when the server asks for your preferred temperature for your hamburger, believe her when she says to err on the side of it arriving less cooked than most restaurants.

I'm a fan of burgers with unique toppings, and figured we'd give Bad Daddy's a try. The Frenchy Burger (turkey, brie, grilled apples, bacon and garlic mayo) was amazing. I am ready to go back and have it again...with a Hell Yes Ma'am. Oh, and...More

The build your own burger was the best in the triangle the fries were the worst The restaurant was so noisy that it was difficult to order your food I would not go there on a date or business lunch as communication is impossible. Just...More

Loved the outdoor seating, small Bar and restaurant setting. This was our first trip and the menu offers something for everyone. Food was cooked great. Portions were very filling and the cost is reasonable.

....but get there early as it's very popular! Burgers off their menu or create your own! Good beer selection and one of the best outdoor patios in Raleigh.

We love the burgers, salads, tater tots and beers. Always a great meal. Sometimes there is a wait, but well worth it.

A noisy joint but the burgers are worth it. Big portions, interesting mix of flavors, nice sides and cold beer and plenty of sports on tv.

They have outdoor seating.
I plan to bring a group of approximately 15 senior men on June 27th for lunch after our Trolley tour of downtown and Mordecai Mansion/Park. Time depends on the tour but should be there between 12-12:30. Any issues? May we have separate checks?

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!
