DURHAM | True Flavors Diner opened in 2015 in an unassuming red brick strip mall in an industrial part of Durham and has since built a cult following for its delicious food which puts contemporary spins on traditional Southern diner dishes. Think things like like spiced Carolina pork omelettes, classic burgers, hand-dipped cherry patio floats, and Southern fried chicken and waffles.
It’s all served in a welcoming space with cosy decor, plush seating, and an open kitchen to watch all of the action. A real highlight is their Ultimate Biscuit Gravy. Fresh baked biscuits topped with scratch made sausage gravy, two eggs done how you like and a whole lot of cheese. Servings are generous and the taste is fantastic.
There’s also a second True Flavours in Durham’s Lakewood neighbourhood. It opened in 2018 and has a similar offering to the original, with the addition of a liquor license.
