Walked in and there was one other table in the restaurant. You would have figured the table that was there would have been eating BBQ but they were not. The waitress didn't have a clue about how the BBQ was cooked other than in the...More

I went to "Daddy's" for the first time this past week, to try the lunch buffet. A couple men I work with recommended this restaurant, so I thought I'd give it a try. The luncheon buffet is rather small, with about six main dish offerings....More

My husband and I love the BBQ here. It can get busy during lunch time, but it's worth the wait. We always compare every BBQ place we go to this place and Daddy's is always the best!

Daddy's serves BBQ and Thai food at the same restaurant. My wife ordered a shrimp appetizer which was served burnt; I ordered the pork BBQ plate; when it arrived it didn't look like any BBQ plate I had ordered at other BBQ restaurant. We both...More

The restaurant has been around for a long time. It has not improved with age. Service is fast, so if you in a hurry its a good thing. The food does not impress, it's mediocre at best.

Food was really good. My dad got the thai noodle soup and I got the pad Tai and we shared some pot stickers. Really good, hot, and a nice display. It's a weird place but I like it. it's unique and different.

This is a very interesting restaurant but I would pass based on this last visit. The buffet was ok and the service was pretty good but not good enough to go again.

Not great. The restaurant smells funny (probably cause the house is old). It's hot and they use fans to cool it off. All of that could be forgiven if the food were good... Food is too sweet. I was looking for good thai food, and...More

Not to bad. Like everyone else says, not much from the outside. I was there to eat anyhow. Small variety, maybe a dozen things to choose from. The Thai beef salad is very good, got a little spice to it. Even the lone bbq item...More
