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.

We’re about a month out from summer. That means you’ve still got time for spring cleaning!

Lexi Grant, an operations manager at Well-Paid Maids, shared her go-to spring cleaning tips with WTOP News. Step one? Declutter. Get rid of items you don’t use, find space for items that need a home and organize those areas.

Then, it’s time to dust. Lexi starts with high-touch surface areas (think: refrigerator, dishwasher, counters, microwave). One area she sees often neglected is the bedroom — and it makes sense. Heavy furniture is difficult to move around, but it’s important to really get in there so dust doesn’t affect your sleep.
