Excellent Quick Lunch

I have stopped at Big A;s on several occasions for a quick lunch in St Charles. It is convenient to the courthouse, and also to the touristy business district with many small shops and interesting sites. The Sicilian is my favorite-hot bacon dressing!- but the menu has several excellent... read more

Bought a groupon thinking I was getting a dinner deal and both times I went to use it they couldn't seat me in non-smoking section they said it was reserved. All two tables in the back! The smoke in there is so thick you could cut it with a knife. No thanks! My Groupon expired trying to get a non... More

I really liked dining here most of the time. For the most part, the food is good and reasonably priced. However the last time I dined here with my daughter, I ordered a sandwich and told them to actually keep the lettuce, tomato, pickles, and even the bread. Ok well I hate to take it and waste because I don't... More

Probably the best Hamburger in St Charles County! Quaint, historic building in the most beautiful historical area. Fantastic ambiance.

I really hate to draw too much attention to Big A's because it is kind of a local joint not geared toward drawing in the day-trippers on south Main St. That said, my wife and I eat here at least once a week. It is the go to lunch for out of town guests. Located on the north end of... More

One must realize this is a bar that allows cigarette smoking. We did know this before we went even though we usually don't patronize places like that as we don't like to be around the smoke. They do offer the tall typical bar type tables as well as traditional tables, and they do have a room 'in the back' that... More

Go to this place quite often and always go with the intention of trying something different. Once I get there I check out the menu and still go with the burger. Great choice! Big and juicy and those waffles fries are the best.

We've been several times and never a complaint about their food. Their pizza pockets are amazing-and last for a few leftover meals they are so big. Draft beer can be a little iffy-but if you stay with bottles or cocktails you should be good to go.

Happy hour apps at 1/2 price. What a deal with great taste and no skimping on quantity. Back room is smoke free which is a bonus.
