We ordered breakfast. My daughter expected her hash browns to come on side with her omelet (country). My omelet was excellent. I enjoyed my breakfast. There is alot to choose from here. The place was extremely busy and popular. Definitely an option!

Sat at the counter because, as usual, the place was packed on Saturday morning, and had a great, quick breakfast. The Servers were wonderful, happy and on their game! Angie rocked!

Breakfast food at the Big Egg is great but we have also been there at dinner time. It is pretty (with good reason). You get a lot for dinner, but it is canned soup, bagged iceberg, canned veggies, cold mashed potatoes. I ordered the pork...More

The Big Egg may not be the most beautiful place I've ever been to, but they make a very good breakfast at a very affordable price. Pretty much anything you might want: From waffles & pancakes, to omelettes and breakfast meats. And it never breaks...More

We went to the restaurant because it used to be horrible but was 'under new management' so we thought we'd give it a try. The menu was too extensive, trying to mesh Arabic and American foods unsuccessfully. I had the Arabic food and my husband...More
