Great venue for live music!
I usually don't take the time to post reviews, good or bad, but this place needs to be shared! I can't think of a better place I'd like to go for lunch, dinner or just about any kind of entertainment. This place has it all. It seems this place is very clean, very well managed, thought out, with a specific goal in mind. Not just providing more than exceptional food, but providing an experience. The wait staff was pleasant, efficient, and on top of everything (even with what looked to be a full house) My wife enjoyed the Gouda Mac n Cheese, I had the Blackened Chicken Alfredo, my daughter polished off a plate of angel hair pasta (she says its the sauce that makes it), and my son loved his hand battered chicken tenders. Portions are very generous and priced just right. It would be safe to say that the PBO Roadhouse isn't the cheapest place in town, but is by no means expensive. We paid exactly what I would expect to pay for what we got. This place has got it all, after looking at the entertainment lineup there, we realized this place is the place to be. Whether you like live music, (any genre, big band orchestra to AC/DC cover bands!), live theater performance, or even comedy shows, this place has it all. We will definitely be making this our regular weekly dining destination. Very much looking forward to a night out there without the kids too! Did I mention they have a HUGE dance floor and a nice bar? If you haven't been there, you need to go.....tonight, tomorrow, (heck, go tonight and tomorrow!) ,or just as soon as you can get there! You're missing out!
The Green Room is such a unique place to spend time. Not only do they have one of the best beer selections on the East Coast, the clientele are people of all ages, races, genders, sexualities, economic backgrounds, and creeds. The only unifying factor between us all is a dedication to dignity and honor that is gently aided by the wonderful housemen. If there were more places in Durham that could sustain this type of active diversity, we'd be a better city.
Delicious food, attentive service and charming decor. I recommend the salads as entrees, wine & bread with olive oil. The country store has lots of artistic merchandise. We had a fun time.
My husband and I ate at the Roadhouse recently and the meal was tasty and the service was superb!! While there were the usual hiccups on opening day, they have worked out all the bugs and our dining experience was most pleasant. This restaurant is NOTHING like the old General Store Cafe; not only in decor but in particular with the food and service. They have continued not only the music nights but have continued to be involved with benefit events and recently sponsored a "Meet and greet" buffet where folks could come and meet our elected officials. They are offering 10% off your meal from now until election day if you wear your "I voted today" sticker. We love it that Greg Lewis also supports local farmers to supply some of the food used in their menus. You rock Pittsboro Roadhouse & General Store!!!
Don't waste your time because the staff certainly won't "waste" time on you. Terrible service and terrible vibe. Seems like they hire people who look like wait staff but after spending some time there, I think they are just hired to make the place look like they actually have patrons and you still can't get anyone to serve a damn drink.
If you're into trashy clubs, this place might be your thing. I literally felt overdressed - as in, I was wearing too much fabric compared to some of the scantily-clad girls showing off their lady-bits and muffin-tops. The drinks could have saved it, but they're weak and overpriced. Not recommended
Great, inventive beer styles, though likely to be different from what you're used to. The tavern is a fun post-industrial space complete with a good juke box, pinball, and ping pong. They've upped the food options recently, but you can still bring in your own food or get it delivered, which makes it almost like an indoor beer garden.
One of the best nights at Southern Rail. Same dj we saw at the Wailers show. Great spot on a summer night.
We stumbled upon this event last summer and had a blast. Been back 3 or 4 times now. If you have never been, Southern Rail has a cool, retro flea market kind of feel - in a good way. The dj plays all reggae and some of the best stuff I have ever heard. The place is usually pretty packed on this night, but its a friendly enough crowd. The only bad part was that it sometimes took a while to get a drink.
We live nearby and Have seen some fantastic bands here! Members of The Old Ceremony perform regularly, and the Windy City Slim show a couple of weeks ago was outstanding. My personal fave is an amazing group called "Skinny Bag of Sugar." Can't figure out how they don't charge any cover at the Station, but we left the bands tips. Beer selection is good, and lots of drink specials.
