Word on the Street (and on WLTX) is that Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar, a successful chain from Charlotte, has agreed to lease a spot in the new Cardinal Crossing on Forest Drive (where old Cardinal Newman HS used to stand).
Bad Daddy’s menu features lots of burger offerings, non-burgers, salads and a create-your-own menu that allows you to create your own crazy or not-so-crazy burger or salad. Craft beer, many local, are offered as well.
Acquired by The Beach Company in 2016, the 12-acre property is currently under development on the former site of Cardinal Newman High School. Cardinal Crossing’s initial retail offerings are expected to be open for business early fall, while The Cardinal apartments expect to welcome first residents by January 2020.
