repair and updating. From dirt and grime to old artwork, including coloring pages that look like they've been taped to the wall for decades. It's time for some tidying up folks. Don't, no matter how many fond memories you have of it, order the cheesy broccoli soup.... More

This is a place that we stop with some friends before heading for home after a long race weekend. Service was efficient if a little on the slow side. This time ordered off the menu rather than the usual buffet. Can be a bit on the pricey side.

It took three minutes for someone to seat is (it wasn't that busy), five minutes for our server to take our order, and our server was seen reading the newspaper instead of paying attention to her customers. The food was good but the service has room for improvement.

It had been quite some time since I had been here, as my last visit was long and chaotic. Whatever went wrong last time was fixed on the visit. We ordered out food and received it within 10 to 15 minutes, not 45+ like the last visit! I ordered the endless pasta with spaghetti and marinara sauce. It was good,... More

Super salad bar on weekends it's incredible and there just aren't many around anymore . Fresh and a huge variety. This Big Boy is typically packed because they have a good reputation .
