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.

Excellent value. The waitresses are very sweet and give great service! The burgers are very good, as well as the malts.

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.

We have been here a few times. It's a little pricey for food that is pretty much offered everywhere else. The service is usually good. The food is average. The ice cream is good but not something I would go out of my way for. The décor is fun! I love Elvis in the entry. The place has a good... More

We've been going to Daddy-O's as long as they've been in Elk River (and before in Brooklyn Center). Our entire family absolutely LOVES the place. Great burgers, fries, salads and tacos (my daughter LOVES the "Three Tacos"). Fun food, fun people, reasonable prices, good service. I can't think of one thing we don't like. You can't go wrong by going... More
