Durham Food Trucks

As innkeepers of Morehead Manor Bed and Breakfast, we (Monica and Daniel Edwards) are thankful to live in Durham, where Southern Living magazine calls it, “The Tastiest Town in the South.”  In addition to our wonderful restaurants, the following favored food trucks can be spotted across various areas of the Bull City.  Some have gone on to have a physical store in addition to their food truck.  Local residents and new visitors all love their delicious and unique food!

The American Meltdown Gourmet Melts food truck serves melts and grilled cheeses crafted from local bread and local eggs and cheeses. People can taste delicious creations like The Orchard, made with cheddar, sliced apples, rosemary, and ham.

http://kokyubbq.com/Kokyu BBQ is an acclaimed member of Durham’s well-known food truck scene. The graffiti-painted truck has been a frequent sight around Downtown Durham since it opened in 2010, selling slow-cooked meats and fresh produce.  Kokyu’s Korean barbecue and other dishes  (like duck fat chaat, kimchi dillas, and crispy pork gyoza) have made plenty of fans, including The New York Times, who praised the mobile purveyors in a write up.


Only Burger began as the first food truck in Durham, and earned great reviews from notable sources like The New York Times. They became so popular that they opened a physical location in addition to their food truck.  Their menu is a classic one built on burgers and fries, but specials include toppings like fried green tomatoes and fried eggs.

Opening originally as a modified and pink-painted mini-school bus and adding a brick-and-mortar location in 2013, The Parlour serves handmade ice cream. They source their ingredients from local farmers whenever possible and often rotate their flavors to match what is in season.
