We discovered Only Burgers thru Foursquare, and they said it was worth the drive. They were correct. It would have been 5 stars, but I think they need a better selection of diet sodas. But come to think of it, who drinks diet soda with this great food. Changing the stars to 5

Don't get us wrong, this place serves a very good burger but we didn't see really any difference other than the beer to five guys. It did have a few specialty burger if you were so inclined to have one and if I was going back to Durham and wanted a burger than this would be the place I'd go.... More

Delicious! I had mine with pimento cheese and was in heaven. Try the soda too - black cherry - can't find that in my hometown.

I absolutely love Only Burger and whenever craving a burger I normally end up here. Personally I find this spot much better than other competitors such as Five Guys and Freddy's. The Greek Special is my favorite -- making my mouth water thinking about it! If not terribly hunger try a side! I recommend the fried pickles, fries and the... More

This place in a small shopping center serves a variety of beef burgers but also turkey and veggie burgers. If you have four or more in your group seating is limited with most seating suitable for two people. You order at the counter and they give you food in brown paper bags whether you are eating there or not (no... More

First the restaurant...limited seating but there are 3 stone round tables by the front entrance that are covered by the building facade and have ivy growing over the walls and ceiling. There is also picnic type seating 30 yards away in a grassy area on the other side of the parking lot. We went at a good time and had... More

A good burger, small location with limited seating, so be there early and beat the rush. I have not found a bad meal. If it is full. Just take the order to go.

Only Burger is the best place in Durham for burgers. We've been to Bull City Burgers and numerous bars and restaurants in the area (The Federal, Tyler's, James Joyce, Bull McCabes...), and nothing comes close to Only Burger for taste. We noticed that the menu got an update recently, moving the Frito Bandito Burger (our favorite) and some others that... More

My office is in Durham but I am not that familiar with the local eateries yet. So when my Supervisor offered to buy lunch and suggested this place I was game to try. I ordered a Bacon cheeseburger with a fried eggs and fries...AMAZING!! As full as I was after probably half I had the desire to continue to eat.... More

I love Bull City Burgers, I liked my burger from the Federal quite a bit. Elevation has a decent burger. The top spot for me still goes to Only Burger. Its exactly what I want in a burger. Juicy, thick, tender beef that has flavor. toppings that add to the dish, not steal the show. Aside from one ordering hiccup,... More
