Restaurant
“Located in lower Greenfield where the locals call "The Run". We have served our Pittsburgh families GREAT food at a GREAT price since 1977. We recently were featured on Guy Fieri's "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives." Stop by and see why Guy thinks Big Jim's is "The Bomb!" Our menu is now in the south at BIG JIM'S Roadhouse near Southpointe.”

“Mad Mex Schpeel What is “Funky Fresh Cal-Mex”? Pull up a stool. We just mixed up margaritas with good tequila and fresh squeezed lime juice. Steaks and chicken are on the grill, and we grabbed some tomatoes and jalapeños for big bowls of salsa and guacamole. The tortillas are warm and the beer is cold. Get a big plate of everything and chill out. It’s a summertime, wear your shorts, drink a beer, sweat a little, relax with friends, have a margarita, forget the clock, eat a burrito party. Just a good time. Thanks for coming in.”
