Who We Are

About Us

The MOD is a family-owned business that was established with new ownership in 2016. We’ve expanded our space and menu since then. We are known for our wood-fired pizzas, delicious salads, and incredible sandwiches, wraps, and subs. We now have a live music space and offer live entertainment weekly.

Open 6 days a week for lunch or dinner with 43 taps, great wine, and the freshest cocktails anywhere. See why our pizza was placed in the top 5 pizzas in the triangle by the Raleigh N&O.

The Other Side

The Other Side is a sports bar/entertainment space where you can enjoy our full restaurant menu, a beer or cocktail, play pool, play a competitive game of corn hole, or listen to an awesome band. Our bar is a work of art, and we offer a wide selection of cocktails, wine, rotating drafts, and entertainment for everyone!
