Re: “Upper Deck Sports Pub

This entry is not correct. The Upper Deck no longer hosts open mics.

Re: “Edwards Mill Bar & Grill

The Edwards Mill Grill is a disgusting dump. Under no circumstances would I ever eat there again. I was going to meet up with a small group of acquaintances for an event in that general area, and we planned to go eat afterwards. I did a quick web search for restaurants in that area, and the Edwards Mill Grill came up and had a very good user rating. Well, this is obviously a case where employees and family members have gone on-line and given a place positive reviews, because there just isn’t any other way that this dump could ever get positive reviews. I ordered a burger and a salad, with blue cheese dressing. The quality of the salad itself was unusually good, i.e., fresh, green lettuce. But the dressing was watery and didn’t really taste at all like blue cheese. And it got worse when the burger came. When I order a burger in a restaurant, I expect the texture to resemble what you get if you go to a local supermarket and buy some ground beef at the meat counter, i.e., beef that has been freshly ground there in the store by the butcher. What I do not expect, and will never tolerate, is a patty of something that has been so thoroughly ground that it resembles more of a paste of some sort, that has been reconstituted into a patty. I know that you know what I’m talking about, because this kind of ground meat is not uncommon in cheap restaurants. And it tastes a lot like beef, but not completely like beef, and it is just disgusting. I wasn’t able to finish eating it, and the reason is partly that I was getting sick. It was disgusting. If I had not been with a group, I would have walked out as soon as they brought that burger. But when you are with a group, you can’t do that. When I give a restaurant my business, I do not think that I should be rewarded by having stomach cramps and gas for the next two or three days. I would never, ever eat at this dump again.

Re: “Four Corners

Just ate at Four Corners and had a great meal. We had a great chicken sanwich and chili. The food was not fancy but really good. Our waiter was friendly and the entire atmosphere was great. Highly recommended!

Re: “Devine's Restaurant & Sports Bar

Devine's is a great ole bar to watch sports, hear music and enjoy Downtown Durham! Locals and Students both enjoy this Durham Tradition. Chuck Alford plays most Wednesday evenings, Bands on the Weekends and Sports all the time on the many many tvs

Re: “Sparks Wings & Ribs

Since the remodel, Sparks now has a smoke free dining room. It is great! The ribs are delicious and so are the sluggers. Mama's Macaroni Salad is wonderful. Give it a try!

Re: “Fox & Hound Pub & Grill

This is an awesome sports bar. I think its the best sports bar in Raleigh. The food, service and atmosphere are phenomenal.

Re: “Four Corners

Excellent food and diverse menu. Not your average bar-food, really good and everything is freshly prepared! Great atmosphere, friendly staff. Best place to watch any sporting event in Chapel Hill by far. lots of tvs, trivia, poker, even beer pong. Guaranteed to have an awesome time, reminiscent of the great college town that Chapel Hill is.

Re: “Sparks Wings & Ribs

Smoke, smoke and more smoke. Zero ventilation. If you want to experience the effects of second hand smoke, go here! Besides that...it suffers from an identity crisis. Not really fan based or anything...Just plain gross. I will say that in the daytime I had fish tacos once and they were really good. But I have been there twice at nite and I can say I know what a cigarette filter feels like....never again.
