After a recent renovation and grand reopening, Fat Daddy’s Smokehouse BBQ in Kihei, offers tender, delicious BBQ served hot and fresh in this newly rejuvenated location.
The dining room is open and inviting with many wooden accents. This new refined barnyard feel is complete with casual dining inside and an extended area on the mauka side of the restaurant. It’s perfect for families and if you’re craving some BBQ after a day at the beach this will likely satisfy those tangy/spicy cravings. Located facing the Foodland side of the “Triangle” in Kihei, this is more of a casual dining experience. You could wear shorts, t-shirts, slippers and feel right at home. Upon entering you are greeted with a big smile and friendly service. Get there early and you won’t have to wait too long for a table.
Open daily from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. the menu is extensive and includes items that can be ordered ala carte or as complete plates. The ala carte items include BBQ Chicken, Burnt Ends, TX Hot Links, Pulled Pork, Brisket, Ribs and a sampler plate that includes all 6 meats, cornbread and 2 large sides. The ala carte items are sold by weight (ex. 1 lb, 1/2 lb. and full or half a bird/rack). The dinner plates, on the other hand, feature one main, come with a choice of 2 sides and the option to upgrade and add to your plate for an additional charge. It may seem confusing just ask the waitstaff to explain it to you and let them know what you are looking for; they can best recommend how to order. Dinner plates range from $15.50-$18.50.
Overall, the flavors, quality, excellent service and affordable prices would definitely warrant a return. If you are seeking good quality BBQ and don’t want to do it yourself this is a great place to stop in, enjoy a filling, tasty and delicious meal. I look forward to visiting Fat Daddy’s Smokehouse again.
