I have been to Chef Daddys twice thus far and I LOVE IT! I have took the time to read a few of the reviews and I feel everyone has different taste buds so it's okay to have your opinion about what you like and don't. However, I must say in regards to those speaking about not enough seasonings & bland, must take into consideration as any chef would they are serving customers that also have restricted diets. As with any soul food restaurant or just as if you would visit the old country buffet or Golden Corral you have the option to season to taste. In my opinion the seasoning is just right. My mom is diabetic and my father has heart disease and I'd definitely recommend Chef Daddy's. Thanks for...  more>>

The pork chops was cooked in dirty grease. The greens wasn't done and I didn't like the Mac and cheese.

I heard so much about this place and came into town to try them and I wasn't please.. Turkey tip was dry, meatloaf was ok but bland, blackeye peas where seasoned well but not done, potato salad was sweet but good, mac n cheese is good but the green beans have a weird taste.. Banana pudding was nothing but pudding ( no cookies or banana). I don't know if I caught them on a bad day but you have to judge for yourself but I will not return. Good luck on your business and thank you for the experience..

They use what they call Chef Daddy's Love Rub made with his blend of spices measured just right so the food is seasoned just right so It's not salty or to bland or tasteless & there's free wifi for customers...
