I have been to Fat Daddy's a few times. The food is excellent, and the portions are large. I have never had a bad meal at Fat Daddy's. Seems to be a popular place as they are busy.

My husband and I used to eat here quite often. The original owner sold the business to someone else. This was the first time we have eaten at this establishment since the new owner took over. The buffet is $12. The food has been on the buffet table for too long. All dried up and hard. The potato salad used... More

You won't go away hungry from Fat Daddy's. The portions are large from the menu items and the buffet is, well, it's a buffet. They have a little too sweet BBQ sauce, but I'm sure others find it just right. Decorated with license plates, and trophies from all over, it's a rustic, clean setting.

This is a quaint little restaurant with the best beef brisket in the Rio Grande Valley. The prices are very reasonable. They offer a buffet lunch and takeout.

The sausage is great,so are the ribs. Brisket isn't bad either, but I needed extra sauce. Fries are just frozen, pass them and get beans and the yummy Coke slaw! Fair price, I'll go next time I'm here.
