Big Boppers is best known for its chili — all meat, no beans, available topped with cheese, sour cream, or jalapeno peppers. Burgers are good, too, as is peanut butter pie for dessert.
If you are looking for a place to eat in the Marblehead/Sandusky Ohio area that will fill your stomach without emptying your wallet, Big Boppers is an excellent choice. Within minutes of Lake Erie and such historic landmarks as Perry’s Monument and the Marblehead Lighthouse, this establishment is perfect for the weary traveler who is looking for something to fill his or her stomach.
Initially, I was skeptical of this place, but despite my fears of this being just another greasy spoon, I was very pleasantly surprised to find that the quality and variety of food at Big Boppers was very much on par to say the least.
What to eat at Big Boppers
Big Boppers lends its name to its variety of burgers, but don’t let this fool you. Big Boppers features much more, including a variety of seafood, including the local favorite – walleye. Ribs are also on the menu, and they come in a nearly indomitable serving. Salads fresh and green are also a feature, including the Greek Salad that comes loaded with feta cheese, tomatoes, and succulent shreds of beef.
Big Boppers most defining menu item is most likely its chili. Ken Kostal, the owner of Big Boppers, makes regular appearances at local chili cookoffs. His chili philosophy eschews the use of beans in his all-meat chili. You can order some of this local chili in a cup or bowl, and top it with cheese, sour cream, or jalapenos. Suffice it to say, Kostal’s very delicious concoction, which has a perfect balance of spice without too much heat, gives Cincinnati style chili some very formidable competition!
Dessert cannot be passed up here. The peanut butter pie with chocolate shavings capped off an excellent meal. You will not be disappointed in any way. Service is friendly and the locals will be sure to share some tips on good fishing spots if you ask.
