This place has been around for decades. Even when they moved the Durham Bull's baseball team to their new modern field across town, King's continued to do a brisk business. When downtown Durham was on the ropes with little more than lawyers offices, a courthouse...More

Great little take out for lunch. Food is cooked to order, inexpensive, and tasty. King's is a Durham tradition for good reason. Don't expect fancy but if you want a quick, greasy, down home treat, wait in line and enjoy.
