Burger joint with rooftop bar opens first Cobb location

Smyrna has a new place to grab a burger and a drink.

And the opening of Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar on Wednesday means that Jonquil — a 11-acre, mixed-use development at Atlanta and Spring roads in Smyrna — is 100 percent occupied.

Jonquil, named after the city’s favorite flower, includes a 45,600-square-foot Publix that opened in December and 25,000 square feet of retail/restaurant space in addition to 266 living units.

The developer, Halpern Enterprises, estimates that the intersection sees nearly 46,000 vehicles a day.

Smyrna officials cut the ribbon on the 3,519-square-foot burger joint about 11 a.m., according to the city Facebook page. The restaurant has a 1,200-square-foot rooftop bar and patio.

In addition to burgers, its menu shows salads and milkshakes.
