Literally The Best Burger I've Ever Had! The atmosphere was cozy. The staff was prompt and courteous and anticipated our every need. The draft selection was great and the liquor special reasonable.

This Ninth Street bar is cozy and welcoming. The people are friendly. The drinks are big and well made. I order a Negroni made with Durham gin. It was well crafted and delicious. Next time we are trying the food. Thanks Dain’s Place for making Saturday night great.

A simple, neighborhood bar & restaurant. Not fancy, but a good place for watching sports, a pint, & fries.

Fantastic burgers and tots. Strong beer selection and friendly service. Wish I lived in the neighborhood because I'd be a VERY regular customer.

I've been to Dain's Place many times, and I always enjoy it. I advise that you get a hotdog, load it up however you like, and remember to ask for tater tots on the side! Top it all off with one of the many delicious beers available on draft. The service is always great, and it's got a unique cool vibe inside.

The ceiling fan is an engineering marvel and the bathroom graffiti is great. We had a burger and a hot dog. The burger was good and the hot dog was not terrible.More important though were the chili fries. The fries were perfect thin cut and crisp and the sweet chili went so well with the picked peppers. The portion was huge. Enough for a main or an appetizer for 4 or more people. As a party of two we left stuffed and couldn't finish anything.

The menu is simple, but everything is great. The staff is some of the best around. Great drafts and rotating drafts and bottles. Space is cozy. Terrific Durham institution.

Food was excellent and portions were large. My only beef with this place (pun intended) was the music...not a big deal when the food is this good though!

Great spot. Got in, got drinks, got tots. Super fast service, staff make quick rounds for anything you need. In a great location, very busy, growing area.

Really neat atmosphere. Great location. I subbed the 1000 island dressing for bbq sauce on my burger and was delighted with what I got. Delicious. One of the better classic burgers I've had in Durham.
One of the things I love about Durham is the flare for uniqueness and I didn't get that out of my burger. I'll try something different the next time to see if it is worth another star.

The burger was delicious and the beer was cold. You can build your on burger. The beer selection was good. The lady that waited on me was great.. the place was packed for lunch. There is a municipal parking lot across the street.

A solid bar for one night. A good beer selection for IPA and NON IPA lovers. If you want to invest some time too though, the bartenders and really chill and just generally normal people.
