We just wanted a quick bite by our hotel and stumbled upon this place. Sometimes you just get lucky. Let's start with the onion rings...goodness gracious. If you like onion rings - just go - you have to. Insanely good. practically a filling meal unto themselves. Burgers were made to order...no issues there. We didn't get too crazy, mostly bacon...

We had planned on going to a brewery to eat, but they had a long line as lots was going on in the area that evening. So someone recommended Only Burger and the food was good, and beer selection awesome. Still like the other place, but we very much enjoyed the food here. Also got to meet one of the... More

This was a small restaurant with friendly and quick service. My husband and I went there to especially try out their burgers. The burgers were pretty thick and juicy, but bland in taste. The onion rings were marvelous!

We have been renovating our house recently and needed a quick dinner. My husband went out to get some lamb sliders, for iced green tomato sliders and fried onion rings. The lamb had tziki sauce and tomatoes had romalade sauce and were very delicious. The onions were crisp and tasty. A great dinner all in all

My mouth waters just writing this review! I had the fried green tomato/pimento cheese sliders...crunchy cheesy YUM! My husband had the outrageously good Carolina burger! This place is just fabulous...you can't go wrong here!

One of the best burgers I've ever had in my life, and the Fries are extremely tasty. Service is really quick, and very easy.

This is the place (or the one on Blackwell st.) we always go when we want to eat burgers. This place helped me for my son to stop saying "I wanna go to McDo*****". We like the outside space by the parking lot with the tree my son climbs all the time. I love their onion rings!

Went tonight to their food truck at the museum of science to get my husband a burger.. it was our first time going. When I got home and he bit into it, the burger was literally raw in the middle. It was hardly even seared on the outside. I posted a picture. So disappointed because we love to support local,... More

The claims about proper food acquisition are enough to please the most delicate environmental sensibilities. Unfortunately, the food is mediocre at best. I was quite underwhelmed. My recommendation: If you want a good burger, (and fries perhaps) Five Guys will do you much better. Or if you're in the Raleigh area, check out b.good, that's "good food" done really well.
