Great for a quick bite. They have good food and serve all the fast food sides (crinkle cut fries, tots, onion rings, chips). I especially like the Philly cheese steak.

For what it is, a walk up order type place, King's is amazing and has been doing it in Durham for years. I think it is better today than ever. Burgers, dogs, fries, onion rings, and some other sandwich options are not fancy, but they certainly are done very well. Lines can get long especially at lunch, but they keep it moving for the most part. Order at outside window and food made fresh to order. No indoor seating, but a few picnic benches and tables. Very limited parking but usually ok as there is street parking too.

My wife and I stop by King's Sandwich Shop for lunch today. We both enjoyed our meal. Pricing was good. I had the Texas Burger and the wife had Shrimp Po Boy with their King sauce. The sauce tastes good. The Texas Burger was a 2/3 Patty with pull pork on top with two onion rings and BBQ sauce. It was pretty good only con was the buns were a little stale. I would recommend going here for good food and cheap eats. Great for a quick stop.

I'm so glad I found this lil place on the corner. Yesterday was my first time going.my husband and I ordered a PO boy and a chicken sandwich. The bread was so fresh and the meat was really flavorful. The woman at the counter was friendly. I'd gladly return.

Never heard of this place, but I was looking for some place to eat and I saw this. Decided to eat here and it was was amazing! The wait was long but I figured I’ll wait. The hotdogs are really good! Also, the fresh lemonade was great! I will for sure come back here again!

Great customer service! This was complemented with very good food. The burgers are generous and cooked to order. They are very flavorful and juicy. The fries are superb. Great little local sandwich shop.(Original post, above, was made about 5 years ago.) I am not local but recently (July 2019) had another opportunity to visit this fantastic local treat. They are consistent - still very friendly customer service and delicious, enjoyable foods. King's Sandwich Shop is worth making a side trip! Thanks!

Super juicy burgers here! This unassuming corner spot is really good! The people working here are a fun group and worked really fast. I had a double burger and it was phenomenal. It is a high stack burger, and the king sauce was really tasty (way better than Mac sauce). I would highly recommend this place!

Red hotdog all the way and onion rings were great. Good amount for the price. Even though the temp was in the upper 80's outdoor seating was nice and cool with industrial size fan. Would highly recommend!!

Such a great little dive sandwich shop in Durham. Good greasy food for when the mood hits! Definitely one of my favorite places!

Got the Philly cheese steak all the way and it was nothing less than exceptional. Lots of grilled shaved steak, plenty of peppers and onions and even had sliced banana peppers mixed in! Bread was just right. Hearty enough to hold all the juicy steak and veggies but soft enough to enjoy. Had a side of fried okra to go with it and finished with the perfectly balanced not sweet and not tart fresh lemonade. 20/20 will return!

Wow. The food was AMAZING. I got their special, the large meatball with prosciutto bits and Home made pasta. My boyfriend got the chicken Parm with penne. We split a margherita pizza too. All of it was absolutely amazing. I wish we could relive the meal! The vibe was cozy and relaxed. Our waitress was really friendly and helpful! She was also the hostess.

The chili red dog is destination food. Everything else we had was also great but the dog is next level. Also eaten: cheese steak, fried okra, fries.
