Great choice of burgers and unique decor

Although Bad Daddy's is about on par with 5 guys (which is wonderful), they offer some very unique taste combinations and an interesting and eclectic décor.

I would try the Mex burger variation, it has a great flavor with the avocado, chiles and cheese. Also, their sweet potato fries are very good and sure not to disappoint.

Tried this place because Tripadvisor said it ranked 8 out of almost 2000 restaurants. Found it to be "just OK." The server asked us how we wanted out burgers. My wife says, "Well-done." The server says, "No pink in the center?" My wife says, "Yes." I say, "Medium." The server says, "warm pink inside?" I say, "Yes." Both burgers come... More

Near the best burger I have ever had, and I had never had one with buttermilk bacon. A cool spot and the food was great. The server didn't get the check right, but also didn't drop the burger bringing it to me. A good lunch idea.

very over rated. Not very high in quality or not much effort put in training in the kitchen. Place feels good. Then the food comes and you may as well be at some national Chain.

The Bacon burger was delicious, however the service was not great, the waiter didn't check on us after ordering and we had to get up to ask for the bill. The tables are very close together which is a bit uncomfortable and it seems a bit pricey for a burger. However the bacon burger was outstanding.

What else could you ask for? Both the airport and the East Blvd locations do not disappoint when it comes to the burgers - among the best I've ever had. Love the burgers with guacamole, mushrooms, bacon, and while I should probably get the side salad, I love the shoestring fries. Great atmosphere at East Blvd, whereas the airport is... More

I n Charlotte airport for 2 hour layover (Saturday 7:30pm - 9:30pm) and needed a place to eat. We found Bad Daddy's and glad we did! We did order the fried pickles and the manager stopped and asked how they were. We explained that they were on the salty side. He immediately took them of our check although I was... More

Getting lunch before a flight, great burgers, fries were amazing. For an airport eatery, this is a great place. Seating is limited and tight. staff was attentive and polite. Will eat here again when traveling through.

If you want to be called (profanity inserted here) by a busser this is the place for you! The busser was obviously having issues that day and somehow our table was his target.

Burgers (including a great black bean burger!) are awesome. Options for salads are amazing including everything from fruit to nuts! Great family spot, and outdoor seating. Wait can be long on weekends, but we just plan ahead and have a drink while waiting.
