Enjoyed our dinner and especially the great margaritas. It's a casual place with quick, friendly service and a value-priced menu. Lots of choices (burgers, fish and chips, tacos etc).

We ate here a couple of times on our trip and it was good, relatively American food, with some local additions. If you want authentic Panamanian, this isn't the place, but good burgers and appetizers and the margaritas are delicious. For more authentic cheap food, El Sabroson was great and recommended to us by locals.

My wife and I had our wedding rehearsal dinner and it was amazing. Chef Chris did an amazing job with the menu. His sauces are great they go with everything. Everything was gluten-free and it was delicious. We have been here a couple of time and every time is good no matter what we order.

We ate here on a visit last year, and decided to try it again because we were looking for a less expensive place to eat. We weren't very impressed with the menu, which is mostly tacos, hamburgers, a few sandwiches, fish and chips, wings, and a few other entrees. We went for the fish and chips and the BBQ grilled...

My husband, daughter and I had dinner at Big Daddy's in early January. We had the house salad, BoomBom shrimp, and the pork barbecue sandwich. All were excellent. The owner came to our table and introduced himself, Chris from Kansas! He wanted to make sure all was well with our meal & we assured him it was. We'll definitely stop... More

Visited for the first time last week, after living in Volcan for a year and a half! The atmosphere was lively and fun, but not so loud that I couldn't enjoy time with my friend and catch up! Food was delish, been craving it again since went there! Management was friendly and service was great! Will look forward to next... More

In addition to being highly rated on TripAdvisor, Big Daddy's Grill was recommended by three different people in Boquete when I asked where I should eat. The food was good - I really liked the seasoned tortilla chips served before the meal. The atmosphere was cheery. The service was friendly but unbelievably slow by any standard. I didn't have anywhere... More
