Service tonight provided by a very friendly young lady surpassed any service that we've had that we can remember.

Out of all of the Big Boys I have been to, this is by far the best one. The service is faster, the owner is on top of things and will come around to see how things are going, and the staff comes around often to see if you need anything. Even when they are busy, which is often, they... More

A long time staple in the Detroit area. Nice colorful interior and a pleasant place to have a meal. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served. I was here for diner. The menu had a nice selection of items, including soups, salads, sandwiches, burgers and more. I went with the Slim Jim sandwich, still good after all these years. Good size... More

Now living a distance from here, it's fun to return & order again one of the first double decker burgers served. Good service, food & atmosphere. Nice stop for a quick meal.

We saw Big Boy and immediately wanted to stop there...it was kitschy and looked fun. I took a picture of my kids outside with the large "big boy" statue. Inside,... More

Not sure what the promo was but if you like sitting next to many booths full of screaming kids while eating very over priced fast food at a snails pace than this is your place.

This is a typical Big Boy restaurant. If you like the Big Boy chain of restaurants, (which I do), you will not be disappointed. The food is consistently good, the service good as well. Nothing to write home about, but that's true for most chain restaurants. Still, if you are in need of a slim jim or a slice of... More

New Big Boy built in a retro style with hip stainless walls and lighting. My family was treated well and service was fast. Stuck with the classics: Big Boy hamburger, Slim Jim, Onion Rings and Shakes. It was Fantastic! We had Strawberry Pie and their Hot Fudge Brownie Ice Cream for dessert. Awsome. This place is well run and spotless.... More

Local family restaurant that was franchised and very popular in the Detroit/SE Michigan region. They are usually quite full. Reasonable prices, good food. Nice hamburgers. Good coffee shop style place.
