Fat Daddy’s Opens at 221 Upshur St, NW in Petworth

This was a pleasant surprise. While Fat Daddy’s bills itself as serving ‘Breakfast, Fried Chicken, Seafood & Sandwiches’, this is most definitely not a take out space. It is casual on the inside, but like it’s owner Jeff, it’s got lots of charm. The restaurant opened up last Sat. and was named by Jeff’s 2 year old son. A few of the items of the menu are named after Jeff’s family. I nearly wept at the site of the breakfast menu:

Belgian Waffle, French Toast and Hot Cakes as well as Breakfast Sandwiches all for between $2.25 and $5.25. Other items you’ll find on the menu are Chicken Wings, Meatloaf, Chicken, a variety of Seafood, Burgers & Sandwiches, Subs (hot and cold), Salads as well as a variety of sides including collard greens, cornbread, yams, french fries, mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables and more. It was awesome to see such reasonably priced fare. When’s the last time you saw a hamburger for $2.25?

They are open 7 days a week Mon. – Thurs. 6am – 11pm, Fri. & Sat. 6am – 1am and Sun. 6am – 7pm.

The space is a bit spartan but comfortable. There is a tv and newspapers plus wifi is coming soon. All in all this looks like a great addition to the neighborhood.
