We stayed at a hotel near this Big Boy and looked forward to eating breakfast there before touring the Air Force Museum. The management allowed food to remain too long on the breakfast buffet, and didn't replace food after it had been eaten. Rock hard biscuits, cold bacon, etc. The manager seemed receptive to comments, but wouldn't discount our bill... More

When I returned to OH, I hadn't been to a Big Boy in over 30 year. This one was conveniently located and the staff were friendly. The food was reasonable priced. However, my turkeyburger sandwich was falling apart and wasn't all that good. While I would return, this is one menu item I would avoid.

Frisch's restaurant is a hometown classic. The food is always fresh and delicious. The salad and soup bar are well worth the money spent.

The restaurant is 1/4 mile from my hotel, which is why I chose it. Service was excellent and everyone was really nice and friendly. I had the seafood platter. The shrimp were awesome, the fish and fries were really good. The salad was pretty weak--just iceberg lettuce with some carrots, 2 grape tomatoes, and 2 slices of cucumber. I knew... More

We went to this restaurant one night for dessert. The service was friendly and good, except that the staff kept offering us meals besides just dessert.

Some of our food was OK but me and my daughters onion rings were so burnt, we couldn't even eat them. But we did have great service.

It's essentially like a higher quality grade of McDonalds. The Big Boy sandwich? Yeah. It's a Big Mac.

The breakfast buffet here is one of the best I have eaten. Evey item on the buffet is fresh and very tasty. There aremany different kinds of meat from bacon,sausage,ham,and chicken nuggets. Three different styles of potatoes and many more items too numerous to list. All of this for only $8. The staff is very friendly helpful and the restaurant... More

I live in AR and we do not have the Frisch's Big Boy sandwich here, so we travel every year to visit family and I can eat a Big Boy for every meal. I addicted!
