This has been in the mall as long as I can remember and the food is consistent. I love the Italian loaf. There's something special about the bread!

My wife loves this place. She always gets the same thing, an Italian loaf. Bread is made fresh every day. Sandwiches are always good and fresh. Prices are fair

Ok my family loves to grab a quick bite at Big Loafer before a movie or after doing a little shopping at the mall. I understand that the menu items are made fresh daily in the store. I also understand that at the end towards...closing time they tend to run low on items or even run out. I also understand what ever is left over is discarded at the end of the day and you do not want to much product left over as waste. The issue I have is I have been there 3 times in the last month and they were out of pig -n- the blankets. I have been 3 to 4 hours before they close and they are out. They need to have more to bake later in the evening. Soon people will not return cause they are in to big of a hurry to clean up and close and not to have product ready for the customer. They bake early then hold them in the warming cabinet for hours. I love this place and want to keep returning! Stay customer focused!More

Big Loafer is a staple in the Huntington Mall. I'm 30 now and have been going there since I was little and I don't think anything has changed. The tables, the rotating stools, the weird decor, and also the menu. They've maybe added a couple...things but the hot dogs, the saycey, the crinkle cut fries, the slushies, all still the same and they're great. I don't visit often but I always thoroughly enjoy it when I do. The hot dogs are fresh and tasty and the steamed buns are a great compliment to them. Their hot dog sauce is the bomb as well. If you're looking for a great hot dog, don't pass this place up!More

I know this doesn't mean much to everyone, but they have the best Diet Mountain Dew in the whole food court. Also, the pigs in blankets are the best. I would suggest the Italian Loaf and the fries.

The personnel were friendly and efficient. A very short wait for the delicious meat loaf sandwich. Messy , but very good. Restaurant has a dining room. The price is very reasonable.

Service quick and friendly. Fairly clean. Italian loaf as good as I remember but husband's ground beef loaf basically tasteless. If we go back we one more time will try the grilled cheese or pepperoni roll. A little disappointed.

This is a family owned fast-food style restaurant that has been in business a LONG time, which speaks to the quality of their food. They specialize in fresh baked breads with sandwich fillings. The owners are not bashful regarding their religious beliefs, which I respect....I would definitely recommend people to try them out!More

Great bread filled with great toppings. It’s been there since the mall opened and is a perfect example of a classic greasy spoon! I recommend the Cheeseburger loaf or soup!

We love the Italian Loaf from Big Loafer. It's made on fresh baked bread which is really soft and is filled with ham and banana peppers. It's a sandwich we crave sometimes. The serve the crinkle cut fries which we love also. It's really a...clean restaurant that serves great food at the mall :-)More
