Reasonably priced and food came out fast. Unfortunately, the cashier neglected us twice before we placed our order, so hence the slightly lower rating. I liked my tuna salad sandwich and the couscous was surprisingly good. Complemented the sandwich well! I got one of their plates (the Slammer) and it was decent.

A great find! Went for lunch and the whole experience was pleasant. I got the lunch combo with half chicken salad sandwich (so so good!!) which came with two sides. The sweet potato fries and grits were both awesome! My 5 year old got the smoked hot dog and chips and the hot dog was indeed quite smokey - I liked it, he didn't. The house chips are delicious. Prices were awesome too! Parking was the only nightmare.

What a fun place! Huge, rooftop deck and fun ambiance. An obvious favorite spot for Duke folks, this place is a must visit. First, you stand in line and yes, there will be a line to order your food! Once you get your chance, you are greeted with that Durham charm sprinkled with a bit of sarcasm and wit... Love it! We sat and the food was brought to us quickly. I had the Mama's Big Bird with Greek Couscous. Two pounded out chicken filets, breaded and fried. House made pickles and bacon. Just lovely. Couscous was good as well, next time will opt for the slaw. My wife had the Gobble Down with potatoes. Exactly what she was looking for, delicious! Of course we had a bottle of wine, because why not!? Excellent stop for sure. Worth noting, they are known for their burgers and as I saw them go by, I could see why... Next time!

I loved the smoothie “greena colada” I will be back to try them all. I ordered a “cowgirl bowl” tbh I didn’t like it but that's because I had no idea what stoneground cheddar grits was, but not bad. I like the service even there was a lot of people I got my breakfast fast, I loved sitting at the bar.

Absolutely a great restaurant to discover. Cute and unique, plenty of outside seating, and even rooftop dining area. Parking is a bit of hassle, especially during busy hours. Friendly and upbeat staffs. Not too crazy about the order set up; you place your order up front as soon as you enter, before you sit down. This may not seem like a big deal, but they get really packed on the weekends and you could be standing in a long line outside the restaurant instead of getting seated right away. But if you don't mind the wait, the food are definitely worth it. I ordered the Slammer (2 eggs with bacon or sausage patties, taters, grits or fruits and a flapjack). Everything comes out hot and fresh. The patties were of high quality meat, juicy and flavorful. The cheese grits are delicious. And the pancake was fluffy and perfectly cooked. Great first time experience, will definitely return when back in the area.

Tried their trendy burger. It was pretty good but too much bacon and buns could be improved. The cinnamon roll was disappointing. Icing was slightly bitter and the roll itself tasted stale. The sausage patty was super moist and delicious

Reasonably priced, food came out fast, and service was good all in all! I can see why this place is so popular! I liked my tuna salad sandwich and the couscous was surprisingly good. Complemented the sandwich well!

This really is a very unique dining experience! They’ve basically taken an old gas station and converted it into a restaurant with full bar! There’s even rooftop seating available with a great view of the surrounding area. My friend and I ordered the wings, fish sandwich, and chicken sandwich with some drinks and sides. The food was good, but a little bland, and heavily relied on the sauces they create for every dish. Everything was fresh and hot, and the drinks were deliciously refreshing. There were a decent amount of flies invading our space but a simple move resolved that immediately. I’d come back to try some different items.

We thoroughly enjoyed our first time here. We came for brunch on the weekend and sampled their libations as well as a biscuit and breakfast platter. Love the local partnerships for coffee and atmosphere. It’s great to see Durham growing and diversifying over the years. Even with a line outside we ordered and food came quickly. Highly recommend!
