We visited here after a day at the lake for burgers and corn dogs. The buns on the burgers were tasty and seemed bakery quality. The rest of the burger was ok, not excellent but "pretty good" overall. My kids liked their corn dog and chicken strips but thought the burger was kind of small. They loved getting their drinks...

This was one of my first TA disappointments. Daddy-O's received pretty good ratings. I was disappointed by what we get for the price. My husband ordered am original burger and it was nothing special. Looked like it was fresh out of the freezer. Couldn't believe the wanted $14 for a plate of nachos. I think it would be a good... More

Being a local I have eaten here many times!! The food and service is always great! The French fries are my favorite in town and you have to get the chips and cheese with the cheese that sits over a candle! So yummy!!!!

I had a 1/3 pound cheeseburger with fries, chili and a Diet Coke. The food (especially the chili) was very good but kind of pricey for that type of fare: my bill came to over $18.00 The service could have been better. My pop was refilled only after asking. The chili arrived with the cheeseburger, not before as I would... More

The food is good and the service is quick. There are many items on the menu but we always go for the burger. The buns are from the bakery down the street and they are extremely fresh. And try a shake or malt, you won't be disappointed. My only complaint is that they are not open on Sundays.

If you are passing through Elk River maybe visiting some antique shops or checking out the great Mississippi then Daddy-O's Café is the perfect place to experience a good American 50’s style diner, the food is fantastic quality and I recommend a Root Beer Float!

Good burgers and malts, what else do you need? The taco salad is huge and the service is always friendly.
