Burgers at the Q-Shack (Durham, NC)

  • d

I ran into Scott from Nana's yesterday and he was chewing on what looked like a really tasty burger. I asked him where he got it and he said they were making them at Q-Shack now. (Only at Durham location, not Raleigh). All in all, it looked like a damned fine sandwich.

The thing that really stuck out for me was that he said they grind their own beef, which is huge. Given the whole mad cow deal, I've become a bit fanatic about only buying ground beef from butchers who do their own (the disease is only found in meat that was ground at the slaughter house). Of course, all bets are off when you roll into any restaurant who's buying ground beef. Thus, I've found my new burger joint.

  1. yeah, in durham i think the q-shack burger is where it's at!!! wimpie's is good for a fast-food alternative, but i think that q-shack has the complete package for a real burger.

    1. It's funny that you pull up this old thread. I remember reading it in 2004, saying who this guy, "deltelfchef"?

      I haven't tried the burger at Q Shack though I have rec'd it to others who have liked it. I like the Federal's burger. They also grind their own meat.

      1. After 15 years of the no-meat-but-fish-is-okay-policy, I'm eating pretty much everything. I've found that I'm partial to the burgers at The Raleigh Times. I'll check out the burger at the Q next time I get the urge. Thanks deltelfchef, whoever you are!


        1. loved the tasty burger comment

          Big Kahuna Burger. That's that
          Hawaiian burger joint. I heard
          they got some tasty burgers. I
          ain't never had one myself, how are

          1. Gotta say that my kid (13) finds the burgers at Qshack not so good anymore. He prefers the burgers at Tyler's.
