Unique, love it

Have been here many times over many years. It's sort of a cross between a diner, deli and greasy spoon, all in great ways. Great tasting food and huge portions. Worth the trip.

Words can express, come with a big appetite because the portions are crazy big and the 1/2 size. It's worth the trip. I had heard but never been, wish I room after my gluten free wrap to enjoy one of their whoopie pies.

You won't find another place like Big G's. About 10 minutes off the highway but not a place you would find just by pulling off, this place has tons of seating and HUGE portions of Everything. Unique sandwiches and typical fair but home cooking for sure.

They have any kind of sandwich you can imagine plus other foods. Their muffins are fantastic. Nothing fancy but good.

The atmosphere is casual but this restaurant is big on size of portion. I kid you not! One sandwich is equal to four! Oh, and the bread is homemade. NICE!

We are regular patrons of this restaurant when in the Waterville area, and the fried haddock (in a great tasting batter) is outstanding! It looked like we had an entire half of a fish (huge one!) that covered the large "basket" it came in. And the fries?? Wow...so many of them, and good too! The basket dinners, by the way,... More

If a sandwich is ordered hot, but delivered warm, it isn't being ordered in a self-respecting sandwich shop. A deli is a restaurant which can deliver a hot sandwich. Big G's is not a deli.

As the name would suggest everything is bigger at Big G'S!! The sandwich I got was enough for 2 huge meals, the flavor was great and the price was great. One thing to note they do not take credit or debit cards but do have an ATM inside.

If you live anywhere in the area you have most likely eaten at Big G's. I've only had one person I know say that they didn't like the place and it was because they though the sandwiches were too big! Over the years they have expanded their menu greatly but thankfully have not strayed from what they have become famous... More

Big G is the pace to be in Winslow. HUGE sandwiches. I had the BLT, which came on a small tray, and filled it. Excellent . I made the wrong choice in getting untoasted white bread, but the food was good, cheap, and fast.
