I prefer the one on the UWS because they are more friendly than this location and are careful with how they cook their food. I say this because on friday april 22nd at night between 7 and 8 pm. Me and my friends were seated at the 2nd

I love this place. Well, I particularly love their cheese tots and the fact that I can get them after a night out, at 4 am.

Things I don't love - it's a nut free zone! Such a shame because when I look at the delicious milkshake menu I

Pros: Many menu options

Cons: Nut-free

The atmosphere is what sealed the deal with me. Very retro but in a cool way, not contrived as you would think. Signed posters adorn the walls and fifties memorabilia occupy your gaze if the company you keep bores you.

The food is good, service friendly. The tater tots brought me right back to high school (in a good way). Only downside is it is a bit overpriced.

Aside from the appeal of eating at a homey diner on Park Avenue South, the main draw at this joint is the frozen hot chocolate - a big, slurpy shake-like concoction with bits of chocolate chips, tons of whipped cream and chocolate sauce

I love Big Daddy's. I take my kids here all the time. The Burgers are great and the shakes are awesome (they use real haagen dazs ice cream). They always make my kids feel special and they love the balloons and tattoos. Service is

We were hungry and as I am pregnant I fancied some french fries and a burger. We almost went to L'Express, (wish we had now!) but walked past Big Daddy's Diner. We had eaten there before about two years ago and thought it was ok then!

Ugh! I've had it with this place. The food is okay, it's ridiculously over priced though. I mean, $10 for a turkey sandwich and I have to pay extra for fries? Come on! \r

This is a cute place with typical diner food that definitely hits the spot. The service is friendly but a little on the slow side. I have never ordered delivery but having the option is a plus! One of my favorite things about this place is the name =)

My friend and I had a lunch at BigDaddy's, and at the end of the meal I noticed this small insect on my plate. I showed it to the waiter, who called the manager right away. The manager apologized and offered me two $5 coupons to the place

The Yogi Bear Smoothie is the best smoothie ever. The berry berry pancakes were delish!! the waitress was super friendly and helpful with helping us choose what to order. I'd come back every weekend for brunch!

Went for early dinner on a Sunday, place was half empty but still took 30 minutes for a burger which was overdone and terrible. The rest of our food wasn't much better. Note to the owner, please bring back Chango!

I went here for brunch a few weeks ago and the service was awful, taking over 2 hours just for coffee and eggs. A few days later I decided to give the delivery a shot and see if it was better than the service. I ordered a simple salad

Just got back from the WWE Monday Night Raw party at the recently opened Big Daddy's Diner on Park Avenue South. What an experience! The food was great, but was pleasantly overshadowed by the rabid atmosphere of NYC's wrestling fanatics.

I can't begin to describe how bad this place is. Decor is great, very cute (albeit unoriginal), but the food was TERRIBLE and outrageously priced. I had a cheeseburger that tasted like it'd been cooked 6 hours ago and then reheated in
