The cheese and onion enchilada was boring. Rice was the only good item on the plate Chicken quesadilla had a few chunks of chicken and bacon but loaded with cheese, but no flavor. When we asked for salsa, it was brought to the table in a plastic catsup bottle. The waitress was very sweet and double checked with the kitchen... More

Exploring our new home state---stopped for lunch---the burger that my husband ordered was very big---he would have never gotten it in his mouth if it didn't have a very soft hamburger bun that he could smash down----mmmm good! Their chicken quesadilla was the very best I have ever had and that opinion comes from someone who lived in Houston and... More

Daddy-O's is a family friendly restaurant that delivers good food and great ice cream. The food is nothing you haven't had before but it is done well. The hard serve ice cream is delicious and a great way to end your meal.

They have a lot of ice cream flavors. You can walk behind the shop and sit at the Mississippi River while eating your ice cream.

We've lived in the area for 10+ years, but only recently visited Daddy-O's for the first time. We had a great meal - the bacon cheeseburgers and hot fudge milkshakes were fantastic - and enjoyed good service in a friendly atmosphere. We'll be back!

While they're not as inexpensive as fast food, you certainly get MORE than you pay for! The quantities are huge, the food seems to be home-made, the onion rings are the best in town, the malts come in a tin server with extra on the side, and the decor is 50's memorabilia. The servers are helpful and friendly and the... More

My favorite place to go for a burger and fries. The tacos are excellent also! We love the small town feel and friendly wait staff. We eat here about once every couple months.

I have been a customer of Daddy O's for well over 30 years. I've seen it change names three times In past 30 years. From Taco Towne to Lil Brooklyn and for the past many years Daddy O's. For me it's much more than a restaurant. It's an experience that I have enjoyed with my Grandfather, my Dad and now... More

Great burgers, 1950's decor. Fun spot. Grab a milk shake, too. This is a popular spot with locals, too.
