About Us

Established in 2009, the Big Skillet has been serving up home cooked family favorites in a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, our menu is sure to cater to every appetite, and our specials, promotions, and seasonal favorites (updated daily on our website) are sure to please. From hearty breakfast skillets and homemade soups to hand cut chops and steaks, we take pride in our products, and use fresh, quality ingredients in all of our menu items.


The new owner of the restaurant is Mr. George Arsoniadis who has lived in the Elgin area and has been in the restaurant business for many years.


From all of us at Big Skillet, we look forward to seeing you soon. We think you will find our quality and value is second to none

Seasonal and Local

We refuse to compromise on quality in our restaurant. That's why we source our fresh ingredients from local farmers' markets.
