Big Daddy Jay's

 Big Daddy Jay’s All -American BBQ : Hugged by smoke, licked by fire and kissed by sauce… that’s how Big Daddy Jay does it!



If you’re one of those adventurous foodies who are always in search for new gastronomical havens here in the metro, I’m pretty sure you’re gonna love this!  

 Recently we discovered this new gem just a few steps away from Araneta Center…  Located  along 17th Ave corner P.  Tuazon,  is where you’ll find BIG DADDY JAY’S All – American BBQ …  The place which serve the tastiest juicest fall off the bone ribs in this side of the planet!    

 Believe me azzzzz in!!!! You have to take your barkada with you!!!!!

Honestly I was hesitant at 1st and it’s been a long time since I went on a food review due to my busy sked. But since my photography teacher and fellow WIM writer sir James Nicolay blogged about it and told me how great BIG DADDY JAY’S All – American BBQ was… I got really convinced that I had to try and blog about it as well!!

Anyway, allow me to tell you about our recent visit at BIG DADDY JAY’S All – American BBQ to also give you an idea on what to expect when you visit!


 the menu!

I’m not very familiar with the common prices for ribs but according to Sir James, their prices are way more affordable  and better than the others!  A full rack is good for 6 hungry tummies, so that would cost around 100+ per head! Not bad!




1st: You have to… no.. YOU MUST ORDER their pasta!!

BIG DADDY JAY’S Tomato Basil pasta compliments the ribs perfectly! For me it serves as a support/side dish for the super flavorful ribs! It may not have any meat in it, but it’s tasty as it is!




 They also got 2 kinds of chicken wings but I prefer their Buffalo Style chicken wings more! Sweet, savory with a really nice crispy yet tender texture with each bite!



And now may I present to you the star of the show!!! Tadah!!!!!
