Our Story

Big Daddy’s Diner is family owned and opened in 2004.  We are located at 1705 James Canyon Hwy 82 in Cloudcroft, NM.   Big Daddy’s humble beginning helped mold it in what it is today and started with one room dining area seating about 40.  After expanding twice the diner now features the main dining area as well as two party rooms.  Total seating capacity is approximately 140.  The diner is open 7 days a week: summer hours are from 7 am til 9 pm; winter hours are 7am til 8 pm. 

We can host special events: rehearsal dinners, meetings, reunions, etc.  We also cater events small and very large.  If there is no available parking in front of the diner you are welcome to park next door in front of the Alta Vista Motel.


Menu includes our famous mesquite wood cooked BBQ, Grilled Pork Chops , Rib-Eye Steaks, T-Bone steaks, aged and cooked the way you like them.  Big Daddy’s features a full menu that caters to just about everybody even the kiddos.

At Big Daddy’s Diner we provide an atmosphere of the cowboy heritage while striving to cook up the best grub around.
