I have been visiting this Big Boy for several years and I would rate the quality of the food as good-typical of Big Boy selections-very affordable. They do have an excellent weekend buffet and make omelette's cooked to order. However, where they excel is their service- have had the same employees for years and all I have been served by... More

We stopped at this particular Big Boy restaurant for lunch on our way to Florida and were not disappointed. Our waitress, Paula, was genuinely friendly and helpful. The scrambled eggs, bacon, and hot cakes were tasty, ands pricing was quite reasonable.

I would say this is a great place to take the grand parents and small kids. Not really a social scene for teenagers.

Fifty plus years ago I took my girlfriends to Bobs Big Boy for their burgers, cherry cokes and shakes. I haven't found a place with these good burgers until this place. I stopped twice at the same one going north and coming south. So good.

The restaurant was busy, but the service was still efficient. Our meal was quite good as we opted for a lighter meal - grilled Buffalo Chicken Salad. It was quite good and we topped it off with a shared piece of delicious strawberry pie. It had been a long time since we ate at a Big Boy - and we... More

I haven't been to a big boy before but wanted to try it. The restaurant was busy which is a good sign to me. The prices were reasonable. The coffee is really good and I see you can buy some. The food is really good and had a great selection. The desserts are also excellent. Highly recommended.

got seated right away, noticed the Busboy right away, clearing the tables as soon as they were empied. His name was kyle. He even wiped down the salt & pepper shakers. Our waitress paula was also wonderful!!! the only thing we could find wrong was the bacon was just a bit over cooked,
