Let me begin by saying that the ordering situation here is very unsatisfactory. I've been here a couple times and the people who are taking your order at the front are not attentive and it's hard to hear over the kitchen which is immediately behind...More

This place has a casual atmosphere with a view of the on-site brewery. Everything is supposed to be as close to natural as possible. The staff was super nice but the burger was not what we hoped for. The burgers were somewhat dry and pressed...More

Staff was great, place had good atmosphere. But $35 for 2 good burgers (beef seemed unseasoned and buns were dry) with pimento cheese and all the fixings. Enjoyed but probably will not return as I thought it was expensive for what you get.

The burgers are excellent, my daughter is a vegetarian so wasn't sure if they would have anything but they did and she loved it. They have Cane sugar soda, the dark cherry was so good I never even had a beer. Recommend the duck fries.

Bull City Burger and Brewery is a locally owned, independent restaurant and craft brewery located at 107 East Parrish Street in downtown Durham, NC. We opened March 2011. The restaurant serves lunch and dinner 7 days per week with approximately 90 seats inside plus 60 seats of outside year round patio dining. We offer family friendly dining with a children's play area, as well as a semi-private meeting room for business gatherings, events and presentations all within full view of our own brewery. The restaurant is very much "farm-to-fork," working closely with North Carolina pasture-raised beef farmers supplying beef with no added hormones and antibiotic-free, that we grind daily to make our hamburgers and all-beef hotdogs. We work with other farmers growing vegetables such as tomatoes, cucumbers for pickles, and lettuce. The menu is streamlined with nearly everything produced on-site including house made buns, sauerkraut and bacon. We use no artificial sweeteners, no high fructose corn syrup, and no hydrogenated oils. We like to say we are like fine dining in a burger joint. We make the mustard, the slaw, the pickles, the mayo, the aioli, the hotdogs, the relish, the...
