This has become my new favorite restaurant! Found it just 4-5 weeks ago and have been multiple times for lunch or dinner with friends. We have loved every dish we've had. The fried green tomato plate with succotash, spinach and shrimp is fantastic. Fried shrimp, catfish and oysters are perfection. The gumbo is so good you want to lick the bowl. Someone ordered the fried chicken last night and ate every scrap. We've shared two desserts and they are wonderful, especially the unusual bananas foster. While they do not yet have a full ABC license they have beers and wine and they do fun things with wine like a white wine spritz. Their sangria is in a class by itself, made in the authentic fashion with so much fruit that you want a spoon when you finish to enjoy the marinated fruit. So happy to have found this place. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed. We especially like eating on the patio when weather cooperates. Do check the website for days and hours of opening.

The food and service was wonderful with plenty of food! I couldn’t decide and got a sampling (cup) of a few items. Literally ate off others plates and absolutely nothing was bad, even the pineapple tea was such a treat!! I’m so disappointed I got so full I was about to pop that I forgot to order dessert but I’m so looking forward to telling anyone who will listen how good this is! Only feedback is I wish they had fountain drink/free refills with the exception of the house made drinks vs canned.

I enjoyed my lunch at this cute spot. Half brisket po-boy with sides of gumbo and salad plus sangria. All was good. The brisket was tender and better than some other local restaurants I’ve been to. I enjoyed my salad and gumbo but couldn’t eat it all so one side would have been enough for me for lunch. The Sangria was delicious and went well with the meal. I’ll be back and will encourage others to come.

Great food, we’re not experts on creole dishes but the flavors were nothing but exceptional. The choice of music was on par with the relaxing and “smooth”, atmosphere. The food came to our table hot and stayed hot until we left. Definitely was not under a heat lamp for extended amounts of time. The chef was very accommodating, checking on customers throughout our meal.
Thank you Succotash!

Susan and Juan at Succotash helped to make our wedding the most perfect weekend we could have possibly imagined. We are so grateful for all their time and patience in working with us over the months leading up to the event and their flexibility in working within our budget. The food itself was phenomenal. Countless guests told us it was the best food they’d ever had at a wedding! Their food is creative, delicious, and can fit any occasion. They were also extremely thoughtful and flexible when it came to accommodating various dietary restrictions. We highly, highly recommend Succotash catering!

Enjoyed exploring this jewel box of a restaurant with fantastic comfort food. I mean if you go to a place named “Succotash”, you have to try it with crispy brisket burnt ends on top. The fried green tomatoes with BBQ shrimp was another level. Friendly, attentive service, despite being crazy busy. Lucked out on a 50% off a bottle of wine feature on Wednesday night. The layers of flavors, so expertly combined, not to mention the perfect smokiness of the brisket, was top shelf. All reasonably priced. Well curated wine & beer selections to compliment the menu. Chef Juan DiGiulio is a master of Creole/Cajun comfort food. Definitely going back!

The food was really good. The service wasn't bad but a bit sporadic. It was a Saturday night. Not a full bar but several beer and wine options.

I know the owner on a professional level and let me tell you i am beyond proud of him ,his family and staff members. I had asparagus with this lemon vinaigrette and a eggplant sandwich for my main course and let me tell you something... I am Haitian and we are the truth when it comes to flavors profile, what Chef juan have created is UNIQUE and you can def taste the love and effort put into the meal preparation . As a vegan myself can say they have a great menu selection that will fill you tummy !
Much success and prosperity guys

Omg! I will say this is one of my top 3 favorite restaurants in Durham. Service is excellent, they really know their stuff when it comes to their menu. It’s definitely worth the wait (20-30mins) for some fresh delicious food! My favorite dish is the sea food gumbo, A must try dish! As well as their well known Brisket!!!
Ps… Don’t miss out on this family own/operated restaurant!!!

Such a hidden gem of Durham. It’s tucked away on Old Chapel Hill Blvd. Great Southern cuisine including some of my favorites: Po Boys, gumbo, and even Muffulettas. Definitely on par with the food you’d get in New Orleans. Service is excellent!

We have been driving by since before they opened and we finally got a chance to stop in for dinner. So glad we did! Our server was excellent, the atmosphere was cozy and intimate, and the food was absolutely delicious. We tried the smash app (potatoes), jambalaya, and brisket empanada. Everything tasted so good. It was an all-around wonderful dining experience and we can't wait to return. Only suggestion would be some sort of kids menu, but that's definitely not a deal breaker. There are some things our kids might eat, but even if not, it's totally worth getting a babysitter and leaving the kids behind. I highly recommend Succotash!

Visited for the first time and the food was wonderful. The wait for the food is long but definitely worth it. I wanted the gumbo but I don’t eat pork and there’s a note on the menu saying they can make it without pork, but it will take an additional 15min. After checking with the cooks, they said they couldn’t do it. A little disappointing since I was very excited about beef sausage and no pork!!

Came here for dinner with friends. I was surprised that it was order at the counter vs seated service. There was a good variety on the menu and also specials but we were also informed that the specials were not yet ready (630 on a Friday evening) we tried the smash app, fried tomato plate, brisket and gumbo. The other thing is that none of our meals came out together. I appreciate the food coming out hot but would recommend setting that expectation when ordering. We will likely be back to try again for dinner and explore the menu a bit more.

F A N T A S T I C. Best brisket I've ever had. Everything I ordered was perfectly seasoned and cooked. My new fave place in town.

After eating at the food truck several times, I finally got to try the brick and mortar restaurant today and WOW! I got the fried catfish platter and subbed the broccoli for the potatoes that usually come with it. The catfish was amazing. The sauce they served with it was flavorful, and their broccoli is one of the tastiest vegetable sides you can find. My husband took one bite of his brisket and said, "Woah! This is REALLY good." I'm glad he liked it so much because I want to go back frequently.
