    I haven't been there in, oh, about 20 years. Back in the day, we'd go to Honey's after the clubs closed. Actually, for us there was just one club, The Power Company. Just after 2:00 a.m., Honey's would fill up with college kids, bikers, and drag queens, and everyone would just eat their burgers and have a merry old time. There was an ancient, eccentric waitress named Champ who smoked like a chimney, and harassed all the customers on an equal opportunity basis. It was fun back then, but I really can't imagine eating at Honey's unless you're in college and you've had so much to drink that you really don't care what your food tastes like.

      I ate at Honey's about 5 years ago. It was okay - it's not that I wouldn't eat there again, it's just that Durham has so many other wonderful places to eat that I don't gravitate towards it.

          I've never been to Honey's before midnight nor have I ever been there sober. Nor has anyone I know. For this reason, you may have trouble finding people to recommend (or even remember) the food.

          Greasy breakfast all day. If that's what you're looking for.

            Greasy spoon good for breakfast at 2 am. In college the rule amongst my friends was that the only acceptable things to order at Honeys were breakfast or dessert. They have a decent ice cream sundae. But why are you asking?

              Good gad.

              ll of the reviews reminiscing about their college days and going there after the bars close have no real idea about Honeys.

              I went there just this morning after I went to the farmers market. I had corned beef hash, potatoes w/ cheese, and coffee.

              Other ocassions, not in the morning, I've had their fried chicken. meatloaf. veggie plate. banana pudding.

              There are *lots* of reasons to go to Honeys in broad daylght!
