We stopped in here on out easy to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and we just loved it. Funny thing that it is on Detroit St. and we are from Detroit! Great service, great food. Thank you!

The Big Egg isn't the Big Egg of years ago, New owners, changes, but this was the worst. We stopped there today and my wife asked for a change to the turkey wrap to just turkey, cheese, bacon. No lettuce tomato and NO Mayonainse which she is allergic to. Instead she was given a regular club on white bread that... More

Go here for big servings of breakfast staples. I enjoyed my egg sandwich although it was more of a bun than the advertised biscuit. However the potato pancake was terrible: it ws giant but tasted of flour and nothing. The wait staff was very friendly. The interior could use a touch up though. It's dark and sad inside.

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 chops which were about 1/4 inch think and seemed like they were steamed. I was... 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 the bank. If you are looking for a fast, cheap and tasty breakfast, try The...

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 had the American food and neither was very good. The price was cheap but so... More

A place called The Big Egg should have warned me to order eggs... I ordered fish and chips. The fish was 2 poor frozen pieces and over deep fried. French fries were cold. I must say their coffee was great and they had real cream.

Have heard great reviews and terrible reviews about this place over the past few months. During our visit the servers were very attentive. Our issue was with the quarter-sized bug that my mom found cooked in between her breakfast sausage. She politely asked to have her plate taken away. After giving the bug to the server, the servers who had... More
