Do you ever have a day when you just need to get away from work for lunch? That happened to a friend and I recently. Fortunately it was still a few minutes before 12, so we knew the wait at Big D's wouldn't be long. We easily found parking and there was no wait - however, by the time we... More

I really enjoyed eating from Big Ds. It's only my secondo tI'm but I'm hooked. Although my order was late night and a bit cold once I picked it up it was still delicious. I'm sure it was cold because we got lost trying to locate the building :) so it took a bit before we picked up the order.

Big D's is a must if you are visiting or living in Roswell. This is NOT a suit coat and tie required restaurant. This is about the food. First, whatever you order, get some garlic fries. Delicious. I don't know of another nearby restaurant that serves Gyros but Big D's are excellent. The green chili steak hoagie is very good... More

Thanks Tripadvisor. Would have never guessed such a place would be found in Roswell. If you're in the area, stop in. You won't be disappointed. The Garlic Fries are worth a stop in themselves.

We had read that this was Roswell's number one restaurant. Unfortunately this did not prove to be true during our visit. We came in at 4 pm on a Friday afternoon and the restaurant was nearly full. We both ordered green chile cheeseburgers and an order of french fries. The order took 40 minutes, far too long. The burgers were... More

Wonderful Cuban, salad, garlic fries and chicken wings. They offer great free cucumber​ water. Don't miss it for local food. Not a chain but not upscale either.

We ordered 2 Burgers and the Salmon Salad. Salad was great w smoked salmon, pecans, blue cheese, and apples. Lots of crafty burgers. It took awhile to get our food and cashier forgot to add fries to 1 order. We ordered fries and they never came out so we left. That was a bummer. We could have complained or asked... More

Staff was very friendly with a funky vibe. I Was able to taste various items on the menu.The tomahawk burger was excellent, open face but with awesome fried bread and Crab cakes were very good too. The Cuban sandwich was surprisingly good, a good balance between ham and pork. My only disappointment was the tortilla soup ok, very large portion... More

Great food that doesn't taste like fast food. You just have to try their garlic fries. I have eaten here several times. Great place to eat in or to order carry out. You will be satisfied with the quality and service.

Thank Abel C
