Foodie Friday: Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar

| November 7, 2014

Every once in a while I get a craving for a really good burger. Not one that can be obtained for a few bucks through a drive through window, but one that requires good meat, fresh toppings and two hands.

Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar is by far the best place to satisfy such a craving. The wide variety burgers are thick and juicy and have only the best toppings.

Sink your teeth into the classic All American burger or give them a spicy treat with the Cantina burger topped with green chiles, avocado and chipotle ranch and cheddar and monterrey jack cheeses.

More adventurous burger eaters should try the Sam I Am which is topped with American cheese, a fried egg, rosemary ham and pesto.

My personal favorite is the Mama Ricotta’s burger topped with fresh mozzarella, pesto, vine ripened tomatoes, pepperoncini and extra virgin olive oil. It is the perfect burger for people who love Italian food.

The sweet potato fries melt in your mouth and are the perfect side dish to any of their burgers.

The service at Bad Daddy’s is incredible. The servers are always checking on guests and refilling drinks in a timely manner. Every server is happy to give suggestions about menu options and make sure customers get exactly what they want.

There is a certain ambiance present in the restaurant. It has the bar atmosphere so it is a great place for going out with a big group. However, if bars aren’t quite your scene, it is still a great place for a casual date or outing with friends. It isn’t too loud to where you cannot hear the people around you, but there is a fun energy about it.

Photos, news clippings and other artifacts line the walls. They’re slightly crowded, but add to the whimsical atmosphere.

The patio area is heated and provides a quieter, less bar-like atmosphere for those diners who prefer something different.

The burgers aren’t the only items on the menu worth trying out. Daddy’s Nachos are the best appetizer to share with a group. They are loaded with chili, black beans, jalapenos, cheddar, red onions, jalapeno bacon, black olives, queso sour cream and green onions.

Bad Daddy’s also has a selection of alcoholic milkshakes that are insanely popular. Think the thick and creamy delight of a cookout milkshake, but with your favorite alcohol added for an extra buzz.

Prices at Bad Daddy’s are reasonable for the quality of the food and service provided. Burgers range from $10 to $13.

The only downside to an evening at Bad Daddy’s is the parking. The lot is small and there is not a lot of street parking available, but it is worth the fight for the spot.

Next time the burger craving strikes, head to the Dilworth neighborhood and check out Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar.
