“OK, but not exciting BBQ”
Review of Fat Daddy's

Fat Daddy's
Ranked #9 of 110 Restaurants in Weslaco
Cuisines: American, Barbecue, Seafood
Restaurant details
Reviewed April 27, 2013

While servings were generous and prices reasonable, the BBQ meats have absolutely no smoke flavor, which I found disappointing in a barbeque restaurant. The meats, while very tender and moist, simply tasted like they had been slow cooked with no exposure to wood smoke at all. Not a bad meal, but not very exciting either.

We ate here and recommendations from some folks we'd met. It was ok but nothing exceptional for Barbeque. We are from Oklahoma and maybe we expect more but this simply didn't meet our expectations. The smoked turkey did not have much smoke flavor and was a little dry. The brisket also was dry. The salad was good and the sides were average. Portions were large but overall the experience was lacking in flavor. Will not return.

We go to Weslaco every year to visit family and always have to stop at Fat Daddys to eat. The owner always comes out to say hello and give us some grief. The food is good and it's a great placed to stop on the way home from spending the day in Nuevo Progresso, Mexico.

I wanted so much to like this place, because the burgers were great. Although the chilli seemed to be microwaved, and to top it off found a hair in it. I asked for cheese on the hot dog and a cold slice of cheese was thrown on. Sausage was horrible and bbq sauce was more like watered down tomato sauce. Service was minimal, and even nearly got overcharged by over 50$, only after insisting several times the ticket was wrong was it corrected. Bottom line, as good as the burger is I won't eat there again anytime soon.
