Came twice for dinner- across from hotel. Pimento cheese is great- salad great- good roast chicken. Pizza is something I will not get again.
Place is cute, clean, good servers, and fresh food. They are allergy conscious as several of us had shellfish allergies.
Will come back when I stay here.

Traveled to see our team beat --oops I mean play Duke and stopped here on way in and out. We had snacks, basically and drinks. We liked everything we tried: tater tots, hush puppies, pizza and pimento dip. The cocktail drinkers seemed to enjoy their various libations (I drank wine, limited by the glass selection so if you do either or, I;'d go for the cocktails. Staff very friendly and solicitous and we were especially grateful the kitchen was still open after the game! I'd go back....

Our daughter suggested this hip bistro and we are happy that she did. The service was top notch and the food varied and delish. We had the beer salad, which was fresh and sweet. Also the Shrimp and Grits and pizzas to share. Really delish.

We ordered two pizzas to go. One was a margheritta and one was lamb sausage. Our hotel was right next door so the food should have still been hot by the time we reached our room. Both pizzas were cold and had to be heated in the microwave, which of course made the crust limp. Taste was below average. We requested napkins and were given two cocktail napkins. We also asked for paper plates but they didn't have any. Overall, we ended up throwing away more than half of the food. Not worth it.

I really don't know what happened here, but I hate to hear that very sorry about your experience. We put out our food to go piping hot, so it's disconcerting to hear your description. Sorry that was your experience. We don't look to do Anything at Local average, much less below average. I encourage you to dine in and try us again when you're back around. I bet you'll love it!

Thanks,
Paul Jones

While in Durham i stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn. I discovered Local 22 while taking a morning stroll, and decided to come back for lunch. The food was fantastic. I ended up ordering take out three more times from this restaurant as I was spending all day at Duke hospital. The staff was very nice and wanted me to know they could make any of my requests vegan. food was so fresh tasting, I highly recommend you try this restaurant whether you're vegan or not.
