Omnivore - Daddy D'z feeds the Browns
I picked up a late dinner from Daddy D'z (264 Memorial Dr., 404-222-0206) in Grant Park Monday night. Owner Ron Newman pointed at a billboard across the street that advertises the new film, Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns. The movie includes scenes filmed at Daddy D'z last year.
Newman was a little bummed that his popular barbecue joint is renamed "Bibs and Ribs" in the movie. No kidding. What a repulsively cutesy name. I haven't seen the movie, but I've read a few reviews. If they are accurate, Daddy D'z is a much better experience than Bibs and Ribs. In other words: the movie appears to be bombing.
