Big G's is a very good place to eat! Unless you have a big appetite order a half sandwich because they really mean they are BIG! But so worth the money spent!

My husband introduced me to this place and ever since whenever we make a trip to Maine we make it a point to go their once for breakfast and once for lunch or dinner. I've travelled to many different countries and tried lots of different foods. This is hands down my favorite sandwich place. One thing I love about this... More

I visit Big G's Deli everytime I come to Maine. The sandwiches here are always fresh, big, and delicious. The staff is friendly as well. For a real treat, try one of their home made whoopie pies!

I was warned to only order a half sandwich as we came there with a group. Being someone who loves to eat extra, I ordered the whole. I saw others walking away with a full sandwich and I thought, "I can do this," I also ordered some fries. This thing was Huge at half the size. A half sandwich could... More

From the outside this place looks generic except for the long line. We went on a late Sunday afternoon. Thought is was gonna be slow. Wrong. The sandwiches were huge and the meat portions is something they don't skimp on. The fresh homemade bread was awesome. The handcut fries were out of this world. I am looking forward to my... More

One of my go-to places in the Waterville area for breakfast or lunch. HUGE sandwiches, many named for local and national celebrities. Most people order half a sandwich, which is plenty big. Whole sandwiches are about the size of your head. Breakfast features similarly large omelets. Homemade cookies and whoopee pies can be shared with the entire family. Prices are... More

If you want a great meal, big portion size and easy on the wallet I would suggest a stop at Big G's. The food is great and depending on the time of day there can be a line out the door. Very clean establishment for the cafeteria style service. I know next time I am in the area I will... More
