Big A recognized as a gourmet root beer!

BIG A has been a popular place to enjoy lunch and dinner 7 days a week, emphasizing high quality and fresh ingredients prepared with old time care. Although Big A is known for some amazing gourmet burgers, they specialize in making the 1/4 lb and 1/3 lb deluxe burgers as classic 60’s & 70’s as can be–with toasted sesame seed buns, ripe fresh produce, house-made thousand, and Big A’s blend of seasonings. They even make the majority of their dressings and sauces fresh daily. For lunch or dinner, in addition to burgers and fries, BIG A serves sandwiches, hot dogs, crazy good salads, fish and chips, ahi tuna burgers, county fair corn dogs and more. BIG A has been offering Durham Ranch 100% Natural Beef for over a year. Natural beef patties can be substituted for on any of the award winning burgers on the menu.
