We ate in this old-style-tacky 50's themed "diner" three times while in the area. Entry is part of a Shell gas station store, it's clean and friendly, with fresh-cooked food they adjusted to my low-sodium needs. The dinner specials for seniors helped on the price. Great homemade rolls and a soft-serve machine.

We are new to dining in Canon City and tried Big Daddy's Diner for lunch. The decor and cleanliness was acceptable. The service was poor. The food was truly awful. It seems hard to go wrong with a Frito Pie but it was runny and soggy with limp lettuce. My husbands fries were greasy and cold. Overpriced and will never... More

Reminiscent of a '50s diner. Our server was very friendly and the food was average -- what one might expect for this type of restaurant. My husband had a "bowl" of chili that was more the size of a tureen. He enjoyed it, and my BLT was good. Very conveniently located near the Royal Gorge Railroad.

We stopped here to celebrate two very special birthdays, my husband and his twin brother, we were greeted and seated promptly and had a very fun, friendly waitress. We told her it was their Birthdays and she offered them a discount to celebrate! The food arrived fast and hot! And all priced very reasonable for the portions they gave. There... More

My husband and I stopped in for dinner. Big Daddy's serves a very generous portion and the price was reasonable. The shakes are AWESOME...homemade and served in a tall glass, and the extra is given to you on the side. This appeared to be a great family restaurant. Stan & Terry Wade
