    I'm giving this category a 3/5 because of one resturant named Sugar Creek in the area. This establishment is well staffed, great food and has very intuitive management. This resturant is a awesome place to hangout during open hours and a nice place to eat.
    Review Big Lake
    THE LIFE IN BIG LAKE IS BOOMING WITH WORK AND FRIENDLY PEOPLE FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD. PRODUCTION IN HOUSING AND DEVELOPMENT IS IN FULL SWING. I WILL BE LEAVING TO PURSUE MY EDUCATION FOR A BETTER FUTURE TO RETURN HERE AND RAISE A FAMILY.
    There is great opportunities for people to work in the oil field and at local stores in the area. I've had a great experience working in this area and would reccomend people to where I have previously worked.
