Fantastic subs that are jam-packed with meat. Don't forget to ask them to put on banana peppers and sauce tho, or they may not put it on. They also have wheat buns, but you have to ask for that option.

Big Johns is a Genesee tradition and while not quite up to what it originally was it still is a quick good value meal.

Love the steak and onion with cheese and mushrooms. Top it off with the red sauce and you've got an awesome sandwich!

I worked at Big John's about 30 yrs ago. These steak and onion sandwiches aren't what they used to be. They are still good, but the meat is way overcooked because they cook it ahead and put it in a container, then cook it again to heat it up before it's put on the bun. I asked for cheese, but...
