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.

Tried this today for the first time overall was delicious. They have a variety of stuff sandwiches to choose from as well as, vegan options,hotdogs, and salads. They also have shakes there. Its a small little place, shack style, you go up to the window and order your food and they have a pick up window. There is no indoor seating but they have picnic tables and patio tables next to the shack. They are located also right downtown. I tried their fried okra and hotdog and they were tasty actually had flavor to it compared to other places I have gotten fried okra which was nice. Prices are decent nothing to crazy. However they are only open for a few hours a day the latest being 4pm.

The burger was satisfying. Considering the state of the world, what can you really expect from people these days? A nice burger is some consolation.

King’s sandwich shop is this great little corner walk up space in The heart of Downtown Durham. Seems like a good place to go after a night of drinking. They have some outdoor seating but not much. I have the carrot dog which was good and novel to order but I would not get it again. Stick with the veggie dogs. Tots are good too.

Killer sandwich! Pulled pork. Fries were warm but not hot/fresh. Taste ok. Had a light dusting of seasoning. Don't forget to add salt to your fries before you leave; I won't make that mistake again. Could be good for others if they don't want salt. It came altogether in a box which is great on the go(see pic) quick friendly professional
