Great lunch

Great place for lunch. Small place. Would have driven by it. Locals recommended it. Burgers were good and the staff was very friendly. Make sure you ask for onion etc on your burger. They will put on if you ask - if not, you only get the dressing lettuce and tomato.

Been here during the visit to Tahoe lake. Dbl cheeseburger is just something! Add jalapeño to it and you'll see the stairway to heaven. Strongly recommended!

By this point in our trip we were tired of big table-service meals and just wanted something good, quick, and local. Big Daddy's did not disappoint! The burgers were great...as were the fries, which makes or breaks burger-eating in my book. The prices were reasonable and the service was quick. I wish they had a location closer than ~1500 miles...

After visiting Lake Tahoe, I stopped in here before hitting the road again. Our order-taker/cook was quite nice and friendly. Burgers are freshly grilled, pretty hefty in size, and pleasantly juicy & flavorful. The French fries were hot and crisp - Yum!

This place doesn't look like much from the road, but it is quite a little gem. The Burgers are big, juicy, and so fresh. Add some amazing crunchy fries and a drink for around 10 bucks. It is a bit pricier than a fast food joint, but it's worth every penny.

Fast, convenient and very good. I go here in a heartbeat, it is better than Burger King, McDonalds, or any other joint save for Five Guys.

For a hamburger joint this place is hard to beat price wise as well as taste. A huge hamburger grilled with all the trimmings. A little dive but overall a great place for a quick burger.

Having just driven up to Tahoe and checked into our hotel, we were ready for a late lunch as nowadays very few eateries on Route 50. Bit too tired to get the car out again and drive to our all-time favourite Izzy's so we walked across the road and ordered at Big Daddy's. 100% satisfaction, burgers cooked 'soft' to our... More

Got a takeaway for lunch. It was good, he got the order right, everyone loved the burgers. Good portion size. Nice, helpful staff. Tasted like an In and Out Burger. Great value in an expensive but fantastic town.
