Here at the WN, around 4:30, before the crowds. The city of Hillsborough is in the process of wishing the sidewalks. The sidewalk in front of the WN is complete and double the size of the outdoor seating. Excellent! This service is superb right now and the beer is cold and good. Sitting outside enjoying being in the soloman watching the traffic and people go by, itand it's always shady here at the wooden nickel.

This place is all about the wings, and they are very good. But, the pub is small and you will wait for seating. The beer selection is outstanding.

I am easily impressed by a bar/restaurant that can draw a capacity crowd on a Monday evening without an NFL game on the TV. Such a place is the Wooden Nickel in downtown Hillsborough. Park in back and come in through the rear door if Churton Street has no parking available. This place is hopping. So you start with the beers. A large selection of craft beers and, of course, serious IPAs - local, regional and from further afield. Then the food. It will not disappoint. I ordered a smoked breast of chicken with havarti cheese and heirloom tomatoes all on some truly exceptional sourdough bread. The fries part of the garlic fries were unexceptional but the garlic was amazing - the kind that bites your tongue! Really the only disappointment was that they appear to have taken the fried green tomatoes off the menu. Maybe popular demand can cause them to come back. Speaking of coming back, I surely will.

Very neat "Hole In The Wall" Restaurant. Eclectic, good music, good food, good atmosphere and fun. Loved the fish tacos and black beans. One of many good Food and Drink establishments in the wonderful town of Hillsborough NC.

My husband and I decided to visit Hillsborough for an anniversary trip daycation. However, because our trip occurred on a Monday, our options for restaurants open for business at dinner were limited. Always to be determined, we searched through downtown looking for a place to eat that was open. We found Wooden Nickel Pub and it was hopping! Nearly full to capacity, we had to wait a little while for a seat and service, but it was well worth it. We each had the burger special of the day. It was juicy and tasty with just right char. The bun was a ciabatta and was so good! The fries were like homemade with the potato skin and were very crispy! We ate outside on the front sidewalk under the canopy. The weather was great so this was a fantastic way to enjoy it and a nice conversation with my husband. The only downside to this experience was the restaurant inside was very loud. However, at a pub in the evening that's what would be expected. The outside where we actually ate was a more desirable level of noise. Overall it was a great dining experience.
