Another great visit with great food and service. No interruptions while we dined unless to ask if everything was good or we needed more coffee. Waitress was attentive but not hovering as we were meeting friends from England. Always appreciate Frisch's attention to detail.

This Frisch's is like any other-a go-to restaurant with excellent service and delicious food. Our food was served promptly and our server was extremely nice. The only complaints I have are that the raspberry milkshake had no taste and the women's bathroom floor was sticky. Other than that, it was wonderful, and I will definitely go again.

Waitstaff did a great job with the service food quality was just okay. Seems as though the meat was overcooked and paper thin. Maybe just a sign of the times.

Big boy is a semi fast food place. Food is comsistent across all locations. Tarter sauce makes the burger. Try dipping French fries in it for a change.

Good taste but they seem smaller and smaller every time I come back. Place was fast and nice on the outside but is not the Mainliner of my childhood.

Stopped in for breakfast on the drive through to Alabama. I ordered the Farmer's Omelet. I thought they had it ready and waiting it came so fast. The service was excellent and the food was very good, no complaints. I was actually pleasantly surprised because I don't expect much from the chain restaurants like this.

Famous for their Big Boy and Super Big Sandwiches. Also for dessert the Hot Fudge Cake. I got the super big boy and it was excellent. The hot fudge cake is a must for dessert.
