Bad Daddy's, Charlotte: A Favorite Burger Spot in Charlotte
Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar, Charlotte is true to its name. Bad Daddy’s, Charlotte has a large list of burgers and it also has a full-service bar serving everything from draught beer, wine and “spiked milkshakes” — hence the name Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar — which was once named Big Daddy's Burger Bar.
With two locations in Charlotte — one in Dilworth at 1626 East Boulevard and one in Ballantyne at 15105A John J. Delaney Drive — Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar is an extremely popular restaurant in the region. The establishment consistently wins local media awards for “Best Burger” or “Best Lunch Spot,” and the restaurant is always crowded with locals as well as visitors to Charlotte.
The main section of the menu is called “Favorite Burgers.” Although the list seems to be mainly filled with typical hamburger concoctions, it is actually crammed with chicken sandwiches, black bean burgers and pork burgers. Some of the favorites include the Western Burger, which is topped with Monterey Jack cheese, crispy fried onions, and barbecue sauce; the Cantina 1511 Burger (the restaurateurs own both Bad Daddy’s and Cantina 1511), which is a black bean burger topped with green chiles, avocado, cheese and chipotle ranch dressing; and the Frenchie, which is a turkey burger topped with brie, bacon, apples and garlic mayo.
The “Favorite Burgers” come with a choice of French fries, fruit cup, sweet potato fries, house slaw, onion straws, tater tots or housemade potato chips. For an additional cost, diners can also choose a side of Mac & Cheese or a small “build your own salad.” Separately, the salads come in small or large sizes. There are five different choices of lettuce, 17 choices of toppings, nine different cheeses, and choices of proteins and fruits.
Bad Daddy’s also has a full bar menu, including old fashion milkshakes. They also serve “spiked milkshakes," which have some sort of alcoholic mixture in them.
HelloCharlotte Tip: Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar is open for breakfast on Saturdays and Sundays from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.
