    Maybe they'll bring back the IB. Had it a couple times there and it was damn good.

    Remembering when The Depot American Diner would decline an order because the turkey was not finished roasting.


    Ironically, wasn't able to get a turkey club at Big Guy's the other day because they were out of their house-made bacon!

    New on the menu, their own recipe 9” hotdog. Also shown is their traditional Vienna.

    Pretty good dog, available steamed or grilled and I’d bet they would throw it in the microwave if you wanted.

    Good beefy flavor with a touch of smokiness. All in all just fine. The sport peppers are the perfect pepper you would imagine.

    Keep an eye out for the buy 2 get 1 free offers.

    Saw Brendan across the street last week at Jewel and congratulated him on the new menu. He mentioned that he was surprised that a $13 deluxe sandwich or plate would be much more popular than a bargain $3 sausage sandwich. Go figure. :) 1/2 lb corned beef sammie was the special today.

    Big Guys Turkey Club, and an order of BG fries.
    This caused my wife and sister to sit at a table silent for about 15 minutes straight.
    You have no idea. NONE.
    Complete silence except for munching.
    You have no idea.

    The Big Guys turkey club is still the best one on this planet.

    Funny Big Guys bumped as I have it on my mind.

    I had the chance yesterday to eat someplace fun and junky, but I decided to fight the urge. I fought successfully until I happened across Big Guys on Instagram. Turns out they had some kind of Sunday supper with beef tenderloin, lamb sausage, shrimps, a lamb chop, grilled vegetables, pita, potatoes, aioli, tzdicki, and maybe something else. I said F stay at home, and I high tailed to Big Guys.

    It was a bit weird that there was no sign or other indication of the special, like they did not want to sell it, but I unloaded my Instagram and said, "give me that." I sat at the counter and about 10 min later, two bags were presented to me. Maybe it's to do go, in fact one of the things that attracted me was the chance I'd get more than one meal. Still, I live far enough from Big Guys that I had not planned on taking it home. It kinda annoyed me that I was not offered the chance to eat in; I mean it's not like the place does not have eat-in space. There was no fork, no napkins to facilitate eating. Feeling rather not wanted, I decided to leave. I also decided to peek in my supper before leaving.

    Good thing I checked. No tenderloin. No shrimps. I had to go up to the counter. They dropped some more meat in my box with the same hospitality they had been showing all night. And nary an apology. Granted, I was made whole. Yet, what if I had not checked.

    Here's the kicker, what really gets my goat. I wrote a little note to them on social media. I congratulated them on successful social media; I mentioned I really liked the supper (especially the lamb chop). I also told the story of the missing food and the missing apology. It was a private note just the way these guys always ask--they say don't go to yelp, tell us, and they say, do it in private. 24 hours later, no reply. Again, it's not like I did not get what I paid $12 for. It just left me all a bit uppity. The fact that they don't seem to care has me even more grrr-face.

    Recent conversation about “The Freddy”, a sausage patty sandwich, BGs has their Stromboli for a special this weekend (and maybe longer).

    Big Guys Stromboli 2020

    They did switch up the sandwich for this specials outing...

    When asked about the difference they mentioned “It’s Lighter”.

    Sausage Patty
    Arugula
    Whipped Ricotta (x2)
    Parmesan
    Marinara
    French Bread

    It was different! Lighter as mentioned.

    I’m not sure the Marinara was the same as Brendan’s neckbone gravy, still delicious but not as much depth.

    Chicken Pierre was great as always although the staff kept correcting me and referring to it as Chicken Tenders as if they were trying to push Pierre into history. I haven’t seen him in a while.

    Trying not to be a bigger guy than is necessary, it had been a while since I'd been to Big Guys. But the news via Fitzgerald's cookout series that the buffalo chicken sausage was back for a limited time, plus the b2g1 sausage deal on Wednesdays, proved to be the nudge I needed.

    The buffalo chicken sausage was even better than I remembered. Cooked perfectly with a nice snap, garnished with slivers of carrot and celery and bleu cheese dressing. If this sounds good to you, you owe it to yourself to go before it's retired again.

    I love a fully dragged Chicago dog but rarely get one here since they switched to a jumbo dog, which I recalled not liking very much. I sprung for one yesterday and received instead a double dog with two standard skinless links. Ok but nothing special and your $5.50 is better spent on almost anything else on the menu here. I'd love to see Big Guys do a proper 6:1 Vienna natural casing dog on a Mary-Anne bun (Rosen's is right down the street!).

    The sleeper hit was their "individual" Cobb salad, new since I was there last. Supremely fresh and quite generous (easily equivalent to a large Malnati's salad) with their own roasted turkey and ham. Dressing and bleu nicely packed on the side. Can't imagine not getting one of these every time I go.

    A great meal and I resolve to go more frequently.
