This location is average as far as a restaurant is concerned. It was clean and had decent speed of service. Value average but love when they have the $5 Big Boy and fries deal. They always have a monthly deal deal which is nice.

We stopped with our family just passing through. It was fast friendly service, but the food was eh. My burger was delicious, but the salad bar was lacking.

I ordered the Buffalo bites, assuming they would be buffalo chicken strips, per the picture that is next to the item. What I got was diced chicken covered in Buffalo sauce.... the waitress just shrugged, and said "well that's how they come." Then why is there a picture of Buffalo chicken strips next to the item?!? Manager, basically said the... More

Our server was very attentive. She catered to all of our needs with a big smile, making this a very enjoyable visit. I tried the BLT Prime Time Burger and my husband had the salad bar. This was one of the best burgers I've had for a very reasonable price. The salad bar was extensive, even including a nice array... More

Worst experience ever. First of all, it is not a real Big Boy. Secondly, a man who was dirty and looked like the janitor, took our drink orders. The potato soup was nasty and so thick, we ate it with a fork. Lastly, our waitress, took our order, didn't come back, and 35 minutes later, we never received our food.... More

We visit Frisch's regularly. The restaurant use to be located on S. Main when I was in high school, but now on N. Main. As a kid it was my favorite place to get a burger and it still is. With my Big Boy I also like their cole slaw and onion rings and don't forget the hot fudge cake... More

Horribly inefficient waiter. Made multiple trips to the table that could have been reduced in some type of multi tasking. Bathroom was sticky, smelled like urine & had no soap. Food was easily the worst I've ever had. The place as a whole is filthy & outdated. I would never ever eat here again.
