Fat Daddy’s Pizza in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, takes all your favorite guilty pleasures to the next level. Their handmade pizzas never fail to impress, often leaving everyone planning their next visit before finishing their meal. When you want a little something different, they can handle that, too. They have salad, oven-baked sandwiches, and calzones on the menu to shake it up a bit.

Beyond their decadent food, they are known for having the cheapest beer around and friendly service to boot. Upon arriving at their quaint eatery, located alongside Highway 98, you’ll get a warm welcome and an invitation to pour over the menu. Once you put in your order, you can get settled at your table, all of which are surrounded by TVs playing sports galore. For even more fun, jet over to the video games to kill time while waiting for the food to arrive.

They often get quite busy, especially during their lunch buffet and in the evening hours. Thankfully, they not only offer the ideal place to dine in but will also deliver to your home or hotel room. You just have to give them a ring when you’re ready to order and they will get started in creating all your selections.

Your newfound favorites on the menu include:

Garlic Breadsticks
Garlic Breadsticks are the absolute best way to whet your appetite and get ready for the main course. Their breadsticks start with a generous portion of pizza dough that gets topped with buttery garlic and Romano cheese. Once that’s baked bubbly and golden brown, they serve it with tomato and garlic butter for dipping.

Taco Pizza
The Taco Pizza is just one of their many incredible specialty pies on the menu, which come in small, medium, large, and personal sizes. This fan-favorite gets covered in black olives, taco meat, jalapeno peppers, and mozzarella cheese. Right before serving, they add shredded cheddar cheese, lettuce, and tomato to create just the right flavor profile.

Oven-Baked Meatball Sandwich
When you just want a taste of perfection, the Oven-Baked Meatball Sandwich will always come through for you. They make this masterpiece on a hoagie roll, filling it with onions, green peppers, meatballs, and mozzarella cheese. Then, they add tomato sauce and bake it until the cheese is melted and bubbling hot.

Cheese Calzone
If you’re in the mood for a pizza pocket to remember, order up the Cheese Calzone. This tantalizing dish starts with a circle of dough that’s filled with feta, cheddar, and mozzarella cheese plus a bit of tomato sauce. You can add up to five toppings of your choice for no extra charge or go big with many others if you’re willing to pay a bit more.

If you can manage to avoid filling up on all their tasty dinner fare, delicious dessert awaits. You can treat yourself to plain or strawberry cheesecake served by the slice to round out your meal. If you want to go all out, however, then only the Cinnamon Breadsticks will do. They are made from pizza dough, covered in cinnamon and sugar, then baked up right before getting cream cheese frosting over the top.
