My husband and I were out for a drive and I actually chose Big Chief for lunch. I apologized to him afterwards for the crappy pick. The food was definitely only "okay", but even if it was amazing I couldn't get past how filthy the place was. I'm not kidding... it's all kinds of dirty in there. The white ceiling... More

I see great reviews for this place but I don't understand why. The place is dirty, staff not overly friendly and the prices are steep for what you're getting. Granted the burgs are made with lean ground meat but there is no great flavor. Looking at the bill a few days later we were also overcharged. I think the reason... More

Wow. It looks like we didn't give you the best impression during your visit to The Chief. We're very disappointed to hear that. We're a small, independent restaurant that, unlike most of the chain restaurants, we really care and strive to exceed your expectations. All the things you mentioned are areas where we pride ourselves on. I'm very fortunate to... More

I eat here at least once a week the burgers are so good. The fish sandwich is all white fish.If you are a big eater try the large marge if you dare. This place has one of the largest menu I have ever seen and it is all good.

What a great restaurant, why have I not gone here sooner. Ordered the triple XXX. You get a lot of food for your dollar. Food quality, service and attitude was AAA+++ . I will be coming back here again.

We go there every Sunday for lunch and I get the "Chopper" every week-2 pattys with lettuce onion tomato-perfect and satisfying-can order sides like onion rings or fries and I love their cole slaw! Everyone in Wallaceburg loves this place!

We were in southwestern Ontario and made a side trip to the Big Chief to see for ourselves how good the food was. We were pleasantly surprized and really glad we stopped in. The burgers were great and the fries and onion rings were top shelf too. We split a chocolate milkshake and it brought back memories of soda fountain... More
