The burgers at the Big L are some of the biggest, juiciest around. The price is right, too. Great value for a filling meal.

Had breakfast two times this week at the Big L. Food was hot and prepared as ordered but it took 45 min from the time we placed our order until the food arrived at the table both times we visited this restaurant. Plan on at least an hour for your meal when eating here.

Decor was really dated could use some updating. Breakfast was fantastic for the most part. Bathroom was clean. Service was pretty good. Would go there again for breakfast

Well, he digested well as I had expected and then was ready to take on the Oaks Open Pit BBQ for dinner later that evening. But he loved it and said it was a great value too!

I've been going to the Big L since I was a little girl, now I take my own children there!! They have good quality food at a low price in a warm & inviting atmosphere!! They're open for breakfast & lunch with an assortment of good food...everyone is satisfied & no one in the family leaves hungry!!
