I came here hesitantly due to reviews. I'm glad I came. The staff is super friendly. The food came out extremely hot and fresh and tasted great!

Typical BB but the twist here is the staff. With a go out of their way to help attitude and a heart-warming smile along with an old-style charm, these people make your meal experience more than you'd usually get at a BB.

A typical big boy resturant. Good food. Good service. Reasonable prices. Knew what an "Ohio" big boy was in Michigan.
