Burger guy is in love

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... read 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.

Loved the taste and it has beef brisket on top of the patties with the fixins. Wish we had a place like this in MN. Also spend $3.95 and get the appetizer sampler of fried pickles, onion rings and green tomatoes! Hint: if you want a little sweet after your meal walk about 100 ft. Down to Tutti Frutti which...

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.
