Overpriced and dirty. Corn bread was cold, meats were chewy with not even a TRACE of smoke flavor. Worst brisket ever. Pork BBQ tasted like mush. They should have paid us to eat there. On the positive side, the waitress was quick, attentive and pleasant. The exterior was inviting, but at the end of the day you can't shine a... More

We went to Big Daddy's for convenience. We were staying in the Comfort Inn behind it. It is open and rustic. The décor is a little strange like it is not quite finished. Bar area is old and beat-up but not dirty or smelly. Food was okay. Beans and sauce are too sweet for my personal taste but if your... More

Admittedly we were looking for a different restaurant named big Daddy's that apparently is no more. But decided to stay. We did not have BBQ, but fried foods and burgers. All food was ok for what it was. Service was unfortunately slow. Was nearly an hour from time we sat down til we got our main course. Wasn't particularly crowded... More

Seems like a fun place to hang out, drink and dine, and with that in mind, the food doesn't need to be spectacular, and it wasn't. French onion soup not so french, and the ribs where a bit disappointing and a little pricey....actually, mine are better! Have had better BBQ but they have games and stuff to keep kids (and... More

We decided to try this restaurant strictly because if the outside. Looked like a fun, inviting place. Upon entering, we were very disappointed. My husband said, "this is the perfect place for the tv show, Restaurant Makeover! Inside does it match the inviting facade... We didn't expect much but we ended up being pleasantly surprised by the food. I had... More

From the outside it looks really good. If you are looking for Texas Roadhouse or Daves BBQ don't expect too much cause you will be disappointed. The sauce tasted like bullseye not a homemade blend, which would have been nice. The mashed potatoes were home made but the gravy was Heinz. Overall not bad but don't expect too much so... More

I was there recently right when the restaurant opened. There were maybe 3 other families in the place. My mother had ordered the eggplant parm sandwich and I had ordered the chicken parm sandwich. The food was hot, the portion was a nice size, but it seemed to take along time to come to the table. Also, there was little... More

Wasn't terrific. Food was good. Ribs were dry. I liked that they brought dill pickles with your menus instead of bread and butter. The baked beans were delicious. Decent menu to choose from. Just wish the ribs weren't so dry.

Has a very nice & inviting exterior, but I recommend that you KEEP ON DRIVING! Food was overpriced $35 for 2 sandwiches that were not hot, screaming kids, filthy carpet and slow service!
