“Great food and price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

The ribs, brisket and pulled pork were excellent. The prices were very reasonable and you got a lot of food. Great sweet tea and service. The only thing I would have liked was more than 3 sauce choices.

“Cowboy Sundaes!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

If you've never had one, you're missing a real treat. The food at Big Daddy's makes me think I'm visiting my sis in Texas. The brisket (which hubby always orders) is very good. They 'made their name' with their excellent RIBS, which hubby and I order together. But my favorite is: COWBOY SUNDAES. I almost never order anything else! What is it? Take a huge ice cream sundae dish - fill the bottom with Big Daddy's fantastic sweet beans. On top of that, a big helping of BD's pulled pork (or any of their other barbequed meats). The next layer is the cole slaw. And top it off with sweet onions, and stick in some toasted Texas bread. AND it's only $11. More than enough for one person...two could share (but I won't). OK...my mouth is starting to water - good thing I live 100 miles away!

Great place to eat BBQ. We shared the meat platter and walked away full! Loved the decor, great service, food came quickly. Worth a visit if you're in Fairbanks and you love meat!
