Big Six has been serving up affordable food since the 70's.
I've come here a total of three times. I'm a fan of locating the nearest greasy spoon especially after a really awesome Saturday night, and I was told that this was the one so I decided to give it a try. On my first visit the booths were filled up and I of course first noticed the decoration, aka Christmas things and duct tape holding together the booth seats which is always expected. The selection on the menu is abundant, although there's a lot of sneaky charging like $0.85 for mayonnaise or $0.35 to substitute french fries for hash browns etc. I chose the Eggs Benny and asked for whole wheat toast instead of English Muffin. The food took approximately 45 minutes to come out, and this was for 3 people. First, they gave my boyfriend a Corona, so he told them he wanted Root Beer not beer, he then had to open the menu to show them what he meant before actually physically having to point out the Root Beer in the fridge because they still weren't getting it. The Eggs Benny still had english muffins, so I just forgot about it and ate it anyway. The food wasn't too bad, the quality is what you pay for ($5.99), the hollandaise is definitely from the packet, and the hasbrowns weren't actually completely cooked in some bites.
On my second the third visit, I was served by a younger girl. Her poor English impeded us from being able to make what we wanted clear to her, like sausage instead of ham, whole wheat instead of white, milkshakes, and other things that are on the menu. I understand she is honestly trying but the barrier in languages is frustrating, especially when it came to the bill and we wanted it split between couples, and instead they put mismatched things together and didn't understand what we wanted changed. All this place needs is better service and I'd be going there more often.
Excellent service and portions, pretty good for a greasy spoon! best place for big food for average cost . the meatloaf is the best ,6 bucks . one of my favorites.service is solid and friendly . Any thing from pasta to burgers and chinese. this is the best place to go for a sun hangover!!
My boyfriend and I come here sometimes. The food is good if you know what to order. The breakfast deals are yummy. Burgers are quite good too. I especially appreciate the meatloaf. loaded with onions and mushrooms.
the food tends to be heavy/greasy. But a lot of good food isn't waist friendly.
The service is good, the ambiance is mediocre.
it's not fine dining by a long shot but it's good eats.
I go there for their fresh pancakes. The aroma is incredible, you can really smell the real ingredients. The pancakes are fluffy and perfectly golden brown. Crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside. Never going to IHOP for pancakes again. Give it a try, it's definitely worth it if you love pancakes.
Yes, it's a greasy spoon. Not 5 star dining - but it is a reliable greasy spoon! Not everyone appreciates this type of place - my mom wouldn't set foot in it, but dad loved it!
Expect the food to be of the greasy type! They fry up tasty bacon, eggs, pan fries, sausage, pancakes, french fries...burgers, no trendy meals here! We usually get a breakfast special, love the homemade pan fried potatoes. The food is CHEAP. The trucker special breakfast is under $4.....bacon, eggs, hashbrowns and toast!
The staff are friendly enough, this place if often busy though so be warned you might be waiting a bit. Especially weekend mornings.
As for the ambiance, well, it's a little greasy - what can I say? They keep the tables clean and the dishes washed, I don't fear for my health any more than at any other restaurant. The building is ancient, and it's in a dodgy part of town.
Good if greasy is the cure for your Sunday morning hangover...
It may be a little old but this place has the best prices! I always come here for breakfast on the weekends. If you're looking for a small cheap greasy spoon with good service and lots of food, this is the place to come! I can never finish my meal!!!
That place is a dump and the service is horrid. im just glad theres a new breakfast place accross the street. hey big 6 that urban pepper place accross from you is WAY better.
no more risking my health eating there, the food tastes uber homemade but with an excess amount of oil on everything...like what are you doing?
I honestly can't complain about anything about my experience here. The price was right.. I got what I paid for.. Plain and simple. The food tasted ok. Wasn't gross, wasn't anything to write home about. I would go here again.. But I wouldn't go out of my way, or suggest it to any of my friends. Unless they asked if I knew a good place to get cheap breakfast. Don't be afraid to try it.. But don't get your expectations too high either.
The price is right, the food is good. Although the service isn't the greatest, when taking a order right it down so you get it right. The waitress screwed up about 3 things on 1 order. I mean what kind of service is that? People have allergies, so write down the order and get it right. Other than that the food is good and cheap, place is a little bit older, but known for its breakfasts. Pass on the chinese food, its not quite authentic.
Been a couple of years since I was last here. Nothing much has changed, which is a good thing. Same old carpet, faded pink coloured walls and same menu. Prices haven't changed in years and the food is as good as ever. Best hash browns in town and the Truckers Special is great value. Service is quick and the staff are always friendly. Remember to leave a tip!
Easily one of the best greasy spoon cafe's in town. Recommended if hungover.
A cheap, local greasy spoon to get a decent basic breakfast at. Breakfast will cost you half what the same (but with inferior food) breakfast will cost you at Denny's or White Spot.
After my less than stellar experiences at the local breakfast places, this'll be my new go-to for basic breakfast. The lunch stuff looked pretty good too.
Friends told me about their "trucker's breakfast". Went there this morning but was disappointed by the food. Food is cold, toast was burnt. However, staff is nice and friendly. Very old and out-dated cafe. Price is OK, $3.75 for a breakfast and coffee for approx $1.10. going back?? no way.
Ok, let me start by saying the restaurant looks a bit old. This is your classic greasy spoon so to speak with excellent food. The Big Six has been a favorite of ours and makes the best homeade fries I have ever had. They also have daily specials. You get a real homeade hamburger, fries and soup of the day for only $ 6.50. The staff are excellent and the place is usually full around supper time. The only down side is that they usually close at 7:00 pm.
