Went for dinner on aSaturday evening. The food was average as was the service. The place did not feel clean or exhibit any reason to return.

Delicious pulled pork, brisket, turkey and chicken quickly prepared to order. I also enjoy the potato salad, beans and coleslaw. All dinners include a slice of toast. This is a small family restaurant complete with Formica tables. Enjoy!

Big Daddy's was just okay, it was not bad, but was not good either. The meat was a little tough and the sauce lacked definition. The sides really all tasted the same, and was just a so-so dinning experience, I tried it, but don't think I would go back.

My first day in Houston, and I wanted some BBQ. Unfortunately, it was Sunday, and a lot of places were closed. Big Daddy's was open, so I tried it. I was the only one there when I arrived... not a good sign. The staff is friendly, but I wouldn't describe the barbecue as authentic Texas by any stretch. The ribs... More

Good value for money, but don't expect high quality food. Quite fat and average tasting. The place itself is quite depressing, located in an empty commercial zone. When I came in, saw the neon lights and only a couple of hobos having dinner, I decided to go for take away instead of staying !

Try the pulled pork sandwich, it is wonderful. The rest of their menu is good too. the sliced beef plate is definitelly worth the money.

We have been going to Big Daddy's on 290 for a while until it closed its doors. We moved and found this location on Westheimer. Out front is their trademark Big Daddy's Mystery Machine van. Inside are pictures and movie posters from the 60's and 70's. The menu is huge and takes up the whole wall. The staff is friendly... More
