We went here twice for dinner, had a good experience both times. Had to return has my boyfriend wanted to get the burnt ends, which they had run out of the first time we visited. I would definitely recommend the burnt ends if you visit, as well as the baked beans! Both were delicious. Loaded baked potato and the macaroni... More

We (a couple) visited Fat Daddy's Smokehouse on a Sunday afternoon at 4 pm, just when the place opened. We had a beer (bikini blond) and a shandy (beer mixed with lemonade) and shared a plate with burnt ends, ribs and local salad and coleslaw as side orders. As desert I order the pulled pork :) The food was delicious!... More

Lucky we got there in time, about 7:15, and only had to wait about 10 minutes to be seated. Their "rush" starts at sunset but they are usually out of "burnt ends" about then as people drop in all afternoon for them. We got the ribs but they were out of them by the time we left. Meaty, delicious, juicy... More

Went here for dinner. Saw it on Diners, Drive ins, and Dives, looked good on there. The food is fantastic! Get the burnt ends plate and add ribs. All the same does were really good. Device was adequate. Not really fast, not really slow, but so worth any wait you have.

We ate here twice in October 2016. Lots of food of great BBQ. It is a local laid-back restaurant. Loved the food.

First place my wife and I had dinner during our vacation to Maui Hawaii, great BBQ and service was good. We got the sampler platter that was pricey but worth it because if you got 2 meat choices a piece for 2 people it would have cost more or about the same. Meat entree's were good even though the side... More

The food and atmosphere were really good. Everything has good flavor and good sized portions. Servers are friendly and pretty good. Reasonably priced for Maui.

We went here on the recommendation of our 16 year old grandson who had come on on previous visit with his parents. We weren't really expecting much given most 16 year old boys seem to think anything edible is great but we were pleasantly surprised. The service was warm and friendly and the portions were reasonably sized for the price.... More

This was our third yearly visit to Fat Daddy's. They have very good BBQ, and are a nice chance to the fancy restaurants we visited all week. The blue cheese coleslaw was a nice change from traditional coleslaw. I tried the pulled pork. It was very good, but I have had better. The margarita was good, but extremely small. I... More
