Eh! I wasn't real impressed... I've only eaten there once though so maybe it was just a one time problem. I had a burger and fries basket and the burger patty came out just caked in black pepper! Bleh! Gross! And for the record, I love black pepper, just not caked on my burger patty! Completely ruined the experience for... More

There's something here for everyone in the family. We came here for the burgers and ended up with a new go to location. The staff were all friendly , the portions were good so be prepared with an appetite when you decide to come here. You will not be disappointed.

I have frequented Big Daddy's for a few years now and I have my picture on the wall for the Burger Challenge. The food here is fresh and delicious, it will not destroy your wallet and the staff are attentive and courteous! If you love Burgers this place is a must! They also have great Omelets in the mornings.

I have visited Duluth many times and when you search for best burger this comes front and center. Out of the way of the Canal Park crowds this is a hidden gem. The burgers are awesome and you may want to tell them to go light on the fries because the portion is huge! Great friendly staff!

I had the olive burger which was a lot better than Anchor Bar's, but as far as price is concerned, you get a better quality burger for half the price at Anchor. I'd love to try the breakfast soon.

The place is a destination for a great meal at a great price. I had breakfast there a couple months ago and lunch this past weekend. They offer generous portions in addition to the awesome value and great food. They're locally famous for their burgers but they offer some variety that I am unable to evaluate. Once I find a...

Loved this place! Their Cream Cheese, green olive burger was very tasty! French fries were home made. Staff was very friendly. In a little strip mall on Piedmont. Will definitely return.
