Very good food and great service. Pimento and kale dip was good to put on top of the duck frites. Pickle chips are really good just needed to be fried longer. Burger was so good that I forgot to take a picture.
Tap ales were perfect pairings for food options; only wish they had an amber ale.

Thought the beer selection was average but still good. The burgers seem to really rely on the sauces or secondary items. The patties themselves taste unseasonably and bland. But the condiments and secondary items made them worthwhile. Super friendly staff and no real wait times. I'd go back again if asked.

Bull City Burger and Brewery in downtown Durham is so great!🍺 They have delicious sides including my favorites: fried pickles and Duck Frites! Juicy #burgers, and freshly brewed beer — all in a casual atmosphere. This independent, locally owned, farm-to-fork restaurant focuses on #sustainability and also has a good variety of #vegan options! 😋 They make everything in-house, including grinding the beef!

Burgers are good and high quality ingredients-however it’s just not our go to spot due to cost per burger. The fried pickles and French fries make great additions to the meal. The hot dog for the kids menu is more sausage/kielbasa like-spiced in a good way- but not ideal for our 1.5 toddler. He loves the fries though!

I am in town for business and a friend recommended this place. It exceeded my expectations in every way! I love chimichurri, but I’ve never tried it on a burger before. It was absolutely mouthwatering and cooked perfectly. The beer I tried was made from apples grown at a local farm. Whenever I travel, I try my best to support local business and stay away from chains so this was a nice cherry on top. If I’m ever back up this way I will definitely be coming back.

Absolutely fantastic every time. The sweet potato fries are covered in brown sugar and are so darn good. They have a wonderful selection of housemaid sodas! They make my bourbon drinks so well. The service is great. The atmosphere is cool. There's a patio and chocolate peanut butter cake!! 😎😎

True to its namesake, come here for delicious burgers and beer. We went on a Saturday night in the beginning of November and they had a very long line, a great sign that the food will be worth it.
What I never expected with visiting a restaurant in the South was that tomatoes are considered a seasonal item, so all of the menus said they were gone for the season. But every other topping was, thankfully available and they also offer a wide variety of sauces. It was my first-time having pimento cheese on a burger and I’m not sure how I’ll ever go back to American. The burger was cooked perfectly, very flavorful and was a great portion size. An abundance of fries that were all crispy and delicious. I enjoyed that you could choose how many beers you wanted in the flight and loved the board it was served with.
The location is right in downtown so you’ll find street parking and a few lots as well as a garage close by. It had your typical mico-brewing atmosphere and was just a great experience for an easy Saturday night dinner. If I lived nearby, I’d be back for sure. Even with it being very busy, the staff was efficient and friendly.

The food was very delicious! Definitely make sure you take the time to read the menu. We felt rushed to order everything up front (out first time here) and made some mistakes that we wouldn’t have. The ingredients are fresh and you can tell! We would come back if we were in the area but wouldn’t seek it out again…

Came for lunch for our first visit. Food was pretty good. However, I don’t like seeing credit card processing fees passed along to consumers directly. Build it into your prices or offer a cash discount, but don’t charge me 3% for using my credit card. I appreciate a business wanting to pay its employees better, but I have no idea if that claim is legit or not. All I see is an extra fee for coming to eat at your restaurant. Since I pulled up the menu online just to see what I wanted to order, I didn’t even see the notice about the fee until after paying. At least put a sign up on the register or something.

We went back a 2nd time and I had to give them 5 stars. The food is delicious and the service is still great. I hope they keep up the great work. The prices were a bit steep but you can understand it because of the location and the fact that they are serving organic homemade food. The sodas are all homemade too without all the additives that are found in store bought sodas.

We've visited this spot a few times now when we're in town visiting family, and we absolutely love it. The service is both insanely fast and friendly, and our appetizers are always out no sooner than we've managed to take a seat and settle in, with our actual meals close behind. Everything here is fresh, thoughtfully made, and with a ton of different options and unique flavors. Their burgers are amazing, with dozens of different toppings to choose from. Their house made organic sodas are phenomenal, and we often talk about them for days after the meal. An absolute must on their menu is, of all things, some fries: the duck frites are hands down the best fries I've ever had. So much flavor! The laid back ambience really caps off the experience every time. Great restaurant, especially if you love a good burger with a unique and very creative touch.
