Let me b a food critic right quick.... Yesterday, I went 2 a restaurant that I had so many high expectations 4.... but I was badly mistaken... The soul food joint Chef Daddy's get 2and 8 middle fingers.... Now 4 those who I've talked 2 abt the "chitterlings" errday as they advertise was stringy as fuk.... And 4 $10 bucks they gave me the bottom of the barrel the serving size was so small.... Oan.... Not 2 mention how they 4got a whole dinner that we paid 4 so now our other food is getting cold dats strike#2... then when I talked 2 the owner abt the disappointing portion of chitterlings and how they failed 2 complete my order and I'm having 2 wait another 20mins and also how I been waiting and anticipating for months on their food can they please pour off the majority of the juice dat was in this container and give me a Lil more chitterlings... This nigga told me he couldn't do dat after we just spent gud money in this joint I'm gud on chef daddy'sthe side dishes were nasty and the owner was just as nasty as their food.... only nice thing or person should i say was the young man on the register... I believe he understood where I was coming from... He kno they shady on DA meals dat place will Neva Eva Eva get my money

Too much food and it was delicious. Everyone should visit, at least, once.

I want to send a thank you to Terry and his co-workers for being such great entrepreneurs in the food industry. I have eaten at a lot of great restaurants throughout this country. I have a few special favorite dishes, and I am very picky about how they are prepared, but on the advice of a co-worker, i tried Chef Daddy's for one of my favorites (chitterlings). Now I am paying special attention to how clean they have to be before I even taste them. Before I taste them, I want to see how clean the person is that's cleaning them. Terry and Staff...you all have passed my requirements. I thank you all ! Now I don't mind driving from Bolingbrook into Chicago for at least 2 or 3 large orders of my favorite chitterlings from my favorite restaurant. The side dishes (Mac&Cheese, Greens, Blackeyed peas, Green Beans, Corn) and the other main dishes (Tips, Chicken, Turkey, Smothered Steak, just to name a few) is now a target on my list of favorite foods. THANK YOU CHEF DADDY'S and God bless this business and the staff. SEE YOU SOON !!!

Cornbread and mac n' cheese are off the hook! Freshly made mashed potatoes and flavorful greens have a kick, too. Haven't had a bad experience ever from the chicken, meatloaf, smothered pork steaks, etc. They even have oxtail and blackeyed peas. Awesome food and reasonably priced. Thank you Chef Daddy.

its actually 4.5!!! me and my mr came today for his prebday dinner after the autoshow. imma try to keep this short. as soon as we got off the train heading here you can smell bbq and food cooking from the corner of the playground. friendly staff (didnt meet alisa was told she comes in later but everyone was nice). got our food to go but i sampled before exiting and was pleased with the visual,aroma, and taste. got home, food faired extremely well back to the house and an extra plus when opening packages was STILL YUMMY SMELLING AROMAS COMING OUT. Everything was freshmade homemade our parents are chefs and believe me we know the difference. my mr said it was the best he has eaten in a looong time. he had pork steak,potato salad, macncheese. i had meatloaf, macncheese, candied yams. i bought 3 slices of the banana pudding cake, and a serving of peach cobbler. DELICIOUS!!!! so why not 5. because the 7pm close time is gonna make it hard for me and my family and relatives. its ok on occasion and for carryout, but i like dining in and going to establishments with dinner @8 or later. otherwise great food, great location, great prices. we will be back my mr wants to try porkchop and greens. you got 2new fans now from SOUTHSIDE! THANK YOU
