Top restaurant recommendations from locals

“An original in every sense of the word. One of the earliest breweries on the Durham scene, it's been a neighborhood staple since 2010. You can't go wrong with any of their award winning beers but I'm currently loving the Durham 150.”

“Josh and I always share our food when we eat out so we can try more than one thing. This is one of the many reasons why tapas is a great dinner for us. If you can't decide what to order, your server will help you. Everyone here is fantastic and friendly. Don't overlook the specials on the board!”
