Sarah P. Duke Gardens

420 Anderson Street, Durham, NC, United States
11 reviews

These gardens are decent enough, although some parts seem to be suffering from neglect. The gardens are free but the parking is run by the Duke Campus and follows the same rules. Buy a parking ticket for $1 per 30 minutes.

    The Original Q-Shack

    1.93 mi from Sarah P. Duke Gardens
    4 reviews

    The most central barbecue joint in Durham, the Q Shack is known for its fabulously unhealthy hush puppies and ribs. They have a little bit of everything: smoked turkey, sausage, etc. But their pile o' barbecue is what I come here for. Well, that and the macaroni and cheese. It's damn good. Don't come right at lunch, as there are ...

    Dame's Chicken & Waffles

    1.62 mi from Sarah P. Duke Gardens

    I and my boyfriend's first chicken & waffles...AMAZING. We happened onto this place in downtown by chance. Come for a chicken & waffle dinner and be sure to order the greens. You can customize your order - I had sweet potato waffles which were to die for. Cool atmosphere emphasizing the signature dish's supposed 'Harlem Renaissance' roots. Great staff, impeccable, ...

    Bullock's Bar-B-Cue

    1.46 mi from Sarah P. Duke Gardens
    2 reviews

    If you want BBQ in Durham, look no further. I mean, if you want to go further, head to Allen & Sons. If you expect to be too full with brisket and pork, then Bullock's is your place. This place has been around forever, and is the real deal.

    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 ...

    This Biscuitville has the companywide best biscuit maker. Most of the menu is something—bacon, egg, etc—between a biscuit. The biscuit is good, but more bread-like than flaky.
