Good food great service

Waitstaff did a great job with the service food quality was just okay. Seems as though the meat was overcooked and paper thin. Maybe just a sign of the times.

Big boy is a semi fast food place. Food is comsistent across all locations. Tarter sauce makes the burger. Try dipping French fries in it for a change.

Good taste but they seem smaller and smaller every time I come back. Place was fast and nice on the outside but is not the Mainliner of my childhood.

Stopped in for breakfast on the drive through to Alabama. I ordered the Farmer's Omelet. I thought they had it ready and waiting it came so fast. The service was excellent and the food was very good, no complaints. I was actually pleasantly surprised because I don't expect much from the chain restaurants like this.

Famous for their Big Boy and Super Big Sandwiches. Also for dessert the Hot Fudge Cake. I got the super big boy and it was excellent. The hot fudge cake is a must for dessert.

I arrived in Cincinnati after traveling for hours with no food and was starved. Had a turkey sandwick from Frisch's ( with bacon!) and mayo. DELiCIOUS. Basic stuff but basic stuff that tasted very good
