If you want a change of pace from the original steak & onion sub, try the Philly Chicken. Make SURE you ask them to grill the onions with the chicken - its the only way to eat this sub. It is amazing, and I really like that they offer wheat buns as well as white. This location is pretty straight... More

If you want to become addicted to something delicious, try Big John's. Their steak and cheese sandwich tastes like you're in Philly. Absolutely delicious and addicting. You can't stop going back!

The sandwiches are awesome here. You can choose a 6", 8", or 16". The 8" is a perfect size. You can choose to have hot peppers on the sandwich or on the side and their steak sauce is great too.

We are lucky to have a Big Johns in the area. The steak sandwiches are great and unique. I have friends in Florida that make me bring them sandwiches from here. It is a must try.

I love their steak and onion subs, but they have breakfast subs too. Walk up to the counter or drive through and order. You take a tray to the table and can eat in or take home. Food is fast and hot and good.

Big Johns in Owosso is definitely my favorite place to eat. Everything on their menu is good and not that expensive. I never get tired of eating there. The employees are always friendly and helpful especially the Manager, Janine Good, who goes out of her way to make sure your food is the best. Gary C Owosso
