North Carolina Triangle Reviews

It seems like just yesterday that I moved to the Triangle but it has been over a decade. It is hard to believe. In this time I have dined, shopped and pranced around almost every area of Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill and the surrounding areas. This page will be devoted to all of my local reviews. It will consist of restaurants, bookstores, clothing boutiques, college stadiums and much more. If you would like to have your business reviewed please reach out to me at and I will gladly venture to your neck of the woods.

This resource will be broken up into regions. As it expands, each region will have categories depending on the number of businesses in the local area. Without further ado:

Saxapahaw, NC

This is one of the best, unknown, small towns in the state of North Carolina. It is along the Haw River and there are some amazing business owners that work together. Here are the reviews:

Flying Beagle Bookstore Reviews: One of the best bookstores I’ve ever shopped at. Don’t let the size fool you; just because it is small does not mean it doesn’t pack a punch. Make sure to stop by and tell the owner, Eric, that Jesse sent you. Grab a few books from his fiction/thriller section. There is some quality on those shelves.

Maple View Mobile Homemade Ice Cream Reviews: Although not technically in Saxapahaw, that is where I met Jerry Richardson. He is down there every Saturday for the Haw River weekly summer concert series. Stop by his ice cream truck and get the natural strawberry ice cream. You cannot go wrong.

Haw River Ballroom Cup 22 Coffee Shop Reviews: If you are looking to get away from Durham or Chapel Hill and you want a quaint place to study or read this is the spot. If you want a break there is a ping pong table downstairs. Bring a study buddy and see who is the king or queen of table tennis.

Chapel Hill, NC

Chapel Hill East 54 Luxury Apartment Reviews: The newest upscale Chapel Hill apartments will be in front of the UNC Finely Golf Course on 54. These apartments will likely be completed by September of 2014 and will feature a unique living opportunity to the common college apartment complexes. If you have considered Meadowmont, Southern Village or other upscale apartments in the Chapel Hill area you may want to check out these brand new options.

Sup Dogs Franklin Street Reviews: A cheap meal with a college feel. When on Franklin Street for lunch or dinner this is a great option if you are looking for a fulfilling meal for under $10. Bring some friends along as it is a great place to hang out.

Campus Calzones Franklin Street Reviews: While Campus Calzones has yet to open on Franklin Street we can use the menu from the ECU/Greenville location to predict what this restaurant will offer. It looks like a late night Franklin Street alternative to BSkis.

Bean and Barrel Governors Club Chapel Hill Reviews: When looking to enjoy a unique coffee shop atmosphere near Chapel Hill head out to the Governors Club and try Bean and Barrel. They offer drinks, food and very fast Internet. It is also less than 20 miles from the UNC campus.

Sophie and Mollie’s Chapel Hill Boutique Reviews: This boutique opened during the summer of 2014 on Franklin Street. If you know where IP3 and Kipos is you know where Sophie and Mollie’s is. It is right across from IP3 and Al’s Burger Shack so make sure to stop by and try on some trendy clothing.

Chapel Hill Social Media and Internet Marketing Company – Information about the services and packages that are offered by yours truly. These packages include SEO, website design, PPC, social media management, copywriting and content creation. Contact me for more information.

Durham, NC

Fullsteam Brewery Reviews and Tour: Fullsteam is a great place to bring the kids or dog to enjoy a great tasting beer. I am not a beer drinker but everyone that I know that is loves this place. I had the opportunity to take a tour and I learned a great deal about this amazing local business.

Pittsboro, NC

Pittsboro Roadhouse Reviews: Pittsboro is just a stone’s throw away from Apex and Cary. When looking to get away from Raleigh the downtown Pittsboro scene offers some unique opportunities. Check out the historic location of the Pittsboro Roadhouse; their food is great.

Mebane, NC

Muffins Ice Cream Shoppe Reviews: This small ice cream shoppe in Mebane, North Carolina offers everything from Maple View Ice Cream to Cheerwine floats. If you are ever in the downtown Mebane area stop by the location on 4th Street. It is a great way to cool off during the summer heat.

Smithfield, NC

Heidi’s Two Wheel Cafe Reviews: Heidi’s Two Wheel Cafe offers a unique dining experience in Smithfield, North Carolina. Those near Kenly, Micro or Clayton, North Carolina should definitely take the drive to Heidi’s to enjoy the burgers, seafood and hog wings.

[…] Yelp is a beast! For some reason I have neglected it for many years but have seen the err in my ways. I am always looking at ways to help businesses make more money but somehow Yelp slipped through my fingertips. That is no longer the case. In June 2014, I dove head first into Yelp. I started my personal account and started doing as many reviews as possible. I wanted to test the waters. What exactly makes Yelp such a powerful tool? After less than a month I am convinced that the future of small business growth starts… Read more »


[…] If ever there were an idiom that describes Franklin Street at UNC-Chapel Hill, it would be this: Out with the old, in with the new. If you live in the area, you know that Franklin Street is somewhat of a revolving door as far as restaurants go. The business environment is never stagnant; instead, the face of Franklin is always in flux, which provides a constant duke’s mixture of different flavors and cultures to enjoy. After all, isn’t that what UNC is all about? For more on reviews of restaurants near UNC or neighboring towns use this resource: North… Read more »


[…] After chatting for a few minutes about her experiences, Simpson let me do some exploring. I began to get a real feel for the kind of impression she wanted the boutique to have. Mannequins were decked out in chunky jewelry and statement necklaces. Everywhere there were bold prints and bright colors. When I asked Simpson about her fashion inspiration, she discussed her admiration of the all-out glamour of the “works of art” at the Grammys and the Oscars, and this absolutely rings true in her store. With designers like Naked Zebra, FreePeople, and Judith March, the clothes are fun,… Read more »


[…] Incorporating Yelp or other review sites into your content allows you to improve your business and create relationships with your clients. Give a shout out on social media and thank the people who took the time to write a review. It is a smart way to boast about the success of your business, while, at the same time, your clients are happy because you acknowledged them. In a way, you are secretly saying, “Hey check out the good job I did,” but you are also showing that you care about your clients and their loyalty. Reviews are extremely important;… Read more »

[…] I was shocked to see that the luxury apartments were not finished by the beginning of the school year, August 19th. This tells me that those living in these particular luxury apartments are not traditional college students. They might be graduate or Ph.D students but they are not living in the East 54 apartments while trying to finish up their undergraduate years. I would assume these apartments are going to be well over $1000 or $1100, a month, for a one bedroom with a study or den.
