    The seasonal craft beer selection on draught is very good. Lots of local choices. Appetizers were tasty. Don't expect top notch service, though. The bartenders basically handle everything.

    Another gem in downtown Raleigh, serving great food and Rochefort, Orval, Westmalle and Saison Dupont, to name only a few of their many Belgian beers. If only there was a bar like this in my hometown!

    There’s ample outdoor seating, a roof-deck for those who want a city view, and a sidewalk cafe for anyone who prefers to people-watch. There are plenty of microbrews available. - © 2013 BuzzFeed, Inc

    Get the Bloody Mary! Made from Times' house made mix, served with cucumber, pepperoncini pepper, olive, and a 6oz. PBR! One of the best I've ever had (note: I got mine with extra horseradish)

    Pork nachos are probably the most popular menu item; get them! Also, we have a pretty baller team of chefs so make sure to ask about the lunch/dinner specials. Beer is always excellent so try some :)

    The Kale Caesar salad is my favorite and they always have great Belgians and local beer on draft. Great for weekday lunch or happy hour.

    Their hamburger is rated best in Raleigh - for good reason ! But today, I'm falling for the Buffalo chix sandwich - another winner. Just the right amount of heat & spice.

    The fried pork belly appetizer is heaven; i mix all of the sauces together. Cuban sandwich rocks. Pork enchilada is awesome and the house bloody mary has a nice bite to it.

    The steak carnitas tacos are excellent! High quality steak and excellent salsa topping. A friend had the chicken tacos and she said they were excellent also.

    Do not sit in their rooftop patio. Its hot as Hades. They are still waiting for permits for umbrellas so its not their fault! Everything else about this place is epic and I love the servers.

    The Pork BBQ Nachos are really good if you ask them to replace the pork bbq with the chicken mix from the chicken tacos. I know it sounds crazy, but srsly. It's GOOD! My friend Prachi suggested it!

    Great place to try craft brews and the food is top-notch as well. Best burger in raleigh, and check out the mantle on the bar wall that displays a pint glass that Obama drank a PBR from.

    The servers are really nice and it is always a good choice for drinks but the food quality here has seriously declined. I keep giving the food another chance but I'm done, it keeps getting worse.
