Bull City Burger & Brewery
A brand new brewery that has good food and a kids' activity center!?! Thank you Bull City!
We love Fullsteam as a family outing (really) so were excited when Bull City opened - we read about how they were catering to families. But we weren't the only ones excited. Their opening was highly anticipated. So much so, in fact, that they had over 1,000 visitors and ran out of food opening weekend. But once they reopened, we were there.
All the food is as organic and natural as it gets. The beef is 100% grass-fed beef. And the food is good! The burgers have a lot of fantastic options, the pickles were especially impressive, and the "dirty fries" are just like I like them: dirty with grease and salt. The interior is made out of a lot of recycled and reclaimed materials. This place celebrates Durham, too. Your order number is a year with a tidbit about something historic that happened in Durham.
Bull City brews aren't available for sample (they aren't releasing their beers just yet, although all the tanks and the brewery are in action). But they do have some other stuff on tap for you. Broylans at the soda fountain; and a really awesome single-dispense wine machine on the wall. (You fill up your card with money, swipe, and then pick the button for the wine you want.)
The kids menu was great, too, and standard burger-place fare. But where Bull City really shines for families is how friendly and welcoming they are. The place is casual, the staff was jovial and happy to help us, and in one corner of the restaurant there is a play area with kid kitchen, puzzles, coloring, and more. Our boys really enjoyed it.
Definitely get yourself over to the all-new Bull City. Quickly. Because there were a lot of people there when we were there and I am already looking forward to going again....we might eat them out of food again...
