The bbq was just okay, nothing special. Ribs were ordinary, bland spices. BBQ sauce slightly better than ketchup. Burnt ends a bit tough, not particularly flavorful. Blue cheese slaw was good. Not worthy of the high praise on TripAdvisor. We don't plan to return.

I had the pulled pork and husband had smoked meatloaf. Both were excellent and they have a few local beers

Sorry, but portions were small and overpriced! Would never return as the food options at Safeway across the street are better. $20 for 6 fatty ribs & fries is outragous. At least service was good.

I didn't expect my passion for BBQ would be gratified in Maui, especially since I'm not fond of Kahlua. But who thought we'd find tips as succulent as you'd find in the best joints in KC Austin, or Memphis on the beach in Kihei. High...More

I really do not like to leave bad reviews. We decided to give them a try after reading other reviews both good & not so good. I always try to lean toward the better ones as we all have different taste. I’m sorry to say...More

We stopped at Fat Daddy’s twice during our recent visit to Kihei. This unassuming barbecue stop had the best smoked chicken, with homemade barbecue sauce. Great service, without a long wait. Make sure to tr6 this spot...but go early, as it gets busy!
