I am a fourth generation Napan and have gone to big d s my whole life and after years of great food, it has taken a sever turn down hill. The half chicken used to be, I belive a raw chicken cut in half then cut into four portions and deep fried in there dredge. Know its not fresh or raw and caked with someone elses coating and deep fried. BAD MOVE. The burgers are not nearly as good as they once were. Not Fresh or Raw. With all the great burgers out there this is not one. Word on the street is Big D s has been on the way down for a while. The prices simply do not justify the meal qulitey or experiane it once had.
I was born and raiser in Napa and have had the pleasure of their food since they opened. This is one of the finest in the valley for fast food. The service and quality are outstanding! The shop is extremely clean and from one of the sons of Italy gets an A+ in my book and a lot of other locals.
so my wife and I went to big D's last night and everything seemed to taste great...immediately when my wife got home her stomach hurt for hours...I had a stomach ache but didn't think much of it..
The next day around noon I was using the bathroom frequently and throwing up...I am still sick, and I KNOW it IS NOT the flu..my wife is okay because she just had a veggie burger..I had the 1/2 burger and fries
I have been eating at Big D's for about 15 yrs now, and I have yet to find a better burger. For me it's the same everytime. 1/2 Bacon Cheeseburger, no tomatoes, grilled onions, larger curly fries, and a large iced tea. Although I no longer work in Napa, I still hit Big D's EVERYTIME I'm in town. The beauty of Big D's for me is the consistency in the greatness of the taste. Whether it's a burger I had years ago or one I'll have years from now, I know the quality and the taste will not be outmatched. When my friends and colleagues ask about a burger I always tell them ... Big D's, best burgers on the planet. Thanks for doing it right everytime Big D's.
Big D's has been a Napa staple on Silverado Trail for years. Big D has since past away, but his commitment to making delicious burgers lives on through his wife and Big D's friendly staff. Although Big D's is rightfully classified as a fast food joint, the burgers are definitely restaurant quality. It should also be said that I have never ate at a restaurant that can match Big D's in quality and taste. Big D's is in a league of its own! Make sure you get yourself some fries and a shake with your meal to get the true Big D's taste experience. If you're hungry and looking for a quick meal, go to Big D's; the quality and taste will amaze you.
