Burger was good. Everything else ordered was room temp not hot. Service was varied between inattentive and over attentive. Like 3 people would check on me for about 2 minutes straight when I needed nothing. But when I did need something none of the three bartenders were available or paying attention. Often talking amongst themselves instead of interacting with their guests. Ok place though. I'll try again and hope they improve

Loved it. The restaurant was packed full of folks that came for the UNC game yet we still received lightning fast service. Add on to that each and every waitress/waiter that walked by asked us if we needed anything else. They worked as a team and it really showed performance wise. Speaking of wise, it'd be just that if you were to drop by if you're ever in town. 😉BUT WAIT!!! THERE'S MORE!! If meat and beer isn't your style check out People's Coffee, their cozy little coffee shop next door. It's a great place to hide away from the commotion, if you so choose. Also, their coffee and pastries are quite literally "The Bomb". So basically this whole establishment is like a win, win, win?Alright I'm done with my little rant, just go check them out for yourselves. I wouldn't waste my time writing all this mess for NO reason now would I? 😂

An easy entry, order at the counter setup expressing a positive and friendly manner by the staff. A satisfyingly diverse offering list available, I think their selection of beer is impressive for a relatively small operation. Food is delicious, a conclusion shared among those of us who frequent the establishment for occasional lunches or a stop-off for a brief get together. I have to say each time I have ordered beef based dishes, preparation was exactly as ordered, i.e. no rare for medium, etc. Someone knows how to use the thermometer properly, a rare find these days. Reasonably priced with simple small tables and chairs arrangement, self-serve drinks with season packets, not dispensers. If you are looking for a fine lunch plate with a tasty beer or tea, Town Hal Burger and Beer will fulfill your needs quite well, I'm sure.

Town hall had a stellar draft selection. I had two different double ipas which are hard to find. The menu is simple. The salads are excellent. There are two sections of the restaurant. The left side has the bar, seating tables, and some games. The right side is kinda like the take out section. There are tables in this area, but no bar (from what I could tell). The staff is attentive and friendly. If you are in the area I would recommend checking it out.

This is a super friendly place with great burgers, great beer, and a clean eating environment. You'll have to wait a little bit for your burger to come to you, but that's a fair exchange for getting to customize your burger just how you like it and having it made from some really fresh ingredients. It also gives you time to enjoy a brew or two if that's your thing. PLUS, the toilets are clean here, and seem to be kept clean regularly, even as the crowd grows. Bonus!

Every time I go to Durham this is a must go to! I love how you can make your own burgers, and it's always delicious! The staff are great and the fast. One of my favorite restaurants in RDU!

The burgers are absolutely amazing. All of the ingredients were extremely fresh and seasoned to perfection. I got the Town Hall burger and it was delicious. If you're looking for a (huge) delicious burger for a great price I highly recommend.

I can't believe it took me 6 years to find out this place existed. Best burger I've had in a long time. The staff was super friendly and you can't beat the prices especially for the area. I recommend everyone stop by and check it out at least once.

Some of the best burgers I've EVER had, and I don't say that lightly. The "normal" size patty is a generous half pound of very high quality beef, ground in store and actually cooked to order. I'm usually cautious about ordering a medium burger but they NAIL it. Despite the massive selection of toppings and condiments on offer everything is top notch. They don't skimp on anything. I've eaten at Gordon Ramsey Burger in Vegas, where the burgers cost 3x as much . . . and Town Hall is as good or better!

My family and I have eaten here a couple of times and we really enjoy it. There are a few things that really stand out: -Mikey, I'm not sure if he's the manager, the owner, or something else, but he is very friendly, outgoing, and helpful. He really pays attention to his customers, and when he saw I had two young boys, went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. -Turkey burgers, my mother-in-law enjoyed it so much on our first visit, she and my wife got it again on the second visit. -Outdoor seating but food is brought to you. I really like that they have two sections - one for full service and one where you order, find a table, and they bring your food to you. For those of us that are still a bit hesitant to eat inside, this was a great option. All of the food we have gotten here has been good, but I really wanted to point those things out. If you, like me, prefer a little pink in your burger, order it even less done than you want. They are cooked just a bit more than you want, but the flavor is still good.

The burger tasted awesome! The beauty was that the have a bar area where you can have a table service but if you just want to eat a burger and drink a beer you can choose to sit down at their quote on quote self-service area and the pay less tips. It's a great way to have more customers, including those who are traveling alone or dining alone.

Town Hall Burger hit the spot for us tonight. Although we had to wait about 30 minutes for our meal, everything came out hot and delicious. Mikey outside was extremely attentive to every table, as were the other staff. Even though we live about 10 miles away, the excellent service and great food will bring us back.

Not only was there a great selection of beers here but the food was absolutely ON POINT. Hands down best burger I've had from a restaurant. Gotta recommend the Tar Heel Burger that I had, it was so good. The picture I have of the fried pickles is after we ate half of it already, the order is HUGE. If you like spicy ask for some of the habanero sauce. All in all, what a gem. Very tasty place and good beers, good service.

This place is very good despite the high prices! Be prepared to be pay $20.00 for a 1 burger, drink and a side. Other than that their burgers are delicious and so are the salads! not a big fan of the wings though and the tacos are overpriced.

The food is excellent. But if you order a plain hamburger be prepared for to come out with all kinds of stuff on it the complicated orders they got perfect but the plain hamburger didn't. But once the mistake was fixed the food was delicious. And the servers are nice the lady dining manager not so nice. Other than those two things I was given at a five-star

I had the California burger medium. Probably the best burger I’ve had in the last year. Cooked perfect and really well seasoned. I also had the poutine fries with gravy which were OK but needed way more cheese curds.

Large portions and fair prices. Huge draft beer selection, and a respectable wine list. No booze, but sound veg friendly choices.

This place sets a new bar for gourmet burgers. Its hands down the best place to get a burger in the Raleigh-Durham area and here's why. 1. Everything is home or locally made. The Turkey, Lamb, Quinoa, and black bean patties are all made in house. The Impossible burger comes from the legendary company that originated the plant based burger patty. Their beef is never frozen and comes from a family owned farm called Wolverine. 2. They make all of their own sauces and salad dressings. 3. Their bread comes from a local bakery called the bread shop which they receive every day. 4. Consistency.. this place does not cut corners, they've been making it through a global pandemic by sticking to these simple yet effective business models. 5. Their staff is friendly and knowledgeable, a lot of them have worked there for years because they believe in the company.

Hubby and I had their Cowboy burger which was great. I liked the combination of onion straws and fried jalapeno. Friends husband had Mac and cheese burger which he loved. Lived the fried man's cheese. My friend enjoyed her Carolina burger which she said was very flavorful. Everyone was happy with their choice of burger. BTW , their fries are awesome too.

Great service, large beer selection and the burgers were perfectly done. We visited on a Tuesday and it was quiet but still busy for the Covid-19 times. The wings were also good portion sizes with tasty sauces.

Whenever I've been the wings and burgers have always been tasty. The atmosphere is great as is the customer service. Outdoor seating is pretty good and they respect covid safety measures. My complaint is online ordering. I've had 3 of my 5 past online orders either cancelled or forgotten about. If you're coming in to eat this is a great spot. If ordering online, be sure to call a head because you'll likely have to wait 15-20 minutes longer than your original pick up time.

Customers are informed before they enter to have a mask on. Several customer didn't have a mask and we're not turned away or told to do so. I was very uncomfortable to enter. Food was good but need to work on the other part.

So many times I'll say that I will try a new burger place, and somehow I always end up at Town Hall. The burgers are great, the service is usually pretty quick, and the staff is overall helpful. I let myself order the fries last week, and they were a treat. Of the many burgers I've had there over the years, I've only had one or two that I would categorize as "just ok." One note: recently they have inexplicably started putting the lettuce on the bottom of the burger, so that if you're getting take-out, once you get it home the lettuce is wet, dark-green, and essentially inedible. You may want to explicitly request the lettuce on top. Overall, this is your everyday, high-quality burger joint; not fancy, but always fits the bill.

I've been hounding my son for weeks to get me some Town Hall food. I didn't eat breakfast before I left for the salon. Anthony picked me up at 1. We get there by 1:45 order, wait to be served at the curb seating. We were on our way home by 2:35. I'm in my glory. Next time I'll order the kids burger. I think I can handle that. Food was great and I got my tater tots 😋

I went for the first time here for an early dinner. Staff was great and food was good too. We got the BBQ tots and I got a cheeseburger with fries and my honey ordered sweet Thai chili wings. The wings were very good except for the drumsticks, flats were better. The burger pattie is honestly too thick and not as juicy as it needs to be.

The burgers here are large and juicy and the fries are really good. Most of the visits have been good except for the most recent visit two days ago. The buns on the California burger we ordered were cold and the burger was warm and not hot. We may go back another time to see if it was an anomaly.

Great local burger joint. Everything is good. It's usually pretty busy, but tucked away in a location that's easy to miss if you don't know it's there.

Great selection of beers. Great burgers. Good atmosphere. Enough TVs to watch a game, but not so many that it feels like a sports bar with TVs everywhere you look. Good for kids too. Good local chain doing good in NC.

Being next to a hotel I frequently stay at for work, I've been able to visit this place a few times. Every variety of burger that I've tried there has been amazing so far but the California might be my favorite. The sweet potato fries come with a delicious cinnamon dip that is so good. The service is friendly and fast. I would definitely recommend this place if you're looking for a great burger.

When I finally got my burger it was good. They apparently gave my first burger order to someone else. Once realized they didn't explain it but kept pretending the kitchen was busy. Meanwhile the rest of our table crowd of 5, who all ordered at the same time, had food and were eating. That soured the experience for me. I didn't like the skinny fries. Prefer the potato flavor of a heartier fry like Five Guys offers. Menu is confusing and fries should be included or get better fries. They are so small anyway they wouldn't lose much. Burger good though but kind of a miss for me on first visit!!

A friend brought me here a few weeks ago; I got the fried chicken coconut style. It is a mix of sweet and fresh tasting chicken sandwich. I love the sweet potato waffle fries. It's not your typical burger place. They have several proteins to choose from, including a bean burger. Fantastic atmosphere with upbeat music and friendly staff.

The food is delicious. I really love getting the wings and a salad (not what they're known for) but the recipes are great. Whoever is hiring the staff is doing a great job, always finding cool and energetic team members!

Not your average burger. I had an Ahi Tuna Burger with a basket of fries and a basket of onion straws. My better half had the Lamb burger. The service was a bit confused tonight. I hope it is not a regular problem. The food was excellent. It was a good night for sitting outside.

Nice beer selection and friendly staff. My wife got a chicken sandwich and it was great. Juicy chicken that had good seasoning. I got wings that were slightly overdone and my child got tenders which turns out to be a breast filet that is breaded, cooked and then cut into tender size pieces. The chicken was still juicy but the breading should have had at least a little salt in it. The chicken ended up tasting floury which makes it feel like it's dry. My wife also got loaded fries which were as to be expected of loaded fries. Overall I would go back and try a burger or chicken sandwich but the wings are nothing special. Guess that's why it's called Town Hall BURGER and not town hall wings.

SERIOUSLY THE BEST!!! We have not eaten here since they opened, but we were grocery shopping next door and of course hungry so decided to try this joint out again. I hate HATE that we have not been coming here since the beginning. This has quickly become our favorite burger place. The BBQ totes.... amazing. The apple pie.....amazing. The chocolate torte......amazing. Then the burgers, are absolutely fabulous!!! If you like a really juicy quality burger this is the place. They will not disappoint. Side note, in the bar area is full table service, the main entrance is order and then they bring the food to you.

Thankful for the other good reviews since I was traveling through and looking for food. Decided to stop by and glad I did. Burgers are amazing. I had the mac and cheese burger which to my surprise had fried mac and cheese. Delicious. Wife had the western burger and it was juicy and great too. Friendly staff even when it was very busy. Will definitely stop by again next time we are up that way. I wanna try the lamb burger they have next.

My visit here was a terrific experience - the staff was super friendly, quick, and the food portions were huge (all except the shrimp basket) but everything my family ordered came out delicious - burgers, kids quesadilla meals, chicken sandwich, coconut fried chicken, and tenders! Their fried pickles basket was a very large portion as well and tasted great. We will definitely be back!!!

Everything is perfectly cooked. The burger portions are very generous. Sauces are to die for. There are no bad choices on the menu. They are good about special requests and pack to-go orders efficiently.

Cashier friendly she gets 5 stars. Ordered Turkey burger with onion straws on the side and sweet potato fries. Turkey burger is definitely in my top 2 in the Triangle and it was nice and hot. I love their sweet potato fries, but not today they were barely warm so disappointed. The onion straws had a cool temp to them so my sides get a 3. Normally my sides are nice and hot

This place was crowded on this date. I guess it’s because the food is so good. I got a grilled chicken salad. They have big salads. You will not go away hungry. My son loves their burgers. He says they are better than most places. It’s bigger. My wife had a different burger. She gets hers without the bun. There is a bar also, but we didn’t visit it. Outdoor seating is nice too.
