Big G's has been a staple in this area for years. Always a great value and as most of these reviews will vouch for the enormous size of the portions. It's not just volume on a plate but they strive to give you a quality meal. The sandwiches are as imaginative as they are delicious. If you're in the area,... More

This is a must stop if you are in the area of Winslow Maine. Though you may be thinking it is just a deli, stop right there. This is no ordinary deli, this is a superhero deli. I ordered the "Miles Standwich," which is like Thanksgiving Day wrapped up in a sandwich. The half order provided me with two meals.... More

I grew up since the 80's in Winslow and moved in 2003...lived at Big G's...while food prices have gone up our family of 4A and a infant was $40 OUCH! But it was still worth it and I was excited to bring my family there. The lady with the black short hair has TO GO! She was rude and short... More

Listen people. The other reviews are not kidding. The portions are larger than you can imagine. One sandwich makes 2+ regular sized ones and the french toast and pancakes are equally huge. At least the eggs are normal sized. The prices are more than reasonable. The wait is never very long for your food. Walk in, look over the menu... More

Excellent food. Prices are very reasonable. Portions are huge. My wife and I shared a sandwich and the buffalo chicken mac and cheese and had a lot left over. If you are in the mood for a sandwich this is a "don't miss."

I'm a former Waterville resident and was (and still am, when I'm in town) a frequent diner at Big G's. In fact, I went there before they relocated to Benton Avenue. Through it all, I've been impressed with their selections. The food is tasty and plentiful but certainly not cheap...not even economical. Their whoopee pies look great, but sometimes "big"... More

Yes, everything at Big G's is BIG! Breakfast, lunch and dessert including their Whoopie Pies as big as your head. If you've never been, it's a Winslow must. You won't leave hungry. Casual dining and family friendly. Lots of food, lots of choices. We go to Big G's every year on our annual fall trip. Try it, you'll like it.... More

I visited Big G's for the first time last week and had an overall pleasant visit. Their sandwiches are excellent and the serving sizes are awesome. I would recommend only getting 1/2 of a sandwich because that is the regular size to a normal person. The one thing I did not like was the service. It is similar to a... More

The reviews saying the portions are huge are not kidding. You really only need a 1/2 a sandwich, and many people will only be able to eat 1/2 of a 1/2! If you are looking for fine dining, this is not the place. If you are looking for a good sandwich (hot or cold), this is the place for you.... More
