Good food, building needs work
I decided to give Daddy D'z a shot for a late lunch today. I hadn't eaten since the night prior, and it was about 4pm, so I was relatively hungry.
I ordered a half slab of ribs, with two sides (mac and cheese as well as corn), and a chopped pork sandwich. The chopped pork sandwich was good, and if you like Georgia-style BBQ, you'll like the sauce as well. I got the hot varient, but they also offered a mild. The sandwich wasn't terrific due to the bun, it was just a generic run of the mill cold bun.
The ribs were delicious, although I did have two that were tough (seemed like they'd been smoking a bit too long.) I'm not much on Georgia-style sauces, but if you are - I'm sure you'll love them. They were tolerable to me, and that's better than 95% of the other sauces I've had around here. :)
All in all, I rate it fairly middle of the road - not due to my personal differences in terms of BBQ styles, but because of the averageness of the food. I'd actually prefer to rate it between average and recommended. If they pick a different kind of bun for the chopped pork sandwich, I'd really like that. That said, I'll give it a recommended rating due to the friendliness of the staff, which pushed it over average.
Oh yes, and the sides. The mac and cheese was excellent, had a bit of kick, I was VERY impressed with this. Corn was nothing to write home about, seemed like the kind you get out of a can.
Last minor complaint. I love the old-style ""shack"" feel of the place, and the smells, but it really could do with some maintenance. The windows are opaque from grime/crud, the front door feels like it was going to fall off, and some of the chairs had padding ripped off. Things like this need to be improved, as it gives the impression of an unclean place.
