Very Disappointed – We went to Abby Road at 6:30 on a Sunday evening. It took 20 minutes before someone took our order and another 30 minutes to be served a hamburger. The silverware had old dried up food on it. The server brought glasses to the table with his hands inside of the glasses. When they cleaned the table, the just scooped the food onto the floor and left it there. My husband loved the hamburger. I had a hard time eating wondering what the kitchen looked like. We will not be going back. This is a bar for college kids who like loud rock music.
Good burger... – I finally was tended to and got a burger... I hear about their burgers all of the time but after the terrible service I doubt I'll be back.
Great local bar – Easily the best burger around! Also good is the humus appetizer and buffalo chicken sandwich. Great beer specials. It's smoky, but January will be here soon. Trivia is always fun on Wednesdays. Highly recommend this bar.
Amazing burgers - new owners made great improvements – Been going regularly, weekend afternoon staff are excellent. Burgers are enormous and tasty. Best place in Cary for a veggie burger with a ceaser side for our vegetarian teen. Would love to see fresh battered fish on the menu but it's best fish n chips on offer in town. Amazing value as I can feed a lot of us for 2/3s the cost and get big tasty portions.
I am the walrus – The takeout orders have Red Gold ketchup in them. WTF??? It's bad enough they don't serve Heinz ketchup, but Red Gold is just silly. Chek Cola, Meisterbrau, and Presidents Choice can't be far behind.
Great atmosphere - horrible service – I went there for dinner the other night and the bartender ignored me for about 5 mins. when I tried to order my drink. Then after waiting about 10 mins. for my soup, (which I thought he had forgotten about) he said "Oh - let me check. They might have left it in the microwave. This was on a Monday night, so it wasn't even crowded.
I'll put my money into another bar, thank you. I refuse to be treated poorly when spending my money on food fare and tip.
Awesome burgers! – The burgers at this place are amazing and affordable. I tried Abbey Road last week for the first time and was extrememly impressed with the kindness of the staff and the great food, and best of all it was affordable. We had two burgers and a couple beers, and the bill was only 25.00, this would have easily cost close to 40.00 at Red Robin and the quality of the food at Abbey road is much better. Everything is fresh, the burgers are big and juicy, and fresh. Ranch dressing is to die for. Portions are huge so bring your appetite or prepare for left overs. I was so impressed last weekend, we decided to go again this weekend but the experience wasn't as good. The food was still great but this little place doesn't have the man power for large crowds. I recommend and early or late meal.
Best burgers in Triangle – I frequent Abbey Road about 3 times a month and the burgers are amazing. What makes them better than others? - First of all they are made fresh and are not unthawed patties like most other places. Secondly when you ask for a burger medium - you get it medium!!! What a novel concept. Third, the lettuce, tomatoes and pickles used for toppings are fresh and make the burger much more flavorful. I recommend the Ringo with bacon for a burger. If your not in the mood for a burger than the ribeye steak sandwich is excellent. The beer is inexpensive relative to other places that I've been, they have a good beer selection and they actually have Labatt Blue on tap!!!!! Seating can be very tough to get especially on Fridays during dinner hours and the waiting area is very small so expect to stand if you don't get seating right away. I believe smoking is only allowed in the bar area as well. This is a great little authentic hometown bar/restaurant that can only be found here in the Triangle... its not found in 800 different other locations in the US. You won't find shrimp poppers, pizza shooters or extreme fajitas but what you will find is a great meal for a great price.
Terrible Service – After all the positive postings it was a very disappointing experience. Not family oriented, sevice in the Bar area is non-existant. I had the worst wings I've ever had.
