Big Daddy's is the “Real Deal”
Big Daddy’s Burger Bar – Located on East Blvd, in the former location of Jaimama

They are doing a soft opening and the place was remarkably crowded considering no advertising was done.
Cool casual sort of industrial atmosphere with comfortable booths, stainless steel on the walls. I felt a kind of a Macs vibe sans the creepy boss man mojo. They feature an awesome beer list and more importantly Charlotte’s finest waitress Jenny. If a person she can’t charm exists they have no doubt had a lobotomy.

The kitchen is still learning the ropes and the food was a bit slow getting out of the kitchen. They need to get better at working with the grill and insuring proper degree of doneness. A very positive note is that they grind the beef fresh themselves and as such can offer the option of a rare burger. Jim and Bob were delighted with this bit of good news.

The basic concept here is to build your own burger or salad. As you may have guessed I opted to build a burger. You get to pick your meat (ground chuck, chicken, black bean, for an additional charge Kobe Beef or a huge 10 oz. burger if the standard 6 oz. just won’t get you there.), bread, cheese, condiments, topping and premium toppings. Choices include some great bread options cheeses such as Swiss cheddar, pimento blue, veggies; interesting sauces and premium toppings like apple wood smoked bacon, avocado, sausage, ham, jalapeño bacon and fried egg to name few. All burgers are served with a choice of French fries, sweet potato fries, onion straws, tater tots, black bean and corn salsa or a chopped wedge salad.

Our crew started with an appetizer of Kobe pups. Kobe Pups are three little Kobe beef, chili, and cheese dogs. It was a fine little chili cheese dog, but why I must ask use Kobe beef. I now know a Kobe beef dog tastes just like any other quality beef hot dog. Save the Kobe for a situation where you can actually taste the difference.

For the main event I had a basic burger (6oz. house ground chuck) with Mailles Dijon Mustard, Cabot Swiss Cheese and Apple wood smoked bacon. I am pleased to report the bun was fresh; the burger juicy and delicious, the Swiss cheese melted just right and the bacon crispy. I am talking one first-rate top notch all American Burger. The accompanying fries were house cut and very good. The daddy sauce served with the fries was superb. I am pleased to proclaim
Big Daddy’s Burger Bar is indeed the” Real Deal” The Godfather and crew are eager to return very soon. Save us a seat in Jenny’s section.
