We stopped here on Saturday late morning to try their breakfast buffet. They were out of bacon, pancakes, biscuits on the buffet and the gravy and cheese was barely there, gunky and inedible. I had to go to the counter to find a waitress and asked for serving utensils for the salad dressings. The wait staff was either standing around... More

My wife and I stopped for an ice cream sundae and a chocolate malt on a Sunday evening in March. Not exactly a high ice cream demand season. We noticed as we parked all kinds of staff out back smoking. We parked, walked in and no workers were present to seat us or could we find someone helping the few... More

Since we no longer have any big boys in my area (NE Ind) I have to come up here for my ice cream cake and strawberry pie fixes but I get other things too. I have never noticed it dirty or bad and everything I've gotten was good.

It was late, and we were hungry. What else but a few favorites - Slim Jim, a BLT, and a great Milk Shake to wash it all down. Perfect.Thank you Big Boy's!

We travel a lot through the state, and often times will swing by Big Boy as the GF and I both enjoy the Slim Gem. That said, this is easily one of the dirtiest places we have come across in a spell. Everything from the restaurant to staff was bad. The food also was not presentable as it was just... More

We are staying in town for the night and saw Big Boy, usually always having a positive experience at Big Boy we tried this one. Wow, never again. The bright spot was the host who was very friendly, but we were seated and waited for 10+ mins and we never even had a busser offer to get us drinks nor... More

Stopped for lunch about 12:30 on Sunday. Wasn't busy. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. Salad and soup bar available with four soups. Not large salad bar but nice variety. Salad bar was $9.99 which is expensive for the offerings. It looked fresh, tho. Had the Irish burger. Enjoyed that and the fries. We also had the bacon laden BBLT,... More

This place is horrible. Out of things. Dirty. Horrible food. Expensive. Toilet broken in woman's bathroom, no heat in woman's bathroom. Men's room was disgusting. I will never give them another dime.

We try not to eat here, never been a real clean atmosphere. We gave it another try last summer, first time in 10+ years, and still yucky, will not be returning.
