“Good burger!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014 via mobile

Ate here for lunch while in town on business. Was looking for a place to celebrate National Hamburger Day and wanted something local. We took a chance on this place as one of my co-workers ate at a place in McAllen with the same name. We thought it was a chain. This place is not much to look at from the outside, especially being located with an express lube. The burgers were good and the staff was friendly. If you want a good burger, this place is OK and reasonably priced.

“Don't risk it!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013 via mobile

Everything about this place is dirty even the staff. They smell like they havent showered and deliver the food with sweat dripping off them. Not mention the ridiculous amount of demerits all the Big Daddys restaurants get.

“Big Daddy's on Central”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2012

The restaurant on Central has closed. There is a new one on Central. It has the same atmosphere and food as the one on Boca Chica. I love the food. The people are great. I was dismayed to find out it got a lot of demerits from Food 4 Thought. I hope that has been cleaned up. It's important to me. I'll go back as soon as I see an A rating.

“Great food, great atmosphere and worth a try”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2012

Tried their "Big Daddy" hamburger that came with thick-cut fries and a coke. Hamburger came on a grilled bun that was crisp and tasted great. Hambuger was crispy and flavorful. French-fries were thick-cut and not as crisp and flavorful as I'm used to. Many people at our table and everyone ordered something different and there were remarks that next time I should try the Mexican burger. Good, attentive service. A problem with ants crawling on the table and ants or bugs that looked like ants with silver wings flying around and landing on the table.
