    Not to bad.......

    Not bad, Worth the time, Our first time visit went well. Service was good, pizza was tasty and not badly priced for portion sizes. Good selection on the menu, Pizza, wings, Italian favorites with some Greek favorites on the menu too. Looking forward to another visit to check out their menu some more.

    First Time

    I will be back. As a resturant owner myself, I believe in second chances for locals. My quesadilla was not up to my standards and the chicken tasted old. However the staff was excellent and the triple chocolate cake was very good. As I said I will be back.

    Good food in Bad Town

    I have ordered a few things on there menu on several occasions and it has all been very good. Love the Jambalaya Nachos. The price of food and drinks is very good and they have the cheapest drinks I have found in town.

    Karaoke Night Rocks!

    I went with people from work. We had dinner... ribs, pizza, quesadillas. I ordered the gyro, it was yummy, and there was a beer special. We then headed to the bar area because it was Karaoke Night. Lots of fun, and it was very affordable!

    Good eats at Big Daddy's

    I recently had the pleasure of eating dinner at Big Daddy's last week. It was my first time at the restaraunt and the food was amazing. The pizza was supurb! I can't wait to go back and try some of the other mouth watering items that I saw on other tables around me. The wait staff was prompt and curtious. I highly recommend this place!

    great atmosphere!

    My group & I had dinner last Thursday night. The server was super nice and attentive, the drinks were cold and quickly refilled, and the pizza was absolutely wonderful. They did not mind that my group kept growing in size, there's definitely a 'the more the merrier' atmosphere in there! Will be back for the weekday lunch buffet that the server was talking about.

    awesome food & staff!

    Big Daddy's has the best pizza in town! The wonderful thing about this place is that they also have a very expansive menu as well! Sometimes I split a pizza with friends (of which there are several specialties or build-your-own) or order a hot pita or gyro. The bar specials are also the best in town, which half explains why it's always packed. It's also packed because Leslie and the girls are so funny and nice, really make you feel welcome, and take excellent care of their customers. Sometimes there's karaoke or a singer in there! The restaurant side is a great place to take the family, and they have plenty of room to accomodate big parties or special occasions. Greg must train his staff very well because the food is always quick, hot, and delicious! I highly recommend one of their specialty pizzas, the spanicopita, and any of their sinful desserts!
