Passing by on the highway and stopped in for lunch. The restaurant was super busy but we were seated quickly. We both decided on fish and chips and the meals arrived very quickly, especially given the large crowd. I would guess it was less than five minutes from the time we placed our order to the time we received our... More

Good basic menu (mostly fired entrees) but very reasonable prices. Service can be hit or miss depending on how busy it is . We often go for the breakfast specials, usually getting our order within 10 to 15 minutes of ordering. Some busy mornings we have seen this stretch to 40 minutes without a word from our waitress. Overall pretty... More

Fast service, fair size menu, reasonable prices. This one was quite loud as it has high open ceilings with no muting material. Lots of parking, chance to buy gas if needed.

When the Truckstop is the highest rated restaurant in your town it is probably a good reason for people to keep driving on through. No exceptions to the rule here. We stopped for lunch food was bland and fried and portioned and expected and quick and forgettable. But maybe just what everyone is looking for in Enfield!

The Big Stop has everything .... gas for your car, friendly and knowledgeable staff, delicious food as close to "homemade" as you are ever going to get and modestly priced too. Try some of those freshly made wonderful desserts! Oh yes! I'll be back!!!!

We had to wait a few minutes for a table but it was well worth it. A young man played Christmas music on an electric piano which added to the Christmas feel. The place was very busy but all the wait staff were pleasant with each other as well as the patrons. The food was plentiful and tasty, will return... More

Been to this location three times since moving into the region. Having a sit-down meal in the Crossing Restaurant located inside. Food has been very good and very attentive staff. I've also just read Enfield has been voted one of the 55 most cosy towns in Canada, too.

First time at Big Stop. Clean and comfortable. Nice selection of home style meals. I had liver and onions, not for everyone.. Perfectly prepared and a large portion. Serving staff was excellent. Will visit again.
