As good as the other locations

The food is awesome. The portions are large, so one does not leave feeling hungry. The staff are friendly, caring, and accommodating.Parking is free and spots are plentiful.This review could be dittoed for any Big City Diner location. They have a good thing going and I am happy that they do.

Nice, casual dining on local as well as not-so-local dishes. Children are welcome and get to pick from the treasure chest upon leaving! Bonus!

Been here a couple times for dinner and each time our food and service were great. The first time we had sandwhiches and the stir fry. The latest visit we had a couple of their salads. All of them were super fresh and really tasty. We also shared the apple pie desert and it was very surprising. We expected your... More

Ginormous portions of good food. The place has really improved. The staff is accomodating (separate checks) & pleasant. Our party of 50 went for breakfast, food coming out was a bit slow but hot & perfectly done... Will be going again soon.

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
