MMMM, burgers and beer

Love the Joan Jett (vegetarian) burger here. It always hits the spot. Their fries and onion rings are also awesome. Beers are great - love to try all the new seasonals. Great place in downtown to hang out with friends.

We ate here based on the recommendation of friends and I'm glad we did. You can have simple or elaborate burgers and all were excellent. They have a full bar but only serve the beer they brew there so no bud light. Which is fine. Also, the soft drinks were not Pepsi or coke. All good just thought it would... More

Love this place. Every ingredient, unless otherwise stated, is freshly made in house, from their pickles to their mustard, etc. I had their burger with pickles, lettuce, tomato, onion, jalapenos and blue cheese! Accompanied by their duck frites. My husband had one of their burgers, and ordered a hot dog to go. Great beers, and nice wines available through their... More

We love everything about BCBS! The beer, the burgers, the bread, the condiments--all made on site and absolutely delicious! Part of the fabulous, funky Durham scene!

If you want a good burger, this is the place to go! Fresh beef and vegetables from their garden, you can't beat the quality of ingredients for a reeaally good hamburger. It's made to order with awesome specialty fries. A really popular place among Durham foodies. The only reason I went with very good instead of excellent is the ambiance... More

Simply, I am obsessed with this restaurant. They have so many delicious options that I can't even control myself. They have a gluten-free and soy-free bun, which is important for me, and their soda is natural and amazing. The bull nuts and the dirty fries are fricken great. Your thing I will say is that sometimes the burgers or undercooked,... More

As a casual burger place it works. However, I seriously dislike being limited and telling me that I can't have tomatoes on my burger as they are "out of season locally" is ridiculous. Seriously, your lettuce is coming from Yuma, AZ, but that's okay? Oh, and at best the onions are from GA. Find a serious cause. Haven't been back.

Truly decent burgers and beer in a fun atmosphere with a play area for kids so you can enjoy in peace.
