Review of Bad Daddy's Burger Bar

1626 East Blvd, Charlotte, NC 28203

Overall Rating



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.

Celiac friendly?
