When we say "family-friendly restaurant" we mean a place where mommy and daddy can get a little buzz on while the kids can be safely let loose to wreak havoc in a designated play area. Big'z Burger Joint's West Side location off 151 and North Side location off Loop 1604 fit that description quite nicely. The simple, no-nonsense menu features big-ass burgers — wear stretchy pants and brave their triple-patty monster with a side of sweet potato fries — and 40 bottled and draft brews for parents. Big'z also offers a kid-friendly menu of burgers, hot dogs, grilled cheese sandwiches and chicken strips for those picky little scamps. Each location boasts a large, outdoor patio and flat screen TVs to watch the game. Families are invited to bring their own outdoor toys and games, so the kids can take advantage of the play area and run amok as if they were experiencing the taste of freedom for the very first time. The picnic table seating is perfect for accommodating large parties. Plus each Big'z location has a rentable party barn for birthdays, graduations and other large get-togethers. If you're childless, Big'z is still worth a visit, but be warned — this is a place where families reign supreme.
