We stopped in for lunch and had the Cajun Chicken and Big Kahuna Chicken sandwiches. Both were very tasty. While not huge, they made for a satisfying meal.

We decided to try Big Earl's for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. The misters on the patio seating kept us comfortable but not wet. Watching pedestrians and traffic pass by was a bonus as we enjoyed our burgers, fries and beer.

I have enjoyed breakfast and burgers at this place since it opened. The breakfast's and the burgers are the old fashion '60s style. Perhaps a little greasy but it is delicious! The summer months are tough on the outside sitting area, but early morning and evening it is wonderful.

If you're looking for breakfast, gotta try the chicken-fried steak with eggs. Good place to go after burning some calories climbing Black Mtn!

Food is excellent. I love that it is so casual and it is nice to get away from all of the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We go there at least once per month.
