Bull City Burger and Brewery: It's love in a bun

Posted By on Fri, Mar 25, 2011 at 1:50 PM

If you have $15 in your pocket, you cannot starve in Downtown Durham: Within a seven-block radius you can find chicken and waffles, paninis and po’boys, venison and veal, salads, scallops and sausage, plus tortas, crepes, pork—and even rabbit liver.
