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.

My celiac child got sick after eating here last night. Had a supposed GF burger abd fruit but must have had cross contamination. Have rated here before without any issue but not last night

**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.

Fantastic burgers and good gf buns ( not too thick like Udi's). This is a new favorite for our family.

I’ve been to Bad Daddy’s more times than I can count over the past couple years and it is one of my favorite gluten free burger places. I absolutely love their gluten free bun and their burgers are delicious. The only thing I’d suggest you be aware of is there have been a few times they have toasted my bun in the same toaster as wheat buns, so make sure you clarify you have an allergy not just a preference. The few times this has happened they have gladly remade it and given me a discount. They also recently added steamed broccoli to their choice of gluten free sides along with fruit and chips. As much as I wish the fries were an option, they are not safe due to cross contamination. I’ve been here almost weekly for the past couple years and have never gotten sick, would highly recommend!!

They have cape cod chips from a bag, fruit, build your own salad and build your own burger. I tried to ask questions, waitress was really rude. Food came out wrong, and my boyfriends Mac and cheese tasted like Chinese buffet Mac and cheese.

I was never a fan of burgers but my bf took me here and now this is one of our favorite spots. The food is always great and they make sure to mark that I have Celiac/red flag the order so the kitchen knows to change their gloves and so on. There was one time I went where they accidentally gave me a regular bun because the waitress forgot to hit the gf bun option but it’s bound to happen when you go out to eat at least once (always check). Other than that the staff is usually attentive to my needs and I definitely recommend this establishment👌🏼

They seem out of practice at Gf due to covid distractions. Waitresses know some, but they have multiple people filling a simple order, and so what was supposed to be a bag of chips came out in a bowl. While all my attention was on the bun, manager ran out to take the chips. They’d been refried in dirty oil. I asked to see their gf buns. Sealed in plastic. Texture and flavor will make you think there has been an error. Really good burger and bun.

Buns unbelievable. Burger meat wonderful. If you order medium it is pink throughout. Rarer than most places, but great.

I didn’t see Red Bridge.
