First time visit and it was alright. I had the pizza burger meal and it was ok. Kinda squished. The fries and gravy were good but not out of this world. The staff seemed crabby and no smile on their face. It wasn't what I...More

Whenever I am in Bismarck, it is a must to stop at Big Boy and get a couple pizza burgers flying style and of course the fries with gravy. The drive-thru line is busy but moves pretty quick. Another great choice is the walleye fingers.

Have been watching positive reviews of the pizza burger so gave it a try. To me, it was just awful. The burger part was tasteless and the pizza part was like eating tomato puree out of a can. Maybe it was a bad day.
