Expect your food to be served and your meal to be a simple burger, all is good cooked to temperature food. The fries could have a bit more substance to them, thin fries make for messy fingers and lots of finger licking...

Awesome staff and beer selection was great. GET THE PICKLE CHIPS, they were wonderful, crispy, not greasy and came with a nice chipotle white dip. Can be tricky to find with construction and parking could be hard. Some street parking available but limited. Great pre-Bulls...More

Upbeat, enthusiastic staff, excellent duck fat frites with aioli, and fresh craft beers. What more can a simple man ask?

The seating is long picnic like tables and benches so great for a large group as long as the restaurant isn't busy. Good beer selections (per others since I'm not a beer drinker), the 2 mixed drinks I tried were okay but nothing special, a...More

Bull City Burger and Brewery is a locally owned, independent restaurant and craft brewery located at 107 East Parrish Street in downtown Durham, NC. We opened March 2011.

We offer family friendly dining with a children's play area, as well as a semi-private meeting room for business gatherings, events and presentations all within full view of our own brewery. The restaurant is very much "farm-to-fork," working closely with North Carolina pasture-raised beef farmers supplying beef with no added hormones and antibiotic-free, that we grind daily to make our hamburgers and all-beef hotdogs.

The menu is streamlined with nearly everything produced on-site including house made buns, sauerkraut and bacon. We use no artificial sweeteners, no high fructose corn syrup, and no hydrogenated oils. We like to say we are like fine dining in a burger joint.
