Only stopped in for one drink (did not order food) after walking back from dinner elsewhere. Great atmosphere and would go again.

This is an above average restaurant with very good burgers, fish and chips, wings, etc. The price is reasonable the service fast and friendly. Nothing fancy but plenty of fun.

Whenever I am in Cary and that is only twice a year. We always go to Carolina for wings. Their other food is great too, but the dry rub on the wings will make anyone a wing fan! Their nachos are also top rate. I...More
