King’s Sandwich Shop, Downtown Durham

DURHAM | King’s Sandwich Shop is a Durham institution, and has been selling burgers, hot dogs, hand dipped shakes and fries to locals since 1942.

Located in Downtown Durham, King’s actually closed down in 2007 but was reopened in 2010 thanks to local entrepreneur TJ McDermott. Mc Dermott spruced the place up and brought everything up to code, keeping all the old favourites on the menu but making sure that only the best quality ingredient were used. Today, King’s is one of several businesses enjoying life in this rejuvenated part of Downtown.

The tiny venue is popular with those looking for a pre or post game feed before/after watching a game at the ball park, and with local workers looking for a tasty lunch. Try the famous cheeseburger, red hot dog, black bean burger, or the Cackalacky King – a BRAT (hot dog bun), loaded with pulled pork and house made slaw.

This part of Durham might be rapidly gentrifying but, thankfully, some things have stayed just the same.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
