Southern Adventures: King's Sandwich Shop in Downtown Durham

Yes, ya'll - this is the perpetual Raleigh kid bloggin' about Downtown Durham. But, it's my blog... and that makes me the boss :-)

Just a quick post so that Adrianne can make her lunch time plans today!

Yesterday I ventured just a few hundred feet (give or take) from the offices to check out King's Sandwich Shop with a few fellow Shoeboxed-ers. Sonny brought food back last week and the fries smelled so good, I had to check this out myself.

I have gone vegetarian, so I was pleasantly surprised to find a black bean "burger" on the menu, alongside regular burgers, hot dogs, bbq, and more. I resisted all urges to add on a milkshake and cookie, but definitely got the fries!

It was a delish $7 lunch and my only complaint is that I asked for "no onions, add jalapenos" and only got jalapenos on my black bean burger. It definitely needed the King's sauce, lettuce, and tomato I was anticipating to avoid being too dry.

King's Sandwich Shop
500 W. Geer Street
Downtown Durham, NC

PS - I don't think that's the exact address, but if you can get there, you'll be able to see King's. It's what was printed on the street sign I was standing by when taking the picture above.

PS #2 - Bring cash. They don't take cards. (Bad form!) So, big thanks to Laura for paying for me :-) I've got your next lunch, Laura!


  1. Thanks Lil Lisa.

    P.S.: Love that I have my own tag on your blog. That's love. :-)

  2. This sounds like a great little place! Will have to give it a try next time I'm over in Durham...
