Fantastic quick burgers for an exceptionally reasonable price. Good meat. Nice crispy fries. Optional beer in the fridge. It might not change your life but it'll change your standard for quick-service burgers. I'd opt for this instead of Five Guys every time.

My family and I went here this afternoon for a quick lunch and man let me tell you they delivered on all levels!!! The food was delicious and well executed. We will definitely be coming back. We tried the lamb, brisket and beef sliders along with the bacon blue burger, fries and onion rings...all was succulent!!! Please keep up the great work.

Only Burger is still my favorite Burger spot and the meat and toppings are always of great quality. It's not as consistent as it used to be, but I still love the breakfast burger with the pimento cheese and fried green tomato. I also really like the bacon wrapped Mac and cheese, it's delicious! The fries are also perfect, and a I wash them down with a good Boylan soda. I like sitting outside and even though it's small inside, I can usually find a spot because it turns over quickly.

We love this place! The burgers are great! My husband loves the Greek lamb burger and fried green tomato burger. Try their fried green tomato slider and jalapeno poppers. They recently added an impossible meat option to their menu. It is life changing! I have not had a burger that good, since giving up meat. So satisfying. They also have a great selection of beers (cans and bottles only).

I enjoyed the burger. They had some more unique topping options. I just got sharp cheddar, tomato, lettuce, and pickle. I did not like the fries. The prices were higher than expected. Sadly, I was told they no longer sell ice cream sandwiches.

These burgers are SO good. One of the best burgers I’ve had. I’m from CA too and these are way better than In-n-out. I usually dislike trying new restaurants because I’m a picky eater..i need everything to be fresh, authentic, natural, homemade-tasting which most restaurants lack. I am blown away by this place! I loved the sauces as well, they taste house-made. The beef is certified & grass fed. I’m not a huge fan of turkey burgers...I took a bite of my daughter’s turkey burger and I was surprised how good it was too. It taste close enough to beef. Must try the food here :)

I visited this restaurant, because of a referral. It's a tight squeeze, fast paced, burger spot. The burger (ket, must, shredded let, tomato) was pretty good. I didn't care for the fries (very thin sliced fried potatoes). Overall, a good meal. I would visit again, if I'm on that side of town...

Had the bacon&blue burger. Small fries with it is plenty of fries. They also sell beer and have some outdoor seating. About $16 for the burger, fries and beer. Well worth it:)

The burger was amazing – just a single with everything, hold the onions. The fries were excellent. Only problem: They didn't hold the onions! thankfully the memory of onions on the burger isn't a problem for me, but some people really can't have them so they should pay a little better attention to the order. But the burger and fries really were outstanding in the end.

Burgers were decent and fries supremely thin. also tried the mac and cheese deep fried squares which were superb! Loved the vintage 50s theme complete with counter seats and glass bottles of soda. Got a chilli cheese burger with fritos and that was good! Just overall not as good as a 5 Guys Burger and lacking a little.

Great burgers, try the fried green tomato slider. These may be the best fries in the area. Craft beers in cans are reasonably priced. Seating area is rather small, but to-go orders are most common.

Small burger joint and big on customer service imo. The menu is straightforward and easy to read. The staff is friendly and they keep the place clean. I enjoy the fries and fried green tomatoes. Worth a visit.

A delicious burger joint with amazing fried food. I enjoyed the burgers we tried quite a bit, but the fried sides were by far my favorite part. The fried pickles and bacon wrapped macaroni and cheese were especially good. I definitely recommend trying the fried sampler to get a taste of a couple of different sides.

When you want the best burger around, this is the only burger that should come to mind. With options for every pallette, including vegetarian and vegan options, Only Burger will blow your taste buds away with juicy burgers and simple-but-perfectly-cooked fries.

Maybe the best casual burger joint in Durham... Seating is limited, but worth waiting. If you are expecting a cheap burger this is not the place. A typical burger, fries, drink is pushing $20. That said, I have been coming here probably once a month for the last 8 years or so. No plans to stop. :)
