Good value and home cooking.

The Somerset Bigboy is like going back into the past when burgers and fries were the meal of choice. The salad bar is very inviting and comfort food entrees are very good. Prices are reasonable and service is good.

The BBQ pork and cole slaw sandwich is a great choice. The hook and ladder can go either way. They have one of the most technology enhanced coke machines on the planet, unlimited refills.

Its OK if your in the mode for a big boy burger. The staff that waited on us was friendly. We did see a few of the other staff have a heated disagreement in front of us and other guest.

The soup and salad bar were OK but not anything to brag about. The waitress was rude and when I paid my bill I was barely acknowledged. I had some time to kill and went back to get out of the heat and ordered the Fire and Ice Cheesecake. It was amazing! Service was good, a different waitress!

Stopped in for lunch. Salad bar was very minimal; burger was pretty good. But for what it cost me for a burger, fries and the salad bar, I could've had a much better meal elsewhere. I won't be going back.

Food was hot. The bar was well stocked. The only thing wrong was the donut holes and muffins were stale.

I grew up on Frisch's in Ohio. When ever I am in this area, I grab a little of my past by stopping by for some of the vegetable soup and a salad with Frisch's thousand island dressing (and sometimes a sandwich). The food here is always good but the conditions are definitely going downhill. I put out four soup... More

The staff were horrible. Our server was busing tables, playing hostess, cashier, and cook. They need to hire more staff so the good staff can do their jobs.

Even the pictures on the menu do not look appetizing. The food was less than stellar. The salad bar had wilted lettuce. Our waitress was rude as were two other waitresses that we asked questions of.

You can't beat a Big Boy sandwich for old fashioned drive-in taste! Love the haystack potatoes...bacon, cheese, ranch...mercy!
