“Authentic ,original and delicious”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

If you like fresh made, no frozen but really fresh made food, this is one of those few places hard to find, small but clean and friendly , excellent service and lied I said, FRESH cook food,I had the Texan and onion rings, the meat was real juicy and the brisket just delicious , onion rings crispy and really tasty, you have to try the fresh made ice cream cookies, I had the chocolate chip with banana ice cream with peanut butter Reese's , you will be in heaven , if you are in durham, this is a must place to eat.

“Really great burgers”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

If you want a really good burger, juicy, cooked the way you want it (medium rare for me and that is hard to get in NC), this is a great place. Beef is nicely flavored and you can order it many ways but I have found that topped with classically with cheese is great. Fries are hand cut and fairly good but would prefer no pepper, just salt, and the fat could be more fresh. Onion rings were not good and had a slight "off" flavor from the frying fat. But the burger makes it worth repeat trips (which we do).

“Under-impressed”
Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

The Only Burger has received a lot of great press and reviews so my wife and I had to check out the place. The burgers are Only OK, a long list of add-ons, but price to quality, the ratio doesn't work.

Limited seating, stand up ordering, little service. Sorry, this was our last trip.

“Great place for interesting burgers”
Reviewed February 27, 2014 via mobile

The burgers here are top notch, especially the more unusual choices such as the lamb sliders. The daily special is almost always an interesting concoction that's worth a try. Burgers seem smaller than comparable places in town (I'm talking about the regular burgers, not the sliders obviously) and it's pricey for a burger joint, though they use very high quality ingredients. There is very little seating inside, and the assortment of tables and benches outside fills up quickly with patrons from the yogurt place next door.

“Awesome burgers”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

Stopped by late on a recent Saturday afternoon with my son. He wanted to introduce me to his favorite burger place in Durham. He had the fried green tomato burger which was a burger with a fried egg, fried green tomato and pimento cheese. Crazy combination but it was very good. I had the slider trio with one cheese burger and 2 fried green tomato sliders. The sliders are just fried green tomato and pimento cheese but they were very good. Nice selection of beers by the bottle and other assorted drinks in a cooler by the door. You place your order and then they call your name when it is ready. The Brick and mortar shop only has 10-12 tables. Only Burger was first known for its food truck. Fries are thin cut and could be a little bit crispier but all in all it was a wonderful lunch. Next time I want to try the lamb slider it sounded yummy.
