Interesting place. Was in the area to visit family and we all went there on a Monday night. For an out of towner it wasnít the easist place to find, but well worth the effort. Very nice bar to the left and picnic tables to the right. You can order food at the bar, or they have a walk up window to order and it will be brought to you. The people were very friendy, beer was good and the service fine. And that was easily the best burger I had in a long long time!

Went here for lunch yesterday and quite enjoyed it. The food was pretty high quality, and the bartender working was a really cool dude. I was a little disappointed that they only have five selections (at least, when I was there), and three of them were fairly average. The other two I did enjoy, especially their Harvest brew. Very chill and laid-back location.

Interesting place located in downtown Durham! they have basically a fast food counter where you can order burgers and they give you a take away number or you can get full service from the bar. The bar it is. They had six things on tap. One was pretty solid, the other eh. The food was fantastic especially for the money. Parking is probably an issue during the day but there seemed plenty on street at night. Solid place, nice place to have in a neighborhood.

Their beer is OK, but their burgers are wonderful...pricey but worth every penny.

Located about half a mile from Fullsteam but its more downtownish so parking is a little tricker, but I did see a garage after I found a spot on the street. As for ambience picture a Five Guys (or casual burger join) with disco-ball lit brew kettles, a bar and beers that are actually pretty damn good. Short on cash so I had the $3 duck frites which accomplished what I expected them too. Samples are available for a buck each (4 ounces). Food is pretty cheap, prices are good and the beers, ranging from a golden ale to an imperial stout and two barleywines, were all solid to very good. Bartenders were helpful despite it being busy. "Table service" is available at the bar but you go to a window to order, and walk up to the bar with your beers, if you sit anywhere else. Despite this, the bartenders managed to do well despite having a full work-load. Seems like a very good addition to the Triangle beer scene. Oh yeah, gonna rerate this and boost the score just cause of the pastured beef. Because that is important to me. Go Bull City.

Lively neighborhood feeling place with patrons from bar regulars to families with young kids. Great burgers. They may not come out bleeding, but they were oozing with juices for me and the quality of the meat really did shine through, as well as the super fresh other ingredients. Beer snuck up on me, in a good way. The hopping rates seem to be considerably lower than what is currently standard for American beer, which sort of tricked me at first into being underwhelmed. By the end of the couple pints though, I realized the beers were in fact complex, balanced, and very well made, showcasing the fermentation and the malt. That may not speak well of me, but I came around in the end. Great place.

A great brewpub and eatery in Durham. There is a somewhat small bar and a number of long tables. If you sit at the tables, you need to go up to the kitchen and wait in line to place your order (but if you sit at the bar, you are served by the bartender). A fairly extensive tap list with some interesting seasonals (bitter and stout with coffee and chili powder - just to name a few). The beers were good, not great, but certainly palatable and interesting too. The food is quite awesome- great burgers (from grass-fed cows), all-natural ingredients, you really canít go wrong! I was quite impressed by this place, I wish I could be a regular here!

Been here probably a half dozen times now, in the company of family, friends, neighbors, and teammates, and itís been almost universally loved. After a slightly rough start - the layout is such that the brewery almost couldnít handle the initial crowds - the place has settled nicely into its own. Burgers are damn good, and while you do pay a bit more for your food politics, itís less than some other places in the Triangle (like Draft) and is fuckin tasty. Beers have ranged from unspectacular to very good, but I love the sessionable focus of most of their offerings and theyíre clearly headed in the right direction.

The idea of a brewery which specializes in burgers is wonderful. However, thanks to NC state law, all ground beef has to be burned so I donít see the point in doing a dedicated burger joint with some of the finest meat just to see it become dried out and tough. Anyway, I was already informed about the burger thing beforehand and I knew better. The duck frites are quite tasty. The beer is solid, though very "safe" and "English". I like the ambiance of the place and the service was very good.
