Johnny's of Carrboro is an awesome place to have a beer and listen to some music. They have a different food truck there just about every night of the week. You can see what's going on at Johnny's on their google calendar found on their website.
Beer garden, great food, good people- a great place to spend some time on a beautiful day or evening.
Gary Brunotte is electric when performing his German tunes on his accordion.
I've been each year -- it's amazing to see the performing arts community come together in such a beautiful, energizing way, and for such a vital cause. Definitely a great thing to do Friday!
We have never been disappointed. I think that says quite a bit about any restaurant, especially if you have been going to it for 8 years. When they FINALLY got rid of the smokers it made it SO MUCH more pleasant. Running a good restaurant is easy??!! All you need is consistently good food and consistently good service. But that ain't at all easy!! Just last night my wife and I were going to try something new. But with all the trendy new Durham eateries out there we looked up some reviews and almost all of them were either overpriced (for us) or had consistent reviews about poor, slow or arrogant service. So we keep going back to Bennett Point Grill ( enjoying their great food and service) and to Magnolia Grill for those rare, special occasions.
Took the family for dinner - they were running a special for 1/2 price for anything on the menu! Food was good, service very friendly and accomodating. All in all, a great experience
I took business clients to this place last Monday evening and had a great experience. Friendly and casual-- quality, quality food. Great brisket and chicken in addition to the above mentioned pork. Catfish was excellent as well.
The real deal, which is hard to find these days. More expensive than Lexington or Goldsboro, but hey, this is Chapel Hill. And do *you* want to get up at 3 a.m. to fire the pits? Read the interview with Keith Allen in Holy Smoke (UNC Press) and you'll see why it's worth every penny. The huspuppies have been unreliable, but you should save room for the home-made pies and ice cream churned right there.
Wood-cooked pork shoulder -- you can go out back and watch them cook it -- with an array of soul-food sides. Your okra is fried to order, which is a really good sign. Run by a nice collection of folks, too.
Great store to browse and shop. They have so many interesting things other stores don't have. The owners are very friendly and helpful. I love Cameron's!
Great food! Great service! Great atmosphere!
The best food in town. Best value, choice and quality. The most unique restaurant in the area at its price range. Home made organic bread made daily says it all.
And the venue was probably the coolest, nicest and best sounding that I have been to in Raleigh! 3 Thumbs up!
As they say, "It's a hip hang-out in a cute old town."

DJ Junior is incredible. I've seen him spin at Elvisfest and Heavy Rebel. He spins an eclectic mix of 50's 60's Rock/Rockabilly. Looking forward to this show!
Being from the La. swamps myself...the food is good the beer is cold. You can't beat the live cajun music. Go have you some boudin and crawfish. You won't regret it....ayiiiiiieeeee
To those of you who experienced slow service back in September... we have been working very hard the past few months to improve service so that every experience at the Cafe is a good one.
Service hours are posted on the web site.
Great croque madame, great service. Nice little side spots to sit, away from the buzzing crowd that encircles this place every weekend, with good reason.
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.
Great spaces for a variety of art exhibits, including the large Raleigh Room, hallway, and display cases for 3-D work. Classes are offered in a good range of disciplines, for all ages.
