About Us


It all started around 30 years ago with a little place downtown called Lloyd’s Ribhouse. 

Lloyd and Fontella Henry come from generations of barbecuers. They opened the first Big Daddy’s BBQ on Garth Avenue in 2014, and since then they have been serving the Columbia community only the tastiest, most tender meats and sides.


What Our Community Says About Us

Very impressive what passion for bbq the owner of Big Daddy’s has. It was a pleasure to meet him and looking forward to my next visit.”

-Mark B.

“Big Daddy’s came through. Stopped here while briefly in town. Excellent BBQ. I loved my pulled pork sandwich and baked beans. Reasonable prices and friendly staff. If you’re in town and want some good BBQ, definitely stop at Big Daddy’s, you won’t be disappointed.”

-Alex M.

Awesome! Really nice people. Outside seating with blues in the stereo. Brisket sandwich was great and the sauce was delicious. Highly recommend this place.”

-David J.
