The drinks were great, and so was the food. I can't remember what I ate (drinks were REALLY good), but that my friend and I were very happy with the food. Heard it's closed, but possibly reopening in the fall? I hope so.

Unfortunately this place is closed. Too bad as the menu looked really good. Someone there said they were trying to reopen March 2016. Call before you go.

They have amazing food! You can't go wrong. My favorite is their mac and cheese. I usually order the bean burger, but every sandwich is delicious. The owner, Liz, is usually there and she is super nice. I can't believe they are closing. Hurry and eat there before February!

......thought we would stumble on such a fun place in downtown Raleigh NC? Not us-but we are so happy that we did! The place, the staff and the other patrons all reminded us of some of the fun & funky places we used to frequent in 'old' Austin TX Learned another 'new-to-us' food here. FRIED GREEN BEANS-you simply gotta get... More

Came for a business trip and wanted something quick. Got a sandwich. Was relatively affordable. Most folks seemed to be using the wifi as if this was a coffee shop.

Decent food at good prices. TheSteve Martin sandwich was too hot for me. They quickly replaced it with a superb mac and cheese. Comfy atmosphere. Killer drinks and a hysterical menu!

This was all worth it for the PomBR which was pbr with a splash of pomegranate juice. Who even thought of that? It was so good I had two. I got the sampler platter just for myself and the bartender did not judge. Everything on it was great, especially the hush puppies. The price was of my tab was insanely... More

Love the Borough. This happening lil' spot is fantastic. The owner and her staff are very cool and pour very good drinks. Since my very first visit four years ago I have been hooked. Rocket, Hannah, and Arthur are my favorites. The atmosphere is chill and trendy. The customer base is representative of a diverse demographic. The food is really... More

always feel welcome when we come here. Only problem I would have is there is never enough tables. Overall though I would say if you are in the downtown area stop by for a drink or one of their many appetizers.
