The food remains excellent with my favorite being the Mediterranean Chicken Pita which I eat like a salad in a wrap bowl. Everything is fresh and served fresh and hot. Minor changes are not an issue. Healthy American food with lots of choices. I also...love the soups and combinations.More

In the realm of quick-casual dining, William's is doing it right. Their breakfast, lunch, and catering options are delicious and reasonably priced. They enjoy getting to know their customers and providing them with a quality dining experience. If you have the time while in Durham...or if you are looking for someone to cater anything from a small to large-sized event, I'd highly recommend them.More

Food consistently good! Had lunch which was a BLT and it was reminiscent of what is made at home. Soups very good as well. Burgers are great! Prices are moderate

Not quite fast food, but not quite sit down. Quality is almost always good. Staff here is usually very friendly.

This restaurant has the best grits I have ever tasted. I usually visit 2-3 times per week. I only order for breakfast. Its definitely gourmet. Food is cooked to order. Prices are decent.

We had a wonderful breakfast! Everything we had was delicious! I had oatmeal with fruit and nuts. My husband had a huge breakfast platter. The corner where the coffee and other beverages are isn't ideal. It gets very crowded with people ordering and others trying...to get beverages.More

Two of us had lunch here. I had the special of brisket tacos. They came three to an order. Had slices of tasty beef, onion strings, and a spicy cole slaw inside. They should take a page from Mexican restaurants and double up on the...tortillas so the taco will hold together better. Overall taste was quite good but maybe too spicy for some. At $9.99 it was a fair price, but no bargain. My wife had a big BLT. It was very good, particularly the tomato slices - all red - no pink or white! The bacon had a lot of flavor and was not overdone. It was $7.49 with no sides so, again, not a bargain. It seemed to take a long while to get the food after we ordered it. We came about 1:15 and the bulk of the lunch rush was already gone.More

My first time at this restaurant recommended by a friend and most likely, I'll not return. Their menu is interesting, but nothing really gourmet about it. Similar to most lunch places around town. Some nice salad and sandwich options, but definitely not gourmet. I found...the people taking orders at the front counter to be rude and lacked basic customer service skills. After the people in front of me placed their order, I walked up to the register to place my order and the woman looked at me and without saying a word just walked away. There was a line of people behind me and no one behind the counter seemed in a hurry or to be bothered to provide service or any direction (it was early lunch time). Finally, I looked past the large cookie display to see a woman standing behind a register. I asked her if I could place an order and she simply said, 'Yes'. Why in the world would she not have looked for guests waiting to order and said something? Really lame counter service. The food arrived in a timely manner and was beautifully presented. I ordered a salad, but it was no better or worse than any other chain restaurant I've visited. Not impressed, definitely not gourmet - I would not make this a high priority to dine at this restaurant again.More

My husband had an omelette and grits. He said they were the best grit he’s ever had! I had the egg white breakfast sandwich on wheat berry bread with spinach and cheese. Delicious!

Where do I start? Terrible format of ordering at the counter and being given a number. Serve yourself coffee in thermal carafes on counter 2 of 5 varieties empty at 8:45 AM. Syrup served in plastic peel open food service packages, margarine not real butter...for pancakes, potato rounds instead of real hasbrowns. All food was served cold! Disgusting!More
