This is not really a "dive", but it was not fancy by any stretch. You go to the counter to order, find a table, and then your food is brought to you. My chicken cordon blue on a pretzel roll was excellent, and my wife enjoyed her Cobb Salad. We were so glad that the lady at the visitor's center... More

We have been to Big D's a few times by ourselves and with friends as they pass through Roswell. The restaurant is a funky spot with the best burgers ever! Their Breakfast Burger is super - a burger, bacon, fried egg and jalepeno jelly on an onion bagel! Out of this world good!! And their Parmesan / garlic fries and... More

Good we had used Tripadvisor to find this place or we would not have gone in. From the exterior it looks like a dump and the parking is limited. We had to park across the street. Inside it has limited setting and is what we would call rustic. However, the menu is unique and the food is fantastic. We enjoyed... More

Really good food. Had a collection of burgers and tacos. Would recommend them all. Garlic fries and sweet potato fries also yummy.

We make annual pilgrimages to Roswell to see our daughter and son-in-law, and as often as we are in Roswell we make a stop at Big D's...it's never even questioned! Whether you choose "The Classic," or any of their other varied cheeseburgers, or the "Green Chili Cheese Steak," the "Bangkok Chicken Wings," or the "Thanksgiving Fries," you'll leave full and...

Very good! Parking stinks but they admit that. Order at the counter and they bring it to your table. Burger was very good. Had regular fries with mine but they do offer sweet potato fries that seem popular. I was told by local friends the Philly is also excellent. I was told the location is the old bus station. Definitely... More

I stopped here a few days ago for dinner and had the Texas BBQ burger with sweet potato fries. The burger and fries were outstanding. I'll definitely be going back for more.

It doesn't look like much on the outside, but it makes up for it in the food. I tried the Mexican Ripper, it was one of the best hotdogs I have eaten. Definitely worth a visit.

I was expecting more dive food like chili cheese fries...pie and ice cream etc. The menu really isn't that big but the food was good. I had a turkey cordon blue on a pretzel roll which was good. The regular fries I ordered extra crispy were cooked but not extra. Bottles of soda for drink made it easy. Not a... More
