They have a limited gluten free menu. Bagged chips or fruit for a side. My burger with lettuce “bun” was wonderful, but a dedicated fryer would take this place to the top. The server was knowledgeable and took good care to make sure all was well.

This was a disappointment. The server encouraged us to order fries even though it’s not a dedicated fryer. I had to dig and question what else was cooked in the fryer. They forgot the fruit as the side and left off our starter. When we inquired about the starter, they replaced it with a non-GF item. Maybe it was an off day for them. It was just an extremely frustrating experience.

**FRIES ARE NOT GLUTEN FREE**

My lowish star ranking is somewhat of a reflection on the reviews I read here prior to going to this restaurant, rather than the restaurant itself. With such high rankings here, I expected a lot, but what I experienced didn't live up to the rankings on this site.

My burger on a gluten free bun was good, but nothing to write home about. I thought it was a bit pricey for what I got.

I'd read a recent review here that said that the fries were safe, so I trusted that information. We went out of our way to go to this place, just to get there and find out that their fries are in no way gluten free. I like burgers, but burgers without fries aren't much of a treat, and I wouldn't have gone out of my way if I'd known that I couldn't have the fries.

Going on 11 years with having celiac disease, I seek out restaurants that have gluten free fried food, because frying at home is messy and kind of a pain, so having fried food at restaurants is a huge (and rare) treat. So when I was traveling to Charlotte, I wanted to go to places where I could get fried foods.

I did not get sick at Bad Daddy's, and my food was fine, but I found myself wishing we'd gone back to Burton's instead, where I could have gotten gluten free fries.

I had a turkey burger on a GF bun and it was delicious! I also had the sweet potato fries and didn’t get sick. Everything was great and I cannot wait to go back!

One of the house specialties, the bacon cheeseburger, was absolutely the best hamburger I've ever had even on a gluten free bun, which often are dry and not tasty.The restaurant was so loud you really can't go there to have a conversation with anyone. The restaurant decor is fun to look at and the wait staff is helpful. Everyone at my table enjoyed their meal. I'm still thinking about how good my burger was and wish I lived close enough to visit again soon! If you're in Charlotte, don't miss it!!

The food is great, but it's always so hectic here that I'm never 100% confident that my food will be handled carefully. They carry the table's food out (gf & non-gf) on a single tray, so if you're very sensitive be sure to ask them to plate it separately (I do every time, but it's always a crap shoot whether or not they will comply). Sides are limited but burgers and (tons of) toppings are fantastic!!! I skip the bun & go straight for a lettuce wrap eaten with fork & knife. They serve Cape Cod chips in individual bags or a fruit bowl on the side.

Kid friendly, casual atmosphere. Great burgers on ok gluten free buns. Better than Udis bread but not as fabulous as McMenamins buns.

Fries are not gluten free and desserts are not dairy free so our options were limited.

Service was friendly & prompt. We will return.

Really good burgers. Waitstaff understood gluten issues and explained they use a separate part of the grill though its the same surface so you'll have to judge for yourself. Spiked milkshakes are something else! No separate fryer.

they have great GF buns or lettuce "buns". they have a seperate menu for gluten sensitive people, and have always done a good job with cooking the food safely with no cross contamination for people with celiac. i have celiac and i have never gotten sick here. they have burger and salad options, and fruit salad or chips for a side. the staff has always been great too! probably my favorite place to get a burger!!

From the GF menu, I had a create-your-own-salad with lots of fixings and Angus beef patty as protein plus homemade lemon Greek dressing. It was so good! We’ll be back!
