These guys make the best sandwiches! They are consistent and you get the same awesomeness every single you come here. Chicken Philly, regular Philly, with or without peppers, mushrooms and/or pnions. Something for everyone!

This steak and onion sandwich is the best I've ever eaten. The combination of seasoning, onions and thinly sliced steak give this sub a unique flavor. Service is quick and the price is reasonable. This is a must try if you're new to the Flint, MI area.

Big John's is always a good place to get a steak and onion sandwich at. They also have Ruben sandwiches, turkey sandwiches. This is a fast food place, but it's always a clean andn friendly place to eat.

Been eating here since I was a kid. Whenever someone comes "home" for a visit they always request that we go here. Delicious!

I was working in town and this was suggested for lunch. I had never eaten here before so just let a friend order for me. It was very good. The red sauce was tangy and spicy. The only thing I would change would be more pepper rings. It only came with a small cup of about four. Overall if I... More

We watch this crew prepare our fresh made philly chicken or steak, onion and cheese sandwiches. We visit this Big John's at least once a week. Everyone is quick and friendly. I love the red sauce.
