This is where the Bad Daddy’s chain began. We have really enjoyed the Birkdale and Mooresville locations but this was our first time at the original Charlotte location. Same great food and beer. Even better atmosphere. Bad Daddy’s burgers are excellent at all locations. Delicious...More

This is the second time we have had lunch here. The food is outstanding, which means you might have a wait. The service was good and the food was delivered pretty quickly. The tater tots rock! We will continue to come here for lunch.

Not sure, but I doubt it. I ate the East Ave location & it's small. Can't vouch for other locations.

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!
