David Sadeghi isn’t afraid of putting a peanut butter burger on the menu. Why? Because he loves what he does and likes to come up with crazy antics to keep his staff and customers inspired!
David moved from Iran to the United States when he was 16 years old. Having spent his adult life in the hospitality business, David moved to Chapel Hill to work at Governor’s Club in 1994. He joined Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse in 2000 for 11 years until he began his own hospitality company, My Farina Hospitality, LLC.
His goal? David wanted to deliver a restaurant concept centered around community, one actually built around the demographic the restaurant would serve. He desired to deliver an exceptional product with a reasonable cost. From this, the Town Hall Burger and Beer (THBB) concept was conceived. David asks, “What is better than a great burger and an even better beer and bourbon list?” And that’s why his restaurant offers a craft burger mix on fresh buns with exceptional toppings—all with the hope of enhancing your burger experience.
At Town Hall Burger and Beer – Briar Chapel (THBB-BC), David selects the best quality food and trains his staff to offer top-notch service. He understands the hospitality industry is not everyone; therefore, he strives to secure and teach team members who really love this type of work—and he owes his success to this formula. David’s team is also community-focused; his restaurants participate in charity events, benefitting both community and staff.
From now until January, THBB-BC serves dinner and is open nightly. Starting in February, it will also serve lunch on Friday and Saturday and will be open for lunch Thursday – Sunday from March to October. The restaurant consistently delivers local and national craft beer. This location serves an expanded menu, so you can order not only their famous burgers, but also specials like waffle fry nachos, crab cake tots, salmon tacos and a chicken gyro wrap.
Having lived in Chapel Hill for over 20 years, David loves the northern Chatham County location of Veranda. He had previously worked with the Eco Group team, so it made good sense to open a sister restaurant to the Durham Town Hall Burger and Beer in Veranda. David’s excited about the area’s recent growth. David’s company currently operates five restaurants.
Although a successful restaurateur, David shares his greatest accomplishment is his two children, his daughter Farina and his son Amir, both East Carolina University graduates. When time permits, David enjoys playing sports, especially golf, but admittedly, stays pretty busy running his restaurants.
Whether it’s burgers, beers or bourbon that entices you, come meet David and his team at Town Hall Burger and Beer. They are eager to share their good food and service and to become your go-to place for lunch or dinner.
