I had a blast, I was the only white person here that night and was greeted with open arms. The bartenders were amazing and even carried my drinks outside for me. The jerk chicken was so moist and flavorful I had to share it so others could say wow! You could see the cooks in the back smiling so you knew it would be great. The open mic is entertaining and the crowd is extremely friendly. The bathroom was horrible though because someone threw up everywhere.

Skewers has great service, even the bouncers out front are very professional. They have great food options. I especially like that you can order their food late late at night. They are always busy and everyone seems to love this place.

Love this place. Been coming here for years and everything just gets better! My favorite day to come here is on Wednesdays for the open mic that they host. The owner & staff are friendly and quick on their feet. Always recommend this Lowkey spot.

I'd known about Skewers for years, but a friend suggested it during a recent outing, and it was lovely. Great people there, very friendly. It's not the 'most shiny' crayon in the box, but it's a place that makes me feel at home in Durham.

Downtown dive bar gem. Wonderful food and an exemplary dirty Durham space. Please just fix the damn draft beer thing.

The hookah is great, the food is better. One of the few places that offers hookah, food, drinking, and dancing. Get there early on the weekends if you want a seat.

Prince the host of Wednesday open mic at Skewers is incredibly talented. He plays with songs with a familiarity of childhood friends. A warm and gracious host can make even the most timid guest feel confident enough to put on an award winning performance. The food was fresh and hot and is a go to for tourists and locals alike. Go and be wowed.

They got really stingy during the pandemic and started giving 1 ranch with 12 wings. I understand the strain on your business but how much does a cup of ranch cost?
