"Cash Mob MKE" is a weekly event – dare we call it a movement – that encourages folks to order from the same place on the same day and/or evening. The goal is to provide the restaurant with a stellar, sellout night, and in return, we get a delicious meal made with local love. 

This week marks the 4th Cash Mob MKE and, so far, the results have been phenomenal. So let's do this again!

Cash Mob MKE takes place at Daddy's Soul Food & Grille, 754 N. 27th St., on Tuesday, Feb. 2 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. 

Bennie Smith opened his soul food buffet and restaurant in 2014 in the SOHI neighborhood. His inspiration came from two places: his desire to have a home for his already-established catering business and to celebrate fatherhood.

In January 2014, Smith's father was diagnosed with cancer, and he passed away that spring. Opening the restaurant was a dream shared by father and son.

For the past seven years, Daddy's has provided Milwaukee with some of the tastiest soul food in town, including smothered pork chops, BBQ ribs, meatloaf, fried chicken, mac 'n' cheese, greens, cornbread and more. They also have a meatless menu.
