Soooo Glad A Customer Recommended This ONE! – Was visiting from St. Louis [Oct. 2010] - honey, we didn't need ambiance; we needed to EAT. Whoever makes the smothered pork chops and the pound cake did an outstanding job. I was impressed how one guy didn't have enough money and was NOT told he had to put a side item back . . . that's usually how it goes in STL. Big Daddy was at the register; told us he credits his good business to his employees. I'd love to hear MY boss say that! We received a meat with 3 count them, THREE SIDES; washed it down with the Uptown tea - all for $7 - we just sat there and looked at each other - completely FULL!
It's all about soul food domination at this southwest Atlanta institution. – In Short
Some places get a steady stream of patrons with fancy furniture and nice napkins. Others get folks with perfectly-seasoned turkey wings and collard greens that taste better than your grandma's. This soul food shelter for SW Atlanta moms aligning against the kitchen falls proudly in the latter. Visually, the place is not much to look at. There's a table, a bench and a makeshift bar where people wait for meals. As a temptation-bonus, there is this partially glass-enclosed wall folks tend to hover around by the kitchen. They do that because baked chicken, ox tails and more sides than Piccadilly tease the senses from the other side.
Love the Peach Cobbler – Big Daddy's has very good soul food. There is no ambience whatsoever. But you will be too busy eating your fried chicken, collard greens, mashed potatoes, peach cobbler, and red velvet cake to notice your surroundings.
