“Good Southern Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014 via mobile

The Rig is good for basic Southern food. Breakfast is really good. I judge a diner by the gravy and biscuits. Both are above average here. Most items are made from scratch in house. You may get lumpy mashed potatoes. Prices are good. Daily dinner specials are a great value since they come with 3 sides, bread and desert.

“Good Food, Good Coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

we stopped in here for breakfast while staying nearby at Highland Fish Camp - plenty of good food, generous portions, and great coffee. We liked it so much the first trip that we came back here for breakfast the next day too!

“Truck Driver's Heaven”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Just leave the rig somewhere else! Small restaurant, small parking lot, not easy to see at first. Prices are great. Depending on how busy they are, service can be slow or extremely good. Food is pedestrian but HUGE portions! A few outside tables. They do things like liver and onions that you basically cannot get anywhere else. oh, and if you think the regular menu has large portions, try the daily specials. Good heavens!

“Our new "spot"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014 via mobile

We are new in town and have tried a few of the local eateries. Stopped into the Big Rig on a Sunday around 1:30 pm. It was busy with just one 2 top left, seats still warm from the previous patron. We ordered a Reuben and a cheeseburger club. Both sandwiches were really very good and the French fries were perfectly crispy and browned. The cole slaw was exactly how I like it, creamy and not too sweet. The iced tea was authentic southern style and our server offered us "one for the road". A nice touch. We saw lots of yummy looking orders going out while we were there and vowed to return for a dinner type meal. My husband has been back twice (while I was at work) and raved about the cheeseburger and country fried steak. We have fallen in love with DeLand, and now have our new "main spot" for good home cooking for a fair price!

“24 hours of Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

Open 24 hours coffee to full dinners
Daily specials. Can be very busy at times. But worth the wait.
Expect a take-home container. Portions are huge!
