I grew up eating burgers and fries, so my tastebuds are pretty discerning on this topic. Last time I visited the Daddy's UES my burger was juicy, hot and satisfying. I like cheese, and they generously gave me cheese, the bun was soft and my tots were perfectly cooked, steaming on the break. I brought my mother with me and she squealed in nostalgic delight at first sip of her apparently authentic strawberry shake--the older crowd knows what they like in this department. Way to go Daddy's! The whole family was bouncing in our booth to the tunes. We had a great time!

Went for breakfast. There were screaming kids everywhere, the service was slow and poor, and the food was over priced. There are much better options in the neighborhood. Wont be going back.

We live in the neighborhood and were very happy when this diner opened. Its a great place to take kids, but the food is not great. The food is too greasy and for the prices the food is not good quality. The hamburgers are greasy and not high quality. Fries and Tater tots are greasy and seems like all the food is just not fresh, just cooked frozen food. I rather spend less money and go to the more traditional diners in the neighborhood.

I loved my visit here, I had a chicken sandwich and it was the best chicken sandwich I had ever had. The place was full and there were quite a few tables with kids but all in all it was a good atmosphere. My milkshake was amazing, when we come back to NYC I would visit again.

Service was friendly but still managed to be slow. The food was lousy at best although the shake was pretty good. The place was filled with kids screaming and blowing hornes and whistles so even if the food was good and/or reasonable it wouldn't have been worth it. I love tater tots and they used such a cheap brand that it wasn't even as good as the stuff they serve in school cafeterias.

I can not believe the prices here.. Are they crazy, it is a diner.. I really am surprised they have lasted so long. It seems some people's greed wins over good business sense.. I have spoken to so many people in the neighborhood who all agree if they prices were more reasonable, they would be there all the time.

The good: Very good burger & a good salad The subpar: $40 dollars for a burger, salad, and a beer Enjoyed the food. The service was fine. But for the money, there's better options.
