Good local business with healthy food

Have eaten here several times. Great falafel, stir fry, sandwiches. Nice local, healthy alternative to all of the chains and fast food.

Nice, smaller restaurant with friendly and informal atmosphere. Good selection of salads, stir fry and other dishes. The Caesar salad was large and well done. The Thai chicken curry was tasty. Four different flavors of ice tea to sample before the meal. The food was ready in a fairly short time and the price was reasonable. Definitely a good value

This is one of the local favorites. Fresh food, good location, and it is not expensive. It will definitely fill you up.

Big Fresh has good food, but they skimp on the meat. When ordering a rice dish, you have to go fishing for the protein. A bit pricey for what they offer, since it is mostly vegetarian.

Very casual--bring the whole family. Healthy freshly made food items that are really tasty and good for you. Huge salads. My favorite is the falafel. They make it fresh and it's huge--I generally eat it with a fork as it's too big to pick up and eat. What I like about it is the small, freshly made falafels. Crunchy and... More

This is such a healthy, refreshing alternative to fast food! At Big Fresh, you get healthy food -- fast. Try the chicken plate with the tahini. Utterly delicious. The salads are big and fresh, and the lentil soup is to die for -- not the usual added sodium. Such a wonderful place.

If you are looking for a leisurely lunch or dinner this is not the place for you. But if you want a good quick made-to-order lunch or dinner Big Fresh is definitely worth it. It's great for take out. I've tried a few menu items including a vegetable stir-fry with noodles (you can also get it over rice) and a... More
