Check out these gems if you're in my neck of the woods- Shady Acres. This small but mighty neighborhood is bound by Ella blvd., North 610, North Durham and West 15th Street.
Love this place. Huge patio and fantastic burgers. Watch for his off-menu burgers (waffle, hatch chile, brisket), they rock! Great bottle beer selection as well.
A slew of infused tequilas, Victoria on tap, and awesome food. And you can't beat the huge patio.
