We have ordered from them 3 times for big party's and they are the best. Chicken, cole slaw, potatoes and ribs are the best and at a reasonable price. Would recommend and I do recommend this place to everyone.

Really good chicken and fish - never overcooked. We take out from this place all the time. Reasonably priced.

Everyone raved about the catered food at my daughter's Graduation Party and we told them it was from Big Joe's in Shelby Township. The chicken, ribs, Italian sausage, Cod, and pulled pork were perfect! Add that to the yummy coleslaw, potato salad, Broasted potatoes, and...More
