We went here because it had been featured on Diners Drive-ins and Dives. The BBQ was better than I expected for a restaurant outside of the typical "BBQ belt". We went on Tuesday which was $1 ribs, so everyone had ribs except for my son who had wings. He devoured the chicken wings. The ribs were good. The service was... More

We had the Pig Out Platter and the deep fried pickles. The restaurant was packed when we got there so we thought we'd be waiting quite a while but we were seated quite quickly and received all our food quite fast also. The deep fried pickles were a little too greasy and I figured it was because the fryer was... More

My husband, son, and I stopped for lunch after a hockey game. My son had a Bacon burger, which he loves, my husband a sandwich piled high with all kinds of meats, and I had the wings with the original sauce on the side. Everything was hot and delicious! The wings at Big Daddy's are definitely not out of a... More

We stopped here for lunch last Saturday and was glad that the food was just as great as it was during the weekend as it is during the weekday.

Ate here for dinner and was not to impressed. Definitely not Southern bbq. My husband and I split the pig out meal, lots of food and plenty for two. I was not a fan of their sauce. It all had a bit more kick than what I prefer for my sweet sauces. Also they had pepper in everything. On the... More

The barbecue was very good. I had the trio sliders. In particular, the brisket slider was excellent. It was every bit as good as Texas brisket. These people really do know how to do southern bbq.

We were there for a private funeral reception. All the employees were very friendly and the service was great. All choices in the buffet were very well done.

Seen this on Food Network, and as the food-geek I am, we just had to visit the most northern southern BBQ in America. And I promise you, I was NOT disapointed al all. Ordered a really big mixed bbq plate with all kinds of meat, mac'n cheese, three sauces, bread, fries... I tell you: it was like I've died and... More
