The Raleigh Times Bar – A Quickie Review

LUNCH: Their burger is really good. I had mine with Habanero Cheddar. And they’ll cook it anyway you want (even rare) so if you’re a wild man like myself (see pic), you’ll love this place. Any sides are an added extra. The fries are the medium-sized/long, limp, and greasy. Personally, I liked them. They’re the grab-a-group-and-dip kind. No fancy dips here, just ketchup. They also have a decent Cuban sandwich.

The music is a fine selection of hits from the alternative/indy rock bands. I’ve heard Phantogram, the White Stripes, Interpol, and the Sonic Youth.

During nice weather, they leave the door open. This lets in flies. If you’re the type that freaks out about flies, then only go when it’s raining.

AFTER HOURS: This is the place to go and see the latest in hipster apparel which generally looks like beards, flannel, and jeans. The beer is good though with a good variety of microbrews. It can get pretty packed in here but the service is pretty quick.

Definitely a place I’ll return to. Look for me there!
