5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2015 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I think these folks operated exclusively through a food truck but gained such a following that they opened a small restaurant . . . in fact, they may have opened a second one. Nothing fancy about the facilities, but the people are friendly and the hamburgers are terrific. I recommend the fried green tomato burger.

We walked in and were greeted by a nice hostess. My friend and I picked out a black cherry soda from the cooler (really really good) and ordered. I ordered the Texas which has jalapeños, brisket, an onion ring

The burger was ok. This is like a five-guys joint except their burger isn't as good. Middle of the road burger, with an above average onion ring serving. Good place for lunch or a quick meal. I tried a local elk (or something similar). It was tasteless - but I guess I dont know what I should expect an elk... More

Great crispy onion rings and fried tomato's. Liked my burger, but wish it had less toppings under the bun. Next time I know to ask for. Would have preferred to not have to dig foil wrapped food out of a paper bag for inside dining, but that may just be me. Good menu. Friendly staff. We will be back.

I liked this because it was pretty basic and with some great varieties of burgers. The Veggie burger was really good - not spicy for a change.

My wife had been reading WRAL's website about Only Burger and decided to give it a try. We love a good burger. We got the Carolina burger and it was good. Only advice I would give on the Cole slaw that was on the burger would be to make the Cole slaw finer especially on a burger. Chili on the... More

Love the burgers here! The burger is so good you could eat it plain but the fried green tomato and pimento cheese with egg is off the charts good! There are many other options for toppings! Also have lamb and buffalo burgers but haven't ventured there . . . Yet.

Food truck origins turned into a nice local restaurant is something right up my food alley... too bad my experience with Only Burger was such a disappointment! The menu is prominently displayed online, making it easy to order. After reading other reviews about the crowded eating conditions, I decided to order take out: one regular burger as it comes add...
