Well, ripping off the tourist is one thing but a restaurant that does bad things to its regulars will soon be gone. We ordered take out, a slab of ribs with two sides, slaw and stew.
When we opened our dinner the ribs were swimming in sauce. When we bit into our dinner we soon discovered the reason for all the sauce. The ribs were burned, fat, and thoroughly dried out. They were so tough I could not even chew them. The stew turned out to be baked beans swimming in sugar. The cold slaw was acceptable, nothing great. The bread was a disappointing loaf bread. The tab was $30. I could have just chewed the money and gotten just as much nourishment and pleasure from it. When we called to speak to the owner about our experience, he said “got a receipt?” Of course he failed to provide one with our cash purchase.
I got the rib tip plate with two sides fried okra and fried zucchini with cornbread don't even know where to start the rib tips was 90% cartilage and some bones the little bit of meat that was on there tasted a few days old. Zucchini with and deep-fried burnt on the outside still cold on the inside same with the okra and you could taste the freezer burn. The corn bread was super Saudi on the outside but then kind of rock hard still on the inside $20 for one person will not go back rude individuals working except for the gentleman

i went there with some friends to see if Daddy D'z was better than Fatt Matts. I ordered the smoke turkey with potato wedges and macaroni and cheese. our food arrived and as we took our first bites we saw a HUGE R A T run inside the restaurant. the r a t knew where it was going so it was obviously used to going in and out of the place. that pretty much spoiled my appetite. and i'll be sticking with fatt matts from now on.

The food is the worst bbq I tasted in along time. The place is a shack ! If you like alot of bbq sauce this is not the place, & by the way, the sauce is bland. The food was lukewarm, and the corn bread was tasteless. I was very dissapointed with this place, especally with the reviews. They did not have any beef ribs for people who do not eat pork . I will not go back nor recommend this place.

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.

Love the uniqueness of this place. The windows need washing. I had a pork sandwich which arrived on a cold bun with a large plop of BBQ sauce on it. I had cake for dessert and it was dry and old.
My husband says the wings he had ranked above most others. They had a smokey taste he liked. We will go back for the wings.

Daddy D'z is a great looking place. It's divey and smells like a good BBQ place, but it is all just sweet and not really smokey at all. I have only been there a couple of times, so maybe I am not right, maybe they were just havin a couple of bad days, but it doesn't taste like the delicous BBQ I grew up with here in the south.

I lived in Atlanta in 2005 and once I discovered DD's, it would be fair to say that I took up a residency there before I left. If you can get over the less than attractive exterior, then you are in for a treat with this decidedly unpretentious BBQ shack.
The staff were always friendly and the fact that they often sold out of their fare tells you enough. Any friends that visited me were promptly taken to DD's and no complaints received. I myself will be back in Atlanta in mid-April 07 for a few days.. a visit or two to DD's is guaranteed. Feast well my chums.
