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.
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!
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
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!
This is an awesome sports bar. I think its the best sports bar in Raleigh. The food, service and atmosphere are phenomenal.
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.
Really great atmosphere. Very laid back & relaxed. Food was exceptional.
Great sports bar!! Lots of Tv's with satellite sports packs, great beer selection, better than average bar food and a classy ambiance. I really enjoy going to this place.
I went to catch a basketball game during tourney time at about 2pm. I asked the manager who's in control of the television's to find the Ky-Miss St game on ESPN Full Court. I was told by the manager, Travis, that they didn't carry the game. I expressed dismay that any sports bar didn't carry FC, especially one that I knew from previous experience actually did, he reluctantly went back again. He came back to tell me that he could only find a Ky game which was played the previous night. When I pointed this out, Travis went back to check and found it. Finally I got the game on the TV I was actually watching. I have to admit that I wondered if he understood how to use his equipment as a manager. So far so good until the game got to the last 7 seconds of a close game. The TV switched to the game that was playing on the other TV's. When I begged Travis to turn it back, I was told no, that someone must have been "fooling with the TV's", and it wasn't his fault. At no time did he offer to change it back or to check in the back. I only got a weak sorry. I paid my bill and left.
Across the street at a coffee shop. I checked for the final score to find that the game went into overtime! I went back across the street to find Travis. I explained that the game had gone into overtime. He said that he didn't change it and it wasn't his fault. I explained that it went into overtime. He asked if I wanted it changed back to the game! I said yes. I asked if he understood why I was upset. He said that it wasn't his fault and he couldn't help me! I was dumbfounded. Please understand that I was never rude though upset.
He never offered to change it back to the game! I left SP's without seeing the end of the game, the overtime, or ever having the MANAGER offer to help get the game back on for me. All I could ever get out of Travis was that it wasn't his fault, he didn't change it, and he couldn't help me. Needless to say, I can not recommend this bar under any circumstances.
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.
