Big burgers, a generous craft beer selection, and the deep Sunday brunch menu keep the outdoor patios packed at both Triangle Char & Bar locations. The menu offers a substantial line-up of tacos and salads, but it’s the grass-fed beef burgers and their daring toppings — the big hunk of pork belly on the Wilbur, the chorizo, fried egg, and jalapeño on the Hot Sh** — that get the most attention. Sprinkled among them are some clever munchies, like a selection of egg rolls ($8.50 each) filled with shrimp and grits or pulled pork and collards and a bowl of popcorn ($4) tossed with sea salt, white truffle oil, and fine wisps of parmesan cheese. With their firmer texture and stronger flavor, those grass-fed burgers have sparked heated debate among diners, but the funky, open environment and creative menu bring ’em back for more. —Robert Moss Dish (Winter 2013)
