And... the strawberries are grown by our neighbors, the Rosa family, who live right next door to us! Thank you very much for writing in and for recommending us. We are happy you had a great experience! C'mon back... Yours, Elizabeth

great fish tacos, don't let the name of the place put you off! Best dining is around the back of the restaurant.

“The Best Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

I can't say enough god things about this place. The food is absolutely delicious, fresh, great portions and the owners are super friendly and helpful. Try the fish tacos or shrimp, when they have them. Burgers can't be beat and the garden out back has a great vibe. Oh, and those margaritas... ahhh.

Looks like you tried all the popular faves! And we hit a home run for you. Next time you leave New England, stop in and see us. Maybe I'll have Chowdah! (I'm from CT!) Thank you so much. Elizabeth

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Don't be put off by the name. Big Daddy's Grill is a real gem. While visiting friends, we dropped in to Big Daddy's for lunch one afternoon. This place does not disappoint. The menu claims their margarita's are the best in town. They may have the best drinks any where. I had the ahi sandwich that was as good as any I have had. The ahi steak was cooked to perfection, seared on the outside and quite red inside. The fish was fresh and very tasty. The roll was excellent. My wife had the fish tacos, and as a native San Diegan she knows her fish tacos. These ranked right up there with the best she has had. Forget the fries and opt for the onion rings. These things are fantastic. This little eatery would be a find anywhere. In Boquete it is a jewel. We loved it. If possible, sit on the patio in the back.

It's always a huge compliment when a Fish Taco connoisseur loves ours! Ditto on that tuna, which Larry works hard to keep in the house. We are just over the moon about your review. Thank you so much! Yours, Elizabeth & Larry

“Boquetes finest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I go to Big Daddys at least once a week, sometimes twice. Elizabeth and Larry are wonderful. I have had a few health issues of late, but Elizabeth has altered what I used to love so much there to accommodate me, and has surpassed all of my expectations of "great service and hospitality".

Thank you so much!

We are so happy to provide you with a fun meal out while keeping within the guidelines of your healthy diet. Plus, we can do that for one, while the other can enjoy, say, a fried fish sandwich... Everybody leaves happy! And, that's all we care about. Thank you, and keep coming back! Yours, Elizabeth
