Description: 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!

Ordered our usual test burgers for a nee restaurant: one plain and one Carolina (called Southern @ Bad Daddy's). Based on others's reviews we ordered up one notch on doneness. Well done came out a perfect medium rare. Burgers were salty as were the fried pickles and fries. Beer list is short. Very nice patio. You can do better down the street at Tylers on both the food and the beer selection.

My daughter and I went to Bad Daddy's
for the first time today because my husband said it was the best burger in Raleigh.

He's right. The burger and tater tots (with their creamy BBQ sauce) were fantastic.

The atmosphere was really nice too. It was a beautiful day so we sat outside, but the inside looked like a neat place to have a beer and a burger anytime.

Great job and great experience.

This place was amazing. Build your own burgers and salads which includes tuna burgers, buffalo , bean, etc. I had tuna burger marinated in ginger and lime and cooked exactly as I wished. Many sides possible including build your own salad which includes choice of greens, choice of 4 options (like carrots, broccoli, olives , and on and on), choice of one cheese, choice of one fruit, choice of one crunchy (like croutons, tortilla strips, walnuts etc). Husband had rare beefburger, son had a beefburger with buttermilk fried bacon. Fun atmosphere, very friendly waiter. And as a very pleasant bonus there was even a changing table in the men's room where our grandson got changed. Lots of healthy choices. Roll of towels on table. They have thought of everything.

We will do Burgers next trip, but the Salads are fantastic. Can choose big or bigger, served in SS bowls with a huge variety of items to choose from. If you are in a hurry, this is good, healthy, FAST FOOD, as the salads were delivered quickly & a small mistake in cukes added, but not ordered brought the manager in a heart-beat & all was made well. Very impressed with the response, as the restaurant has only been open a short time and was very well organized. Are ready to visit them again & maybe have another salad, rather than the BIG Beautiful Burgers we saw others eating.

This spot was recommended to us. I had the bacon cheeseburger on steroids. It was loaded with bacon and extremely tasty! The beer selection was great and the atmosphere was excellent for watching a local basketball game. We will definitely be back soon!
