Big Johns has awesome food!! Very tasty and very reasonable. My favorite is the # 21 ham and cheese with everything and extra Italian dressing. The managers are very friendly and always make the food fresh to go. Get the 16 inch sub.. That way you have leftovers for lunch!!!

They make these fresh so if you order more than 1 16", expect to wait a bit. Drive through is kind of slow. Very popular at lunch time.

The place needs a good cleaning. Yuck! Could use a bit of seasoning and more onions but the steak was tender and plentiful. The bread was wonderful.

They have a lot of different subs on their menu. I talked to a guy in this location that came up from Flint just because he liked this location. They seem to season the beef perfect.

It was a perfectly adequate cheese steak, not very flavorful but full of meat. Real disappointed in the lack of restrooms, no place to even wash let alone empty.

This is a terrific place for a sub sandwich. There is a large variety of hot or cold subs in 18", 9" and 6" sizes. The main attraction is the steak and onion - shaved ribeye and onions cooked together with seasonings. I like mine with cheese, mushrooms, lettuce, tomatoes and Italian salad dressing. It's messy, but oh, so good.... More 

Thank Richard M
