I’ve been going to King’s, or as my family calls it, “The Ballpark,” as long as I can remember. My earliest recollections include driving into “town” on a Friday night to “eat out,” meaning eat in the car. I have loved this place throughout the years, and I was so sad when they decided to close.

And I was overjoyed when the new owners decided to re-open this landmark.

Over the years the menu has changed. Now you can get okra—and all beef hot dogs. Vegetarian options, too. Gone are the fatback biscuits and greasy slices of homemade pie.

But the hot dogs are still there, and that is what matters. Great hot dogs and great burgers. I kinda miss the crinkle-cut fries, but again, I’m there for the dogs.

It is a good thing when legends are still around.

Wonderful takeout burger place which also makes some other great sandwiches. Had the shrimp po' bo sandwich which was delicious. Lots of local characters stopping by for lunch. You can take out or eat at several tables overlooking the Old Durham Bulls Ballpark (where "Bull Durham" was filmed).

We had lunch here while on a break during an event at The Rickhouse. An easy walk and really great burger, hot dogs and tater tots. The sweet tea was really tasty too!

Great little take out for lunch. Food is cooked to order, inexpensive, and tasty. King's is a Durham tradition for good reason. Don't expect fancy but if you want a quick, greasy, down home treat, wait in line and enjoy.
