Real onion rings

Had a cheese burger that was excellent and had a flame broiled taste. If they had jalapeños the burger would have been perfect. What I liked best wasvthe onion rings. They big rings of onion in a light cripy breading. They were cooked to a golden color and full of flavor.

Great place to stop for Gyro's hot dogs, burger and such. Quick service, excellent food, reasonable prices. Have been going here for a number of years. Restaurant is extremely clean which we appreciate! One of my favorites in the area for a quick lunch!

I first visited Big Sammy's because I had a coupon. The menu is unremarkable, as there are several other restaurants in the area with similar fare. The food is delicious, though, and the gyros come with a generous helping of meat. I usually get extra sauce and an extra pita and make two gyros out of the meal. I'm not... More

I would actually like give this a rating of Good rather than Average, but it's a stretch to give a rating of Very Good to a strip mall hot dog joint. They have a good variety of food and I have stopped in for takeout many times. I've never had a bad meal. I might give a rating of Very... More

In a bit of a hurry, give Big Sammy's a try. Very, very good food for a reasonable price. Wide variety, from Chicago dogs, beef, burgers...Big Sammy's has it all! Eat in or take it on the run. Not a bad thing to say about this place. Always a winner!

1st time at Sammys. Great prices on great Chicago food! Would chose this location on a return trip. Gyros and italian beefs were fabulous!

The Italian beef sandwich was generous in size, but lacking in taste. The roll appeared to be old, dipped in au jus, and fell apart when picked up. The beef was cold and very dry, with the side of fries that were soggie and barely cooked past blanching. Hotdogs appeared to be a better choice, with all the "Chicago" fixings... More

Whether it is a burger, hot dogs, or gyros; the food is excellent. I also love their onion rings as a side. My family orders often from this location and are always satisfied.

I love the variety that Big Sammy's menu offers. The original gyro and chicken alternative are always super delicious. Chicago style hotdogs, burgers, bbq beef and puller pork sandwiches, sausage/beef combo and pizza puff are just a few of the foods I get when I visit. The staff are always friendly and the place is very clean.

Walked in, viewed the menu on the wall and ordered a dog and fries. The only English I heard the entire time I was there was "WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE" the rest of my meal consisted of two employees behind the counter yucking it up in Spanish. As I tried to eat my hotdog I got a lesson on how... More
