Popular local diner with good, simple menu.

A popular local diner with basic diner menu that satisfies your search for something simple that's well prepared. The staff don't waste time with chit-chat or pomp & circumstance. A nice change from places that try too hard.

Have been to Big D's several times and the food is always great. The service is a tad slow but the place is usually packed so they're just doing the best they can. We come back for the great food and casual atmosphere.

Their food is always consistently amazing! Their one dark haired waitress is very nice, but the others just seem miserable. We go weekly though, the food is just to die for

We enjoyed the food here for 5 days straight. We kept trying to go other places but be kept saying to ourselves why? We ate other meals at other places all week, but breakfast we ate here. Everything is great. One caveat, most of the staff were as you'd expect, good all the way around, with one exception. There was... More

Any restaurant that bakes their own bread is a winner in my book. Chef Big Ds club sandwich. It's Diners Drive inns and Dives moment! !
