On Friday Jon and I finally got to Bull City Burger and Brewery. We went with Tammi and Scott.
This is a burgers, hot dogs, and fries place in downtown Durham. All the ingredients are local and all the food is made in house. You know, all that locavore stuff.
We arrived at 6:30, right before the 7:00 rush. The place quickly became packed. The set up his very beerhall: long tables that you share, and you really have to vulture to find a spot. But, you know, worth it.
They do beer, but I don’t drink beer. Jon tried their seasonal harvest flavor and said it was quite good. I’ll take his word for it.
One of their more interesting features in an enomatic: and automated wine dispenser machine. Tammi decided to give it a try. You buy a card, place some money on it, and take said card to the enomatic. You insert the card, pick your wine and voila: wine for you.
So that was good.
I was more into the Boylan soda fountain. Their diet cola is really good! I filled many a mason jar.
We all got burgers. I got one with carmelized onions and gruyere. Jon and Scott had a special burger that had lamb and tzatziki on it. Tammi had a bacon and blue cheese burger. They were all good: juicy, fresh, etc. etc.
We got two kinds of fries: their duck fat and their regular “dirty” fries. The duck fat were good but I wish the fries were larger. The dirty were also very delicious. They know how to do their fried carbs.
I think I still like Only Burger for my burgers, simply because the Breakfast Burger is so amazing, but if I want a “special occasion” burger in a slightly more urban chic atmosphere then I’ll head downtown to Bull City Burger and Brewery. A good burger indeed.
