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!

But compared to the other bad daddy's in the area something seems lacking... No one seemed like they cared about your experience. Oh well... It's not like that's the worst thing in the world

I Went For My Boyfriend's: The Strawberry LEmondade Was Great...Too Bad They Charge For Refills. However The Emilio's Chicken Sandwich Was Great. And I Order The Sweet Potato Fries As My Side. Very Filling The Atmosphere Was A Little Busy But Overall A Great Place!

Fresh & delicious burgers! Really liked the onion straws, tater tots & sweet potato fries too. Service was friendly but a little forgetful....asked twice for to go cup for milkshake & finally got it myself at the bar. It is a nice area & shops to explore after your meal:)

This place was delicious. We came in late so it was nice and quiet and the service was great. The burgers were delicious and one of our group skipped the burger and went straight to the milkshake which was also fantastic (cookies n' cream). Can't go wrong here if you're looking for a well above average burger.

And SO disappointed! Really looking forward to Bad Daddy's, yet when we arrived, were seated at a booth, that felt like it was last cleaned with a syrup rag, totally sticky! Overlooked that, and ordered chips with onion dip and pimento cheese dip. Onion dip was VERY onion dip....pimento cheese tasted like garlic. And the chips.....way too salty. My burger... More

I love the black bean burger from Bad Daddy's alongside a heap of tater tots. It is typically packed at lunch time so don't plan to find a parking place. If you want lunch I would order ahead and take it with you. There are always parking spaces in pick up. The food is so good that it really doesn't... More
