Came here for after dinner drinks. Ended up having some dips as well as we got sucked into trivia. We almost won too! Drinks were cold, and service was attentive. Definitely recommend if you are staying in downtown Carrboro; it doesn’t get much more convenient.

We went on a slow, rainy Monday night. Of all the restarants that we visited in our one week holiday in Carrboro, these were the slackest servers we found in any restaurant. Our server got both our orders wrong. My fish tacos were ok, my...More
