Big Fresh Special - Edit

A tofu stir fry accompanied by a generous amount of vegetables makes plant based eating easy!

Savior in a veg desert - Edit

Big Fresh has consistently been a source of veg-friendly food for me for well over a decade. Their dishes are tasty, healthy and consistently good. The tempeh special is amazing. If in the area this is probably one of your best options as there aren't many!

Pros: Good food, Consistent, Atmosphere

Cons: A bit pricey, Location

excellent vegan options - Edit

It was exciting to discover this place on a recent trip to my hometown. Those of us plant based foodies are living the good life! The vegan invasion is in full force in Framingham too. We had the excellent Big Fresh Salad - lots of seeds, excellent vegan dressing as well as a wonderful seitan stir fry - deliciously marinated with roasted veggies and brown rice. While they do serve meat, it's still an excellent locally owned option for vegans looking for something more than a boring salad (obviously,with no offense to the amazing raw food rebellion).

Just what we were looking for - Edit

I had the falafel wrap which was really good. My brother was happy with the tabouli wrap and the iced tea was also very good (four options). The vegan chocolate cake wasn't great, but the wraps made up for it. There were several good vegan options.

Fast, fresh, convenient. - Edit

Love their tofu teriyaki with veggies over brown rice. I ask them to add Kale and Swiss Chard. not expensive ($11) big serving and delicious. I also love their felafel wraps, salads and soups. No real ambience, no alcohol. Probably best for lunch. Not really a date place. Highly recommend.

Pros: great vegan and veggie options, good value, can do take out

Cons: they serve meat , can get noisy

Good for quick bites - Edit

Came here for dinner on a weekday. Not a big place and was busy, but turnover was fast, so we got no problem finding seats.

The menu is all over map and very vegetarian/vegan-friendly. We got a lentil veggie ball salad, a tempeh stir-fry, and a succotash side dish. Veggie balls were a bit disappointing. They were simply a mushy mass of red lentils with spices and whatnots served cold on a huge bed of salad. The succotash was good, the tempeh with the thick sweet curry sauce was fantastic! Though they could a little less oil. Portions were generous, good value.

This place is like a college cafeteria. You order your food at the register, get a ticket, wait for your order number to be called, fetch your food, and dig in. Not the kind of place you would take your date to, but excellent for having a quick bite of yummy whole foods.

Pros: good value, tasty

Cons: can be oily

Mmm Big Fresh! - Edit

This is my favorite restaurant in the area! It's a small place but has a lot of personality. There is always a different display of artwork up for sale each time I go. The staff is super friendly and helpful. They have a great selection of vegetarian/vegan items. Any non-vegetarian items can usually be made vegetarian with tofu. I really suggest trying Big Fresh out (especially the falaffel wrap with hot sauce!) You can even watch them prepare your food!

Pros: Friendly Staff, Delicious food, Great atmosphere

Cons: Some meat on menu
