Best patio to eat and drink! Love the "How do you Q?" drink and The Uberwisconsin - grilled cheese!
I have been to most of the markets in the area and we are truly lucky to have so many choices.
The amount of effort and cooperation between vendors and the managers to create these shopping options, can often go unnoticed by the customers that spend their Saturday mornings leisurely strolling the many venues. I am particularly impressed with the Wake Forest Farmers' Market because this group puts on their show with no corporate sponsors or municipal funding of any kind. It's just a 'organic' community of farmers, bakers, craft persons and musicians who team up and bang out a marketing experience that I find truly enjoyable each time I go. From the lively conversations between the vendors themselves and the often fascinating discourse that takes place when a patron asks a question about something that caught their eye.
Though sometimes a little rough around the edges and not as polished as some others in their peer group, the Wake Forest Farmers' Market stands alone in when it comes to my favorite way to start my Saturdays.
the best ..and i am a greek ...
If you love comic books, come to Ultimate. They have an incredible selection and a staff that not only loves to read comics, but love to share them with readers new and established. The store is incredibly nice and and their events are legend!
Great little record shop! And it's all due to Chaz being such a great host. Platters galore!
Baba Ghannouj is a hidden gem in the tangle of bad restaurants near 54 & 55. It does a brisk business at lunchtime, which means the cooks are always refilling the buffet line with freshly cooked food. The cuisine is Mediterranean and the highlights include the lamb with tzatziki sauce, the humus, and the curried chicken. There are plenty of vegetarian options, too. They are currently offering a lunch special of a "cheese-steak" (in a pita) with fries and a drink for $6.
Food is to die for!!!
simple and honestly a taste of Mexican cuisine
And you MUST visit their bakery!!! the flan is AMAZING not to mention the bread baked daily!!!!
These guys are great! I have been here a lot, and always come home with a ton of great stuff. They have a very nice selection of comics, graphic novels, shirts, and novelties. I have a subscription box there, and it changed my life! Thanks Guys!!
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.
Great selection, and Chaz's knowledge of music is unsurpassed. He makes incredible recommendations based on what you like. He hasn't missed a recommendation yet for me.
I kept telling my husband about how good the burgers taste at Only Burger. We finally were in the area and I surprised him with lunch. Before he even was half way done he was already planning our next visit and what he would order.
You want a great Burger that isn't greasy and actually has real flavor ..... this is your place.
This place is right near my house and such a convenient location for the triangle near Target shopping center and Southpoint mall. Yummy donuts, scrumptious biscuits, at Rise you really can't go wrong! As long as you can be a little patient and wait with the others in the out the door lines you'll realize it's more than well worth it! The food is ah-mazing and the servers are always friendly and bright. Their only open till 2p so push yourself out of bed and make it over there ASAP!!
I've seen more great music and musicians at Billsborough Music Hall in the last couple months than I have the previous 20 years. The musical diversity is amazing and will please everyone. Our favorite is Jazz Night on Wednesday's. DEM Guys is GOOOD!. The bar staff is friendly with great selections. They keep you coming back with a smile!
We recently played Bill West's Billsborough and had a heck of a good time. The staff was very friendly and welcoming, the choices of beverages was excellent, and the locals were warm and appreciative. Everyone seemed to be having a good time. I suspect it's not a well kept secret that Bill knows the biz from years of performing and knows how to treat his staff, clientèle, and entertainers. The room has such a great vibe to it. The remodeling he's done really enhances it. We can't wait to get back.
Beautiful inside, great beer specials, perfect acoustics, awesome staff, and a homey feel. Plus they book acts you're not going to see anywhere else in the area, such as Charlie Hunter.
I've been waiting for a music hall in Hillsborough, and Bill doesn't disappoint! Billsborough offers the best music and bar tenders in town, as well as a growing selection of drinks and an inviting and homey atmosphere. I love this place and am proud to call myself a regular. :)
I played recently at Billsborough Music Hall and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great music environment that's "dog friendly" and listener friendly. Bill West, the owner, really treats his audience and the musicians who perform there with respect. He's got a beautiful huge Newfoundland dog, Moose, who really made a big impression when Scott Sawyer and I played there. Can't wait to play at Billsborough again!
Billsborough is a great intimate live music venue, where the music is supreme. The people love it, cause Bill is the consumate host that knows how to show you a great time. The artists Love it cause they know Bill is a highly skilled singer/songwriter, (Artist) that knows the struggle. His experience playing and entertaining go hand in hand with his warm personality. This Brother exudes Love. The place is dog friendly too. I have played there and had many a dog to come up on the stage and hang out with the band'. - ) Not to mention a hand picked staff of great people and a fine selection of refreshments. In a nutshell, 6 words, "If you go, you will know".
I love music, but dislike big concerts. I'm more of a hang-in-the-garage-while-the-band-practices kind of gal and Billsborough is right up my alley! Cozy ambiance with great service! There is even a designated dance floor and an alcove for darts. Womens restroom was FABULOUS--cleanest (and nicest) venue bathroom ever! Looking forward to being able to visit again.
An awesome venue.So glad someone opened up the old Blue Bayou. It's very friendly and the music is outstanding.Don't forget that it is also dog friendly.
