REVIEW: Bad Daddy's Burger Bar's Bad Ass Burger!
Holy hell! This was most ridiculous!
My absolutely beautiful wife Stacey saw this place across from where we usually do our grocery shopping, so I had to look them up. They have locations in seven states (AL, CO, GA, NC, OK, SC, and TN), and specialize in, obviously, burgers! Things seem to be returning to normal a little around here in a COVID-19 world, so we got together with some friends we hadn't been able to hang out with for a long while and went out to dinner!
I started getting impressed as we approached the front door. We were greeted by several employees and they were all VERY nice! I'm talking about the type of greeting that actually leaves you smiling and doesn't come across as some canned customer service schtick. The place was pretty busy, and we were eating as a part of a party of six; but we were lucky as two of our group had already arrived a little early for a drink. We were escorted to our requested outdoor seating really quick and introduced to our waitress.
So, it was raining outside. And we were those pain-in-the-ass customers that thought we could sit outside comfortably. Unfortunately, Stacey and I started getting rained on pretty immediately, but thought we could tough it out. Appetizers and drinks were ordered, and we started catching up with our friends.
The appetizers were great! I ordered the "Not Your Momma's Deviled Eggs". Holy crap! As described on the menu, they were "...five lightly fried deviled eggs with a spicy filling, crumbled bacon & garnished with a fresh jalapeño." I would definitely order these again! One of our friends ordered the fried pickles, and they were also pretty damn good! The breading was very good with a nice level of spice to them. I will be getting those again too!
Not Your Momma's Deviled Eggs - AWESOME!
The fried pickles were GREAT!
After we had killed our appetizers, we had to be "those guys". I mean; a little high maintenance. We thought we would be fine sitting out on the covered patio, but the amount of rain getting in at us eventually won, and we were able to be moved inside. Thankfully we were able to keep our awesome server, Joely G. Her face seemed to genuinely light up when describing some of the items on the menu and she was perfectly attentive.
When my dinner came out, my eyes about glazed over. My burger was so big and ridiculous, it had a knife shoved through the top of it like it was a murder victim. The knife was holding it all together! I had ordered the "Bad Ass Burger", without reading the description. I wish I had read it, so I could have properly prepared myself! As described on the menu; "Two 5oz beef patties, Housemade American Cheese, buttermilk fried bacon, horseradish mayo, lettuce, tomato & pickle. It lives up to its name in every way!" This thing was a MONSTER!
HOLY S___!!! This thing is as big as my wife!!!
Here's another view!
This dinner is HUGE!
HOLY S___!!! The Bad Ass Burger is f___ing BAD ASS!!! The flavors were INCREDIBLE! I don't know where to start describing it. The bacon is buttermilk fried! WHO DOES THAT? A genius maybe! It was crispy, salty, and peppery. It was soooooooo good! The burger patties were also perfect. They had a really nice, almost steak like beefiness to them. They seemed to be of a really nice quality and I want more! This was the kind of burger that once you pick it up, you can't put it down until you are good and finished with it. It was hard to fit it in my mouth, even after I had pressed down on it to make it easier to eat. Damn Bad Daddy's Burgers! I already want another of these monsters!
Trying some of the bacon that fell off my Bad Ass Burger!
Fittin' it in. Can't stop now!
The whole experience was just so enjoyable. All of the staff was awesome! Our server, Joely G. was really good! The food was INCREDIBLE! I can't wait to get my ass back there to try something else; probably the "Bacon Cheeseburger On Steriods"!!!
