Great place, best in summer when you can eat outside or in your car like an old school drive in Try the pizza rolls and shakes! The hamburger buns are fluffy and delicious!!! Not a good place for ppl with dietary needs - old school menu

Want a true local diner experience? The Big Chief is where you need to go. We love authentic diner places, and this one is it. The furnishings and atmosphere are dated, and the outside picnic area could use a bit of a powerwashing, but the food is excellent. We alllllll had burgers and fries (there were 7 of us!), the...

Was well worth the drive to Wallaceburg area. Got a Woody with onion rings and was very impressed with both the quality of the food ad speed of service. Almost felt like I travelled back in time 20 years. And I wouldn't have it any other way.

Call to order some burgers. The waitress kept going to the other line because it was ringing. Then when I ask to repeat my order she told me to call back when I got it together. I never call back I won't ever call there again.

Brian H, Owner at Big Chief Drive-In, responded to this review

Hi Karen. Did this occur on January 24th PM? I talked to everyone about this. The only time we ask someone to call back is if we have a cell phone that is dropping continuously. There was one tag from that night that was held back. The staff are trained to read back orders once it is complete. We have... More
