I love this place! There are so many choices. I am always torn between the chicken paniolo salad and the Big Burger. The garlic fries are AWESOME! So is the sorbet and the bread pudding!! And the staff is always nice.

This is our favorite place to eat. The staff is always courteous and upbeat. They make our visit great. Manager usually makes his rounds to see how customers are doing. That makes this restaurant special. Thanks Big City Diner staff!

So my family and I went here last night and had a pretty good dinner. If you haven't been here before, don't let the fact that it's called a diner make you turn the other way. Everything from a burger to the catch of the day (red snapper) was delicious. The service was excellent and the food came fast. My... More

Need comfort food? Look no further. This restaurant has it all. Great salads, burgers, meatloaf, hamburger steak, chili, and a great variety of beers on tap. The service was exceptional and the manager came around to check up. Inside was a little to crowded and noisy but outside seating was perfect. Give it a try if in the area.

This place has average food in good quantities at a reasonable price. It is noisy. However, I ordered my omelet "very soft", which to me means a little runny on the inside. It came solidly cooked. I sent it back, and the waitress was very polite and apologetic. An omelet came back, still cooked solid. Oh well. With enough Tabasco,... More

I treated my childhood friend to lunch and she picked this place. I had never heard of it before this...at the door we were greeted and seated quickly. The place was busy with weekday lunch crowd and we sat indoors as it had been raining off and on all morning. Our waitress was fantastic; friendly and so helpful, made us... More

Tried to get in with a large group on the night before the fourth of July at nine pm. The place wasn't crowded at all, but we were told by the manager Kim that they close at 10 pm and that it would be "close" whatever that means. So one of our moms mentioned Zippy's and the "not so skinny"... More

Stay home, save your money. The nasty breakfast specials are expensive and tasteless. A thin small overcooked porkchop resting on a tiny dried out buscuit then drowned on brown gravy is not worth $10. My companion's meal was unremarkable too.

If you don't mind a loud dining experience then this will exceed your expectations. You can sit at the bar or wait to be seated inside or out. We chose inside. The kitchen was open to the dining room. I wasn't expecting much as in the quality of the food but you felt welcome when you came in and the... More

We went there for lunch and it wasn't busy at all. My fiance ordered a sandwich combo and I ordered the nachos since the portion is big. The portions are I think were the only thing that was good about that place. When our food came his was fine, but my nachos were cold and the chips were kinda stale.... More
