OnlyBurger to open second Durham location

Posted May 6, 2014

A double with bacon, cheese and egg from Only Burger in Durham.

— The popular food truck OnlyBurger will open a second brick-and-mortar location in Durham this August, representatives announced Tuesday. 

The new 1,850 square-foot location will be at American Tobacco Campus, 359 Blackwell St.

OnlyBurger's food truck hit the street in 2008. Two years later, owners opened the first OnlyBurger restaurant at 3710 Shannon Road in Durham. The ATC location will be twice the size of the first one. 

"We look forward to opening at American Tobacco and serving Durham's best burgers to everyone living, working and playing downtown," owner Brian Bottger said in a press release. 

Michael Goodmon, vice president of real estate for Capitol Broadcasting Company, the parent company of American Tobacco Campus, WRAL -TV and WRAL.com, said, “Everyone at American Tobacco is extremely happy to celebrate our 10th anniversary with the arrival of a homegrown hit like Only Burger. It joins a parade of quality restaurants at the campus which will only get more diverse.”

    You guys crack me up. If you honestly believe any of that stuff about downtown Durham, then you know absolutely nothing about downtown Durham. Then again, I'm quite happy that I won't have to worry about you taking up space in the line at OnlyBurger once they open, so I can get my single combo that much faster.

    The crime rate in Durham is trending down for the past 15 years or so; it's not the same old Durham you may think you know.

    As for homicide, those are relatively rare (30 last year). You're more likely to be assaulted or robbed, even then use a modicum of common sense and you can limit your odds of being included in the statistics.

    I love this place! Whenever the truck is around Raleigh I get one. I'm happy for their success in Durham and I hope that leads them to open a Raleigh location soon!

    Excellent point.

    Does anyone know if they deliver to Raleigh? Although the burger does look quite delicious, I'm not sure it's worth the risk of being murdered.

    It's not worth risking the visit to the crime ridden city of Durham.

    We in Durham prefer the plebes stay out. But by all means, enjoy eating Cook Out and shopping at Wal-Mart every Saturday.

    Good looking stuff. Maybe if they get out of the wrong town I will get one. Doubtful they can compare to Char-Grill though.

    Great burgers. Can't get enough of the chili, cheese, and Fritos health bombs ;)
