Do not get the breakfast buffet...ever.

It is a typical small town America pig slop food bar... Bacon and sausage dramatically undercooked... Eggs are dry, like pebbles and NOT tasty. Pancakes, french toast is always dry and barely edible. My server was very nice and apologetic but really could not help much... ... The coffee was ok........

Our local Big Boy was torn down and rebuilt. The new Big Boy is retro fun! Well lit (thank you!) with an upbeat staff and rely cute decor. We hadn't been to the BB in a long time but this new restaurant will change that.

There were 4 of us, each having a different meal. Our order was put in wrong and one in our party had to wait, but 2 or 3 staff came by to apologize.

All in all we had a great time. Their is a merchandise area for a bit if BB nostalgia. Of course we all had hot fudge ice cream cakes.

Great improvement and a fun time!

They have recently demolished the old Big Boy Restaurant and built a brand new one in almost the same location. The new Big Boy Restaurant is clean and has modern decor but is smaller than the previous restaurant. Parking in the parking lot is tight. It was noisy in the dining room because of the tile walls just outside the kitchen area. Fries seems to be thinner than they use to make them. All-in-all, we had a good experience. They even sell cute Big Boy T-shirts.

I know Momma always said if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.... but what is the point of a review? The place was not clean - water spots were on the ceilings, dusty, floors were dirty.... The food was the worst Big Boy food I have ever had. Big Boy is always a safe spot to bring our little one, we know it is clean, family friendly, and good food. We were sadly disappointed. To top it all off the staff were VERY inappropriate. They were complaining very loudly about comments a customer had made. We could hear everything that was being said and were across the restaurant. We were not greeted warmly, in fact, I would say they were disappointed to see another customer... that meant more work. A great disappointment. Big Boy would not be proud be displayed outside this establishment.
