Great Burgers and GREAT prices!

This place is so delicious. Because of its reputation it tends to get busy and has little seating, but the kitchen is fast and the food is good! Build your own burger or get a monstrous special then head over to the DPAC for a broadway-quality show

The food is not bad, but it used to be so much better. It seems great taste and great customer service were a limited time offer. The last burger I had was OK, but nothing compared to what the burgers were for the first couple of years or so that the brick and mortar version came on the scene. I've... More

We went to Only Burger for the first time after reading about it on Trip Advisor. Both my husband and I got the Only Burger. We got my son the grilled cheese. We both shared fries with the spicy cheese dip and had ice cream sandwiches for dessert. Burgers were good, a little bland so I might try different toppings... More

My mother wanted a burger for Mother's Day lunch, so we thought we would try this place. It is tucked back in a cute little Durham neighborhood. My mom had a more traditional burger and loved it. It was cooked on the medium side, which is how she likes it. I had the Famous Fried Green Tomato Burger. It was... More

The first Thursday of the month the renowned Only Burger sends their food truck to Oval Park. Families come en masse to eat and let their young children play. We chose an Only Burger because of their reputation and it and the fries were great. Can't wait to eat one again!

My first review gave the "lay of the land" so to speak. This review though is necessary because I stopped by on my way back from VA to Charlotte and had the Famous Fried Green Tomato burger and it was outstanding. I had turkey instead of beef. I have had a few other fried green tomato burgers but the tomatoes... More

Many burger specialty shops are popping up. This one has quality at every turn. Good quality meats! Enjoyed a bacon cheddar burger doubled. Fries were delicious and service was fast. All four of us enjoyed our burgers. My wife said the side of mac and cheese was the best she'd had, next to her own. Note to the uppity.....it is... More

I had an only burger with pepper jack cheese and fries. Yum! The best burger I've ever had. Somehow I had room for the handmade ice cream sandwih. My only complaint, there's not one back home in indiana.

We visited Durham and asked a local somewhere inexpensive and great to eat. He suggested Only Burgers and we really enjoyed it. They have quick service and were friendly. I had a veggie burger which I'd describe as "good." Not a super fresh vegetable/black bean kind of veggie burger but a patty that was thrown on the grill type- however... More

good, fast food I had the Carolina burger with chili and slaw. The slaw was slightly bitter, so I left with a bad taste in my mouth. I will try them again, but it is a bit pricey for a burger.
