Not a lot of parking around. I sat at the bar and got a beer flight. The beers were fantastic. Bartender was super nice. Made my own burger. Food came out very fast. Juicy, hot, pink as requested. Delish! Would get a fried egg on it next time. Duck fat shoestring fries. Good for fries, but nothing to write home... More

We went before a Bulls game with our boys 10 & 13. We shared a bunch of different wings, waffle fries. My husband and I had a couple of beers while the kids played pinball. The good and beer were both very good. It was a nice atmosphere with outside tables available as well.

If you are visiting Durham, you HAVE go to Bull City Burger & Brewery. I had the bacon and blue burger and it was one of the best burgers I have had anywhere. Pretty much everything is prepared onsite, and it tasted like it. The menu of in-house brewed beer was a diverse mix of beer types, and the staff... More

Ordered the Green Monster burger (I think that's what it was called). It did not disappoint. The variety of burgers and toppings was really cool. Also loved the beer options, both in-house brews and external. They've even got this funky automated wine-dispensing machine. Gets crowded, and noisy, but it you don't mind that, it's a great place.

We went with family friends and all of our kids. The food was great! The adults had great beverages and relaxed and the kids could eat and be loud without bothering anyone. Took us a minute to find the menus and see how it worked. You go to the counter and order food, they give you a number and you... More

We went for dinner with a couple of families. We had some food allergies in our party and we were easily accommodated. The burger was fresh and great tasting. The prices seemed reasonable to me. The only downside is if you want veggies on your burger they must be in season as the restaurant only uses farms near by so... More

This place is incredible with homemade been and some of the best burgers you have ever tried. Everything is local grown and fresh. Incredible burgers and several varieties.

BCBB is a tasty, trendy treat. They sell burgers, fries, onion rings, fried pickles, desserts etc. and have a full bar. Great beers and innovative Durham inspired coctails make this a good touristy spot. I hate/love that tomatoes are only available when in season. Yes, that is how much they care to only sell the best.

We decided to grab a quick burger before our show at the Durham Performing Arts Center. The average cost of a burger and fries and drink is $15. Sounds like a lot, though all of their product is locally grown. All made from scratch. If it's nice out, enjoy the patio with some friends.

Each time I come to visit my daughter and son-in-law at Duke, the trip isn't complete without a trip to Bull City Burgers. They make everything in the restaurant from scratch except the ketchup because of the hundreds of pounds of tomatoes needed to make a small amount of ketchup. They know because they tried it! Excellent food, great service.... More

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...
