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.

    Cosmic Cantina

    1920 Perry Street, Durham, NC, United States
    0.67 mi from Sarah P. Duke Gardens
    2 reviews

    I have a soft spot in my heart for Cosmic Cantina. It is a hole in the wall kind of place where you walk up an interior graffiti-ed staircase to a not much more polished dining room with an open kitchen where you order and wait for your west coast style burrito. I think the food is better than Moe's, ...

    The Original Q-Shack

    2510 University Dr, Durham, NC 27707
    1.93 mi from Sarah P. Duke Gardens
    4 reviews

    The Original Q-Shack (look for "Original" in the title since there are others) is a good place for a variety of BBQ. The pork is good and the sides are decent. It's not the best BBQ in town, but it's often in the list that locals recommend. Part of that is ease of access, I'm sure.

    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

    2706 Durham-Chapel Hill Blvd #1, Durham, North Carolina
    1.91 mi from Sarah P. Duke Gardens
    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.

    Cookout Burger -- Hillsborough Rd.

    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 ...

    Food was not great and service was worse. Rude and slow - not fun. It was busy but they could have made more of an effort. Won't be back.

    Beyú Caffé is downtown Durham's prized jewel. From the food and coffee to the entertainment and atmosphere, you're going to have a superb time here. If you love jazz, coffee, and good food, this is the place for you. They have an extensive coffee menu, as well as different types of coffee liqueurs, mixed drinks, and wines. Their dessert case ...

    Fantastic German bakery that added a nice cafe a few years ago. Great place for breakfast or lunch, and has a good mix of students on laptops and locals chilling out.

    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.

    The decoration of this place is really nice and the place is well lit. The food was great except the walnut shrimp is not the traditional walnut shrimp I'm used to. There was no mayonnaise and the shrimp isn't battered and then fried. I'd come back for the sesame beef.
