Healty + tasty

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... read more

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.

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

This time I ordered an amazing salad with fresh greens, sliced fresh pears, Gorgonzola cheese,walnuts tossed in a raspberry dressing...I loved it ! My husband ordered a... More

I got the Mediterranean Chicken Plate. Yummy. Lots of thin sliced bite-sized chicken in a slightly spicy tomato sauce w/ raisins. Every bite from beginning to end was wonderful. The entree comes with the best hummus I've ever had. I had the Moroccan Mint tea. Fabulous. I wish I lived near the restaurant. I'd eat there frequently.

Big Fresh is a restaurant that gives you very healthy food for a very cheap price. When you get the fish, you won't believe how good it is. Love the Falafel balls!

We dug out between snowstorms and decided to eat out before food shopping. The cafe is small and cozy. You order at the register (there are a number of signs saying ORDER HERE) and pay then. We sat down and our food arrived at the counter shortly thereafter. I had the spicy peanut noodle stir-fry with chicken (other options are... More
