We went for breakfast on a Saturday morning at 845 am. At that point they had one waitress and three people in the kitchen. The waitress kept apologizing and finally after 15 minutes someone else got there to help. Even after that it took them what seemed like a long time to unwind the orders. We had to ask the... More

My wife and her sister have enjoyed lunch here multiple times, and I could hardly wait to try it. Had the opportunity to experience breakfast this morning. The group of nine received great service and delicious food, in the classic diner atmosphere, highlighted by vintage signs, historic photographs, and furnishings reminiscent of the fifties and sixties. Elvis music complemented the... More

We were in town for a football game in Arlington. This was a fun place to take the kids. Burgers and ice cream. Food was quick even though there were a lot of people there. We enjoyed it! I got the Blues Brother Burger with fries.

Loved the food and shakes. Not fast food so don't expect to get in and out like a fast food restaurant. It is worth the wait though.

Cool place but a bit of a run down area getting to it. We seemed to have a newer waitress who had a lot of tables. She was bogged down but tried hard. My food was just okay but presentation was good. Burger didn't have much taste an tater tots were cold. My wife and kids really liked their fries.

First time here. The wife has been here many times for lunch. Thought we would try it for dinner. Wasn't crowed and the wait staff was extra friendly. Chelsea was at the register (Fairless) and I haven't seen her since she was very young at Strokers. The food was as good as everyone says it is. Good ole diner burgers.... More

This is the perfect place to relax & enjoy an old fashion meal! Bring your "Honey Bun", and pick a few different items & share. Finish off your meal with a Shake or Cake. You won't want to miss a visit to "Big State Fountain Grill". Full of memories from the past, you may have just forgotten about, but you... More

I have lived in Irving for 3 years now and I can truly say that I've wasted those three years by not coming to eat at Big State Fountain Grill sooner! The food was amazing and the prices are even better. My family got a variety of dishes... the salad was huge, the chicken salad sandwich was a unique recipe... More

I ate light as I was having a big dinner that night. The shakes and burgers looked great but I had to pass. Old school diner from years gone by, friendly people. A welcome respite from a day on the road. Thank You.
