Had a great plate of pork nachos and local beer. Nice people. We really enjoyed the historical American Tobacco revitalization setting. Hung out here before walking to the Durham Bulls baseball game. I would definitely recommend.

Across the street from the Bulls stadium is a really nice restored tobacco/cigarette factory. In it are a few restaurants. One is the Cuban Revolution. We had the Cuban sandwich with black beans and rice. Very good, but not the same as in Miami.
