In Charlotte for a wood carving show and met my sons at Bad Daddys for lunch on a Sunday. Planned an early lunch, but the place was delayed in opening for an half hour for some reason, so the crowds were gathering outside so when the doors opened 8 tables filled up in seconds, then the church goers started to...

The food was fantastic. We enjoyed everything we tried. The fried pickles and the Thai wings were great. The burgers were amazing, but even better was the service. We enjoyed it so much we had to go back the next day!

We found this place on trip advisor and decided to take a shot. Glad we did because it was totally worth it. The burgers are pretty amazing and the bad daddy's sauce that comes with all of them is very addictive. Service was great and several craft beers on tap. Restroom needs some attention bad.

The food is always good. We go with people who are vegetarian and who are Atkins and everything in between. Something for everyone, and everyone is delighted. Service is attentive but not intrusive. Prices are reasonable given what you get.

Go here often! Great but kinda different burger choices! I usually get the Sam I Am burger which has a fried egg on it... it never disappoints! Tater tots are a must as well. Had the salad and it's delicious too. Usually lunch with a friend who is gluten free.. she says the chicken is great! Her sides usually are... More

My husband and I split an American classic burger, Parmesan french fries with aioli sauce. He enjoyed a classic chocolate malt well I had the Bad Daddy's beer. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner!

I know that I can count on my daughter to take us to really good places. I would have to say that this was a good place for a great burger and great tater tots. My only negative would be the music was a little bit too loud. However, I would definitely go back again.

The burger was very tasty, but the brioche bun couldn't handle the juice. Might try the Texas Toast next time. The fries were too greasy, asked the waitress for the tater tots instead.

Has a "neighborhood" vibe. Mostly millennials seemed to be in attendance; however, we didn't feel out of place( a couple of geezers). Attentive staff, but not overly so. The food was very tasty. I had a burger that was cooked like I requested with the toppings that the menu suggested. my better half had a salad that she said was... More

BAD is GOOD. Like when something is so outrageous you can't help but love it. That's the inspiration at Bad Daddy's. Here, the humble burger is given super star status. With premium beef, sizzled up hot on our grill, and surrounded with artisan ingredients, toppings, & condiments. If you aren't in the mood for beef, we have so many other options: from chicken to turkey burgers, black bean burgers to tuna burgers, not to mention the chopped salads and the full Create Your Own menu. Even if you have special dietary requests, like gluten free, we can accommodate. Looking for a cool place to hang out and grab a drink? With our award winning line-up of North Carolina craft beers and fresh squeezed cocktails, you are going to love this place!
