I am very sad to say that the Flip Side is closed. The group that owns then ( and also Rukas and Smokehouse) decided to close both the Flip Side and Rukas, and I hear that the Smoke house is up for sale (perhaps already...More

We've had lots of great burgers here during our visits to Highlands but when we went there yesterday (10/4) it was gone! If you call the phone number you get a "mailbox full" message. We had to leave for home this morning so couldn't investigate...More

We love the burgers and sandwiches at Flip Side. We visit Highlands frequently and skip breakfast for a GREAT lunch. We love it that our golden and aussie can sit outside on the terrace with us (and enjoy a fry or two).

Our second time eating here. This place is nothing fancy. If you want a good burger, you need to stop. All types of burgers cooked to your order. Good sweet tea and a large beer selection. The service is great. I would come back again.

Good beer and good food but always understaffed. If you have the patience it's worth the wait. Good NCAA beers and great value, but service is very slow and the kitchen needs more bodies to get food out. I live in highlands so I'm a...More

Popped in here for lunch today. Glad I did! They have NC beers on tap and awesome burgers! I got the Southern Burger which has pimiento cheese and bacon. Dee-lish! Cole slaw was nice and wet as well, which is the way I like it....More
