    Bars and pubs are the way to go ,since people like to drink their problems and nervousness and embarrassments away instead of facing them head on....Drink your fears away,for a few moments then welcome back to reality and everything is just as you left it and maybe worse snce you can't understand you don't drink and drive.

    Anyone who is starting a bar/restaurant would do well to emulate the CAH plan. They didn't try to get too big too fast and now they are reaping the benefits. It will be great to have them at Glenwood & Tucker to show the posers at Tobacco Road what sports and food are all about.

    A Carolina Ale House in Greensboro would be awesome. There are pretenders, but they are no where near as good as Carolina!

    Their Yelp rating went down the toilet. -aspenstreet1717

    Do people really look at the Yelp rating?

    but of the 800 they claim, how many will provide medical, 401K, paid vacations. We need jobs that provide a little more security than discounted food and beverage as a benefit. - Mr Davis

    Happy much?

    Any jobs are good at this point, but of the 800 they claim, how many will provide medical, 401K, paid vacations. We need jobs that provide a little more security than discounted food and beverage as a benefit.

    They used to be great. Daily lunch specials good daily drink specials. That all disappeared a couple of years ago. Their Yelp rating went down the toilet.
