I am part outraged and embarrassed for Napper Tandy's. I have heard of this place forever, supposedly one of the MUST Go places if ever in Raleigh's Glenwood Ave Restaurant Row. So yesterday while at an event in the area, my wife and I went to 'da Nappers. I expected an unforgettable experience, and I got one I did not expect.
We made our way downstairs to the Pub. Nothing exceptional except the place was wall to wall tv's (not a bad thing) with loads of different sports events on.
But then it was time to order. My wife got an Irish Whiskey on the rocks, and it came out timely... in nothing but a plastic 8 oz cup... and cost $7.50!
Drinks aside, I decided to order the Fish -n- Chips, my wife went with the Shepards Pie and I was curious and got the Bangers and Mash to take home
My fish was more burnt breading than fish, and forget about cocktail sauce.... you only get tartar as they dont even have cocktail sauce.
The fries... what a joke! Stale, undercooked... definitely fresh out of the freezer. All this for like $12?!
My wife's Sheppards pie was more mashed potatoes than meat and the mashed potatoes tasted watery and no salt, pepper, butter, nothing!. I am certain the mashed potatoes were fresh because it had a chunk of undercooked potato in it. GROSS. This ran I think $13. You gotta be kiddin me!
Then there was the bangers & mash. Mashed potatoes must have come from the same batch.... watery and not a stitch of seasoning to it.. The bangers, what an effing joke. Little more than cocktail weenies.
Obviously this is a pub and they do not concentrate a lot on food. They seem to want to focus more on frozen food fastly made than actually good food reasonably priced.
Napper Tandy's 'repuketation' will be forever in my mind. Those that go to Napper Tandy's, dont go for the food. Go for the sports pub, go for the atmosphere, go for the booze. But stay away from the food.

Oh, Durham. Ohhhh, Lilly's!
I want you to be the best spot in town but every time I try, I am disappointed. It seems like no one really cares.
The pizza is great. The ceasar salad was a soggy mess of lettuce.
The service was horrible. How many times do people have to write that the service was horrible.
I watched the bartender blow his nose (in plain sight of the handwash sink and of customers), drop the paper towel into the trash, then wipe his nose with his hand and then serve me my food. The sink is right there, wash your hands. Please.

The best venue for house music in the Triangle period! Mosaic is a Lounge that transforms into mini club featuring the best house DJs, local, national and worldwide. With an extensive wine menu, indoor and outdoor hookahs, a fantastic patio and great location in Raleigh, this is the place to go when you are missing the NYC/Chicago/Miami vibe.
The first thing to know about Coffee Haven is that it has a completely unassuming exterior -- in fact, completely generic. You can drive or walk by it dozens of times without noticing it. If you happen to notice it, you probably won't think, "That looks like an interesting place, I think I'll try it out." But in fact, it's a hidden gem. Once you step inside, you realize you've discovered something not many other folks know about.
In my opinion, Coffee Shop serves the best coffee on Hillsborough Street and even when compared to cafes downtown. They also serve fresh-made breakfast and lunch. This combination of good food, good coffee and lack of pretentiousness brings Coffee Haven to the top of my list for cafes in Raleigh.
It's also quiet. I set up my professional lunch meetings at Coffee Haven. Of course, there's WiFi. There's offstreet parking. And did I mention freshly made food?
Coffee Haven is located in a building that houses three businesses and which has a 1970's-ish Pizza-Hut style roof. It shares the building with an old-school barber shop and a shoe store. The signage is very, very generic. My first impression from the street view was that it was the kind of place that served Folgers and truck-stop food. The contrast between what you expect and what you discover is part of Coffee Haven's charm.
There are plenty of coffee shops to choose from in Raleigh and each is suited to different types of customers. Coffee Haven is great for grad students, working professionals and anyone who prefers the taste of coffee over the need to be seen as hip. It's not a place designed for undergrads who want to camp out for hours doing homework in overstuffed living room chairs.
My preference is for quieter, non-chain shops with good food. When I think about the many cafes I go to around NC State and even downtown Raleigh, my preference is Coffee Haven.
This is delicious food hidden away at the end of Chapel Hill blvd. I eat there once a month, it's one of my favorite places.
The music schedule at Roberts is different for this month. Jim Crisp only played this past Wednesday and will unfortunatly not be playing the rest of the month due to a holiday party, basketball, and then christmas all falling on Wednesdays. Brevan Hampden & Friends have not played here for some time. On Friday the 13th and 20th we will feature JT Parrothead (Acoustic Guitar and Singing) and on Saturday the 14th we will feature Alex Thompson (Solo Piano)
Downtown Durham has been missing soul food in the heart of Parrish St for a while. Places have come and gone, but I really hope this place stays. delicious . sweet, friendly Durham style service with a smile, and southern comfort food. the night we went, slow jams were right on time, too.
This entry is not correct. The Upper Deck no longer hosts open mics.
An remains my choice as best Asian restaurant in the triangle. Kudos to the current chef for consistency and wonderful execution of this menu. Prices are very reasonable for this quality of dining; lunch is simply a bargain and a nice introduction to An, always a nice Bento box option as well as menu. In the evening, a full dinner with wine, appetizer and gratuity will run about $50/person total. The sushi is generous and uber-fresh. The Thai wings appetizer are another treat for two. My favorite entrees include duck curry, crab cakes, NC flounder, Japanese eggplant, but there's lots more. Perhaps the only entree I'd pass on would be the lamb, just because it hasn't lent itself to the inventive cooking here and there's so many other great choices. There's vegetarian and mild dishes for the spice-challenged. And for an unexpected decadence, the hot Macadamia cookies are made to order and melt in your mouth.
The service and the food is great. Also the cartering is easy and the people taking calls are helpfull.
Overall I love Saladelia
love the food and the service!
Very good and innovative vegetarian food! Its more on the gourmet side than everyday food, but none the less most excellent.
This is, hands-down, the BEST pizza that I have had since living in NC on and off for the last 10 years. It's mind boggling that I didn't discover this until now.
Being from Long Island, NY, I have always detested any pizza place in North Carolina because the pizza simply didn't taste as good. Not only is the pizza delicious (thin crust style just like NY is supposed to be), but I was thrilled that they had cannoli!!! You can never find them down here! Like a pig, I ordered some tiramisu and cannoli. Also, I HIGHLY recommend their garlic knots, which are more like garlic fists because of their size. They are so yummy!
I will definitely have trouble staying away from this place ;)
Used to be awesome until Ziggy died and new management took over. Same name but culture and location changed, now it's more jazz like a suburban bar and grill with corn-hole on the patio. C-
Virgil's Jamaica now has a mobile food truck. Follow them on Facebook and twitter!
We do carry out regularly from Pig. Southern BBQ at its finest although I'm from Hawaii. Still there is a common thread and that is pulled pork. These folks buy their meat directly from the farmer who treats his animals kindly so you know you are getting quality meat. Collards, pickles, cole slaw, hush puppies and their vinegar sauce are all wonderful for this island boy. If I were to make one complaint it would be that sometimes they go a little over board with the salt. Anytime we have visitors this is one of the first places we take them to. Oh yeah, the staff are very friendly and the price is quite reasonable.
This place sucked...The food was bland, the meat was tasteless. Entrees that were supposed to be spicy were just as bland as basic items. Terrible, terrible food...Save your money and dine somewhere else. SACAGA commented above that this is the best Chinese restaurant in Chapel Hill, well she must be the owner or a shill...I can think of a half dozen other Chinese restaurants in Chapel Hill that beat this place hands down. At 8:20PM on a Saturday night the restaurant was mostly empty and for good reason...The food is just plain lousy!!!!!!!
Best patio to eat and drink! Love the "How do you Q?" drink and The Uberwisconsin - grilled cheese!
