I've been coming into Big Poppa's for a while now and have never had a bad experience. Everything I have tried is amazing. The selection is unique and very reasonably priced for the value. I love coming here for the sense of community and fun as well. Definitely a treasure. Kudos to Big Poppa and Sheila!

I am from Cincinnati, but now I live out of state. Every time I come home, my sister and I plan a day in Milford and the highlight is having lunch at Big Poppas. We tried the Nightclub Wrap and that has been our standard. It's large enough to split and both have very generous portions - the chipotle mayo... More

Get there before 9am to get the Baked French Toast Casserole. I had my mind set on this delicious sounding morsel... However by the time we got there after 9:30 am they were sold out... Clean! You have been warned! LOL Very friendly, down-to-earth staff. Sensing my disappointment at missing the French Toast casserole the chef (and I assume owner)... More

My sister & I first found Big Poppa's a couple of years ago - and we are so happy that we did! She lives out of town, but when she's here it is one of the "musts" on her list of things to do. The service is great - they are so friendly! And Sheila remembers us, even though we... More

we ate lunch today. When we entered we were "directed" to a small table in a row of small tables set for 2 each. We I ask if we could sit at a specific table with 4 chairs I was quickly refused even though there was no one else in the cafe. If a party of 4 had come in... More

I am very sorry you had a bad experience at our restaurant. That being said, our restaurant is very small (9 tables) and we ask people to be respectful of others and chose a table that best suits the number of people in their party. You were not asked to seat yourself as you so graciously did, and you had... More

This is where ya go for quick bites and quirky atmosphere. Expect to have personable service, craft quality food at drive thru combo meal prices and hear some great music. The dogs are tremendous. the salads are the size of the park a block away. This is a tiny joint. NO FRYER! So don't expect fries with your delicious sandwiches.... More

Whenever I have guests from out of town, I'll take them here for breakfast or lunch. The prices are reasonable, the menu is a nice variation from the usual items, and we're always welcomed as returning friends.

Ordered the Dean Martin. Mozzarella, tomato, pesto -one of my favorites. The Dean came with a very soggy bottom. Too wet to pick up. My friends sandwich was the same.

I am very sorry you were disappointed. I wish you would have let my wife or I know you were not happy. We would have done something to make it right. If you would decide to give us another chance, please let me know who you are and your meal will be on us. Again, I am sorry you left... More

I have been to Big Poppa's two more times since my original review. I LOVE this place. Not only is the food made fresh, but the owners are soooo nice. Sheila makes it a point to remember your name and drink. She also makes sure you are happy with your selection. Today, I had the Miles Davis - chicken salad.... More
