I visited with a group of friends and we were fortunate to get the one larger table inside. The food was excellent, but I will say there isn't a large selection, so hope they have something that calls to you. The atmosphere was good, not too loud since they don't accommodate many inside. Perfect for some conversation, drinks, and dinner.... More

This restaurant is in a refurbished gas station and has a cool vibe and ambiance. I got a pimento cheese sandwich and it was possibly the best one I've ever had! It came with a substantial salad with a good vinaigrette. My friends found good beer to have. We sat inside but there is a big heated outdoor area, as... More

So, we just happened on this place when meeting at a place up the hill. Thought that one was a food place but it's really a drinking establishment. Anyway, wandered down the hill to this place. She had a salad and I ordered a turkey club. Here's what I got: - a sandwhich on lightly toasted fresh rye with fresh... More

I'm from out of town attending an event in the area of this restaurant and found it quite by chance. It's located in what appears to be a warehouse district in an old gas station but nicely converted. Somewhat small and cozy upon entry but they have added additional seating in a patio which is enclosed for the season. Limited... More

A friend and I had the special....roast pork with sweet potato Au gratin and collards. It was absolutely the most delicious dinner.....the meat was so tender, the sweet potato was perfectly cooked and the collards were seasoned with a bit of hot pepper flakes. Our mates had chicken & waffles and the barbecue pork with the most interesting sweet and... More

Very good local beer selection: We had a delicious Full Steam and Trophy. Burger was quite good and the chicken arugula salad was great! Soup was rather salty but flavorful. Great wait staff, quick and friendly service. Fun place.

Excellent food, wait staff friendly and attentive(but not to much). I had the "special" of the day - Local Arugula salad with white beans and corn cakes- delicious. Pimento cheese sandwiches are great also! Indoor or outdoor seating...

An old service station refurbished to service your love of food. Artistic and creative hangout for modern Durham dwellers. Menu is simple but with inventive twists on some classics. Enjoy the outside covered patio. Even on a hot day it is comfortable. Make this a regular haunt.

We ate dinner, good sandwiches. Fast service and friendly staff. There is big outside seating area and slightly small area for inside seating. Music was loud. Prices are slightly on the high side. However, food was good, good quantity and quality.

We took my father here for an impromptu birthday dinner on a Thursday night. We'd all just completed a family run so were very casual, but still fit in! Our server accommodated our large party of 7 with multiple checks and graciously accommodated our homemade cake- and added candles and serving! They have now earned me as a customer for... More
