When the Boston Globe visited Geer Street Garden, they said, "Owner Andy Magowan transformed a dilapidated brick building and onetime gas station into a hopping dining and drinking spot. Favorites include the Reuben sandwich and fried chicken plate."

Southern Living also called out Geer Street as being one of the "best bites" when it named Durham the Tastiest Town in the South, citing the large pasture-raised burgers. Other options include old school chicken and dumplings, a grilled pimento cheese sandwich, and tamales.
