In America, it seems like you can roll up your sleeves and grab a burger just about anywhere these days. And while the burgers are usually filling, it’s rare when one blows you away.
Bob, the founder of Flipdaddy’s, was plagued by mediocre burgers during his years as a traveling salesman. Instead of waiting for the cure, he took it upon himself to fix the problem.
“On my travels, I noticed that the burgers I was eating were generally forgettable,” Bob says. “My plan was to make a burger that was unforgettable.”
And the beginning of Flipdaddy’s was certainly humble.
“It all started on my Weber grill in my backyard,” he says. “That’s where I would experiment with different kinds of burgers.”
Alas, Flipdaddy’s flagship location was established in Mariemont, Ohio in 2010. Since then, four locations have been added, including a sunny spot right here in Orange Beach.
The unique Flipdaddy’s experience starts as early as the appetizer. The Braxton Brewery Beer Cheese is made with Braxton Brewery “Flipdaddy’s Lager,” a lager that is made exclusively for Flipdaddy’s. This warm and melted blend of sharp cheddar, American cheese and spices is served with garlic butter pretzel bites.
As you may have already guessed, the burgers at Flipdaddy’s are the stars of the show. The beef is an always fresh, never frozen blend of brisket, chuck and short rib. With an extensive selection of signature burgers, there’s something on the menu for every palate.
The award-winning French Connection comes with Boursin cheese, aioli and deep fried, golden brown onion straws. Opt for a more rustic choice with the Whiskey Bacon: melted American cheese, cherrywood smoked bacon and a sweet whiskey reduction poured on top. Make sure you substitute your fries for a side order of delicious sweet potato tots.
Burgers and shakes have been an iconic American duo for decades, so Flipdaddy’s frozen bar is a perfect opportunity to scoop out some nostalgia. Hand-scooped ice cream of your choice is blended into a creamy, decadent milkshake. There are also frappes, lemonades and fresh fruit smoothies available.
Make your trip to Orange Beach unforgettable at Flipdaddy’s.
