Frequent diner of Big Daddy's, great food and great variety. The steak sub with Kelly's style cheese sauce is great. I usually get the sauce on the side and pour it over myself. I also recommend the chicken parmigiana. Mostly everything on the menu has been good. The fried dough bites are to die for as a desert. Small little... More

Our daughter lives near here and we ordered five pizzas for ten people having an outdoor supper. We had Cheese, Hawaiian, Everything, Big White, and Mucho Meaty. At the end of the meal, we had 1/2 cheese and 1/2 Meat left. I thought all the pizzas were very good except for the Meaty, which I had looked forward to. The... More

The pizza here is absolutely amazing. However they also do subs as well. They are packed with meat and toppings. You cannot go wrong.

I love Big Daddys and so do any one of my friends that try it. Everything is amazingly delicious!!!! I don't order pizza from anywhere else besides Regina, just to change it up. My faves: pizza, calzones, cheese stuffed pizza sticks, curly fries, dessert bites (Warning: Dangerously Addicting!), wings...gotta order them with the Buffalo honey BBQ sauce...it's the best wing...

This place has one of the best selections for slices of pizza I have ever seen.. They now start selling slices at 10:30 in the morning. However, I was with a friend and we decided to order a medium pizza with olives and fried eggplant. The pizza was reasonably priced. We both felt that our pizza truly delicious and cooked... More

I was staying at the Marriott Courtyard on Memorial. I was working in the room - catching up on Email and decided to order a pizza for lunch. The front desk crew recommended Big Daddy's. They were spot on when they told me I wouldn't be disappointed. I ordered the standard crust - not thin but not thick. Pepperoni, Mushroom,... More

Big Daddy's Pizza is in a Brighton neighborhood I visit a lot. I've stopped in at Big Daddy's three times, with the same experience each time. Good food, but horrendous service. When I last visited, a week ago, it was 7:30 p.m. and there were never more than three parties in the store. We ordered three basic subs, then waited... More

My daughter and I were shopping and all of a sudden we were starving, stopped in Big Daddy's not knowing anything about it, and loved it! Staff was friendly, food was soooo good. Simply ordered pizza and a salad. A couple of beverages. That's all we needed. It hit the spot! We will definitely be back with a larger crowd!... More
