My husband and I have eated at the Big Stop before. The food has always been average, what you would expect from a truck stop but very generous. This time the portions have been reduced and not very tasty.
I had the special and it did come with loads of turkey, It was not very moist and the gravy was just warm.
My husband ordered the hot hamburger platter. The two very small patties that came were obviously meant to go on a bun. They were dry and even the gravy couldn't rescue them. I really don't think we would return.

Ordered Greek salad as offered on the menu. Came as a greek salad, but the waitress apologized that there was no Greek dressing, had to have zesty Italian.
Otherwise the service and food was good. In fact our waitress anticipated our needs for water and coffee refills before we had to ask. The turkey club was actually a chicken breast, but was very good.The Rueben sandwich was good.

We have not been to Irving Big Stop in Pembroke for years. We decided to try the Friday all you can eat fish and chips. The service staff are fantastic, the coleslaw is wonderful but the fish and chips, well that is another story. Both the fish and chips are tasteless. They seem to be just frozen and the reheated. The taste can not be compared to Joeys Only in Pembroke and Westsides Fish and Chips in Huntsville or For The Halibut Fish & Chips in Bancroft. The service staff is very attentive and bring extra fish quickly. It will some time before we return. The other items on the menu look attractive but we have not tried any other items.

You must go out of your way to eat at any Irving restaurant anywhere you can find one! The food is the best and so is the quantity. All the truckers eat here which says everything.You must try the pies!

Good home-cooked style food like hot turkey sandwiches, hamburgers, mashed potatoes, and pie. Nothing fancy but a decent meal at a decent price.
