Don't get me wrong, I really like Big E's - I've never had a bad experience - but it's like the other reviewer said, just know what you're getting into. There are some perfectly lovely, very strange people there... That being said, you can't beat their breakfast sandwiches, especially with a little sriracha on top, there simply isn't any better hangover cure. Service is pretty slow, though.

The food is cheap, seriously cheap. My burger was nicely crisped and made to order. I ordered lettuce, tomato and onion and it had all of them, but in bizarrely huge chunks. Generally, you'd slice a vegetable so it might stay on the burger. These guys just throw roughly chopped veggies in the general direction of the sandwich. My iced mocha tasted like incredibly sweet chai instead of coffee. The miscues with the food may have been a fluke but, do NOT, under any circumstances, go to Big E's expecting to eat in the restaurant. Between the thick smoke hanging in the air, the 85+ ambient temp and the homeless people (or were they just really smelly art students?) the place couldn't have been less appealing.
