Got the fried chicken salad and daughter got the bbq salad, My salad had zero taste and my lettuce was not cut up at all, and my chicken was not cooked all the way. My daughter found bones in her salad. Good Job Dad's don't think I will Be back.

At Dad's the food is soo good, the staff is friendly, and the facility is clean and comfortable. I have no complaints, and have visited several times this summer.

just went to dads for lunch. the food was good but when i went to the bathroom to wash my hands, the waiter came out of the bathroom stall and since i was using the sink he couldn't wash his hands. i followed him out of the bathroom and he went straight back to handling utensils and waiting on customers. still not washing his hands.

I plan on relocating to Rainbow City very soon to open a BBQ restaurant. After reading the maggot review I know I won't have competition. Being in the food service industry for years,there is no excuse what so ever for a maggot being served in anything.

I love going to rainbow City Dad's! I think it's really good food and it's a good, clean place. I read the review about the potato salad incident and I've asked them before, and their potato salad isn't made at the restaurant so I don't think they are to blame.. I've never had any problems! Anyways.. it's yummy!

Never will i ever eat in this restaurant again after my wife spit a maggot out on her plate which was found in her potato salad hopefully this restaurant will no longer exist soon
