Good food and great service. Been here twice for retirement lunch for coworkers and they've done a great job handling our big table. The Pile was good. Fried chicken, fries, cheese, gravy. Comfort food on a plate. My friend said her burger was somewhat underwhelming.

Glad we stopped by for lunch. Beautiful patio for outdoor seating. Great beer selection as well as cocktail options and delicious sangria. Lots of regular menu options and daily specials but no kids menu. The portions were very big and nobody left hungry.

One order of the pile is enough of a meal into itself for two people. Excellent choice to have when you have been out drinking for a while and need a bite to eat. Will have to come back again. I also had the gauspacho soup and that too was amazing.

This is one of our favorite date spots in Durham. My wife and I try to make our way to Geer Street Garden at least once every couple of weeks; we sit at the bar, have a few drinks, and eat A LOT. It is perfect. The atmosphere is lovely, it feels like a family owned place where everyone cares. The bartenders are amazing (shout out to Jen!) and the food is exactly what it should be for this type of location. Delicious, fresh, local and seasonally inspired dishes without being unnecessarily fancy or expensive. We are big fans of their chicken wings (in my opinion the best in Durham), and love that they have a specials menu that changes often and keeps us coming back to see what fun new dishes they are offering that week.

Great restaurant. We ate outdoors on the picnic benches, which may not be the most comfortable for anyone with back issues. They do have indoor seating available. The food was great. I had the bacon cheeseburger which was cooked just as I liked it with great flavor. I'll admit, when I saw my friends fried chicken dishes served, the chicken looked like it had been overcooked. But after trying some, it was tender and delicious. We all enjoyed everything we got and would definitely come back. I know I'm going to get that fried chicken plate the next time! And thanks to our friendly server Kayla who made sure we were satisfied with our food and was attentive throughout our meal.

Great place to grab a quick drink or bite to eat. The Korean chicken was excellent. Within walking distance of Boxcar if you want to play some arcade games.

Was in Durham on vacation, this was our last meal of the trip and easily the best in my opinion! All the food tastes so fresh and the outdoor seating is quaint and peaceful. Will definitely come back if I’m in the area again.

One of my favorite places to eat in Durham. Salads are delicious with the perfect veggie to protein ratio. The fried chicken is crispy yet juicy. Great deviled eggs! Also, try The Pile and get the curry mayo dipping sauce.

Five of us for lunch on a sunny but chilly day. Sat outside and was super comfortable - they had heaters and good wind blockers. Service was fast, professional, attentive and funny. The Rubin was 13/10 for sure! Give this place a try, you will not be disappointed. UPDATE: Went back on 4/26/2022 for lunch.. it's Chinese Week and you gotta order the noodles... they were amazing!

I don't know how we've missed this hidden gem!We came since it was listed as a dog friendly spot. They sat us outside and brought out a water bowl for the pup! The outdoor and porch dining is picturesque, with plants and twinkle lights. All of the staff were really friendly. The food was quick and good, with lots of toppings on the salad. We're looking forward to coming back for Sunday brunch!

Decent food and friendly service. The outdoor patio can accommodate a large number of people. The menu friends toward more meat. I would have enjoyed more selection of vegetarian plates. The beer list is varied though not extensive.
