What’s up brunchers? This past Sunday we attended Big Daddy’s Bottomless Brunch! Here’s what we thought!
Food 9/10- Upon viewing their menu, my mouth watered! I knew that I would be ordering a ton of food with my friends based on everything looking so tasty and authentic, and that’s exactly what we did! We started with the Pretty Meg Wings, Lucifer’s Mussels and the Jefferson Parish Blackened Gator. They did not disappoint! Probably the best wings I’ve had for brunch ever, and their sweet mango-chipotle sauce was a real hit. The Gator tastes exactly like how I had it in New Orleans, and the sauce with the mussels was fire…literally! For the entrees, I chose the Omelette Jambalaya and the Vieux Carre (Pork & Waffles). Both dishes were huge and was totally unique to anything I’ve experienced. Only knock was that they were out of Waffles so I had to get biscuits instead, and they were a little dry. Some order dishes ordered were the Shrimp & Grits, King Burger and the best option available, Red Garland’s Chicken Fried Steak & Eggs. Oh. Em. Gee.
Drinks 9/10- Their quality drinks definitely matched their food! Bloody Mary was well-dressed, thick, tasty and packed a punch when it came to the amount of vodka in there. Their Mimosa, although couldn’t be spotted on using real juice, tasted well and had the perfect ratio (topped off the drink with more champagne too), however I’m not a fan of ice in the mimosa. Their Screwdriver was potent, as you can faintly taste the heavy amount of vodka in there masked with their orange juice. The drink that put them over the top however: was their Hurricane! A New Orleans staple, this deceiving drink was overloaded with rum and masked with sweet juices, grenadine and pieces of fruit. Was inconsistent for each one (one had too much grenadine, too sweet, etc), but definitely a game-changer and pleasant surprise!
Experience 7/10- With what was an impressive showing on their food and bottomless drinks, they fell short on the service. Took a while to sit even when we made reservations, and also took a while for our waitress to get to us to put in drink and food orders. The place was packed and when it slowed down the service definitely got better. As for the venue, a casual Louisiana vibe accompanied with live music and themed decorations make this an interesting place for a date or birthday brunch!
Deal 8/10- Massapequa has already some great brunch options, but they need to make room for Big Daddy’s as they are a force to be reckon with. A $15 Bottomless brunch option with a l carte menu options that are somewhat expensive but well worth the money puts this brunch as a great deal! Would not change anything but the service!
We thank Big Daddy’s for having us and look forward to brunching with them in the future! Stay tuned for more reviews for Bottomless Brunch through Long Island! 🥂
