Back in 2021, beloved restaurant Big Boy returned to Wisconsin for the first time in 26 years. Owners Chaz Hastings and Scott Carleton opened a location in Germantown at N116W15841 Main St., delighting Big Boy diehards and Big Boy newbies alike. But in early October, Hasting and Carleton announced plans to sell the Big Boy building in Germantown and close the location in order to open a new Big Boy 10 miles south, in Sussex, sometime this December.

Well, it turns out that “sometime this December” is today. Yes, the new Sussex Big Boy—which is called “Big Boy Burger & Sweets” to emphasize volume of ice cream and sweet treats available on the menu—announced it’s officially open to the public starting today (Tuesday, December 12). You can visit the new Big Boy, which is replacing Germantown’s establishment that closed October 22 as the only Big Boy in the state, at N63W23675 Main St. As posted below, its hours of operation are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. It’s closed Mondays.

Welcome back to Wisconsin (again), Big Boy!
