The Review

  • The Good

    For fans of American pop culture, Big Daddy's will overwhelm you with diner vibes set in a funky 80's theme. Inside you'll find an explosion of nostalgia - from memorabilia splashed across the walls to classic television sitcoms playing in the background.

    Decorated with vintage tables and booths, this New York chain serves up all-day breakfast in Dubai specialties like pancakes, waffles and eggs, alongside comfort food faves like burgers, mac & cheese, fried chicken and candy-style shakes. Located in BurJuman, it's an epic blast from the past.

    It doesn't take much to love Big Daddy's retro atmosphere. Showcasing the best of pop culture from the hippie flower-power era to the 'Fresh Prince of Bel Air' days, there are conversation starters around every inch of the space. We couldn't help but appreciate the cool assortment of vintage items on display - from cereal boxes to celeb autographed photos.

    Nothing tops the quirky menu they've assembled, with many selections taking inspiration from classic TV shows, films and songs. We're talking items like 'The Breakfast Club' sandwich and 'Strawberry Fields Forever' cheesecake - it makes ordering a lot of fun! From design to concept, we think Big Daddy's is as unique as it gets.

  • The Bad
    We love the retro design of Big Daddy's, but the views outside are really unpleasant. Located in BurJuman, the diner faces one of the busiest roads in Bur Dubai so all you'll see is a constant stream of noisy traffic.

    Unless you're visiting the mall or live in the area, you probably won't be going out of your way to grab a meal here. Take note that the diner only offers delivery to Bur Dubai and Business Bay.
  • The Tips
    If you're a fan of retro arcade games, you can play for free at Big Daddy's with over 500 classic games on offer near the entrance. Take note that they also host birthday parties and other special events. If you want to avoid Bur Dubai traffic, we recommend coming by Metro to the BurJuman station - the diner has a roadside entrance just a few minutes away.

    Don't leave without trying their 'Dazed and Confused' burger featuring beef bacon, fried egg, hash browns and cheese. Need a sugar rush? You'll want to order a 'Frozen Hot Chocolate' as well. For unique breakfast in Dubai options, this joint is famous for their signature fried chicken and waffles - an American food specialty.
