Spotted Dog, Carrboro
Hadn't been to this place in age as the food was meh...But I met a friend there last night for dinner and I'm happy to report I enjoyed myself thoroughly and will certainly be back.
They've redone the menu (and refreshed the interior) I had a great time sitting at the bar, there is a wide selection of wines by the glass, had a nice Sauvignon Blanc for $6, there had drink specials, Bloody Mary for $2.75. We then moved to a table & perused the menu, there are daily specials and I had a tuna steak burger chipotle may, sprouts and fries, she the tofu. It was cooked perfectly & the fries were shoestring and nice. They have an extensive veg menu with lots of locally made faux beef, tempeh, which I can't wait to try.
My friend loved her dish. They serve lunch until 5pm (my kind of people) and put some tables outside, which is fun viewing.
I'd say to Hounds who've been here and want a nice local bar with good & reasonably priced food to give it a visit.
