Big G's has such a large variety of sandwiches named for various politicians and judges. Bread is fresh baked and covers the dinner plate. Always wonderful.

Unknowingly ordered a BLT and this is the question I got. Said whole thinking of a normal BLT. Wow! What I got was two monstrous pieces of bread with what seemed like a pound of bacon. It was delicious but way beyond what one person...More
