ALWAYS great food, people, and service. Burgers are always juicy, onions and jalapeños always seem to be super fresh. Fries are great, the hot dogs you can't go wrong with, and the hidden gems like the Philly are something you'd want to make sure you get!

The best sandwich place in Durham. Everything you try is top notch. I've had the burger, crispy chicken, grilled chicken, philly... Definitely best tater tots you can find anywhere! I always order fries or tater tots with extra seasoning because they use a mix of spices that is amazing! And their Kings sauce is to die for! Just remember this: they are open 11-4.

Where do I start? The food is relatively inexpensive for the portion sizes you get and the food is always cooked to order. The taste is incredible as it is standard burger shack joint and for that reason you can come here and expect a traditional burger, fries and shake meal that knows what it is and does not try to be anything more and focuses more on the quality of the taste which they have nailed it. If you are looking for a quick bite that is not only filling and tasty. Head on over here !!

This place is popping, a constant line of people ordering at lunch time. The beef hotdog got me wanting another one and the tater tots are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, just right! Definitely coming back for a burger and one of their sandwiches! Took me way too long to check this place out. Highly recommend!

Best burger in town. There is no other. This is it. If you can get there for lunch, you should. All the time. Just stop bringing your lunch to work. You should be giving these people your money instead of whatever your nutritionist told you to eat today. Stop wasting your life. Go eat these burgers.

King’s was a great experience. They get thru the busy line of lunch goers pretty quickly. But if you decide to come during lunch, expect a decent crowd. The menu has the spectrum of grill foods- though when I went they didn’t have some items in stock (Pulled pork sandwich). It didn’t bother me as the server recommended a host of other items. I settled for the Philly cheese steak with some onion rings on the side, my wife opting for a single patty burger and tater tots. Both were really good. I was impressed by the tots being so crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. The onion rings are the battered versions, they are smooth on the outside and have a great crunch, the onion also doesn’t get pulled out which means it’s not over cooked. Burger and Philly cheese steak tasted good, nothing special to note but it hit the spot! They had a picnic table area to eat, it might be limited during lunch due to the number of people but maybe you can ask to split the bench.

One word - Delicious. I see why this place is still around. Great place to visit on a Saturday afternoon and hit Boxcar after. Central location and friendly employees. I ordered a burger and my bf had the chicken sandwich. Both were perfect.

This place is amazing! The fried okra is EXACTLY on point. Best I have had in years, hands down. Went here yesterday, it was so good I'm back today! Friendly and kind staff too. Thank you for this excellent food! (:

Can’t go wrong with Kings! I always get a single burger with tots. It’s more than enough food. But get the double if you’re feeling up to it. Plus, bring your pup and they’ll give them a hot dog!
