Bad Daddy's seems to have the umami taste down to an art. I crave their build your own salad with a turkey burger and chipotle ranch dressing! The only downsides are the crowds and the noise level which are an obvious reflection of the popularity of this place. The servers are friendly and efficient. Try going at off hours to... More

Went to Bad Daddy's while visiting Raleigh on business. The burgers are large, fresh and juicy. Ever go to one of those places that the burgers are huge, tasty yet the grease runs all over your hands but you loved the burger? This is one of those places, without the grease running down your arms. Absolutely Delicious!! And the prices... More

Burgers bars are dime a dozen. Big Daddy's was unique with locally grown produce and meats used in their offerings. The music played was contemporary and the spaces big enough to be spacious without cavernous. A fun place to support.

Great burgers and great beer selection but don't go if you are in a hurry – especially on the weekends.

So as a burger joint, you don't have to do a lot right to be good, but cooking the beef is fairly fundamental. I ordered a well done and got blood red. Didn't have the time to have it redone, so not a good experience

Thanks for stopping by to leave us feedback for Bad Daddy’s. We are sorry that the food was anything less than a big WOW. A cook to order burger is important to us and we continually are striving to hit the mark with execution and training. We would love to make it up to you, please send us the info... More

As a rule I love this place. This time it was hot or miss on some items. First off our waiter was great. The fried pickles were really oily though. I had one of their specials which involved two patties which I asked for MR. Nope, these only came one way but were still really juicy and I would love... More

On a Sunday night, they were VERY busy so we sat at the bar. We shared the bacon cheeseburger on steroids and it was good. If you don’t like spicy things, have them leave off the jalapeno bacon because it packed a little heat. It came with tater tots, which were also good. I especially liked the build your own... More

I brought my father here and my wife and I have eaten here several times. This is a place where you can eat with your kids and or your dogs. The service, even for the dogs is outstanding. Go here and enjoy the meals, the beer, the atmosphere and the service.

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!
