“Nice little dive bar with decent food”
Reviewed 24 January 2013

We stopped here for lunch, on the fly. Sign outside said "Best Chili in Town", so we had the Chili. It was good, served differently than I'd had before, and was definitly filling! Nice selection of beers and good staff. This is a decent little dive bar with good food, that sums it up.

“Good for when you're looking for nothing specific.”
Reviewed 16 January 2012

I like Cary Street Cafe. It's not actually in Carytown (which is a plus in my opinion), but the location is still pretty good. Although, I usually have them deliver to me. It's nice to get delivery from a place that's not just a pizzeria or New York chinese take-out. Their sandwiches are decent, burgers are pretty good, and the wraps are good too. You can probably find better sandwiches, burgers, and wraps at other places, but honestly Cary Street is consistently solid. The people there are usually cool too. Very laid back. Also, one thing that Cary Street does that no one else does (to my knowledge at least) is deliver beer and cigarettes. I don't really drink or smoke, but I gotta give them points for that.
