I've eaten there three times this summer. The first two times I drove from Roswell just to eat there. The food is absolutely wonderful, and the family owned restaurant makes you feel like one of the family.

We stopped in for lunch on a weekday, and there was a pretty good crowd. We were on vacation so we were not in a hurry, luckily. The waitresses were very friendly and attentive, but they could not compensate for a slow kitchen. 40 minutes for a hamburger and a Monterrey chicken sandwich. At least the food was good when...

We go to Cloudcroft about 3 times a year. We always eat at Big Daddy's. The choices are great. I personally love their Bar b Q. In the morning you can't beat the Big Daddy Omelet. We often take home peanut brittles well. Love it.

Our family has been here several times and have never been disappointed in the service or the food. They have the best steak I have had in the Southwest, cooked to perfection. If you are in the area, you'll want to stop, have a glass of tea, eat some fried pickles and enjoy the comfortable, friendly atmosphere of this mountain... More

We stopped here for dinner first night in town. Very pleasant young man waited on us. When I asked if they had wifi, he said, "Yes, we do but the owner won't tell the employees what it is." Sure enough I pull up a very strong signal, but it's locked. The owner is only there in the day time. I... More

We ate here twice on our vacation to Cloudcroft this past June. It was great both times. First time we ate in the restaurant. Second time we got it to go. Highly recommend, since there aren't many places to eat in Cloudcroft.

Traveling, we had to detour from our regular schedule. Lucky for us. We were able to eat a Big Daddy's Diner for the second time. The food was amazing the first time and today, it was even better. Everything was fresh, well seasoned, and just plain delicious. Our waitress was wonderful. Prompt and attentive, as well as a great personality.... More

The town of Cloudcroft is very beautiful. After a few days of relaxing on vacation, my family decided they wanted to eat out. We called ahead to let Big Daddy’s Diner know that 15 of us were coming and the restaurant did not have any questions for us. We arrived at the restaurant (Big Daddy’s Diner) and I was expecting...

We LOVED this diner! The BBQ, tortilla soup and pie were to die for! Our waitress was super friendly and the owner even stopped by the table and introduced herself! While complimenting her on the home-cooked flavor, she confessed that many of their recipes came from her father and grandmother! We have a cabin in Ruidoso, but Big Daddy's Diner... More
