I have eaten this quality bbq in restaurants around the country, with exactly the same sauces. Nothing wrong with it, but could be anywhere. Lots of mid-quality chains in US have these sauces and this quality meat. Didn't skimp on the meat or the fries, so if you are hungry, ok, but don't expect something special.

There were 7 in our group. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was wonderful. Even though we had a larger group of people, the service was great and quick.

I had this place planned as soon as we knew we were going to be in Fairbanks, and good gravy they did not disappoint! Several of our cruisetour companions joined us, and no one left hungry or sorry they went. Just Awesome.

Soooo up here in interior Alaska after tourist season ends in September, it gets increasingly difficult to find not only good food but open restaurants. I'm sure you can imagine my southern surprise when I happened upon a restaurant in Fairbanks, Alaska promising Carolina style barbecue and all the fixings! *insert disappointing horn sound* This was NO North Carolina BBQ!...

Our dinners were good. I had the baby back ribs and my husband the brisket. The cole slaw was ok, the mac and cheese not. I have taste but the creamed corn was fantastic. Our waitress was good and attentive. I would say this is a good place to go for an average meal. Great for families.

As we're the only customers waiting at the time we were told, they'll be with us in a few minutes. As they told us twice after waiting and and watching all the empty tables, we wondered why we're waiting. As two couples walk in they quickly offer one couple a table. Seeing that, we just left the area. Not dealing... More

Eating at Big Daddy's BBQ proved to be enjoyable. The food is cooked well, our experience proved that the brisket was the best. The pricing is decent and the portion sizes are good. If you are in the mood for BBQ while visiting Fairbanks Big Daddy's is definitely the place to visit.

I had a very bad craving for some Southern Syle BBQ.So we decided to give Big Daddy's another try. Unfortunately the food and service is "still terrible." The food was very cold and bland. I'm from the South and have never ever tasted such bland brisket and collard greens. Big Daddy's chefs/cooks need to invest in some Lawrys seasoning salt... More

We ate at Big Daddy's three times in three days. This was partly due to the weather and this restaurant was one of the few that was open (and within walking distance to our hotel). The food is priced well and is tasty. We did have the best waitress ever (Maureen, I think). When we came back the 2nd time... More

This was where we went for dinner just before leaving from our vacation, heading home to Vermont. I wish we had stopped in sooner which would have allowed us to make more than one visit. The food is absolutely delicious, the daiquiri's were tasty and plentiful, and the service was very attentive and informative. The atmosphere is fun and enjoyable... More
