what people are saying about us

Thank you so much for the amazing food and service at our wedding! We have heard so many great things and had tons of guests wanting to know who our caterer was.
— Happy bride
We were staying at Walking Stick Adventures Farm and visited Fireside Winery and had handmade pizza from Phat Daddy’s along with our wine. We love these local venues and love Phat Daddy’s food. Their margarita pizza is awesome!
— Review on Tripadvisor
Excellent. They catered a family wedding. The food was excellent. Marsala chicken was grilled and then presented in an outstanding sauce, the grilled beef was even better. The potatoes were A big hit. The grilled veggies were fresh, seasonal and delicious, the same for the green salad with house dressings. The service was prompt and friendly. A guest who is a professional chef was impressed and so were we. Many guests complimented the meal. So glad we chose them. Great job and will use again.

The Kitchen


A chef quality restaurant in small town Iowa still seems out of place, but it’s getting more common all the time. Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids turns out some talented grads in it’s culinary arts program. Such is the case with Phat Daddy’s in Marengo.

Greg McCallum

CHEF

Greg came to Iowa from the Chicago area in the 80's to attend University of Iowa for an art degree. He fell in love with the Iowa countryside, and never left. Greg has transcended his love for art into his love for food, and believes strongly that cooking is an art form. He has been cooking for 25 years and says it never feels like a job to him. Greg says, "P.H.A.T. Daddy's is a restaurant of creativity that's always going on. From designing our sauces, catering, specials and brunch. Plus, the place is very funny, so there is daily laugh therapy." Greg displays some of his artwork in the restaurant and loves the feedback. He is looking forward to doing cooking shows in the future, as well as gaining national attention to our soon to be famous sauces, spices and dressings.
