Actual Review written 6/11/2011 Yelp Review by Yvonne M

Perfect Venice Beach food! funnel
I ordered the fish tacos, onion rings with fries and funnel cake.
The fish tacos were huge! I made 4 tacos out of two. They were perfectly crisp and totally passed my taco test.
Onion rings were great but the fries, not so much.
Now to my favorite part, the funnel cake! DELICIOUS. That's all you really need to know.

I heard the pizza was amazing and would also really love to go back to try their apple fries and deep fried oreos.
Can you say fat girl? ;)

Big Daddy and Sons was the perfect end to our beach day at Venice Beach. Starved, my boyfriend and I were pulled in to this joint by the decor and variety of food. Burritos, pizza, tacos, hotdogs, you name it. Plus an assortment of desserts which I unfortunately didn't get to but everyone around me was munching down on a funnel cake so I bet they were awesome..There was a sign that read "WROLDS BEST FUNNEL CAKE" so I guess it really must be out of this world good..Haha. Plus..oreo stuffed donut?! Gimme.

But here's what we munched on. I got an LA Dog and two fish tacos-about eight bucks total. The LA Dog was simple but probably the best hot dog I've ever had and I don't even know why. It had a thin piece of bacon wrapped around the dog and was covered in caramelized onions and BBQ sauce. YUM. My fish tacos were good..they're better at Rubio's but I'm not complaining.

My boyfriend got a double cheeseburger and he says that it was AMAZING. They used cabbage instead of lettuce which was a little strange. Not sure if that's their thing or if they ran out of lettuce. The burger was greasy and delicious-a perfect boardwalk meal, only  or 8 bucks for a combo.

We are definitely coming back on our next trip to Venice Beach.

Best Pizza in Venice!
by AndrewB
May 25, 2009

This is the best place to eat at Venice Beach. Not only are the prices decent, but the food is amazing! Two adults and four kids all ate for about $20.00. We ate here for Memorial Day, and there was a lot of people in line. We decided that since there were a lot of people waiting, it must be a good place to eat. We were right! The line went fast, and the service was fast! The cheese pizza was good and the pesto pizza was amazing! We also tried the strawberry funnel cake and peach lemonade, all of which were good. I will definitely eat here every time I visit Venice!

Pros: Excellent food at an excellent price!

We welcome your review on the following websites:


Perhaps you might remember our previous restaurant, the ever popular "Larry Parker's Beverly Hills Diner" We were famous for the Haagen-Dazs milkshake that John Travolta ordered in the movie "Pulp Fiction" and Drew Barrymore's favorite vegetarian dishes and maybe having something for everyone.

Our Motto
If it don't make you proud,
Don't serve it to the crowd!!!

We believe in great food and the unexpected delights of quality for a good price. Our grilled potatoes served with grilled onions and peppers and fresh tomatillo salsa is only $1.00. For $1.00 you can also get a hot dog dipped in BBQ sauce with grilled onions and peppers. You haven't had Calamari as tasty as ours. Our Double Cheeseburger with fresh cut fries and a 20 oz. Soda is a favorite on the beach for $6.50.

We dip our Hot Dogs and Sausages in our own Smoky Sweet Mississippi style BBQ sauce and cover them in Grilled onions. Our Chili is made fresh right here!

Check out our handmade surfboard tables. They are so unique and popular we sell those, too! They make great artwork for your walls!

Also, check out our extensive collection of rare Beatles Videos that are for sale.

Party planning, themes, beach birthday parties, gift baskets, great food 365 days a year. Right Here... Rain or shine we stay open. You can always get a piece of fresh pizza for $1.00. Fresh pizza dough, sauce, and we shred the cheese right here fresh!

Wise Man changes his mind Many times....
As we gather new information we must change our decisions and conceptions....

So, at age 60, I have new energy and new life. Healthy herbs and Vegetarian Foods have always been interesting to me. I had a RAW meal that made me want to go back to Leaf Cuisine in Culver City. Debbie and I went back for every meal for two months straight. In the last year I lost over 60 pounds, I gained energy and strength to start up a new food distribution business. I now sell the Young Thai Coconuts to RAW Living Cuisine Restaurants and healthy minded people that have discovered the health benefits of Young Thai coconuts.

Here are a few links to go on this adventure Debbie and I are on.....

This is the past and the future of Food.

Please live as long as you can So we can enjoy our friendship with you! The more Raw Vegetarian food you eat the better your health will get. The more meat you eat the more disease you will get. I firmly believe this.

Dairy, Meat, Sugar, White Flour products and any processed foods are not helping our health.

Check out this Concept and Enjoy Life as long as you can.

Also, try Young Thai coconuts

They are amazing for your well being. Click here for more information.
