Recommended by someone and it turned out to be horrible. Some famous chef, Guy F. had been there and given them a great rating...either he went on a good day or he had no idea what the heck he was talking about. The food was terrible. The service was worse. Maybe we just went on a bad day but it was such a huge waste of money.

We frequent this place from time to time. Being originally from Georgia, I will say that this place doesn't serve the best BBQ I have ever had but it serves some pretty good stuff. It truly is some of the best BBQ I have had outside the "Bible belt" of the south. Theirs ribs and potato salad is darn good and breads aren't to bad either. We like going on the weekends so we can have dinner with beer and live bands, which they generally do every week. Good place and good times.

I have been all over and eaten BBQ, but Big Daddy's is one of the best i've had. I had the big smapler platter and everything on it was great. Even the sides are amazing.

If you like BBQ sauces with some heat, this is a good stop for you. The pulled chicken BBQ sandwich was all-white meat with a nice smoky flavor---not exactly "pulled" like we have in the South but still very tasty. Rib tips appetizer is good, and so was the brisket. All the sauces have a kick, even the sweet one. Service was friendly.

The BBQ is good here, but the menu is a little small. If you are a Southern BBQ purist it might not be quite up to your standards, but I am not and thought the food was quite good and the atmosphere to be very Alaskan.
