Only Burger, the Durham-based food truck and restaurants, will start serving breakfast on weekdays at its American Tobacco location starting Feb. 8.
Owner Brian Bottger sees it as a prime opportunity to serve breakfast to the thousands of workers and residents at the American Tobacco Campus. “With American Tobacco across the street and so many businesses nearby, we believe downtown Durham needs a quick, tasty and affordable breakfast spot,” Bottger said in a press release.
Only Burger rose to regional fame in the early Triangle food truck scene, and parlayed that success into a spot competing in The Food Network’s “Great Food Truck Race” in 2010. Bottger opened a brick-and-mortar location on Shannon Road in Durham in 2010, and the American Tobacco location followed in 2014. The Only Burger truck is still on the road.
The breakfast menu is designed for diners on their way to work. The “Only Breakfast Sandwich” comes with a Latta Farm egg and aged cheddar on a toasted Neomonde Bakery bun ($2.99), while the “Cheesy Omelet” comes with Latta Farms eggs, Homeland Creamery milk, and sharp cheddar cheese ($3.99). Both items can be customized with an array of add-ons including bacon jam, guacamole, and of course an Only Burger beef patty. Silver dollar buttermilk pancakes and the “Breakfast of Champions” (pancakes, two eggs your way, hash brown, bacon, and coffee for $9.99) round out the menu, with additional sides like cheesy hash or brisket hash also available.
Only Burger’s new breakfast menu will be available 7:30-10:30 a.m. Monday-Friday at its American Tobacco Campus location, 529 Blackwell St., Durham.
