The burgers here are only okay and are overpriced. Frankly, Cookout is a better burger and a better deal.
I went one and only time and wouldn't go back. The place is highly overrated. The fries were really good, but burger and house brews weren't anything special. I tried bites of two other burgers so even though I only went once I've sampled three.
My biggest issue, however, is that I ordered and asked for tomato on my burger and they said no.
It's out of season, they said.
So in other words, during certain times of the year can you get a burger with a tomato on it. If they're going to do that, they should put a sign up so you don't waste time in line only to get to the register and find out you can't get what you want and what is expected at any serious burger joint that isn't run by poseurs.
Onions aren't always in season. Neither is lettuce. Neither, I'm sure, are the ingredients they use for their brews. I'm sure they have a ton of products not being produced locally. But a guy can't get a tomato depending on whenever the owners decree it so.
And if Bull City Burger is so worried about being freaking organic and local and getting stuff "in season" they can surely grow their own or contract a local farm to do it hydroponically or in a greenhouse. Do they purchase their pepper locally? Is the salt local produced?
They're poseurs. If you're going to deny a customer only one product that many, many people believe is essential to their burger eating experience, simply because it's not locally grown, then don't be a hypocrite and do that with everything.
Sadly, the woman taking my order was arrogant about it as if I were an idiot for wanting a slice of tomato when it so obviously wasn't in season. Perhaps it's because I asked her to explain more than once b/c I'm a big burger fan and having had probably a thousand in my four decades and having been to probably a hundred places I had never experienced something so silly before and asked her to repeat it.
Had I not been with others and had we not already spent so much time in line to get to the register I would have walked out. Frankly, there are better burgers in the Durham area. Cookout, Only Burger, Allen and Sons are probably the top three burgers in the local area.
The bread was so soggy it became batter. It was clear that the oil the potatoes, onions and pickles were fried in was, at best, very old if not rancid. What a disappointment.
This venue is closed.
My rating may be biased because I am in the show! Just wanted to let you know the map is wrong, it will take you to the wrong place. How can we fixed this? here is the correct map:
Transitioning from adolescence to adulthood is hard enough . . . imagine the obstacles for young people struggling with serious mental-health issues. Come out to this fabulous and fun event and support Josh's Hope to provide job- and life-skills training to young adults with mental illness.
Been to this location several times and had ok experiences. The buffet was cold and not replenished quickly. Went for dinner 4/20, horrible service, chef and management refused to make substitutions, even after told we would pay extra to get them. Horrible service, mediocre food. NOT A CHILD FRIENDLY PLACE!!!!!!!!! DO NOT EAT HERE!!!
Mad Hatter's Bakeshop is a great place for weekend brunch. Their daily omelets are always fresh and delicious. If you're in a sandwich mood, go for the avocado BLT. It's seriously amazing!
My husband and I had them make our cakes for our wedding shower, and they were fantastic. We got chocolate cake with mocha and hazelnut mousse.
Absolutely delicious! The oysters and scallops are fantastic, not to mention, the mac and cheese and white chocolate bread pudding. It was all great! Our waiter was friendly and knowledgable about all the dishes on the menu and the fresh selections of the day. He offered great recommendations and informed us that all of their seafood was no more than 48 hours old.
Food is fabulous! Desserts are heavenly! Best barteneder in town. Service needs a little help but highly recommended otherwise.
Amazing food no matter what you have a taste for! I love Brigs!
I hope they will keep serving seafood along with Vegan options!
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.
I love visiting the Scrap Exchange. I started going there when they were still at North Gate. They have tons of great treasures.
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.
This just seems wrong. So many people are actually dying and being terrorized because of war. Treating it like a game and profiting from it doesn't seem like a good way to support kids with deployed parents (and they are not 'Lil Troops!' they are kids. ) Others are volunteering their time and money to encourage families not to buy war toys and turn our culture from a culture of violence. Hard Knocks seems to be exploiting peoples natural sympathy for military families (and perhaps guilt for failing to prevent them from being deployed needlessly) for their own promotion and profit. Of course the real war profiteers and play war profiteers have a symbiotic relationship. This sugarcoating of war helps perpetuate violence and is NOT in the redemptive spirit of the holidays! Military families would be better served by our questioning this superficial exploitation.
