Came here for dinner with my husband and one of our kids. The food is always great here. The marinated chicken sandwich is terrific, would love to know their marinade. The lamb burger is amazing. On this visit our daughter got the honey bbq wings and said they were soooo good!!! Their onion rings (amazing!!!) and sauces put the meal... More

I've eaten here quite a few times over the years and still really like their burgers and onion rings combo. The problem for m know is their pricing. A burger combo now totals out at around $13.00 which is actually high when you consider the whole set-up is a step above fast food in terms on environment and I felt... More

This place serves mid-grade restaurant food in a fast food environment. There is outdoor seating and beware, there is no AC inside. I ordered the cheeseburger and it was very good. I also had the garlic fries...meh, not the best. All in all I walked out satiated, sweaty and $15 shorter for a hamburger, fries and a coke.

Very delicious burgers here!! I would say their burgers are sort of gourmet burgers, their fries are really, really tasty....they have cheese fries or garlic fries or sweet potato fries, as well as regular fries, and they are always piping hot and tasty! Nice environment, great seating area with several tv screens for sporting events. Love this place! It's not... More

The theory was that any burger place choosing to locate next door to the local In-N-Out must have seriously good burgers; otherwise, why take on competition of that caliber? Observing that Big Daddy's Fire Grill had indeed placed itself in that position, I decided to check the place out. This was not the easiest thing to do. Big Daddy's has... More

We went there for lunch on Sunday and had a nice hamburger and onion rings, but the noise from the TV sets on all the sports channels was to loud. every set was on a different channel. It is like a outside sports bar. that is alright if like the noise.

We went here after work to unwind. Great selection of beers on tap and decent happy hour food. Out door seating with Sports on the T.V.s.

We went here for lunch on Sunday to the Foothill Blvd location. We had previously always gone to the one on California Blvd near Huntington Hospital. I have been told that the one on California Blvd has closed. Too bad, as this was a nicer location than the one on Foothill Blvd. It was larger and had many more big... More

This is easily the most inconsistent restaurant in town. I can only speak about the the restaurant on Foothill, but there sometimes the cooks take short cuts that really ruin the experience. Examples: ** Sometimes the shredded lettuce intended for sandwiches winds-up in salads; lettuce slaw yuk! ** Sometimes old fries are "crisped" in the fryer - do that three... More
