Great food

The food was really good portions excellent. We were in a big group and each family paid for their own and when all was said and done they had added a bunch of extra drinks onto the bill. I would ask to see the bill before paying

They specialize with huge plates of food, which naturally has a higher cost attached. Authentic German food but of a average to good quality. If you wanted to take some friends out and have an unusual experience, with hefty plates of food, this is the place to go. I don't remember any lunch-time specials. When they say XXL....don't anticipate anything... More

We took our kids there just to say we've been to Big Emma's. The kids were thrilled with the size of the food, for 4 of us we all shared a whole burger (they had no problem with us sharing) and we still had a ton of food left over. The burgers tasted ok but nothing special, they had to... More

We went to Big Emma's with a group of friends for dinner. The service was good. The food was ok- it was what we consider mass produced food. The portions were big for what you got but the food was just ok. They have a strict rule of no sharing so there was a lot of left over food on... More

We went there so my son could get his "Schnitzel Fix" while in Germany for the weekend. The interior is OK and we were seated promptly. The staff was OK. The food portions were huge but not special. I'm German and there is way better German food out there! Seems that they cater mainly to the Americans in the area.... More

a lot of food for the money & worth going back. Better than good, it's very good, not great. Try it for yourself & you won't be disappointed. The chicken cordon blue is great!

We went here because the restaurant we wanted to go to for a burger was closed. Big mistake. The restaurant is fine and service is good.....but the burgers are a ridiculous size and poor quality. My guys were very disappointed and left most of their meal.

Work colleague took me here. All the food was exceptionally average. If you do go get the fried potatoes and skip the burger. Beer is cheap at least.
