The burger was amazing, the environment was so cool! I really enjoyed all the signs. I built my own burger and I really liked the flavors! I also got a sweet potato and it was very delicious. I wish they had one in Michigan, I...More

We had a great experience there, the beers are good and the burgers are artisanals with great buns and good side options. The service is really friendly and the price is good. The tables are communal, sometimes is hard to find a spot where you...More

Food was pretty good but a little pricey. Too much salt on the fries. The hot dog may have been 100% beef but it was low quality--lots of fat and some gristle. Everything tasted alright. My biggest complaint is the cheap dinnerware. The fork had...More

We knew when we scored a parking spot directly in front, that we were in for a treat! We opted to sit at the bar vs placing our order at the back. We weren't familiar with the beers and wanted to sample. They have a...More

I've really wanted to like this place, but I just can't get past the fact that I've never had a better than average burger here. I've been here quite a few times now for a variety of occasions, and the burgers are just not that...More

This is a great little place in downtown Durham-lots of brews of their own and fell-brewers' making, with a good selection of burgers and other local foods

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... We are Durham's oldest brewpub and THE local pasture-raised classic beef burger of Durham.
