“You won't leave hungry!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2014

The burgers are huge (and delicious), the beer was ice cold and the service was fantastic. If you're in the neighborhood and in the mood for a great meal, don't pass this place by.

“Fun Atmosphere, Decent Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

We ate here on Father's Day because friends suggested that it would be a fun place to grab brunch. The atmosphere is very cute, retro and charming. Service was good and the food was very good. We ordered from both the breakfast and the lunch menu. Pancakes were delicious as were the sandwiches and the Fab Four omelet. The tater tots are over-rated for sure as was the milkshake we ordered. To be fair, my kids got the birthday cake milkshake - which sounds terrible anyway. They give you plenty of food and we thought the prices were reasonable. We would definitely go again but would order a different milk shake! They have outdoor seating as well which looked very nice.

“pancakes to die for ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014

I had breakfast there with friends of mine.The atmosphere, service and food was excellent! Best milkshake I've had in a long time! And the pancakes were absolutely TO DIE FOR!!!! Lots of vintage pop-culture items decorating the walls, which was pretty cool :-) Can't wait to come back!

“Big Fun at Big Daddy's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2014

This place is a must-stop for anyone feeling blue. Or anyone hungry. Or, well, anyone! The atmosphere is festive and relaxed, the portions are huge and delicious, the service is fast, efficient, and polite. What more to ask? My daughter had chocolate chip pancakes which she declared even tastier than they looked - and they looked amazing. I had the Chicken-Lickin Sandy sandwich, which was filling and cooked perfectly. Our only sadness was that we couldn't try more on this fun, eclectic, throwback-to-the-'50's style menu. It's loud in there, so don't think of going on a romantic date, but then again… if your date digs burgers, what the heck, I assure you he/she will forget the noise, dig in -- and definitely want to date you again!
