BiggDaddy's Philly Steak House closes Adams location

BiggDaddy's Philly Steak House in Adams has closed. The owner said he is pondering finding a new location in North Adams.

ADAMS — Fans of BiggDaddy's Philly Steak House will now have to head to Pittsfield for a fix — at least for a while.

The owner, who recently opened a second restaurant, in Pittsfield, has closed his eatery on Commercial Street.

Xavier Jones said he closed the Adams store because many of his regular customers started patronizing his Pittsfield location at 137 North St. after its June 22 opening. Jones opened the Adams location in January 2017.

"As of now, we've closed the doors while I figure out what I'm going to do," Jones said. "I'm just not seeing the business there that I need to keep it open. When I opened the Pittsfield store, a lot of people stopped coming to Adams."

Both locations are about 600 square feet, he said. When it closed, the Adams store had two employees, while there are 12 at the Pittsfield location, Jones said.

BiggDaddy's offers a variety of Philly cheesesteak sandwiches and a variety of hoagies along with burgers, wings, salads and deep-fried sides. Prices range from $3.99 to $16.99.

"I won't open in that location again," Jones said. "If I can get the time, I'll start looking for a location in North Adams. It has twice the population of Adams, and I have some customers that come in from Clarksburg and Vermont."

Jones is a native of Philadelphia and has lived in the Berkshires for about 15 years.
