Bad Daddy's just before New Year's, but they were closed for a "private party"/soft opening. This past Friday, we arrived around 7:30 or so and there was a short wait. We considered getting a drink, but decided we'd just wait until we were seated or dinner.
While we were waiting to be seated, I took time to really look around and get the "vibe". The decor is kinda industrial, but not sparse and completely full of metal. There are wood tables/booths, interesting pictures on the walls, and a few TVs. Thankfully, there aren't TVs on every single wall - just enough to keep the kids (or the husband) occupied while everyone else finishes their meal. Also, the restaurant is a little loud, but not so loud that you can't hear those at your table.

he could have a burger on
After a relatively short wait, our food arrived. While I can't really speak to how good J's burger was, I think he was pleased - it didn't take him long to eat it and there was nothing left on the plate, always a good sign. J said that the fries were not that great. He's not one to order fries often because they aren't and when he has them he wants them to be good without ketchup - these didn't hit that mark. My salad was really good too! My only recommendations on the salad would be - 1) Shred the cheese, the "chunks" don't allow cheese to be in a lot of bites 2) Chill the stainless steel bowls, it would be a nice touch.
In short, I would say that this will end up in our "regular" rotation. There are enough choices on the menu so that you don't always have to get an actual burger each time too. The service was great and we liked the vibe. Can't wait to go back soon!
