If you like burnt burger meat on a half burned bun then order the Big Boy that I had tonight, they can't get the request of no tarter sauce correct either. They used to have the best onion rings ever, I don't know what they are doing to them besides under cooking them but they have lost that flavor. I... More

Stopped by with Lady companion for breakfast. Big Boy has an interesting component to their menu, essentially, they have a section whereby a patron can build their breakfast combining 3, 4, 5 or even six items at ~ $1.00 per item, this option is far cheaper than what is offered on their breakfast buffet. We were impressed the ability of... More

This is a typical Frisch's Big Boy. I stopped in for breakfast. I had a Spanish omelet. It was pretty good. The service was fast and friendly. The décor was cookie-cutter. Overall, the food is good and a good value.

Our group had 2 separate orders of onion rings and they were almost inedible. We also had an order of fish that... More

Maybe I am stuck in the 60's or 70's with this concept, but it has a great breakfast buffet. Service is what you would expect; fast and furious with most opting for the buffet. Clean and reasonably priced if you only have 20 minutes or so to stay.

Slow service, disappointing food options, not tasty enough to try again. Skip this unless you like eating frozen food cooked under the guise of fresh

Whenever we have a stopover in Cincinnati, we have breakfast at this Big Boy restaurant. The food is delicious and the prices great. On our recent visit, Kim, our waitress, was pleasant and efficient. I so wish we had this restaurant chain where I live.
