    Dame's Chicken & Waffles

    Try the macaroni and cheese. My favorite dish is the quilted buttercup. I like to experiment with different flavored butters, too.

    Guglhupf Bakery & Patisserie

    2 reviews

    Hmm ... what do I love more: the breakfast pastries at weekend brunch, or the yummy sandwiches at lunch and dinner? The prices are fantastic, the front patio is generally climate-controlled because of the surrounding walls (cooler in the summer, warmer in the winter), and I always run into friends.

    Bullock's Bar-B-Cue

    2 reviews

    Get here early or expect to drive around looking for parking then wait in a long line. The BBQ is good but not fantastic, as are the hush puppies and cole slaw. From the pictures on the wall, it looks like anyone who is anyone eats at Bullock's when they come to Durham.

    Cookout Burger -- Hillsborough Rd.

    1 review

    Let's say you could finish one of their peanut butter shakes in one sitting (it usually takes me two or three tries per shake). You'd find chunks of real-live pb in the bottom of each cup. In addition to their 38 flavors of ridiculously rich shakes (I esp like the cheesecake flavors with real pieces of cheesecake), the burgers are ...

    Simple, awesome, and locally created popsicles. They even have something for your dog. Fantastic for a hot day, but a nice treat year round.
