My kids got meat hamburgers and I was able to order one of the best vegetarian meals I have had in a long while. Great BBQ and the Hush Puppies were perfect.

Not inexpensive, tres cool fern bar for those who are self absorbed in the heart of the Republic of Carrboro. One can see and be seen. It is close to all the action. Staff are pleasant enough. Hip vibe.
